    This is my favorite campground. I grew up in ossineke on lake Huron and this place was my home away from home. I plan on coming here every year for the rest of my life. It's a gorgeous place and will forever be part of my childhood.

    My wife and I stopped for our first time and spent a few hours at the beach. What a beautiful spot with crystal clear calm water that you can wade out 300' and be only waist deep.

    The camping area looked like very nice and said it's a place we would return to and camp at some point.

    We have camped here 3 or 4 times. My kids request a trip to Ossineke over all the other private and State Campgrounds we have utilized over the past 6 or 7 years. Great beach areas and lots of privacy.

    Ossineke is a beautiful rustic campground. A quarter of the sites are in view of the bay, and the others are nestled in a lovely wooded setting. Pit toilets only! A great place to spend a few nights! Visit the campy Dinosaur Gardens with the kids, and also a huge playground just off the highway on the way into the campground. Wonderful, quiet, peaceful stay; we went last year on 4trh of July weekend and still found a spot!
