|The campground abuts 30 acre Arrowhead Lake.|
I usually like to stay more than one day before reviewing a campground but I did a lot of hiking on the nature trail that encircles the lake and also looked at a good deal of the park so here goes!
|The trail runs about 2.2 miles around the lake.|
I can't vouch for other times of the year but I was amazed that there were virtually no bugs on my hikes through the woods on the Nature Trail around the lake.

The campsites at Arrowhead Lake were well spaced and quite a few of the sites looked to be occupied by long-term guests. The campground was extremely quiet, especially after dark.
|Knowing I was leaving the next morning I didn't unhitch from the pickup.|
There was one small cabin for rent at the park which would be great for car travelers, I didn't inquire about the nightly cost.
|The rental unit came with front porch chairs.|
Across from the main office where you check in were the bathrooms and showers, I peeked inside and the bathrooms and showers were very clean.
|Spotless on the inside.|
Arrowhead Lake Campground is open year around although it warns that water service is cut-off in months where freezing takes place, Most full-timers I know would be in Florida or Arizona by then but it could be useful as a just passing through stop in winter months.
The staff was very friendly and the park was extremely well-kept. The utter quiet at night earns the park bonus points too, as does the reasonable $18 / night cost! I'll be adding Arrowhead Lake Campground to my list of places to stay on my way to and from Michigan.
Thanks for reading!
