About Three Lakes

Three Lakes Campground is a peaceful facility tucked away from the busy highway. It is nestled between Whitmarsh, Brown and Walker Lakes, giving visitors ample opportunity to enjoy and explore nature at its best.


The three lakes are open to non-motorized boating. A carry-down boat ramp is located at the campground's picnic area. Fishing is a popular activity. Rainbow trout, perch and catfish are found in the lakes. Although there is no designated swimming beach, sandy areas are located along the shores of the three lakes.

Hikers enjoy the serene atmosphere of the campground. The Walker Loop Trail begins within the campground, near the picnic area, and leads hikers around the perimeter of Walker Lake. The trail is easy hiking and traverses about 1.15 miles.


Three Lakes Campground is a rustic campground with single-family sites for tent and RV camping. Each is equipped with a table and campfire ring. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. A day-use picnic area is also available.

Natural Features

The campground is set among a variety of pine, spruce and maple trees on land sandwiched between Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. Whitmarsh, Brown and Walker Lakes dot the landscape to the north, south, and west of the campground.

Great spot to relax and enjoy nature!

Amazing lakes with extra large campsites. This was another favorite during our trip through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. There was a limited number of campsites available but all were very large with a fire ring and picnic table. While driving up to the campground you are on a picturesque 2 lane highway with trees surrounding you. As you pull in the campground is well taken care of with the campsites spread out from on another. If you have a kayak or canoe bring it as there are spots to launch your vessel. The vaulted toilets were clean and the drinking water was pure. We would stay here again except we would stay longer!

Exceptionally pretty site

Tons to explore in this area. Wooded campground, lots of water to walk along and other trails nearby. Campsites are among three lovely lakes, which makes a pretty amazing atmosphere. Lots of wildlife and birds. Nice primitive sites, just water tap and vault toilets. Really memorable campsite, especially if you have a kayak and do some stargazing. And close to Canada!
