Peaceful spot, plenty of room

Seems much larger than most state forest campgrounds in Michigan. There are 6 loops here with numerous sites on each loop. And yet, you don't feel crowded in and there's decent privacy in many of the sites. Jones Lake is peaceful and offers some great sunsets. Dirt road leading in is in decent shape and navigable by any size rig. Some of the sites may require some tight maneuvering for larger rigs but site size is good overall. Trees offer good shade cover at different times of the day depending on site location.

Rustic campground, so no water or electric are available, but there are vault toilets, as well as trash and recycling receptacles.

Each site has a picnic table and fire ring.

We had a very pleasant stay.

Deecnt cell coverage -- 2 bars LTE on Verizon, 2-3 bars LTE on Google Fi.
