Nurturing the adventurous spirit through, Community, Local Food, & Live Music in Northern Michigan, Backyard Burdickville is a special place just outside of Empire, MI offering camping, Live Music, and the Backyard Market featuring produce and flowers from The Lively Farm. Visitors can explore the beauty of the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore by day and our starry landscape by night. Our 40x50 rustic campsites offer a picnic table, and about half are equipped with Fire Pits w/ Screens. Potable water hydrants and clean, regularly serviced porta-johns are available. Sites can accommodate small campers and camper vans but are not equipped for large RVs or motorhomes. If you are looking to park your larger camper vehicle or trailer, and need electricity, let us know as we do have a few larger sites with access to standard power outlets and can accommodate a larger camper. We do not have septic hook-ups, but can help you arrange a clean out from our portajohn servicer. However, out of respect for fellow campers, we do not allow generators in our campground. We aim to be family friendly! We want you to have fun, but please respect your neighbors. Quite Hours: 11pm-7am. If you need anything while you're here, we make every effort to be available onsite in the camp office (the small camper behind the wood) daily 12-4pm, and by phone, the number will be listed at our office onsite. Please send us a message if you have any questions or need anything during your stay! Address: 3805 W Empire HWY, Empire MI, 49630

The campsite was clean and easy to find. The other sites were pretty close, but the other campers were quiet so it was not an issue. Beautiful sunset over the trees. I would recommend this site.

My husband and I really enjoyed our time at Backyard Burdickville. It was a great location in Leelanau County. Emily was so kind. She and her husband offered us heavy duty stakes for our tent after it flipped over from wind. We would definitely stay again!
