Oakland County Parks and Recreation’s campgrounds are nearing the end of their season but now is the time for campers to make plans for next year as reservations can be made 11 months in advance.
Reservations are now open for summer 2018 including the major holiday weekends – Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day. In addition to campsites, Oakland County Parks’ two campgrounds, Addison Oaks near Oxford and Groveland Oaks in Holly, have four, four-person cabins each. Both also offer six-person cabins and yurts featuring two bunks and a queen bed. Pavilions are also available for rental.
There’s always plenty to do at OCPR campgrounds including foot and hand-pedal boat rentals and sand volleyball courts. Entertainment includes music, arts and crafts, games and contests. Campers also receive visits from the Oakland County Parks dunk tank, climbing wall and other mobile recreation units.
Addison Oaks is a 1,140-acre park with a “North woods” atmosphere, featuring two lakes, bicycle, kayak and canoe rentals, disc golf course, more than 20 miles of trail including a 2.5 mile paved loop, an inflatable waterslide and more. Groveland Oaks is a family camping park featuring a swimming beach with spiraling waterslide, large playscape, 18-hole mini golf course, skateboard park, paved hiking trails, specialty bike rental, bike skills course, arcade and big screen movies.
