A wooded park situated on the shore of a lake, the Lake Gogebec State Park covers 360 acres and almost a mile of lake frontage on the west coast of the biggest inland lake in the Upper Peninsula. There are thirty campsites located directly on the lakefront. The other campsites are nestled among the trees, less than a hundred yards from the lake.
At the Lake Gogebec State Park, dogs of different sizes are welcome in the campgrounds, picnic areas, and trails at no additional fee, but they are not allowed in the swimming areas and inside the buildings. Dogs cannot be left alone at any time, and they must be current in their rabies shots.
Pet parents can also bring their furbabies in the dog walk area at the Lake Gogebec State Park campground. Pet parents must remember to clean up after their pooches. The campground has one hundred twenty-seven sites, a quarter of which is on the shoreline. There are two toilet and shower buildings, and three pull-through sites.
There is a public phone, a gift shop, ice and wood available at the Lake Gogebec State Park campground store. The day use area has bathrooms, a picnic shelter, boat launch, playground equipment, and a swimming beach. Helpful staff and hosts are always on the Lake Gogebec State Park campground to lend a hand to people who need help.
If you do not fancy being away from the modern conveniences of the urban setting, you will be delighted to know that the Lake Gogebec State Park is centrally located to various attractions and just about thirty minutes away from the Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park.
Campers are prohibited from camping for more than fifteen consecutive nights. Reservations for the campsites can be made up to six months in advance of the planned arrival date while reservations for day-use shelters or overnight lodging can be made up to a year in advance. A stay in the Lake Gogebec State Park is a welcome change for people who would like to take some rest.
