This is a campground in Yankee Spring Recreational Area in Mid-Michigan. This is a nice rustic campground near the NCT(North Country Trail).
We found this campground on a walk around the town of Ontonagon, but didn't get a chance to camp here as it was already closed for the season. We caught it after the beauty of the fall color had already gone, but it's probably a stunner! We'll be back sometime…
For such a township park, it has comprehensive services, with many waterfront options, and all sites have electricity. The sites are rustic, there is a dump station as well as a water filling station for RVs. The bathhouse has showers, there is a cute playground, and it has beautiful views of both Lake Superior and the Porcupine Mountains (about 20 miles away). You can easily walk into town for basic supplies.
Options for hiking, cycling, and water activities of all kinds abound. This campground is one of many along the shores of Lake Superior's Water Trail.
We stayed during very hot weather at the beginning of July 2020. I wanted to visit Potter Park Zoo so we choose to stay at Sleepy Hollow for a few days. Our site backed up to trees and I can't recall seeing our neighbors to the left or right. Because we didn't get any shade from the nearby trees we had to run the ac which is unusual for us in Michigan. We were in the midst of a heat-wave though and it was much appreciated. The park needs to upgrade the electrical system as this was putting a strain on their electrical equipment. We did go for a short paddle on (C) Ovid Lake, but again, no shade and HOT. I can't recall why we didn't go swimming?? Overall the campground was nice and I would stay again.
