Chill spot

We decided to stay 5 days here after our original plan fell through. It’s a smaller secluded campground with larger sites. We arrived in the middle of the week so there were a variety of sites available. Each site has a fire pit and picnic table. Be prepared to bring enough firewood and supplies as many of the shops nearby close early.

Pros: Little Brevort lake is a great spot for stargazing with good visibility and shooting stars. Large sites, close to Lake Michigan, quiet, secluded, great views, shaded sites, inexpensive, opportunity to listen to native wildlife.

Cons: Sites can be close together but not clustered. Bathrooms are stocked by DNR but were FULL of flies. No individual trash cans, dumpster only. We made the mistake of buying cheap trash bags that ripped on the way to the dumpster.


If you avoid the electric forest crowd there are plenty of available spots. We were able to camp right on the lake with room between neighbors for privacy. My favorite feature is a wooden playground with equipment large enough for adults. At night, trails and playground are illuminated with string lights. Really sets the atmosphere. Campground owners are very helpful and accommodating!

Pros: Relaxed atmosphere, running water available, hot showers, free charging outlets, supplies for purchase provided by owners, great swimming, lots of areas with shade for those in tents.

Cons: close to the highway so it can be noisy at night, port-a-potties can be questionable
