Has anyone camped here?
Whats your opinion? Would you go back? Give me the good, the bad and the ugly.
It was pretty nice. The campground is across the street from Lake Huron (Saginaw Bay). It has a lot of mature trees and its not hard to find shade. Its an older park, so there is a fair amount of odd campsites. Not too far to get to restaurants and things like that. Last summer was our first time there. I'd go back. It has some hiking areas nearby that are interesting. its not spectacular, but its nice enough enjoy and have a nice time. Wifi near the office and across at some beach/recreation areas.
Bathrooms were newer, but not particularly clean when we were there. That can change day by day, and season by season depending on who is working there. With the number of monster rigs in the campgrounds these days, there is less competition for the showers and bathrooms since so many people are using their own bathrooms now.
We have also camped there and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the campground was. I expected a very crowded 'city park' but it is pretty and well kept, with the exceptions of what michigan_camper said. Bay City itself is a pretty cool town to visit. Walk-able downtown with lots of neat shops. There is a Vietnam era navy destroyer, The U.S.S Edson, that is open for tours. And a couple of (range light) lighthouses! This park is on our visit-every-couple-of-years list. (cuz there are so many great places to visit in our great state!)
A neat time to camp there would be when the tall ships come through.

We live in Bay City, and have made it a yearly trip to stay there for our first trip each year, in case anything goes horribly wrong. It has decent spots, the facilities are newer (bathrooms, etc) and mostly kept clean. The only issue I would mention is that some of the spots at the end farthest from the entrance can be real muddy with some rain. There is a nice playground across the street, along with a pretty new spray pad for the kids. And right next door is possibly the best ice cream place in the state, Mussell Beach (they don't take check or credit card, so bring some cash).
