Welcome to Houghton Lake Travel Park!!

(989) 422-3931 


Houghton Lake Travel Park Campground is a quiet, friendly, family-oriented camping park. 

   Come up and see us in the “North Country!”

We have clean newly-renovated bathrooms, hot showers, laundry, playground for kids (including barefoot sand volleyball court), shuffleboard courts, store, coffee shop, hand-dipped Hudsonville Ice Cream, and game room.  The swimming pool is pristine and kept heated at 83 degrees.  Ice and firewood are also available.


Fall “Stuff”

-The pool is now closed.  But… the Ice Cream Shop is open!  You can still order firewood as usual at the store, delivered to your site.  🙂

-All campsites are $5.00 off regular price in September. 

-All campsites are $25.00 in October.

-Water to the sites will be turned off on October 2.

-The entire park will be closed on October 16.

-Very much looking forward to next year.  We are currently taking many reservations for 2024.  Call for yours!


Reservation Guidelines

-All reservations are taken over the phone or in person. 

          Please call 989-422-3931.

-You may make reservations up to one year before your camping date.  (For example, if you wish to make a reservation for June 1-7 of 2024, you may call or make the reservation in person anytime starting June 1 of 2023, 8:00 AM, but not sooner.)  All people will be treated equally and fairly, with no one being given preferential treatment.  Reservations are strictly “first come-first served.”

-For campers wishing to make longer term reservations, you may only reserve two of the three main summer months… June, July, August.  This restriction does not apply to or include April, May, September, or October.


“We consider it our mission to promote family activities, to encourage families to do things together, to build strong and healthy families.”   

We are also committed to honoring God and his Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ, in every aspect of our work.   

Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.  It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”  (NIV)

To this end, we have worship services in the pavilion every Sunday morning all summer, occasional hymn-sings, and strive to be people of faith and have servant hearts in our daily work.


We want the park to be a safe and inviting place for all, from small children to older adults.  We will not tolerate rowdy behavior, drunkenness, or loud music in the park. 

Features of our park include:  large sites, all pull through, water, electric, sewer, wireless internet at sites, cabins, a primitive tenting area, a sparkling clean heated pool, playground, store, and coffee shop with goodies and ice cream!  All of this is just down the road from Houghton Lake, the largest inland lake in Michigan.  

On weekend evenings, kids (and those who are kids at heart!) can ride the train and get popcorn afterwards.

If you are looking for a warm and friendly family park,

you have found it!  Please join us  🙂

We all need to be fully aware of the contagiousness of COVID right now, and must be willing abide by reasonable precautions during the camping season.  Thank you.

   The last three years, we were able to successfully work through any problems by social distancing, limiting the number of people at one time in the bathrooms and pool, wearing masks when necessary, etc.

I am sure that this year we will again be able to spend quality time together camping!!


Come on up to the campground!  You’ll have a great time!
