Great spot!
Great secluded and well hidden wee spot in amongst the trees, great to keep cool/avoid the heat in summer. David was a great host and super helpful.

Campgrounds in the area were all booked and we just wanted a place to park our camper and come back to at the end of the day of exploring Mackinac Island etc. Dave's land worked out great! It is wooded and level. It accomadated our 20 foot trailer well.

Weekend camping. Dogs included
It’s a perfect place in the UP. Close the US-2 beach area. Secure and well maintained

The site was just what we wanted for our tent camping family of four. The 'outhouse' was waaaay nicer than what we had in mind. That was super nice. Everything was nice! ...and like others have said, be prepared for the mosquitoes.

This site was a great find for us needing a last minute place to stay on a spontaneous roadtrip- this site was clean, private, stocked with firewood and had convenient composting toilet that was very well kept. We only had one small tent and car- but there would have been plenty of space for more than that. Easy drive into St. Ignace for breakfast, 20 minutes or so out from the bridge to Mackinac City- nice stop!

The property was very private. It was nice and flat with soft pine needles under the tent. The fire pit was nice and there was much deadwood around to supplement purchased firewood. No picnic table but a homemade table of sorts. Composting toilet was an unexpected bonus. Comfortable, clean, and not stinky. We had brought our own water as there is no water at the site. It was about 15 minutes from St Ignace and it was very easy to get on Sheplers ferry to Mackinaw island. Excellent base camp indeed.

Everything was exactly how it was described on the listing. Very quiet and relaxing. Space was clean and the instructions were clear. Definitely recommend getting to the site during the day time, since its very dark and the entrance might be hard to find. 10/10. Would love to come back! Close to many tourists spots. The compost toilet was clean and close by.

A really peaceful, simple, secluded area. Great having a nearby convenience store with gas. Great launching point for adventuring around the eastern UP!

Very nice, private, rustic campground. We enjoyed our stay. Only con is that it was tricky to maneuver our truck and 14 foot trailer. If the host were to take out just a few more trees that would help alot.

Great rest for weary riders
Stayed 2 nights to ride the Moran -166 bike race, site was easy to find and a great space to relax beforehand and konk out afterwards. I'd definitely use the site again for future visits to the area.

Awesome, quiet, and relaxing.
It was a quiet place to camp. Nice and close to the sites to see. The lake down the road was awesome, clear, with a sandy bottom, and shallow. It was great to come back to a campsite that was secluded after being with all the other tourists.

It's quiet and really shady. The lake down the road is clear with a sandy bottom. This was an awesome camping spot. We had a blast going to all the touristy places and then coming back to our very private and quiet campsite. If you don't mind going without amenities this is a great place. We love Boone docking and this is a great spot.

This is a great place to stay just across the Macinaw bridge. It is super close to Brevort Lake where we kayaked and really close to ORV trails (less than a mile) where we road our side by side all day going from town to to town. Very cool setting in the woods! We will definietly stay again!

Loved the ambience.
Just as described by the host, David. Well shaded and protected from the wind. Buggy, but we expected them. Beautiful area. Firewood was available. Very private site.

Quiet in the UP
Would definitely stay again here next time we are in the UP, especially if David does the improvements that he plans to make it easier to get in and out with an RV. Nice quiet spot

This campsite was everything we expected and above. We had trouble understanding the details of campsite’s location, however, the host was kind enough to explain every bit of the information.

Nice spot to camp. Beautiful trees and close to everything we wanted to do. Nice lake to swim in. Quite neighbors that are also nice. Didnt see to many animals but lots of slugs. Heard a couple owls at night. Just a wonderful place to stay. Make sure you take the bug spray.
