We arrived late after finding several other campgrounds already full. To our surprise we still found a spot right on the lake with great access. The campground was super quiet despite being about 3/4 full.
Have stayed here now 2 years in a row and loved it both times. We've been lucky enough to stay at a site with great water access both years and the way the geography works out, it seems like the majority of these sites are either on the water or right across from it. Being that it is in the forest, there is plenty of privacy with a lot of tree cover from site to site if you need it. It's a solid no frills campground that I will definitely continue to visit.
Our first night in the UP, we drove around for what felt like FOREVER trying to find a camping spot. We ended up staying on a small patch of grass between a hotel and a campsite for $10. We got out bright and early the next day to find a spot and lucked upon a great site on Kingston Lake. It's fairly small and private, with gorgeous views of the small inland lake right from your tent. When we wanted to go fishing, we could easily drag the kayak down to the water no matter what part of the day. We stayed there for the rest of the week. Great rustic campground with water pumps and outhouse style bathrooms. We only paid $13 a night!
