This park has a very nice beach area that is ALL sand. Nice restroom facilities and easy access to beach.
We always get a pass for this park. Great dunes and swimming with very little rocks. Our last day we knew there would be small waves due to a cold front heading in, so we loaded up for wave jumping fun. Bathrooms are available as well as pavilion picnic area, but no showers ( we have been told that there... More
I loved this beach. The sand is like flour and the water is sparkling cold as you would expect. Only complaint was the upkeep of the parking areas. Weeds growing everywhere and up to the side mirrors of our car. Be prepared to walk uphill thru the really thick soft sand when going back to your car.
The walking/biking loops around the Park and the access paths to the beach were all nicely maintained. The area offered a good day-trip spot to walk around on some nice nature trails and then venture to the beach. The beach was well-kept and clean and had plenty of good swimming. The Park is not particularly notable otherwise, but works very... More
I took my grandson camping at Sleeper State Park about a mile South of Port Crescent during the first weekend in June. We had my Labradoodle dog with us, so we hiked in to the beach just up the road from the day use park near the Port Crescent Campground. The trail head is just before the Buccaneer Restaurant on...

Locals tell me the road (inside state park) that drives you back to day use beach parking area has washed out and DNR is NOT repairing it for this season --- which would make use of the day use beach prohibitive this summer I would recommend calling to check on this before planning a trip there.

My family goes there every summer and stays for a week, sometimes longer. The campground is VERY well maintained, there are full shower facilites, there is a private beach, and there is a playground. I HIGHLY reccommend this campground for both tent camping and RV camping. This is one that you do not want to miss out on.
We didn't stay at the campground, but I can vouch for the beach. This is a very nice, semi-secluded beach, tucked below a grassy bluff. In my opinion, this is one of the best beaches on Lake Huron. It’s also located conveniently close to the VERY cool town of Port Austin (my favorite town in the thumb).
Our spot, 60's, was very nice but fairly small. It was great because it is right off of the beach and had a great view. The campground and staff were fairly nice, the restrooms and showers were clean and large, but the roads are very small. Will do again.
