Our family moved from Metro Detroit area here to Mecosta in 2019 in search of a more fulfilling life. We have found just that with this beautiful property and in our homesteading and campground adventure. We were drawn to a calming and grounding energy in these trees; a feeling echoed by many who visit here. We expect you'll leave here feeling inspired and rejuvenated. Learn more about this land: Come enjoy 30 private acres of rolling forest with lots of Beech and Oak trees. We have two community camping areas, each large enough for up to 20 people. We also have a few more intimate spots for complete seclusion. These spots are suitable for about 4-6 people.  All rustic camping.  Toilets and handwashing stations on site. Extra vehicles, trailers, etc. can be parked in our gravel lot.   Ice and firewood available for sale on site.   The land borders 6000 acres of public wilderness including Martiny Chain of Lakes. Lots of hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, and river floating nearby. Feel free to ask us anytime before or during your stay for our favorite spots, or if we can offer our services to help accommodate any special off-site trips you'd like to plan. As your host, we strive to provide a "home away from home" feel when you visit.    We have a small hobby farm up front by the house, where you're welcome to come visit our goats and chickens. They are the friendliest goats you'll ever meet!   We often have farm fresh eggs for sale and may have other various items available to rent.  Such as a generator, shade tent, river tubes or a canoe.   Need anything to make your stay more enjoyable?  Just ask!

Camping at Moss n Mushroom was awesome. The land is beautiful! It was a drizzly fall weekend which meant that mushrooms were flushing in spades. I’m not skilled in foraging, but it was gorgeous to see. Sarah and Justin were lovely. The outdoor shower was a particular delight - hot and refreshing on a cool, wet day. I’ll definitely be back.

Great Forest Getaway 🙂
We had a great time. Most of the sites have a nice amount of privacy. The forest is great, hardwoods and shade 😎. My daughter had a great time finding little tree frogs and salamanders. There are so many types of mushrooms around, we even saw some bioluminescent ones, neat! The hosts are really nice and made the stay enjoyable.

The land was beautifully cared for and the tent was absolutely lovely. They even added a birthday banner because I told them I was surprising someone, the intentionality of the whole experience was so wonderful. Would recommend and revisit!

Private, clean sites, charming camp
Moss N' Mushroom has lots of space to offer with plenty of space and privacy between numerous sights. The sites were clean, and well groomed, and they are generous with the firewood that is available as an additional purchase. Toilet and showering facilities were also very clean. They also have several places where you can socialize with campers at other sites if that is what you are looking for, but there is also plenty of privacy if solitude is what you are after. This property is also close to many recreational activities on water and land, so if you want to explore away from the campground, there's plenty of opportunity. I can't recommend Moss N' Mushroom campground highly enough. 10/10

Beautiful & Quiet Camping Site
Our family of 4 had a great weekend camping trip at Moss & Mushrooms. We asked for a site with trees for our teens' hammocks and they upgraded us to a group site which was SO spacious and lovely. We had lots of rain but there was no puddling or pooling on our campsite. The $10 for a load of wood we bought lasted us for 3 days. The hand washing stations near the port-o-potties were so convenient, and the bathroom was very clean. We enjoyed petting the goats through the gate and wandering the trails. The other campers - who relatively far from us - were all friendly. This was our first camping experience through HipCamp and we were very happy that we found Justin & Sara's spot. We hope to go back.

GLAMPING DONE RIGHT!
The hosts of this campground are unmatched, they are so sweet! I loved how clean their forest was & also how private & secluded our site was. It was so nice listening to the birds chirp as I woke up in the morning, it was the nature reset I truly needed without any of the work to set up and tear down. The tent itself looked brand new! It was decorated so cute with rugs, twinkle lights, and a real bed! It was so cozy and I slept so good. Glamping at its finest! I’ll definitely be back for another visit!

Perfect place for a weekend getaway
They have beautiful land and sites! They are more private and secluded like my husband & I enjoy. Although it was short, it was such a great experience! They are a lovely family and it is so wonderful to see the animals and enjoy the nature, with a moment of stillness and quiet.

