    I have reservations for Platte River Campground at Sleeping Bear Dunes NP first week in October. Does anyone have any advice for me about the campground or surrounding area? We love hiking and being out in nature...

    Thanks!

    Ok all consider this a report. The Platte River Campground is fantastic. They have recently refurbished the entire campground. Sites are huge! Large sand pads with nice tables and fire rings. This is in addition to the paved area for your camper.

    Bathrooms are clean and nice. Showers are nice sized but only 2 total per bathroom building.

    My family wants to return during the summer to canoe and kayak. But the colors of the fall foliage were great too.

    This is a keeper
