First Time visiting this gem. In 37 years of searching I finally found a petoskey stone on their beach. The camp grounds are rustic and inviting. Quiet and peaceful place to vacation or take a day trip

Lots of rocks. Searched for some petoskey and charlevoix stones. Not too sure I found any but still had a nice time walking along the shore and seeing crawfish that came in with the waves

I don't think there is one at the park. There is one at the Emmet county fairgrounds, then another just north of Charlevoix (according to google) at Uhricks, then another at Charlevoix Campground a little east of the park... More
