“Quiet out of the way campground.”

Detour State Forest Campground was one of our favorite campgrounds. It is located on a peninsula on Lake Huron. It has multiple beaches with great swimming. The road in is quite narrow, winding it's way through a pine and hemlock forest. As such it is not good for larger RVs. The campground is not heavily used and I have never seen it filled. It is a ways of the road, so there is no road noise. The only thing you hear are the waves lapping against the shore and the wind in the trees.
