My family just wrapped up one week at Tawas Pt. SP in NE MI. We first visited this campground on our pup's maiden voyage late last summer, and were determined to come back. It's not a campground for the boondockers, but for families with small children, it's wonderful. The sites are fairly generous in size and mostly all grassy with a good amount of trees. The campground is on a point, so you have Lake Huron on one side, Tawas Bay on the other, and a lighthouse at the end that's a short walk away. There is a stocked fishing pond and a beautiful sugar sand beach, which you don't always find on Lake Huron. East Tawas has a few little shops/restaurants, and a very laid-back feel. And, while I LOVE the west side of our beautiful state, I will say that this part of MI is much less built up, and has more of an old-time vacation town feel. When we arrived, there was an immediate SPUT: DH left our camper keys at home. While the pup was unlocked (thankfully?), the padlock on our hitch was NOT. Add to this, a wound up three-year old who was hungry. Thankfully, the office sent a couple of rangers by with bolt-cutters. Crisis averted. Highlights: We got in a couple of beach days, did a little kite-flying with DD, ate at an excellent pizzeria in town, saw a few shooting stars from the Perseids, took in a sunset over the bay, and on a colder day, we did a scenic tour of the AuSable River and several scenic overlooks/monuments. Oh, and we also met another nice couple with children who gave us a tour of their brand-new *cough* ahem, HTT. Dislikes: The family who let their toddler play unattended in the campground road, on a curve, on the other side of the trailer they were sitting behind. I stopped for him when driving, sat there, and the parents just called for him - no one actually came and picked him up. I know kids bike and play on campground roads all of the time, but a toddler should NOT be out there unattended. A slow-moving vehicle is still a moving vehicle. It really burns me when I see that. I always watch our DD when she's in the road. Our other dislike - the large, extended family of about 15 people, who plopped down their camping chairs on the middle of the beach right behind us (that part was fine), and proceeded to let their kids begin digging huge holes and trenches about 1.5 feet away from our beach blanket. The adults proceeded to start drinking beer, while completely ignoring their children. Lest I sound like an ogre, let me clarify: We were sitting in the middle of the beach. This was not near the shore, where kids always dig holes and build castles in the sand. And, there was plenty of beach on either side of us! But no, their kids started running past us with buckets of water, flinging sand, and digging Right. Next. To. Our. Blanket. I'm sure they didn't know better, but that's why parenting might have come in handy. Annoying people aside, it was an excellent family vacation and I recommend the park to anyone who wants an easy and pleasant SP campground for the family!
