Difficult to locate, beautiful land
The land is beautiful and vast here. BUT! We ran into a lot of trouble finding the campsite as there is no signing or clear directions. You NEED an off road vehicle to get to the distant sites as the grasses are super long and the path is really unclear. Did not see clear firepits in the distant sites, as the grasses are so long it overtook any walking space. my recommendation is to get there early and camp near the tepee. Minimal bugs and a quiet place.

We love how we feel like we have the whole place to ourselves as the sites are spaced out so you rarely see neighboring campers.

A Hidden Gem...
If you are looking to step away from the busy life... reserve with Amelia! Beautiful views, sounds of nature, and a night sky (dark skies) worthy of at least one magical memory. Completely away from the cities, back deep inside the country... Rustic Camping areas, complete with horses (bring carrots), a full array of feathered friends to keep you company. If you are into birding, highly recommend this space. I couldn't get enough of the variety - wrens, cowbirds, humming birds, ravens, white throated sparrows, woodpeckers, hawks, geese, owls even a small flock of I believe herons flew in the last morning. If you are fortunate the sunsets and the sunrises are beyond Magical. Little amenities, so be prepared with water, backwoods toilets/ shower options, and keep sites clean. Lots of critters to visit with. I will be back soon!

Peaceful Northern Michigan Camping
Would absolutely stay here again. Amelia was very helpful and provided information after the booking that made it very easy to find the location. It was peaceful and beautiful, which is exactly what we were looking for. Great camping spot!

Great Night Sky Views
Amelia’s property was very secluded and private, we were tent camping and were given two sites to choose from, the far site is very private and located down a not so maintained 2 track, the site itself isn’t the most ideal for tents if ground sleeping. The only level areas had very rough patches of grass. We opted for the closer site which also was tough to find a level sleeping pad. The sites had grass just below knee high, maybe bring a weed wacker. The campsite has an awesome view over the meadow, and is unmatched for the views you experience at night. Amelias herself was an absolute sweetheart and very accommodating, would certainly recommend.

Amelia’s property is absolutely amazing, it has very secluded and primitive sites which makes it feel as though you’ve truly escaped. Beautiful rolling hills, wild horses, natural fire pits and incredible star gazing at night make this a truly special place. Plus, Amelia herself is a fantastic host, she sent clear and timely messaging, greeted us when we arrived and guided us to our site. We will definitely be staying here again!
