Very nice

Spent a week here over the July 4th holiday. Very nice park, clean, and we'll maintained. Owners lead you to your site and assist getting your rig lined up with water/sewer connections. Great pool, separate area for boat/trailer parking. Very quiet at night.

Way Off the Beaten Path

If you like to get away, this campground may be just what you’re looking for. There are only about 8 sites in the remote location, and they always seem to fill up fast! The location is a fantastic spot to see or hear elk, as well as a great place to fish the Pigeon River.

The road leading into this location is well worn and rutted. The twists and turns will make getting an RV in a fun experience, but you can do it. I’m always amazed at the size of some of the units that make it back there.

This is a secluded, out in the back woods, rustic campground!

Calm and quaint

Small, calm little campground. Some sites are at the lake, little beach, (no pets allowed at the beach). We had a great relaxing stay. Good for stopping, on your way to the UP or else. But since the lake is all private property it lacks the wilderness charm . Still a very nice campground to relax and explore the surrounding spots, Lake Huron Au Sable River…

This is what you learn to love

This is the best rustic campground you’ll find. Pit toilets, water down the way, fire rings and picnic tables. Good distance between site and clean!!! Love this place!!! Easy access to carp river. Some site back up to river edge. I stayed at 14 which is quiet and is an amazing site.

Small and sweet

Open and not much shade but large sites. Very small beach. It is first come first serve self register and all of the registration sheets were out when we checked it. Though they are one of the few campgrounds along highway 2 with sites available in the later afternoon. Also it is far enough from the highway to not have a lot of highway noise. Pleasant bare bones camping but not my first choice.

Great overnight backpacking

The shingle mill pathway in Pigeon River State Forest was a nice, quiet trail. Went on a Thursday in June and saw 1 other person over 2 days. If you hike about 6 miles the first day, you’ll find a nice dispersed campsite on the west side of grass lake. The only problem with this hike was the insane amount of ticks.

Rustic camping dream

Love this campground. Rustic camping! Sites are spaced out, several trails, and a beach to swim at. Only 15-20 minutes form Lake Huron and the lighthouse.

Site 1 only has one neighbor but there is a good distance between. RV 30ft fit perfectly fine with truck.

The kids were able to ride their bikes around without a worry, cement pad.

No water or electric hook up Water pump right across from site 1. Back by site 10 is a path that leads to the beach area.

Ice cream shop on the corner of the street you enter from.

End of May trip, bugs were pretty bad. Bring bug spray.


Rustic campground. Most sites are private. Some premium spots back up to river. Stars are amazing.

Ranger Review: Morsel Spork At Round Lake State Forest

Campground Review:

First, let me just say, this state forest campground is probably one of my new favs! So quiet and peaceful, tons of trails, and little lakes all tucked around. There are only about 10 sites here, but they are all a really nice size. About half of them have a nice lake view. Each site has the standard picnic table and fire ring and there is a shared rustic toilet as well. At night the sky was incredible and there is even areas along the trails for elk viewing. Great little spot!


Product Review:

Now that I have become a Ranger for the Dyrt, I sometimes receive products to test from time to time. On this trip I have the opportunity to try out my first (and not last) Morsel Spork. Before this trip, I was under the assumption that all sporks were somewhat the same (confession: I think until now I’ve always bought really cheap sporks). Either way, eating with this beauty was not only comfortable, but it actually handled like a normal piece of cutlery. It's also extremely lightweight and easy to clean, making it perfect for backpacking or lightweight ventures.

So pretty here!

I love this area so much! So much to explore and not heavily trafficked at all. NCT runs through the state forest, so dispersed camping all around. There are a few rustic campgrounds, but we usually just stay at one of the dispersed sites because most of them have a sweet set up. Lots of awesome sink holes to swim in, and even elk sightings. If you can manage to find this place, you will love it!
