Centrally located to several attractions! Leetsville trail is just a stones throw away for all your ORV pleasures. Manistee river, just 15 mins away is a slow meandering river. Great for a lazy day floating on a tube, kayaking and canoeing. The infamous Torch Lake is about 25 mins away with it's Caribbean blue waters along with the beaches of Lake Michigan. Traverse City and Gaylord are 35 mins away and historic Grayling is about 25 mins away. The mighty Mackinaw Bridge is just 50 mins away. Visit the quaint Mackinaw Island and pick up some famous fudge! So many things to do and see!! There are 4 sites, each secluded, on 15 acres of woods and open land. Easy access to each site. Wake up to fresh eggs with an endless supply from my beautiful ladies. When in season, fresh vegetables from the garden will also be available. Access to water and camping restroom

Great spot! Definitely Chill AF 😂
Jakie was a great host. She allowed us to fill our water tank, provided fire wood (and even have us some extra!), and walked us back to the camp site. The setting was nice, quiet, and secluded... exactly what we were looking for. We winter camped, but I'm sure it would be a great place to stay during the warmer months as well. Would visit again!

This property is beautiful! Plenty of privacy at this site. Little to no light pollution so the stars are fantastic at night. Jackie was very accommodating and kind. Would highly recommend this spot to anyone!

Great host, great campsite!
Had a fantastic, although short, overnight at Jackie's Star Child site. Even though my itinerary meant I arrived very late (11pm?), Jackie met me and led me back to the site and showed me where everything was. Nice fire ring and privy at the site. Heard coyotes around midnight and again very close at about 2:30, then when I first got out of the tent at dawn, there was one standing about 25 yards checking me out! Didn't have time to reach back in for the phone to take a picture before she turned and padded off down one of the trails. What a perfect way to start the day! I broke camp and headed about half an hour north to backpack the NCT/Jordan Valley Pathway. Thought I left a section of tent pole behind (I didn't, just hid it on myself while packing up) and Jackie graciously took the time to go out to the site and see if she could spot it. Looks like there are lots of mowed trails on Jackie's property for walking, and I did see some fresh bear scat too!
