This camp ground was kind of hard to find. Had to stop at the gun lake camp ground (where the GPS took us) and ask for directions. Once we pulled up a park ranger came out and greeted us. Check in was smooth, and a map of the camp site was given to us. Your neighbors are close and there isn't much tree area to the sides. Nice family atmosphere though. Nice picnic table and fire pit. Our campsite was about a 2 minute walk from the fishing dock/boat launch. They do have group camp sites near the water. Outhouses smell like they haven't been changed since the beginning of the summer, avoid the campsites near them. The long fishing dock is nice so you can speard out, and easy walking trails as well. Make sure you bring your own firewood.
These campsites are right on the water and next to the Manistee River trail. It has a bathroom, boat launch access, and handicap parking. Great for a weekend get away! Also backpacked the trail and had amazing views not far in. I highly recommend going here!
This campsite is off the beaten path and it's well worth the hike. Non-reservation limited camping sites, so you better make sure you get there early. It's along the river and breath taking. With a canoe/kayak rental just down the road, it's an awesome place to spend a week. I highly recommend it.
This campground is right on the beach and is gorgeous. They have lots of trails to walk to keep you busy, and a wonderful view.
This campground is a great get away during the summer. The drive is very relaxing to get out to the camp ground. Right at your finger tips you have the lake. Check in was a smooth process, and such lovely camp neighbors. Such a wonderful experience to relax, and enjoy the sunshine!
