Lake Huron Campground – Carsonville, MI
Lake Huron is a very large and modern campground. They have 395 sites, but there are a lot of open spaces during the week. I’ve heard on holiday weekends it fills up, but otherwise it’s not very crowded.
The campground has a general store, arcade, heated pool and a nice size lake with a beach area. There are also cabins to rent on the other side of the lake. They have weekend planned activities, mostly for the kids, but they had a Murder Mystery Weekend while we were there, which was fun for the adults too. They also have basketball, volleyball, horseshoes and a playground for the kids. Mini-golf is on site and open to the public, as is the Pizza Cafe and the ice cream shop.
This site is gated (need a code to get in), which we liked. It is one of the cleanest campgrounds we have been in, and the restrooms were a surprise; slate floors, redwood benches in the heated showers. Very nice details. Same with laundry areas.
It’s a little out of the way, a good half hour north of Port Huron and an hour and a half from Detroit, but it was an enjoyable discovery. Glad we stopped here and plan to go back later in the fall.
