Port Crescent State Park: Michigan USA

Port Crescent State Park is located In Huron County, Michigan near the tip of “Michigan’s thumb.”  It is surrounded by Lake Huron and Saginaw Bay.

With electrical hook-up, many modern campsites offer a waterfront view, either of the Bay or the Old Pinnebog River channel.

Other campsites boast more secluded private campsites.

The park has two cabins which are available for rent.  One larger cabin overlooks the beach and sleeps six.  The one pictured below is located near the park entrance.

Site 108 is located near an electrical box which hummed loudly.  We overheard several campers make complaints.

This bathroom is new and quite beautiful.  The bathroom near our site is in desperate need of updating.  Several of the facets were broken and the facilities looked dirty.

One large playground provides children with loads of fun.  Other activities for kids include crafts and snacks (at the host site), fishing, biking, and hiking.  You can take a ride to Port Crescent’s Day Park to access a wheelchair accessible trail and more miles of beach.

Don’t forget to bring along a basketball.

Port Crescent’s beach is a gem  It featuring three miles of sandy beach and two rivers which connect. The river in this picture is small.  However the second river is large and great for canoeing, tubing, swimming, and fishing.

I love beach boardwalks.  They make dragging tons of children’s beach toys and accessories a little easier.
