“Okay in a pinch”

Overall Rating

We stayed here over 4th of July weekend. One reason was we wanted to see the Cherry Festival in Traverse City and we wanted to go to Mackinaw Island. This campground is one hour from each place and directly in the middle. There is a small town about 20 minutes away from the campground.

The camping fees are $13 a night. The ranger called it a rustic campground. There are vault toilets and old fashion hand water pumps. There's no way to fill your water tank, and there is no dump. Luckily we filled up before we left and we used the generator for power.

The sites are under a canopy of trees and dirt surfaces. There's fire rings in each site. The sites are large and our 36 ft camper abs truck fit easily.

There is a small beach area at the end of the park on Lake Michigan. The sand area is narrow but if you like the beach I'm sure it will work.

Overall it was a quiet camping experience out in the middle of no where (which we like). Just fill up on food and water before you get there.
