Close to home and great beach!! A very reasonable place to camp. There's several grocery stores to shop for dinner and breakfast. Clare, is a short drive for a wide arrangement of resturants.

Went camping here recently with family. Park is nice and clean, though the bathroom/showers were kinda dirty. Downsides are the sites are very close to each other with very little privacy and the noise from traffic from the state highway. Will return soon.

Located directly across the street from the Clare County Fairgrounds, and Located on a 175 acre lake, this is one of the nicest, cleanest state parks I have ever stay at. Beautiful beach and great fishing.

Wilson State Park is fantastic! A beautiful beach, spotless bathrooms, great play areas for children and restaurants within walking distance! 20 lakes in 20 minutes in the area! Plenty to do and see in Harrison, Michigan.

Great campground. Small beach. Loved the wooded sites, the traffic is the only downfall. It's all we heard all night and we were the furthest from the road. Otherwise I would go again, but take a fan to block out the noise.

None of the sites are actually level, so you are fighting with trying to get your trailer level. Site are very close together, and lots of road noise even if you are away from the main drag. We had to use the self check in...More
