Camping at Hoeft State Park and enjoying all the activities the park offers is a wonderful way to leave the stresses of daily life behind. Hiking through some of the seven miles of trails that wind through the park is a great way to relax. New hikers will enjoy a stroll along the shore of Lake Huron, while more experienced hikers may find the rolling hills and forest trails more to their liking.
Many visitors to Hoeft State Park bring along their bicycles and ride along the trails. When biking, be vigilant of any pedestrians on the trails and practice bike safety. The paved trail is a great place to begin your adventure. This trail begins at the day-use area and connects to the Huron Sunrise Trail at the entrance to the park. The Huron Sunrise Trail will lead you along the shore of Lake Huron into Rogers City and ends at the Calcite Limestone Quarry. This is one of the largest open-pit limestone mines in the world. The Huron Sunrise Trail also connects to the Herman Vogler Conservation Area and seven more miles of biking trails to explore.
Hoeft State Park is a great winter destination for motorhome camping. You can bring along your skis and do a little cross-country skiing while visiting. There are about four and a half miles of trails that are gently rolling and perfect for trying your hand at skiing. Trails are not well-groomed. Skiers should practice caution while skiing to prevent injuries or accidents from occurring. Contact the park office to determine the best time to visit and go cross-country skiing.
Many Hoeft State Park campers come here to savor the quiet beauty around them. The park's Modern Campground offers more than 125 sites within walking distance of the restrooms and showers. Full RV hookups are also available here, but you'll want to reserve one of these spots early. Most campsites feature beautiful views of Lake Huron, and a beach where campers can lounge or swim is only a short distance from the campground. This is a private beach reserved for campers and their guests.
Should you find that you're unable to reserve a spot at the Hoeft State Park RV campgrounds, check out Camper’s Cove RV Park and Canoe Livery in Alpena.

While visiting Michigan, you'll want to take a few road trips in your RV rental. Your first stop should be the 40-Mile Point Lighthouse in Presque Isle County near Hammond Bay in Rogers Township. This lighthouse is unique in that it's not the landmark for a significant harbor or river. The lighthouse is part of the Legacy of Parks program and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The park where the 40-Mile Lighthouse is located is open year-round, and the grounds have been fully restored to include a nautical museum detailing the history of the lighthouses along the Great Lakes.
Staying along the same nautical adventure as the 40-Mile Lighthouse, you'll want to stop in and visit the Great Lakes Lore Maritime Museum in Rogers City. The museum pays special tribute to the lives of marine personnel who have dedicated their lives to serving the Great Lakes region. This includes the Native Americans, the first travelers along the Great Lakes, and European traders. The Coast Guard Lighthouse Keepers along with the Life Saving Station employees are also honored and their stories carefully recorded for visitors to the museum to learn through their words what life was like working on the Great Lakes.
Travel south to the Hofma Preserve in Grand Haven. This preserve is a great way to experience nature while walking along some of the four and a half miles of trails. There's even an 885-foot floating bridge to walk across and snap some spectacular photos of the preserve. Bring a picnic and your four-legged companion for a day of relaxation; just remember to keep your dog leashed while in the preserve.
