This campground is perfect for campers of most experience and age levels. If you are looking for rugged, wilderness / secluded camping its probably not your place but for everyone else it's a hidden gem.
Nice spots both on the river show and across the road. Easy water access for very little children and non-motorized boats / Kayaks, etc. Nicely equipped playground and evening activities at the Camp Store/Office on special weekends.
This campground has the cleanest restroom/shower facilities of any campground I have been too. Also the staff is very friendly and helpful.
One tip, fire pits do not have grill tops attached and the pit opening is pretty wide.
This is where we went when I was a kid. My first camping experiences. With all my cousins. They had a cement pad for chalking. Lots of trains for walking and biking. A store just around the corner we’d get ice cream at! Best place.
One trip and we were hooked. It has become a family tradition several times a year. Worth a 2+ hour drive. Lots of water lots and lots with water views. Clean bath houses.
Great place to take a camper with family. The campground offers clean facilities, general store, rentals for the lake, and camp events like movie night. With sites right on the water remember to bring your kayak! Trails in forest give oppertunity to explore, and just down the road from Mesick also.
Great site for first time campers or when you want to just get away quickly without having to take lots of equipment and supplies. Nice little camp store and pizza restaurant on site. Great playground, evening activities. Nice mix of electric hook up, R.V. and tent sites. Boat rentals, etc. Great place for a group of families to come camp together. Staff at the campground are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
This place was wonderful. The staff was all very nice, the grounds were clean, and our lot was huge. We asked to be away from the lake because of our young kids but the lake lots looked beautiful. We will be back.
Beautiful campground on the Manistee River! Nice facilities too.
