We had an AMAZING stay at Eli’s camp on our road trip through the Great Lakes. The lake was beautiful and calm. The weather was perfect, so we were able to enjoy a beautiful sunset AND sunrise! We made a fire in the fire pit next to the camper, and set up our tent on the edge beach. It was perfect! FYI: No designated area to do your business, so be sure to bring a little shovel and practice proper backwoods guidelines for that 👍🏻

We loved staying at the surf camp. The setting is ideal to relax and take in the beauty of Lake Michigan. We loved running around with our dogs on the beach and waking up to sunrise with a cup of coffee. 10/10 recommend if you are looking for a place to camp in Wiggins point. We are already looking forward to our next stay!

I had some fun skipping rocks in the lake. We went in October and it was just a little too chilly to swim, but otherwise I would have! The firepit is made from stones. We brought our own firewood (sold at most gas stations in the area)We drove our van into this parking area. This wooded area is what you'll see when you first pull into the campsiteWe enjoyed coffee on the beach.

Our stay at surf camp was absolutely incredible! A beautiful, quiet spot on Lake Michigan. We set up our tents right on the beach. The star gazing was unreal our first night, we saw the milky way! It was about an hour to Munising, which was perfect! We would recommend to anyone looking to stay someplace secluded and magical!

Wow, surf camp is right. There is a shallow area leading to shore so there are constant waves breaking. It was very relaxing like being on the ocean. There were almost no mosquitoes and a great breeze coming off the lake. Excellent little camp spot.

The view and beach area is absolutely gorgeous and perfect. We parked our 25 ft RV at the end of the lot horizontal to the two track and maximized the space available. Nice sandy bottom areas to swim within feet up the beach. Cool to have 2 fire pits!

Absolutely amazing experience. Stunner spot right on Lake Michigan, gorgeous views… truly a special place. I definitely want to stay there again, they drive is easy and Eli made sure to provide excellent directions and signage. Highly recommend this spot!

Cute & helpful “Surf Camp” signs get you there easily.

Surf Camp was a nice stay for our first night in the UP. It is as advertised. We had a nice fire and were able to relax on the beach. I would recommend using Google Maps and plugging in the GPS coordinates provided as there is limited service and lots of turns to get there.

Great secluded spot on the beach ⛱️

Great secluded spot on the beach. It's rustic, so you only have what you bring. Beautiful to wake up to crashing waves and seagulls.

Unfortunately many of our days were raining/cloudy but we still enjoyed it. We saw many Seagulls, two Bald Eagles, garder snakes and even a Massasauga rattlesnake sunning itself on the beach before it saw us and quickly slithered into the woods.

Well worth the price if you have a small camper or enjoy tent camping. Quick drive to many waterfalls and parks.

Please take your trash/tarps/toilet waste with you FFS! For $10 you can dump all your waste at Indian Lake Campground. This is a great spot and others deserve to enjoy it too!