A fantastic overall experience!
We loved tent camping at Moss n' Mushrooms. The Hosts, Justin and Sarah (and their two adorable daughters) could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. When we arrived, the entire family welcomed us and helped us find our site. The sites are tucked away within the trees, offering good privacy. Justin checked in with us once a day to make sure we had what we needed. We also learned how his family found themselves on this land, the events they run, and their focus on building an amazing community around them. A few things we did while staying there: Kayaking on the Chippewa River, stargazing/night photography, walking the property (lots of cool things scattered all over), and a delicious breakfast at KJ's.

This place is wonderful!
This was such a great spot to camp. They really put in the effort to make it a great place- the trails and maps were fun and the actual campsite are beautiful and spacious. I loved that there were common areas too like the hammocks (no one else was there when we were though). They give you plenty of fire wood and were so welcoming. We got caught in a huge storm in the morning and they let us stay past checkout to get all of our stuff packed up too. The bathroom was super nice and my dog looooved the goats. I plan to come back again!

My husband and I had a fantastic weekend with a very clean, shaded, and semi-secluded campsite. Sarah and Justin were both very kind and provided great directions and suggested a day at Tubbs Lake which was exactly what we were looking for a nice swim! We definitely plan on taking another weekend trip here!

Fantastic Site!
The site we were given was absolutely stunning! We had 6 of us total, and 2 dogs. We had absolute privacy, which was perfect because the dogs have lots of anxiety. Justin was very responsive and flexible as my plans did change a few times. (Had a possibility of 8 people camping total). The porta potty was very clean. The hammock circle on site was one of the coolest features. The shower on site is pretty cool and very warm! I would say, the rules are pretty strict here. I had no service, so one of the people joining me didn't get my text with instructions to check in. When he passed the check in, the host tried to flag him down. The member of my party thought it was a friendly wave. They were then followed to the campsite and scolded pretty harshly. There wasn't much kindness or understanding for the mixup in the moment. We are a rule following bunch. As a result most of us felt nervous coming/going from the campsite after, or even exploring the site beyond our spot.

The site was large, private and had tons of shade. We loved all the fun quirky signs and personal touches throughout the camp. A lot of creative additions and touches that really made it feel special. Justin and his wife were very kind and welcoming and were quick to respond to anything we needed. Gave us some great tips on where to kayak for the day. Would definitely recommend and would stay again in a heartbeat.

The site is amazing! The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. You could walk around the land and enjoy. Bathroom and hand washing stations on site. Beaches nearby. Fresh eggs on site which helped save room in our cooler when we packed. Justin and his wife and kids were very nice, accommodating, friendly, and helpful. Would definitely recommend as a great weekend getaway.

Loved our time here. Justin, Sara and Mike were very attentive and responsive. They made sure we had everything we needed. Very clean bathroom which was really nice. Loved the convenience of being able to buy ice and firewood on site. The land is beautiful and we loved the goats, chickens and dog. The site we were at was very private and we felt very comfortable there. Would recommend.

This place is fantastic! 5 stars for sure. Yes, it’s rustic meaning no water to connect to no sewer hookups, no electricity so you have to manage that. The property is well maintained and has large gorgeous sites that feel very secluded and very private. There are only a few sites available but they are all special. I cannot think of a single bad thing about this place but you do have to properly prepare for any rustic camping experience. In addition they give you a starter pile of firewood. They have games that you can play, goats and chickens to look at and most of all a fantastic outdoor shower with on demand hot water. It was awesome. Thanks again Justin, Sarah and Mike you are are gracious hosts. Mike, I did not use any of the you stacked for me. I pulled from the pile. I will return.

These sites were absolutely beautiful!! Justin and his family were sooo welcoming and helpful. There was so much to do throughout the property, like hammocks and swingsets!!! We were the only campers last night so Justin moved the porta potty closer to our site! It was very clean and the trails and nature were amazing!! The goats, chickens, and very friendly and wise dog Buddy were spectacular. All of the campsites had fire pits and he even let us choose which one we wanted to camp at! The decision was very hard considering they were all beautiful with a lot of privacy. We will definitely be coming back again to check out the other sites!!
