  • I only wish I lived closer. We traveled all the way from NY to visit this campground and it has still been my favorite to date. We stayed in the loop with the full hook-ups and had a beach view. Every night we had a beautiful sunset to watch. When the water was still, it was crystal clear and beautiful. It reminded me of some place tropical. The kids enjoyed playing on the sandy beaches. While we were here, we also visited Mackinac Island. We rented some bikes and toured the island. Visited many attractions including a winery, ate some famous fudge and climbed up to an overlook of the lake. We had so much fun here and I hope to one day visit it again.
  • We are coming back here every year and when we have guests we try to take them here as one point on the list of Top 🔝 5 of Michigan. Go to the end as far as you can go - from the totally wild beach (stoney) you can see Mackinac Bridge on the horizon. Also go past the Pines Campground for some amazing hiking trails. Easy but so relaxing 😌.
