Heritage Hills isn't called Heritage Hills for nothing! It's situated on 21 acres of what was the original Wawonowin Country Club, a 9-hole golf course that was built in the early 1800s and then closed in the mid 1960s. This area was boom town in those early days because the very spot where iron ore was discovered is within walking distance! You are free to explore by foot, bike or horse the whole 800 acres between Ishpeming and Negaunee (and further if you would like!) and expedience this diverse area of hardwoods, pines, meadows and some wetlands, too, to discover many historical spots of interest. We can provide a map if you would like to explore on your own, or put together a special tour by wagon or horse to see top points of interest like Mathews Cross: a big steel cross mounted in a big rock about 600 some feet up, erected by historian Frank Mathews in  honor of all the miners who died. You can walk around Union Park originally built for the Green Bay packer team (now the Packers) to play the Ishpeming/Negaunee football team but later a horse harness race track where Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show performed! Explore areas of old mines, and where Iron ore was discovered: the Iron Ore Heritage trail is nearby, too. It's a 48 mile walking & biking trail with historical points and old shafts and pits along that way - it goes all the way to Lake Superior if you dare go that far!  Heritage Hills came to be 8 years ago as 'Heritage Hills Horseback Riding' where we did just that - lots of horseback riding with guided horseback rides for the public! We still do a few limited public trail rides and, of course, have horses and ponies on the property, but we do so much more: * Wagon rides in summer & sleigh rides in winter. * Horse camps for kids and adults every Friday in the summer. * We are certified in the EAGALA model of equine assisted psychotherapy along with a learning technique with horses called Horse Powered Reading.

The Homestead
Joni & Phil we’re perfect hosts and there property was just beautiful! So comfortable. Met us upon arrival, guided us back to our site and made sure we got settled in and had everything we needed. Fun conversation! We look forward to checking in with them again next time we’re headed through upper peninsula Michigan!

I loved the site, private, close to water and portapotty. Joni & Phil were so thoughtful and helpful. Joni gave me a brief intro tour of the trails and showed me a couple historical details, the trail I was looking for, and told me about the bike race through the trails during my stay. When my grandchildren came, they were able to explore the trails and pet the horses - absolutely a hit with everyone! Thanks so much!! Looking forward to coming next year!

Great hipcamp. Electric site is difficult to get travel trailer backed in. But being secluded is worth it. See you next year Joni and Phil

Camping at old golf course with hor
Easy directions, nice pull thru spot. ATT had good phone service. Verizon calls and text only. My only suggestion would be to have the grass cut more often. It was a rainy stay so it did not dry out as fast as it could have. Also be ready to pack out your garbage. But overall a very nice stay.

Starry nights!
The Homestead was peaceful and very relaxing! We felt very safe leaving our camper during the day so we could hike around the U. P. Nights were full of starry skies and even a few deer who wondered not far from our camp. Thx for hosting!!

They replied right away for last minute camping plans on my end, and were super helpful and friendly. Thankful to have enjoyed a beautiful quiet night here with my dog. It was also really easy to get to and park with a little beat up Honda.

Great Mountain Biking
Had a great time at Joni and Phil’s place. We stayed 3 day and covered a lot of mountain biking trails right off of their land. Nice, quiet camping experience with the added bonus of watching the horses.

A lovely secluded property with lots of privacy between campsites. Easy access to water and toilet. Laid back atmosphere, well cared for horses on the property. Star gazing was great. Our dogs had a blast running through the field playing. Great communication with host.

Lovely hipcamp!
Absolutely love tent camping here, this is our second time camping at the horse farm. We stayed out at Midway meadows and the first time homestead, both locations are close to the toilet. We were busy this trip and didn't spend as much time with the horses and around the property, but it's still really tranquil.

Tent camping.
The campsite was really nice. We had some shade which was also nice. Having a picnic table and a fire ring. The port a potty was nice and clean and not far from are campsite. There was no where to throw are trash out but we made it work by taking it out with us. It great camping area, close to town if you needed anything and not to far from Marquette and the lakes to go and do things if the weather is not nice. We plan to go back next summer! Phil and Joni where really nice and helpful.

We enjoyed our stay at Heritage Hills. We were greeted warmly by our hosts (and the horses and happy pups), and then shown to our site. It was private, quiet and peaceful. And we were thrilled to learn that the mountain bike trails passed through nearby, so our morning ride plan was simplified. Clean porta potties and a great price. I would definitely stay again!

We made a last minute booking and arrived very late in the night, but despite being late, Joni & Phil kindly gave us all the directions for finding our allocated campsite. The campground is lovely and the children were delighted to meet the horses in the morning. I would absolutely recommend this campsite!

This is a nice large and fairly secluded camping spot. This particular site is at the end of a mostly unimproved trail but I pulled a small travel trailer back to the spot with my pickup without any problems. Spot is on the edge of a field so it makes for good star gazing. The hosts were super nice and seemed to really care about providing a good experience. Next time I am up their way, I'll be sure to go back for another stay.

RAMBA Camping🤙🏼
To be honest, we were originally intending on camping in Marquette, but could not find anything there for this weekend due to a large annual music festival. Such a happy accident because we decided to make the best of it, found Joni & Phil’s listing, had no clue we were camping literally in the RAMBA trail system and had a blast. Phil greeted us initially and was an excellent host in taking care of us and making sure we had a great stay. Love the privacy of the sites and the land is just beautiful. Would love to see a simple shower/bathhouse setup in the future…this is a really special place with huge potential considering it’s location!

Perfect Spot!
Phil and Joni are wonderful hosts! It is a beautiful, secluded spot close to the trails. The port a potty was clean, and we had a fire ring and a picnic table at our site. The sites are very spacious and spread out. Would definitely book again!

Great spot to camp! Joni & Phil have a nice property, and the sites they offer all seem great. I really liked this spot, Hole 1-The Greens for being convenient to get to, yet also felt secluded. It's just a short walk to the porta potty, which was kept clean. It's a working horse farm with dogs and horses, which is another great perk. And Joni & Phil were both very nice and accommodating. I'd definitely stay again!

Staying with the horses
We really enjoyed our stay at the horse ranch Joni and Phill are very nice people easy to get along with and pleasant to talk with they have a beautiful area with a lot of trails and availabilities to bring your own horse but we do not have one the site that we stayed had a 30 amp plug which is very convenient and water was close by I highly recommend staying here.

Quiet and beautiful property. Nestled five mins away from downtown Ishpeming and 25 mins away from downtown Marquette. Joni and Phil were very kind. They take care of their horses every morning and let them out to graze. Was a nice surprise to see the horses forty feet from camp doing their thing. Only downside was no where to dump trash. Would come back again.

Space to run/play, or enjoy quiet!
My family and I loved the space/privacy of the site. Also, a bonus is the trails which abut to the camp property.

Hole 1 is a roomy spot with a mix of shade and sun, near the outhouse. We had a fun time and are looking forward to visiting again.
