It’s not too late to plan a camping trip this summer. Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources debuts a new overnight experience at Sterling State Park in Monroe in August and reservations open soon.


“Michigan’s DNR has installed 10 new, fully equipped cottages along Lake Erie waterfront. Each cottage has a view of the lake from the screened-in front porch and easy access to the park’s day-use area. Amenities include two bedrooms, including one with a queen bed and another with a set of bunk beds (single top, double base) in the second room. There is also a bathroom, kitchen, dining space and common area with a futon. The cottages sleep up to 7. The kitchen is stocked with dishes and cookware, a cooktop, microwave and refrigerator. Relax on the screened-in front porch that overlooks the lake after a day full of water recreation, fishing, or time on the campground trails.


Bedding linens are provided; please bring your own towels. No smoking or pets allowed.”



Reservations open soon for overnight stays after Aug 13, 2020. The sites are $160 per night and require a two-night minimum stay. A portion of the sales goes back to the DNR. Book your stay here.

New cabins debut at state park

Ten waterfront cabins were recently built at Sterling State Park. Reservations are now open.

Sterling State Park’s first-ever cabin lodging opens Friday, just in time for Memorial Day weekend.

Construction began last spring on 10 permanent waterfront cabins. Work has just been completed, said Nick Sparks, lead worker at the park.

“Lodging was not previously offered,” said Sparks. “This is the first of any lodging for Sterling.”

The first reservations are for this weekend. Many weekends this summer are booked, but weekday dates are still open.

Cabin rental is $170 a night, and there is a two-night minimum.

Nine of the cabins sleep seven and have two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed; the other has a full bed with a bunk above. A futon in the living area allows for two more occupants.

One of the cabins is barrier-free and offers a slightly different layout. The barrier-free cabin sleeps six.

All cabins have a full bathroom and a kitchen. Kitchen amenities include a full-sized refrigerator, sink, microwave, coffee pot, induction cooktop, pots, pans, dishes and silverware.

Bed linens are provided, but renters should bring their own towels. A screened-in porch faces Lake Erie. Outside are a fit pit and park grill. Smoking and pets are not allowed.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), which operates Sterling State Park, said interest in overnight lodging has grown, but many are not interested in tent camping. The DNR plans to open more lodging at Michigan state parks next year.

The cabins at Sterling were built in partnership with Recreation Resource Management. RRM also has lodgings at two other Michigan state parks, Pontiac Lake Recreation Area and Port Crescent State Park.

Reservations for lodging can be made a year in advance by visiting or by calling (800) 447-2757.

Sterling State Park offers 1,300 acres and beaches on Lake Erie. Amenities include boating, shoreline fishing, a fishing lagoon, bike riding, lakefront camping, kayaking, wildlife viewing and hiking on seven miles of trails.

“The park is well-known for its walleye fishing, three lagoons and sandy beachfront near the mouth of Sandy Creek,” according to the park’s website.
