“a playground for the sportsman”
The area around Indian Lake State Park is a playground for the sportsman and outdoor recreationist. The Hiawatha National Forest and Lake Superior State Forest offer unlimited opportunities for hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking, snowmobiling, cross- country skiing and berry picking. The Seney National Wildlife Refuge is a favorite with bird watchers and other wildlife lovers. The mouth of the Thompson Creek and the Manistique River are hot spots for salmon and steelhead fishing in season. Thompson State Fish Hatchery is only two miles from the park and is open weekdays for viewing 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Indian Lake State Park is located on Indian Lake, the fourth largest inland lake in the Upper Peninsula with an area of 8,400 acres. It is six miles long and three miles wide. The lake was once called M'O'Nistique Lake. According to 1850 surveyor records, Native Americans lived in log cabins near the outlet of the lake.
Very nice campground. Check in was easy with the Rangers very accomadating. If we didn't like our site, come back and select another!
We camped at this park in Summer of 2013. It was fantastic. Views were awesome. Very friendly staff. Highly recommend. There are sections, a regular area with all amenities (not sure about sewer hookup since we were in a pop-up) and a primitive area. The primitive area was nearly vacant.
