Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
October 22 Love to bring my daughter there.
So I was born and raised in Bay City and I have gone to the State Park dozens of times. I am no longer a resident in Bay City i currently moved out to Vassar. But evertime I come int o Bay City I love to bring my daughter to the State Park to play on the wooden play ground as well as the splash area for the childre. I wish I could take my daughter to the beach and let her swim. I dont ever recall going in the water even when i was a little girl. I think the water should be cleaned up as well as the beach. There should be more activities for people to do maybe like a basketball court, volleyball court, maybe a pavilion out on the beach along with like a building for bathrooms and a concession stand for people who want to buy lunch or a snack. That would bring in great money for the State Park. You should also add a pool or like a mini water park in the open space you guys have near the wooden play area that also would bring in money. I feel like the state park needs some TLC dont get me wrong the park is beautiful but some more things for people to do would be awesome. Even putting like a ice rink outside some where so in the winter time you could rent out ice skates or people could bring there own and enjoy a winter day with some hot chocolate. Or maybe even some horse back riding would be pretty cool as well. We need something a change would be nice. I love our State Park and I believe there could be life brought back.

August 1 A great place to show your love!! by Joanie
My husband and I renewed our 10 wedding vows at the park on Aug 14th 2010. Best day ever!!! all the workers were great and really helpful. We camped at the park that weekend and then had the renewal on a saturday, everything went great. would tell anyone that was thinking about doing something like this to do it.
July 4 Nice camping experience but... by Jackie
The park was real nice,clean,friendly staff, and nice size camp spots. The ONLY downfall was the beach was nasty. the water was black, the beach was slimmy with nasty stuff washing up. there was no way I was letting my kids get in the water. The bike trails were awesome and everyone was friendly. would like to go back, but swimming is 30 minutes away in Midland. A lil camp store would have been nice.
March 3 Great place to park and hike the marsh. by FD
I love to take my dogs ON LEASH and park at the center and hike to the marsh. Nice campground and they are working hard to provide a nice beach for swimming. I suggest if you take your dogs leash them and pick-up after them Leave it nice for others to enjoy.

August 30 Biking on the rail trail
My husband and I love to bike ride in the early evening down the rail trail. It is so peaceful and beautiful. Very impressed how many nice people we meet along the way. Great place to be close to nature and the wildlife.
September 27 RACOONS!!!
We love the Bay City State Park and camp there regularly. The sites are generous and many of them have trees and are up against the woods so it has a real private outdoors feeling. The park employees are available but not nosey or intrusive. The only not-so-good thing the past couple years has been the RACOONS!!! They come out at night and are able to unlatch and get in coolers and also opened our tents even after we tied them shut with metal bread ties - YIKES!!! They are loud and destructive! This may deter our further use of the park.
August 19 this is a great parrk...
we live close by..yet it seems like it is up north in the wilderness
June 30 Great Camp Grounds by amidd67
We visited my sister and her family who were camping last summer at Bay City State Park. The facilities were excellent, clean and modern. The park is very beautiful. We enjoyed biking the trails and sitting around the campfire. We also enjoy visiting the visitor center museum, which had an outdoor scavenger hunt for the kids. We want to camp at Bay City State Park this summer!
