Loved it!

This was the second place on our stop while visiting Michigan. The first place we stayed was nice, but super busy because there was a beach and lake. This place wasn't very busy because it was a bit isolated from other campgrounds. This campground is the furthest from the dock area, so less people travel to here. There was probably about 5 other families while we were here, which is surprising because it was mid July. I guess there are only like 7-8 sites, so that makes sense. We reserved our site online. The island is beautiful, and the beach area was amazing! Very clean, and private. Felt like we were on our own little island. The campground was clean as well. The attendants/rangers were super helpful and nice. They directed us to our location as well as give us some ideas for great hiking in the area. Definitely bring lots of water or some sort of filtration system because there is no fresh water to drink. The nice thing about a smaller campground and less sites is that they were separated really well. There was quite a bit of space between the sites, so it didn't feel like you were right on top of each other. Did some beautiful hikes that overlooked the water! I would 100% come back and enjoy this private campground again!
