Great for car camping on a whim

My partner and I love Buzzards Roost but we used to love it more. It used to have a sweet little walk in spot down the bouldering trail that looked over the river. Now it is overgrown and you can't get back there. I wish the DNR would bring it back and maintain the river overlook down at the water. That being said, it is a beautiful drive in, a great shaded and well maintained pull in car camping area. It does fill up a bit since it is free so if you go to check out the wonderful walk down to the water don't take a camp spot. If you go to camp, pull directly into the spot you want to camp before you check out any of the short hiking around the spot.

amazing spot on the lake!

what a beautiful temporary home. we arrived in the early afternoon then went over to Pictured Rocks Kayaking for an afternoon kayak trip (highly recommend!) and made it back before sunset. we reserved a spot in a loop off the lake and it was only a 5 mIn walk to the shores. not buggy at all, wonderful temperatures in late July, the super cool Bay Furnace ruins, and an all around quiet and relaxing place. wish I could have stayed for a week.
