Brevoort Lake Campground stretches along the western shore of its namesake in the Hiawatha National Forest. This popular fishing destination is situated on a peninsula that juts into the lake and Beodne Bay. Visitors to the campground enjoy the easy access to the pristine sandy beaches.
The 4,233-acre Brevoort Lake provides ample opportunities for recreation. Boat access is available from the center of the campground on Boedne Bay.
In 1985, the Forest Service completed the construction of a walleye spawning reef in Brevoort Lake, providing plentiful fishing in the area. Anglers can also expect healthy populations of pike, bass, perch and a variety of other fish.
Hiking is also a popular pastime of visitors to the campground. The Ridge, Sand Dunes Cross Country and North Country National Scenic trails pass near the campground.
A 10-minute ferry ride to Mackinac Island makes for an interesting day trip. The 3.8-acre island offers hiking, biking, horseback riding and shopping, as well as access to historical sites and museums, among other activities.
The campground offers dozens of reservable single-family campsites for tent and RV camping. Additional sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills, and accessible flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are provided.
Campsites are somewhat secluded, surrounded by huge pine, hemlock and oak trees and low, shrubby vegetation. Beach grass grows along the lake shore, sometimes buried in light sand.
St. Ignace, Michigan, about 20 miles east of the campground, offers historical and tourist attractions as well as grocery and gas services.

Despite the fact that there are not electric sites, this remains one of our favorite stops. There are water and clean bathrooms. No showers. The lake is beautiful, good for swimming and fishing. The town of Escanaba is nearby with good restaurants and Lake walks. Be sure to take yard guard, some mosquitos and black flies. Nice visitor center at Hiawatha National Forest entry. Hiking trails.
Great location, clean bathroom, nice hosts
This campground was one of my favorites. The site was a little less secluded than I would prefer - there were other families and individuals around but everyone was perfectly friendly and we had everything we needed - including a fire pit and water pump
This campground is pretty rustic and secluded from other people. If what you're looking for is privacy, you get it here! The sites are very private and very wooded. I would recommend this campground and would come back.
