Camp Seven Lake Campground neighbors the 60-acre Camp Seven Lake, which offers visitors a place to swim, boat and fish. The excellent location, beautiful setting and many available activities make the campground a perfect place to spend a day, the weekend or longer vacation.
Boating is popular among visitors to the Camp Seven Lake area, and anglers looking to find that perfect spot on the lake. Smallmouth bass, bluegills and perch make up the most popular catches.
The 2-mile Van Winkle Lake loop trail leads hikers to a spectacular paper birch stand overlooking quiet Van Winkle Lake. A variety of waterfowl and wetland wildlife can be spotted along the trail. For a more relaxing stroll, the beach at Camp Seven Lake boasts a paved walking trail.
The campground offers multiple accessible single-family campsites, available for tent and RV camping. For the most part, each site is shaded and private and some are right on the lake. A few sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings; only a few have grills. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. A group picnic area can accommodate up to 25 people and offers tables, a campfire circle and a grill.
The campground is adjacent to Camp Seven Lake, which is situated in the lower third of the Hiawatha National Forest, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The area is home to many bodies of water and plentiful mixed hardwood forests.
The town of Garden Corners is about 20 miles from the campground, on the shores of Lake Michigan.

We stayed here for almost a week and were able to explore all the waterfalls in the area and the UP in general. P.S. it is really close to Kitch-Iti-Kipi! Go see these phenomenon; it is special. This campground has everything you need and is a good central location if you want to set it as your base.
This is a fabulous campground! There are over 20 sites, about half of which are located lake side (not directly on the lake, but there are little paths that lead you there and you can somewhat see the water from these sites.) There is a boat launch on one end of campground and the amazing beach on the other. The water is clear and warm (perfect lake for swimming) and there is both sand and grassy areas on the fairly large beach. The beach also offers picnic tables and benches. The only negative aspect I can see about this campground is that the sites are right on top of each other, so if you have a loud group or a generator next to you, it is noisy. But most campgrounds have sites set real close together, so you will find this pretty much everywhere. Def camp here! About an hours drive from a Pictured Rocks National Park. There are no showers or running water. Camp hosts were very nice, helpful, & welcoming.
