“Campground in Benzie County, Michigan”

Platte River Campground is located in the southern district of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, on the lower peninsula of Michigan. This year-round facility is one of the most popular campgrounds in the park. It is within walking distance of the Platte River and a short walk or drive away from the Lake Michigan shore. Hikers can access many of the area's day use and backpacking trails just north of the campground.  Summer temperatures range from the upper 70s to 90s during the day and 50s to 70s at night. Winters are cold, with daytime highs in the 20s to 30s and lows in the 10s and 20s; snow is usually on the ground from late November through March.

Loved this campground. Stayed in a walk-in tent site. Walk was relatively flat and easy and not far. Sites were well spaced out and facilities were great. Wish we had better cell reception but it was a very nice, off the grid type experience.

Nice facilities. The walk-in primitive tent sites were well spaced out and offered a very relaxing, tranquil experience.

Stayed in the group site. Was awesome, away from other people. Clean bathrooms and shower. Flat areas for your tents. We will be coming back next summer.

The Platte River Campground, located in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, 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, Pictured Rocks' Lakeshore Trail, or the Appalachians.
