Craven Park Campground
is a great place to stay. The park has many fully functioning sites with electric and water. For the more rustic campers, primitive sites are available. There is a beautiful view of Craven Pond with plenty of fishing opportunities. The quiet park has a nearby walking loop, the Cedar River Natural Area Trails System, that winds through the woods.

campgroundCraven Park is conveniently located just a mile east of downtown Bellaire, which has great dining and shopping opportunities. Richardi Park, with a swimming beach, basketball, and tennis courts, is just a short walk away from downtown. Not far away is Glacial Hill Pathway and Natural Area, with a large trail network suitable for both hiking and mountain biking. Also within easy driving distance is the Grass River Natural Area.

Self-Registration: The campground is now operating by self-registration. Camping is first come-first craven_fallserve. You'll find instructions for self-registration posted on the bath house. Although no campground caretaker will be on the premises, either Department of Public Works employees or Police Department officers will be making daily rounds.
