Once the location of a ski resort, this property was bought up by the competition and dismantled. Sitting on top of the old ski hill, this 10 acre property now offers a beautiful view of Barney Lake and the surrounding state forest. This property is situated near a dirt road that leads directly into hundreds of miles of off-road trails and state forest, yet is close enough to town (7 miles) to enjoy the local establishments. No access to the lake is available from the site, but there are plenty of other lakes and rivers in the area to enjoy!Set up your tent, RV, or camper with a beautiful view of the surrounding state forest and overlook of Barney Lake.  Located just 2 miles off 127, enjoy this private site with fire ring and picnic table.  Access to miles of off road trails, state land, and quick access to Houghton and Higgins Lakes or the Muskegon River for boating, kayaking, and tubing.  Located just 7 miles from town, this allows for a quick trip to get supplies or enjoy local establishments.  Northern Michigan is a beautiful place to camp in the summer, but remember to bring your mosquito repellent!

Solar Power Friendly with a View
This is our first Hipcamp experience and it was a great piece of property! It had the privacy we desired and the view was even better than the pictures. Our rig is about 33 feet long and there’s a second driveway that was an absolute necessity for us. The level gravel pad made setup a dream - particularly since we arrived just before dark and in the rain. We use solar power so having the openness in the site was fantastic.

Very private campsite and beautiful views to the lake, especially under sunset. The site is very clean, especially the toilet. We ordered fire wood and half dozen eggs, all were ready before we arrived. Highly recommend if you want a quite night with a lake view .

Beautiful site!
What a wonderful location! We needed a quick overnight spot on our travel route that would give the dogs some room to run about. This site was ideal, and such a great view. We liked it so much we've booked it for another night on our return trip.

Adam and Sarah's property was absolutely perfect. We had an amazing time taking in the breathtaking views not to mention all the stars at night! They day we arrived to Barney Lake Vista there was heavy rain. Adam and Sarah were thoughtful and held our wood order until the rain let up. When asked where a good spot to fish was, they pinned us a great location. We definitely plan on booking again in the near future.
