“Wonderful backpacking campsite next to lake”

The Bowman Lake Campground is located inside the Manistee National Forest, off of West 56th Street via Forest Road 6903. From the parking lot, it's a roughly 1/2 mile hike down to the campground. The four sites are located next to Bowman Lake and connected to the North Country Trail.

Each of the sites were easily reached and offered some amount of privacy and even lake access. We saw several sites which were taken by early afternoon and ran into some very friendly campers who were tubing on the lake.

Would recommend this campground for backpackers and those who pack light. This is a USFS campground and thus has no fees.

Only four spots and you have to hike in but its beautiful and off the track. Nice view of the lake and decent fishing, however there's no water or toilets. I would definitely would come back here again. we were here in August and the bugs were not bad and there is little to no cell service at the site.
