Discover Port Crescent State Park

Set on the banks of Lake Huron, Port Crescent State Park promises sandy beaches, crystalline water, and twinkling stars. The public recreation area occupies 640 acres and stretches for three miles along postcard-perfect Saginaw Bay. When you're not relaxing on the beach or paddling on the lake, spend your time exploring the Thumb of Michigan.

With so many activities and attractions to discover, why not book an RV in Huron County and get to know this pocket of the Great Lake State? Start your adventure with an RV rental in Saginaw, or use cities like Flint or Lansing as a jumping point for camping at Port Crescent State Park. You're also a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Motor City, which makes Port Crescent State Park a great place to escape the urban scene and camp in an RV near Detroit.

Getting Outdoors

Sandy beaches are a major draw at Port Crescent State Park, with most sunseekers making a beeline for the day-use area. Spend the day basking on the golden sand and cooling off in the lake. A wooden boardwalk hugs the shoreline and is a fantastic way to take in the views of Saginaw Bay and Lake Huron. Alternatively, rent a canoe and enjoy a scenic paddle. Anglers can cast a line from the banks of the Pinnebog River, with the chance to reel in largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish.

The Port Crescent-Day Use Trail stretches for more than two miles through the forest and along the sand dunes. Watch for local wildlife such as white-tail deer, coyotes, and songbirds. At under one mile in length, the Port Crescent-Dunes Nature Trail is a great way to explore the unique Lake Huron ecosystem. Things don't slow down in the winter, when Port Crescent State Park transforms into a snow-dusted wonderland for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

As a designated dark sky preserve, Port Crescent State Park boasts some of the best stargazing opportunities in North America. The park is protected from light pollution, which means you can enjoy mesmerizing views of the Milky Way and, if you're lucky, the Northern Lights. When the sun sets, head to the viewing platform near the day use parking lot or enjoy a private stargazing session from your RV rental campsite.

Camping at Port Crescent State Park

Camping with an RV at Port Crescent State Park offers a unique chance to sleep under a blanket of stars. Choose from more than 140 sites, some set on the waterfront with stunning views of Saginaw Bay and the Old Pinnebog River channel. Shoreline sites are perfect for sinking into a camp chair with a good book or sipping a glass of wine. You'll also be just steps from the beach. While most sites are suited to smaller RVs, some can accommodate rigs up to 50 feet long.

The modern campground is well-developed with 20 and 30-amp electric hookups and a dump station. Select sites come with full hookups. You'll also enjoy access to a pair of clean bathroom blocks with flush toilets and hot showers. Port Crescent is pet-friendly, so why not bring along Fido on your next motorhome camping getaway? Just be sure to keep your dog on a six-foot-long leash, and stay away from the designated swim areas marked by buoys.
