This snake was struggling in the heavy surf of Lake Michigan

Fisherman's Island State Park is not actually an island, but a 2,678-acre park with five miles of unspoiled Lake Michigan shoreline. The park encompasses a tiny island, Fisherman's Island, located a short distance offshore from the picnic area. Located just south of Charlevoix, it features a rustic campground with some of the sites nestled in the dunes along the lakeshore. The park road travels through the campground to the picnic area with access to the beach and miles of hiking trails. The interior terrain consists of rolling dunes covered with maple, birch and aspen broken up by bogs of cedar and black spruce.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 30 awesome place
Wonderful place to camp if you are seeking quiet and tranquility. The campsites were large and not crammed together like so many DNR properties. There is plenty of wildlife to see. The best thing was the unspoiled beauty of Lake Michigan. I recommend this to anybody wanting to get away from the rat-race.
July 6 Great Place to Camp by Alex
Some campsites backed up to the water and were very nice. The other sites, however, were a short walk from the water and somewhat secluded. The beach was nice but not very big. View was great.
