Brush Creek Campground
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I stayed two nights at Brush Creek over Memorial Day weekend 2014. Looking to be near Lake Michigan without staying at a cramped state park.

We car camped with a tent, plus a medium size dog. Cost $20 per night. Alcohol OK. There were other campers there (a mix of RVs with electric/water hookups) and a couple tent groups. The owners were flexible about where we pitched a tent--frankly, we could've done it anywhere, but we opted for a secluded spot in the woods, out of sight from the other campers, along a bluff above the Brush Creek ravine. It was great! Plenty of shade, abundant fire wood for gathering (the office didn't sell wood; they said pick whatever you want).

There are also a few trails around the campsite that run along and across the creek that make for easy hikes. In our case, we ran and hiked our dog to tire her out, and got her swimming in one of the calmer parts of the creek. Easy.

There is a bathroom/shower building with hot showers. Nothing to write home about--they were just as nice as your average state park bathroom, but when you're camping, you can't be picky.

It looked like a good place for group camping, too, as there was a big family gathering camped out near the front of the campground. It's easy to camp away from those groups--you're by no means stacked on top of each other like at a popular state park. Once the sun set, you could hear the hum of I-94 several miles away, but nothing disruptive. I've heard worse at other state parks in more populated areas.

There's a big open field for ball games, too, if you have lots of kids (which there were in one group there). The potable water faucets had some serious rust in the pipes, which is the only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars.

Gorgeous overall property, easy experience, friendly and flexible owners, and good for tents. Can't speak for RVs, though they looked comfortably set up. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for easy camping in southwest Michigan.

Room Tip: This is a campground, not a hotel.
