Geodesic Dome Cabins at Port Crescent

Enjoy a glamping experience in a Geodesic cabin at Port Crescent State Park along Lake Huron in Michigan.

GeoDome Cabin at Port Crescent State Park

Last summer we had an awesome camping trip around the lower peninsula of Michigan. We spent one week along Lake Michigan and another leak along Lake Huron. One of the highlights was checking out one of the new Geodesic Cabins at Port Crescent State Park.

Port Crescent Geodesic Cabin

Michigan DNR opened two Geodesic Dome Cabins in the park in May of 2021. These domes are energy efficient.

Special notes

  • The domes do not have their own bathroom, but campers can use the campground bathhouse.
  • They do not have running water, but there is a water spigot nearby.
  • No linens are provided, so bring sheets, blankets, pillows, and towels.
  • No smoking or pets are allowed in the domes.

Michigan Glamping Experience

A dome requires a 2-night minimum stay and can be reserved through the Michigan DNR website. These geodesic domes are popular, so book early!

If you are unable to secure a reservation for a GeoDome, Port Crescent State Park also has seven cabins and one cottage available for glamping.
