Rockhound Hideaway on Black River

2 sites · Lodging2 acres · Bessemer, MI
An outdoor enthusiasts dream awaits at Rockhound Hideaway, with opportunities for hiking, biking, swimming, boating and everything in between. The property is situated on a two acre lot with three other rentals on the edge of the Ottawa National Forest, with my full time residence just a few doors away. Rockhound Hideaway is a short walk to Black River Harbor and Lake Superior, the North Country Trail, the scenic and wild Black River, and so many great outdoor adventures. The Black River is accessible from the property for those adventurous enough for a steep walk down the back of the property, or accessible from one of five parking areas along the stretch of road surrounding the property. Lake Superior is located 1 mile north up the road. Perfect for adventure seekers looking for a comfortable place to lay their head after a day exploring hiking trails, waterfalls, skiing, snowshoeing, and all the natural beauty the Ottawa National Forest has to offer. The property offers guests private space at each site, each site with its own charcoal grill, BYO charcoal, hammock, and fire ring. I provide 1 bundle of firewood per visit and more firewood is available at the common area for $5 per bundle. The restrooms for the property is a two stall outhouse for all guests to share located next to the common, which features a roofed sun room with picnic table, lounging area and fire pit. The common area, Kitchigami Commons is there for all guests to enjoy the outdoors in a different setting or enjoy the outdoors when it's raining. It has a fire pit, playing cards, yard games and two lake tubes for guests to take out and enjoy on the lake. This is also where I keep extra firewood and extra drinking water when the temps are above freezing. Please help yourself to the lake tubes, just return them to the Commons when you are done. There is a path from each site to the common area and outhouse. Kitchigami Commons is also where we cook down sap and turn it into maple syrup during the spring time maple season. I am still making improvements to the Commons to provide a more enjoyable shared space, but you are welcome to use it, explore it and access the floaties and games. Please just be aware I may be present there and actively working on improvements, though I keep anything loud limited to when guests aren't present.

Matt and KJ's Yard

2 sites · Tents4 acres · Ontonagon, MI
Our almost 4 acre slice of paradise. Last stop on the Ontonagon River before Lake Superior. Public access to Lake Superior is a short walk from our yard. When there are no burn bans, you can have a fire in our fire pit. We do have some larger wood available onsite at no charge if you wish to use it. Note: There is an active factory next door that has gotten busier and can make a lot of noise. Daytime noise probably isn't too problematic but it can go on at night too. Last year we opted to not offer camp sites for this reason. This year we decided to open up but to make sure guests know the potential. It is a weld shop so the noise is usually grinding or pounding of a hammer. In warmer weather, they open the door and it can be noisy for sure...but many have said it is still quieter than where their home is. Please be sure you are okay with this before booking. They currently work 5am-3am M-Thu and then a small crew 5am-5pm Fri-Sun. Friday-Saturday and Sunday are least likely to make noise but it is still possible.

Camping near Ontonagon guide

Overview

Set on the shores of Lake Superior on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Ontonagon has an abundance of camping adventures. Affectionately known as the Porkies, the landscape of Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park ranges from idyllic Lake Superior beaches to rugged terrain perfect for hiking. Presque Isle River flows through the area, inviting anglers to reel in brook, rainbow, and brown trout. Family-friendly campgrounds here offer everything from rustic backcountry tent camping to RV campsites with 30-amp hookups, firepits, and picnic tables. For a unique opportunity to reconnect with nature, hike into safari canvas tents. Just south is Ottawa National Forest where campers can explore one million acres of sprawling wilderness. Along with gorgeous waterfalls along the Middle Branch of the Ontonagon River, Bond Falls Flowage offers excellent fishing prospects—namely walleye, northern pike, and panfish. Go on a rugged, dispersed camping escape, or park travel trailers up to 60 feet long at on-site RV sites with convenient access to drinking water, hot showers, and toilet facilities.
