Bay City State Recreation Area has one of the largest remaining freshwater, coastal wetlands on the Great Lakes, the Tobico Marsh. More than a thousand feet of sandy beach and over 2,000 acres of wetland woods, wet meadows, cattail marshlands and oak savannah prairies make it an ideal staging area for migratory birds.

One of the main reasons I like this campground is that most of the sites are fairly secluded. One thing I hate is be stacked in a campground like cord wood. Most of these sites have bushes and small trees between the campsites which is not very common for electric sites. I can't say much about the beach on the Saginaw bay it's not the greatest but people do use it . There is a splash pad in the park across form the campground and a nice children's play area. Its close to Bay City where you can find any thing you would want to eat as well as a mall. You got the Saginaw bay for some of the finest walleye and perch fishing anywhere. Also a hiking and bike trails galore.
