Mid michigan campground

This is a campground in Yankee Spring Recreational Area in Mid-Michigan. This is a nice rustic campground near the NCT(North Country Trail).

Just right

Rustic campground. Shaded. Easy access to vaulted toilets and water. So many hiking trails and access to beautiful deep lake.


Great rustic sites! Beautiful and wooded. Would be perfect if your into mountain biking as has great trails. All and all it’s an okay place to camp but I just think better rustic sites are not that much further away.

Did the trick, beautiful walking

This campground was really nice and peaceful and there were lots of trees. We didn't have the best weather the weekend we went so there were a lot of tarps rigged up to provide shelter from possible rain. 

There is a lake and really nice hiking trails that we took advantage of. The rangers were constantly patrolling (even at night) which was kind of weird. We couldn't buy firewood at the campground when we arrived. 

Overall - good for a couple days, not our favorite.

Nice rustic campsite with lake and walking paths.

Big sites, many with pull through sites. Kids area and pit toilets are close.


It’s been years since I have been here but have great memories of rustic camping with family here growing up. Great large sites with nice views of the lake. The fun of roughing it rustic style.

Large and rustic

Lots of sites available! Disappointed that it was not open year round but the trails are still open. There’s a beautiful lake to fish and kayak. Tons of hiking trails!!

Decent rustic campground

Lots of sites to choose from, lake had some good fishing. The tent worms were terrible where our site was. Ranger patrols a lot, which is nice if you need them. Lots were a good size. Bathrooms were pretty clean too. Overall it was quite and we enjoyed our time.

Great rustic campground.

If you want seclusion away from the parking lot atmosphere down the road at Yankee Springs this is your place. There is much more space at each campsite and lots of old growth trees. The sites over looking Deep Lake are wonderful if you can snag one. This is a rustic campground and they have NO electricity or water and many are smaller tent sites. But the peace and quiet is great. You are just a short drive away from Yankee Springs and Gun Lake with the huge beach, plus you are basically right on the NCT and have access to miles of hiking and biking trails. This is a great campground if you don’t mind “roughing it”.

Great camp ground lots of shade camp site are spaceful and you can pick your site

Great times has a fishing dock and a boat landing but no beach
