Apparently there are a few ways to camp at this park. I am a beginning outdoors woman, so therefore I will explain the whole deal. They don't have a back country, so that isn't an option. But they offer Mini-Cabins, Semi-Modern, Modern Regular, and Modern Premium.
Mini-Cabins > 12x12 cabin with electricity and heat & sleeps 4 people $45 per night
Semi-Modern > 36 primitive sites (I thought we were camping here at first, this is seriously like a small spot is cut from the brush and you are suppose to get in there and put up your tent.) $16.00 per night
Modern Regular > These are normal campgrounds, a place is cleared for each area. You are provided with a pit of sorts to have your fire. They don't allow fires on the ground so you must use this pit. Also there is an electrical outlet at each spot. $25.00 per night with 2 day minmum stay
Modern Premium > This is the same as above, but just more expensive for RVs. $27.00 per night
In the modern area there are 2 loops for these 182 camp sites and only 2 bathrooms with showers. In the brochure they say "state of the art", no that isn't true. Maybe my idea of state-of-the-art is different than theirs. But it is clean and decent.
Camping is April 1 - October 31st
Reservations > 1800-44Parks ($8.00 reservation fee included)
Park pass > required by everyone (info for out of state) $8.00 car $15.00 RV (michigan resident) $6.00 car $15.00 RV
I admit i enjoy an alcohol beverage, but this park prohibits alcohol! I am happy about this, it is actually quieter. Also pets are allowed. There are many there, so your pets will make friends! The park has a 15 day policy, where guest may not stay more than 15 consecutive nights. And the quiet hours are 11pm-8am.
I also enjoyed how very friendly people were here!
For a modest fee, the modern campground at Warren Dunes State Park adequately addresses the needs of campers. The campsites provide ample room and a fire pit. The bathrooms are clean and include flush toilets and showers. Additionally, the campground is only a short walk from the dunes and the beach. One should beware, however, that the wooded area between the campground and the dunes is home to numerous mosquitos, so appropriate measures should be taken to lessen the impact of these unpleasant instects.
