Such a quiet peaceful spot on a small lake. If it'd been warmer it would have been a great spot to paddleboard. We were the only ones there & that made it even better & a great place for our doggie to run around. There is even a nice pit toilet there & Michael invited us to pick apples from the many trees on the property!

Not entirely private, but beautiful
I chose the ‘mixed feelings’ option for this site mainly because of privacy. This is more on me than the host. I prefer privacy when camping and felt like the 3 sites were on top of each other all taking up about the space of a football field. If you chose the site closest to the dock, other campers would be walking right past you to get to the dock. If you chose the site closest to the outhouse, then kind of the same situation there. The middle site had little privacy because of the other 2 sites were within 100’ of you. I was there for the first night by myself and decided to checkout before others arrived at the other sites for the weekend. That aside, it has a beautiful small lake which I enjoyed in my kayak with 2 loons that were very interested in me. I floated to the middle and they hung around me swimming back and forth, ducking under on one side of me while popping up on another. It’s been 35 years since I’ve experienced that. The site is extremely quiet which allowed me to hear all flock of birds fly overhead like I’ve never heard before. Very cool. I have a large telescope that I was able to setup in the open area in the middle of the 3 sites. It was an excellent dark sky and great views outside of the trees blocking the horizon. If there were other campers, I’m not sure I would have been able to enjoy the night sky til 2am as I did. If you don’t mind others close by, this site is perfect. If you prefer to be alone, then not so much.

Tent camping with dogs
This place was a dope spot! There’s 3 total spots here each with their own fire ring. Plus access to Sandy lake with a doc to fish off. A nice porta potty (a little hidden) it’s up by the first spot on the right when you first pull in. Def would come back here again!

Quiet lake spot with loons
Beautiful spot on a little lake. There’s three spots in a field surrounded by woods. Little dock to watch the sunset, and picnic tables and cute custom fire rings to have a fire. Easy to find, just follow the camping sign to the right. Pit toilet too.by tvhhbbhhggghhggggb Loons calling at night, lovely spot. A. (.

We loved camping at Michael's place! You could see the most beautiful sunsets, the lake is right there, the campsites are big and the outhouse was new and clean. Firewood was provided. Michael was really nice and the communication was good and fast. Great place to go camping with dogs. Our dogs loved it as much as we did 😊

This is a beautiful property on the lake! We enjoyed taking our kayaks out on the water, and we were fortunate to enjoy our next door neighbor’s fireworks on July 3rd. The sunset and the star gazing were also amazing! We appreciated having new picnic tables, fire ring, and a vault toilet with a motion activated light. There are three sites, but they were all spaced out enough that we felt like we still had privacy from other campers. There is a site near the woods and closest to the toilet, one site in an open area, and another closest to the lake with several trees for shade. I would definitely camp here again if ever in the area.

The host was very responsive when we couldn't figure out directions there, and he was kind with booking. However, the site wasn't quite as private as we had hoped for from the listing's description. Unfortunately, we didn't end up staying and setting up camp because the mosquitos were pretty insane (which does make sense being next to a lake). Would be a nice site in the fall!

Nice private spot on the lake
What a pleasant treat to camp here! We pitched our tent in the area up near the new pit toilet. We couldn't find the toilet at first, but it's nestled up there in the trees. Nice! Had our own picnic table and fire ring. Nice walk to our own (for campers) dock in the morning where we had our coffee. Michael met us soon after we arrived. Great guy! We could see how much he's already done to the camping area, and excited to hear his plans for further development. The area wehad was very private. Quiet around the lake, too. We loved our time at this site. When we come back, we'll likely bring the kayaks and explore the lake and maybe others, too. We definitely recommend Michael's HipCamp site! Two thumbs up!

Trip of a lifetime
We are from Tennessee and have never been to Michigan, much less Northern Michigan. We booked this site for eight nights; hoping to have a peaceful, rejuvenating trip with some exciting adventures mixed in. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE GOT! Mike is such a kind, helpful host, and we were so grateful for his recommendations on breakfast, fishing, sightseeing, and just general things to do in the area. We had the most amazing stay. It was quiet, peaceful, and absolutely breathtaking! He provided a private restroom for use on the property, a beautiful dock on the lake (perfect for sunsets and casting a line), a large fire ring which made cooking and campfires a (gentle) breeze, tons of FREE firewood, and wonderful conversation! We will definitely be keeping this on our list of upcoming visits!! Please do yourself a favor and go stay at Gentle Breeze!

Spent a great night here. Like someone mentioned in an earlier review, this spot seems to be a work in progress.. But the potential is obvious, as well as the hard work that’s going into it. I was happy to support the efforts.. Quiet, pretty, peaceful spot by the lake.

Michael was a great host and replied quickly when we had trouble finding the site. He made sure we knew where everything was, and the outhouse was new and very clean. I would return here!

This spot is a hidden gem. The campsite is flat, well-maintained, has a fire pit, and looks west over a very tranquil lake so you'll get nice sunset views on clear days. No potable water at the moment, but that didn't really bother me because I had plenty. There's a public toilet at the boat launch a short drive away on the south end of the lake.

Private, peaceful - beautiful area!
Peaceful setting with unblemished view of the night sky! We loved setting up camp as the full moon rose over the field and wild apple orchard. There is plenty of room to find your special spot and you can’t ask for more quiet or privacy! Mike was very responsive and gave excellent directions. He came to greet us the next morning and made us wish we could stay longer. There is so much to explore in the surrounding woods/lakes and such a feeling of being truly alone in the woods.

Easy to find and very peaceful.
Micheal T. at Gentle Breeze Camping provided a perfect place to set up camp. It’s a very peaceful location that provided a perfect sunset from the dock. By the looks of things, it appears that Gentle Breeze Camping is activity working on improving the camping amenities. This HipCamp is going to be a Hidden Gem for those exploring the Upper Peninsula!
