This was our second time at Indian Lake State Park. The campsite was level and nice. We were not on lake access. We used the campground as our base and took a day trip to Marquette. Our Verizon cell service with internet was great.

My only wish is that this state park would get a facelift for the bathrooms/showers like some of the other Michigan State parks have gotten recently.

Would be OK for a kayak, but one of the worst lakes to take a boat on, luckily, I only damaged my prop had to replace it, but didn’t do any severe damage, had a topographical, but didn’t see the depth. Luckily, I was going slow I will never take my boat on this lake again.

The park was OK. Campsite had a nice view of the lake, but way too close together with no foliage for privacy between sites. If we come back to the area, I would stay at the Manistique Lakeshore Campground. The views are equally as pretty, and the sites are much better designed for some privacy, not stacked on top of each other like cordwood.

Beautiful Lake. Nice campground. Nice amenities. Fills up fast. Camp host was very friendly and offered morning coffee and donuts. Bathrooms and showers were very clean and well cared for. Nice setting for a campground with a beautiful view of the Lake. Only a short drive to Lake Michigan. Fills up fast so get your reservations in early. October is a beautiful time to visit this area.

Nice clean campground on the shores of Indian Lake! Gorgeous sunsets and a nice little beach with picnic facilities! Shower and bathrooms were clean and our site was wooded with a view of the lake! Nice place to unwind with a hammock and enjoy the lake.

We camped at site 51 near the bathroom with our daughter's family in site 52. The sites were grassy and level with close access to the lake. The bathroom was clean. The park is close to town and attractions. We visited the Bishop Baraga Shrine which is on the northeast side of the lake. The kids enjoyed swimming. There are also some great sunsets to view across the lake. The park could use an updated playground. WiFi would also be a nice addition. There are some nice horseshoe pits and a great picnic shelter. There are also some excellent sites with lake views.

One of our families favorite state parks. 3 kids twin 14 y/o boys and 11 y/o daughter. Good fishing lake with decent action. Water is fairly clean just dark. Swimmers should be aware it's always had a swimmers itch issue. We always hit the showers after swimming. Sites for most part are spacious and level. Very busy campground and I mean campers don't stay long almost like a stop over for a night along to another destination.

Beautiful view of lake. Site was sand but level. Due to water issue that were communicated ahead of time, I can't rate the shower and restroom facilities.
