We want to visit Michigan this summer and looking at the state parks information it shows electrical service but nothing as sewer or water. How many of the Michigan State parks have full hookup? Do the State parks fill up during the summer month's? We normally do not travel on a schedule but like to stay in State Parks when available. Thanks for your comment.
The only Michigan State Park I have stayed at with FHU's is Sterling State Park on Lake Erie.
I actually stay there for a couple of days before we head to Florida in order to clean up our trailer, since I can't fit our rig in the driveway.
Sterling is a very nice, very large park. There is even good walleye fishing off shore early in the season before the fish move further out into the lake.
There probably are a few additional Michigan State CG's with FHU's that others know of. But if you look in the Michigan website they define their most modern facilities as: Provides modern restroom/shower building, pressurized water spigots and a sanitation station. Each campsite has electrical service available.
Semi-modern and rustic campgrounds have even less.
That kind of tells you FHU's are rare since they do not even have a separate category for FHU.
Only a few MI State Parks have full hook up. Most have electric only with a few places to fill your water. Electric at some sites can be old boxes and bad. A lot of the water is well and can be pretty hard. Most parks are very nice and it's best to make reservation for weekend camping since the popular ones do fill up.
We camp at Michigan state parks almost exclusively. Which area are you looking for? I can also tell you that South Higgins Lake State Park has a handful of sites with full hookups. They just re-did a portion of the park this past year.
I can also tell you that many do fill up, but if you have some flexibility, you can certainly find a reservation on most any weekend (except around major holidays, of course). It's not unusual for us to decide on a Thursday night that we can go camping on Friday night and still find a site.
Hope you have a good trip. Do let us know if you want info about any specific areas.

We did the Lake Michigan side two summers ago and enjoyed the trip. As stated earlier, most parks do not have water at the sites, Holland beach section being the exception. We loved Traverse City and stayed at the state park. This park was the worst of the trip, not clean, sites not level and a staff which should take a course in customer relations. Oh yes, we were booked in to a site which we couldn't get in. Went back to office and was given a new site but was charged $6 for the change.
Holland has 2 sections and the full hook up is only on the beach section. Almost all west Michigan lake shore State owned campgrounds will be full all summer but may have a few empty sites during the week. Before Memorial Day and after Labor Day sites would be open without reservations. Randu
