Primitive sites on Lake Michigan

This is a primitive state forest campground right on the shore of Lake Michigan that is larger than most in Michigan. The sites vary in size and shape, but many could accommodate everything from a tent to a small trailer, Class B or truck camper.

It's first-come, first-served so you may end up with an inner site that isn't on the water. But even with 50 sites, it's not a long walk to get to a lake access point.

Keep in mind that when it rains, this place tends to get quite muddy and the sites are mostly grass and dirt. Some sites were a bit unlevel but most seemed pretty good.

There is some road noise if you're in a site closer to the front. But if you're near the lake you won't hear the cars and trucks.

Cell service was low on a Verizon phone (1 bar LTE) but a bit better with our Verizon MiFi (2 bars LTE). Google Fi phone had spotty LTE service that came and went depending on location in the campsite.

  • Site 24
  • Not much beach right now due to high water levels.
