Although the sites are very spacious in the north camp ground we had a very tense stay at the park. The water, except for the cold showers, was turned off and we needed to go close to one mile to access potable water. Toilet paper was empty on several occasions in the facility. We were truly harassed after the ten pm "quiet time" for talking around our fire. This was particularly disturbing as we treasure the time with friends at evening fires. The nightly warning from the park personnel was not enough evidently, as we also had a knock on on our door the next morning to "remind us" of the restrictions. We have been camping for over 30 years and have never been so frustrated for simply trying to enjoy "Pure Michigan".

This is a GREAT park. There was plenty for our 2 small children to do (3yo and 6 yo). The site are level and sandy. No water or sewer at the sites, but had nice filling area near the dumping station. The restrooms were VERY clean, almost cleanned too often (one seemed to always be closed at any given time). The showers are not gender specific and great if you need to bathe children. The site map is misleading, as there is now a cabin next site #40 instead of a play area. The sites don't have great views of the water, but we could hear the waves at night as we slept. The is plenty of shopping (Walmart and Meijer) just a few miles south of the park of anything you might have left at home. Be sure to travel into Port Huron and check out the stuff to do there too. Great park and we will be back!

We camped there last year and liked it a lot. We were on site #16, which was very large. It's also adjacent to a swingset, which can be good or bad depending on whether or not you have kids. One thing to note about Lakeport, is that none of the sites really have a lake view, or at least not a very good one: a row of trees separates the "lakeview" sites from the lake. There are some gaps in the trees, the biggest being between sites 24 and 26, so you could probably see a glimpse of the lake from sites 24, 25, 26, or 27. In any event, none of the sites are directly on the lake, but a very short walk will get you to a long, beautiful beach. There are a lot of rocks underfoot in the shallow part of the water, so I recommend water shoes. But once you get 100' or so out, the rocks thin out then finally disappear, revealing a nice, soft, sandy bottom.

Lakeport SP is located on M-25 approximately 15 miles north of Port Huron. It is situated between M-25 and the rocky shores of Lake Huron. The park has a total of 284 modern campsites located in two campgrounds. The North park is older and a little more rustic.The south campground is newer and consists of 56 large grassy lots, with blacktop pads. Each site provides electricity and a picnic table. There is a modern toilet/shower building in each campground. The restrooms were fairly clean but only contained two showers for men and two for the woman. This can make for a long wait for your morning shower. There were also no shelves or anything in the shower for your soap or shampoo. A mile of Lake Huron beach is adjacent to the campgrounds so on warm sunny days you can relax on the beach. This also provides opportunities for many other water-oriented activities like fishing and boating. Although the weather didn't allow us to enjoy the beach the view is worth a thousand words. Even Numbered sites 16-48 are waterfront sites but 16-30 probably offer the best view of the lake. We arrived at about 6pm and the waterfront sites were gone. Almost all of the sites are big, roomy and full of trees. There were a few sites throughout the park that were very un-level so I would suggest driving through the park and picking one out. There were plenty of hiking and biking trails through the woods and along the shores that provided a view of may wild flowers in bloom. There were also a few playgrounds throughout the park for the kids to burn off all that energy created by the marshmellows. I also noticed that DNR officers patrolled the park day and night. All in all I would say this park offers some great camping and we will visit it again when the weather is warmer. Early May weather is just too un-predictable.
