Park Description from the State website

Lying along Lake Huron, Lakeport State Park provides southeast Michigan residents access to the Great Lakes.

The Franklin Delano Roosevelt (south) unit of Lakeport State Park is a day use area situated one mile south of the camping area and is also adjacent to Lake Huron. Visitors can enjoy the beach, and there are many areas for secluded picnics, bird watching, or just relaxing. The day-use area provides many picnic tables and barbecue grills plus horseshoe pits, volleyball nets, and a baseball diamond. US-25 runs through the park and divides the day use area into two areas. A pedestrian overpass provides the day user access to both these areas.

Campground Info from the State website

The park has two distinct units separated by the village of Lakeport. A total of 250 sites are divided between the two campgrounds. All sites have a picnic table, fire circle, electricity, modern toilet/shower buildings along with several pull-through sites and camp pads for ease of leveling campers.

Located in the larger campground is one of the few remaining campground stores. In addition to the usual fare, the store also sells campfire wood.

Located in the newer campground are two mini-cabins available for rent. The cabins are designed to sleep four people, with bunks and mattresses provided. The cabins each have electricity and lights. Outside each cabin has a picnic table and a fire circle.

How to get to the Campground

Drive north up I-94 to Port Huron. Exit onto M-25 and drive north about 9 miles to the park. Note, the campground is north of the day-use park (north of town).

Soft ice cream in the camp store. Nice modern showers in both north and south campgrounds.
Crappy Cingular cellphone service that routes calls through Canada. Verizon service is okay.
Lots of shade trees. Some sites are a bit uneven. Most sites are a good size.
Very nice beach right at the north campground.

Personal Rating

From Alan: Two thumbs up for the campground and restrooms and one thumb down for the longer drive from home, but its worth the drive if you stay longer than two days.
