Platte River Campground in the Sleeping Bear Dunes Lakeshore

Platte River Campground is open year-round and offers a wide variety of camping styles. You can find back-in and pull-through sites for RV’s, including electrical hookups; but it also offers beautiful tent sites, walk-in sites for the slightly more adventurous, and group sites (hike-in, tents only) accommodating up to 25 people. There is even a nearby backcountry campground for those who enjoy a great backpacking experience, but don’t have the time to head for the Manitou Islands.

Platte River Campground consists of 179 sites. Portable water and a sanitation station are available near the entrance. Water is located throughout the campground, also there are flush toilets, camp sinks and shower facilities located at the restrooms.
