The Platte River Campground, located in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, is open year-round and offers a wide variety of camping styles.  The campground consists of 4 drive-in loops with 147 campsites, plus there is a section where you can park and then hike a few yards to a few hundred yards into a primitive tent section. The primitive walk-in section includes 25 sites that have tent pads and fire grates at each site. These sites are not included in the pictures. Some are fairly deep into the forest, and some are fairly close to the parking area and other camp sites in the 400 loop.

Advanced reservations are allowed in about 66% of the sites.  The 400 loop, which is the largest loop, is all reserved camping. The 400 loop is also the area that has the most camp site level differences and is the least friendly for larger RV’s. Most of the sites, even in the 400 loop have double parking pads, even though they may be short. Most of the 400 loop sites require a few steps up or down from the parking pad to get to the tent pad, fire grate and picnic table. The norm in the other three loops are large parking pads with level tent sites.

Platte River Campground has a dump station, flush toilets, hot showers and drinking water. Each campsite has a table, fire ring and grill. Some campsites have electrical hookups.

    I have stayed in the group sites a few times, which we loved. However, we tend to do a lot of cooking and would like an individual site, since carrying everything is wearing on us.
    2 Questions: Can I have a tent for 3 family members and a camper for 3 as well on the same site? Also, can I book more than one site at the same time for another family member?
