Enjoy the comforts of home—including flush toilets, showers, and a kitchen.
Chad and I are long-time residents of Kalkaska County. We are also avid kayakers, runners, and overall nature enthusiasts. We are blessed with an amazing property on the North Branch of the Manistee River! It isn't the main branch of the Manistee River, BUT it flows right into it and offers so much more privacy, quietness, and peacefulness. With the 8 acres, it's perfect for glamping camping! The amazing bath house is complete and was thoroughly enjoyed this past season by many glampers!

Beautiful glamping site
This was my first Hipcamp experience. It did not disappoint. The hosts seem to really be dedicated to making sure everything is there. There’s chilled wine waiting for you. There’s coffee and coffee pots. Just bring your food and clothes and any special medications and toiletries. This spot is beautiful. There is an area lined with lights that leads to the river with chairs, hammocks and a firepit. Absolutely beautiful! You can pay a bit extra for a load of wood to be waiting at your site. It is a generous load. Everything is there to make a fire. The bed is sooo comfy. The hosts were helpful for questions because I got lost. I heard an owl. Saw a blue Jay. You are way out in nature. Just what I needed for a getaway. Lights are setup everywhere so you can find your way on the property.

Awesome glamping!
We loved glamping on Chad & Aimee’s property. It all looked so beautiful and peaceful. They have everything you need and more! They provided kayaks for a fee and our kayak trip was awesome. Chad and Aimee are very helpful and accomodating. Would definitely stay here again and spread the word in The Netherlands;)

I spent four nights at C&A and it was great! I slept close enough to the river that I could hear it when I fell asleep at night and woke up in the morning. Stargazing at night from the nearby hammocks was also beautiful. Aimee and Chad truly had everything you might need on site, from bug spray and firewood to fresh towels, toiletries, a big cooler, and indoor and outdoor shower facilities. They were on site for some of my time there, and they were welcoming and helpful. They provided suggestions for the nearby town, as well as Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Chad's knowledge of local wildlife made it fun to learn about the owls, cranes, and whippoorwills calling from the nearby trees. I'm already thinking of ways to go back!

Rippling Bluff, Glamping UP NORTH!
Glamorous Experience!
We absolutely loved Chad and Aimee’s space. Very helpful in getting us on our kayak adventure and the bathhouse experience was such a blessing to have in the middle of the woods. We will be back.

My son and I had a great time! I over packed as they had all the cooking utensils, a coffee maker, and chairs for a very easy and stress free trip. Will definitely come back and know to back lighter. Thanks Aimee!

Beautiful Weekend
Chad and Aimee were AMAZING hosts! They were so accommodating and exceeded every expectation we had. Their property is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Each site is private, but the shared bathhouse (which is extremely clean and comes with nicer amenities than most hotels) is a short, easy walk away. The site was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy the weekend; rain or shine. Truly, just bring your food and ice and you are set. We are also so thankful they allowed our pup to join us. She loved meeting their dogs and had an even better time than we did!!! Thank you, Chad and Aimee! We look forward to staying again soon!
