Port Crescent State Park is located at the tip of Michigan's "thumb" along three miles of sandy shoreline of Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay. Some of the modern campsites offer a waterfront view, either of the Bay or the Old Pinnebog River channel. A 900-foot boardwalk and five picnic decks offer scenic vistas from the top of sand dunes in the day-use area.

June 29 Family Tradition! by MKerner
My family has been traveling to this camp ground for the past 16 years, staying the last week in July. This is something both us kids and my parents look forward to all year long. Quality family time, a beautiful beach and clean water, nice bathroom facilities, friendly staff and nice sites. Also a cute down town with shops and restaurants if you dont want to cook for a night. I hope to make this a family tradition with my own family some day, :)
