Lakeshore Park Campground - St Ignace, Michigan

We parked Rosie, our 25 foot Airstream trailer, about two weeks earlier at a park along Lake Huron that overlooked the Mackinaw Bridge from the south side. We noticed as we were parking Rosie in the Lakeshore Park Campground that we were once again looking at the Mackinac Bridge. This time our view was from the north side of the bridge and along the shoreline of Lake Michigan.

It doesn't matter if you are looking at the Mackinaw bridge from the north or south sides, it is an impressive sight to see. It is also impressive at night when it is lit up with colored lights.

There is a road behind the campground separating it from Lake Michigan's shore. The road wasn't busy and didn't impair our view of the bridge or of Lake Michigan.

We searched for a geocache hidden near the park along the lake's shore. We knew that someone found it earlier that day, but we could not locate it and gave up our search.

The camping sites were closer together than we would have liked. Out site was deep enough that we could hitch up the night before we left and the truck was not protruding on the road.

Here are some specifics about this park:
  • Our site had 20, 30 and 50 amp power.
  • Our site had both water and sewer connections.
  • Our site was a back-in with a view of Lake Michigan.
  • Our site was grass and close to level.
  • Our site had a picnic table, but it was in a difficult to use location and too heavy to move.
  • Restrooms and showers were in the center of the park. They were clean and functional.
  • The park provided reasonable Wi-Fi service.
  • AT&T placed two bars of 4G voice and data service over our site.
  • We were able to watch CBS, Fox, NBC and PBS TV stations using Rosie's antenna. We also saw the COMET digital TV signal.
  • This was a pet friendly park.
