This place is run by the family that lives there and has been my go to spot for stays at the New. Great launching pad for river activities and climbing. The bathrooms are clean and spacious to accommodate the number of campers. It can be a little old school in that you have to text to get in touch with them and make reservations but they are always willing to make things work so you can have a good place to sleep. If the sites are full, they'll help you find a nice place in the communal areas. Also super close to the burrito spot.
It was super crowded when we got there… All sites are practically on top of each other with little privacy. You can't build a fire without a fire ring but not all sites have them. We tried to build our own with rocks around and a woman watching us, camping across from us, came up to tell us that wasn't allowed and we couldn't have a fire at our site (the only available one). Site itself hardly fit one tent on a slightly uneven ground. We took a chance and found another amazing, much more welcoming and comfortable spot, 20 mins down the road (see other reviews). This surprised us bc it had such good reviews on maps.
The road that the GPS told us to go down was closed but if you follow the sign posts they'll take you the right way. The sites offer privacy and beautiful lakeside views under canopies of trees. The toilets are minimalist but fine. The ambience is amazing. We fell asleep to the sound of Loons over the water. I would definitely stay here again.
We got one of the spots closer to the road but turned out great! These spots don't have quite the lake view but seem to feel more quiet and secluded. The lake views were gorgeous, amenities fine. We found this after leaving another spot closer to Marquette that felt uninviting despite all the reviews. We were so glad we took a chance and found this place instead!
