Aloha State Park RV & Campground Guide

Michigan

Set on the shores of Mullett Lake on the northern end of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, Aloha State Park attracts hikers, bikers, boaters, and campers. All the campsites are a few yards from the boat launch, where you can leave your vessel under the care of the staff. While at the park, enjoy swimming in one of the two sandy-bottom beaches, play volleyball or basketball, detect metals, or ride a horse. The weather in Cheboygan County is sunny between May and September. After that, the cold kicks in, making the park ideal for lovers of snow activities. Outside the park, you can enjoy city life in Cheboygan and the surrounding cities and towns such as Manning, Alverno, and Afton.
