Charming, private campground!
What a gem of a spot. Besides just being in a great location - so close to Glen Arbor, all of what Sleeping Bear Dunes has to offer, Traverse City is an easy drive - the camp is set up so well. We took advantage of the outdoor and indoor showers while we stayed for the week. The outdoor ones are the best, but as it got chillier, the indoor was a nice option to have. We had our little camper, so didn't need the available outdoor kitchen area, but it was set up so nicely and love that it was there. Also a large communal fire pit, horse shoe pits, another game I don't know the name of. White lights to lead you around at night, and just tall beautiful trees all around. We met Robb the first night and saw him again on our last one, and was very easy to communicate with at all times. Gave us great recommendations to whats around - excellent winery close by - St. Ambrose! Very lovely, comfortable place to spend some time away.

Camp Moonshadow was lovely! Instructions were clear beforehand, everything is well marked in the camp, and we had everything we needed. Hosts are kind and friendly. We came at a quiet and chilly time of year but we’re comfortable and would absolutely stay again.

We really enjoyed camping at this beautiful site. Robb was a helpful and friendly host, made sure we had everything we needed and provided a lot of things above and beyond the usual. We had a great time at the beach just a few minutes away, and the outdoor shower is of course a highlight!

Family camping was a hit!
This was our first hipcamp stay.. We are glad we picked such a great place! Friendly hosts and cool outdoor shower (there was always hot water available)! The location wasn't far from the sand dunes and about 30 mins from Traverse City and Fishtown. The pine forest camping layout was neat and relaxing. I would suggest anyone with leg/walking issues to rent the camper. The incline to the tent camping areas would could an issue for someone with leg problems. The common areas were very useful and made packing much lighter, since we didn't have to pack cooking equipment. My only turn off about the whole weekend/place, is that we went to get away from the everyday "rat race" and reality, and seeing the (small amount of) political stuff was a turn off (and we agreed with it). We definitely stay again! We give them 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and thank them for allowing us to use their beautiful property while making wonderful family memories. Thank you!

At first I was a bit disappointed on the fact that we couldn’t do the firelight on our tent site, but it turned to be cool because we get to meet other neighbors and it was awesome, place is great and close to main attractions

Very Nice Private Campground
Everything was amazing. They thought of every thing you would need camping and added to the site with no extra charge. Such as firewood,fire fit,picnic tables, showers,kitchen area with cooking equipment, line to dry your clothes, charcoal grill! The area was very pretty as well as being really close to major touristic points. Overall we were really happy with our stay and would love to come back!

Dog friendly camping
Great camping experience! Everything was clean and well cared for. The showers had hot water. Everything in the kitchen worked and they had cups, pans, utensils and such for campers use! The camp sites had just enough space to have a little privacy. Great experience and great hosts! Would highly recommend

Family Camping Trip
Camp Moonshadow has a nice little setup going on. We used one of the six tent sites for three people and two tents and had plenty of room at the site. But we spent more time down at the Kitchen/Dining area and the communal firepit. The tent sites were first come first served and we had our pick as the first to arrive on Friday afternoon. By Saturday evening the RV site, five of the six tent sites, and the Shasta camper were all rented and it still felt like we were the only ones there. Uncrowded and really peaceful, just what we were looking for. We even spotted a big barn owl at our site one night when we were going to bed.

Such a great spot! Perfect location, and has all the extra amenities to make it that much more enjoyable - hot water shower, clean port-o-potties, shared kitchen with running drinking water, covered areas to play games or eat, yard games, etc. Robb and Jeanne are incredible hosts who have truly thought of it all! We'll be back!

Cute site. Really close to Esch beach which was very pretty. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The fridge and charcoal grill were both very appreciated. It also felt like a LGBT friendly/welcoming place.

Camping in style!
We loved our stay at Camp Moonshadow! Robb and Jeanne’s property is beautiful and peaceful. The outdoor kitchen with cooking essentials made it easy to cook great meals and store perishable goods. The outdoor shower is also such a luxury. Great stargazing and surprisingly great cell service (if you need it). We felt that we had enough space and privacy but also enjoyed chatting with Robb in the morning before we checked out. Only regret is that we didn’t stay longer! 👍🏻👍🏻

Extremely friendly and helpful hosts created a relaxing, no pressure environment. Quiet sleeping at the RV site in a beautiful red pine forest. Outstanding, double, outdoor shower with hot water. Great location- convenient to Esch Beach and the whole National Lakeshore.

Van life!
Camp Moonshadow was excellent. Details are important to me and I loved how clean the porta-John’s were and that they included hand washing basins. I appreciated the care Robb took to meet all of his guests, offering advice on the best swim holes and restaurants, fresh kindling for our fire, and great facilities. They had great signage to make finding things easy. Such a great couple and a wonderful, quiet, beautiful camp spot. I loved how the pine trees cast a golden glow over the grounds.

Absolutely loved this spot. There are so many cool things about it that I can’t capture them all in a review. The outdoor shower with hot water was a huge bonus! As a side note, this is a perfect place to sleep in an eno/hammock. The trees are in parallel rows at every site.

Rob and Jeanne's land is beautiful! One of our favorite campsites. The boys loved the little soccer field, the porta potties were clean, and the community areas were great (kitchen, firepit). Would definitely return and highly recommend this place to others!

Place was better than what I expected! Took my wife and 8 year old son for their first camping experience! Robb and Jeanne greeted us when we arrived and left the camp. Very hospitable and all around great hosts! Highlights of the stay were Esch Beach, which was just 5 minutes down the road, the outdoor shower, communal firepit, the kitchen, watching the stars at night, and the overall serenity of nature in this remote area of northern Michigan!
