Traverse City State Park

traversecitystateparkTraverse City State Park is located on the south shore of beautiful Grand Traverse East Bay. There are over 1300 feet of white sand beach with excellent swimming and more than 340 total campsites. The park has more than 47 acres for your convenience and pleasure.

Modern restrooms and shower facilities are within the camping area, along with a sanitary sewer disposal site.  For your enjoyment, you will find playground equipment and a pet walk area. A manager is on the grounds during the summer months.

The pros of this Michigan State Park are the same as the cons. First you are close to everything Traverse City has to offer, shopping, sites and restaurants. You can walk to several of them as the State Park is right on US 31 North. In fact, it separates the waterfront from the camping sites. The road can be very busy at times, although there is an pedestrian overpass to get to the beach. The bad part is just the business of the area, the noise of the road traffic as well as the nearby airport can be distracting. As with all Michigan State parks, a fee is charged.  Reservations available, Contact Michigan State park Reservations at 1-800-44PARKS.
