Fort Custer Recreation Area: camping

This park has some nice campgrounds (not KOA standards) and rentable cabins. There are plenty of walking and horse-riding paths, some of which are fairly good for birding. There are several lakes and ponds where you can launch small rowboats or canoes. They have rentable paddle boats and canoes if you choose not to bring your own equipment. Most of the campsites have water and electric available. There are modern restroom facilities for each cluster of campsites. Open fires are permitted but only in designated areas.
The tent sites are in among the trees so bring warm night-clothes because it can be cool and damp overnight even in June.

Some of the park areas is dedicated to picnicing with tables and grill-stands and pavillions.
The Eagle Lake section of the park has supervised swimming.
Some areas of the park are open to hunters, so you need to check with the visitors center to know which areas to avoid if you are camping.

When we went, reservations were required. Cost was about $15 per night in the 1980's.
