Our campsite is nestled in mixed northern hardwoods and conifers with over a dozen species of trees around the camp area. The site is graced by a large old Oak tree and many larger Maple and Birch making it a well shaded site and protected from wind. A wildlife pond is near the tent sites which hosts frogs and turtles and an occasional passing beaver, otter or muskrat. Deer and Turkey are frequently seen and the area is on migration pathways for Raptures and many songbirds. The site is a few hundred feet from the Northwest corner of Farmers Block Road and is an ideal base camp for biking, hiking, paddling and fishing adventures in Keweenaw County. Only one mile from Lake Superior and the Gratiot River - many outdoor activities are easily accessible. Additional flat tent site undeveloped are close to the site if you have a larger group and need more tent pads let us know and we will try to accomodate you.2 generous tent pads are located within the site with cedar bark mulch bases capable of holding one large and one medium sized tent. The fire ring, picnic table and cooking shelf are within 50 feet of the tent pads and parking is available for 2-3 vehicles within 30 feet of the tent pads. The tent sites are well shaded and not visible from the main road.

Sylvan Pond Camp
Beautiful quiet spot and easy to find. There was water and a bundle of firewood ready for us to use. The toilet was very very clean and newly built. Wonderful stop on our journey across the UP.

Beautiful campsite in the woods
Awesome area to camp for a few days. Beautiful area in the woods that's a close enough drive to the lakeshore. Raymond was nice enough to leave us water to use. We had no issues and I'd recommend this location to anyone looking to get away in the UP.
