Unfortunately the host did not follow the hipcamp rule about toilet facilities, and I wanted to let others know and ask the host to fix this issue.

I booked a site for a campground that stated it had a porta-potty for campers to use. However, what was provided was not covid safe and was frankly quite disgusting. It was a toilet seat with a plastic bin underneath, and the bin was lined with a garbage bag. I understood that campers were supposed to take their own garbage bag of human waste with them each time they used the restroom. There was no instructions where to dispose of the waste, and of course the bags could leak if you place them in your vehicle. This is highly unsanitary and definitely not covid safe. My uncle and I who were traveling together were both deeply uncomfortable with this and so were not able to stay at the campsite. Also, we've both camped for decades and have never seen anything like this.

Since this prevented us from camping there, I requested a refund from the host and hope that they fulfill it.

Other than this issue, the site looked nice with a good view, though the dock for lack access had tents set up on it, so you wouldn't be able to access the lake unless you went to the public campground about a 1/4 mile away. That's where we ended up camping, as they had an actual porta-potty.

Kellie is a generous person. But honestly would not recommend this place to anyone. We did not even stay at this place once we found out that it was in someones front yard, not my idea of camping.

It was unfortunately the worst camp site I have ever been. It was completely wet and we were unable to find a proper place to pull up our tent. We just made some adjustments and passed the night some how. I would definitely NOT recommend this to anyone, unless you do not find any site elsewhere.

Kellie was a great host for our short stay. She sent plenty of directions ahead of time and answered my questions in a timely matter. When we pulled up, she met us outside and gave us a tour around. There’s one campsite that is relatively private compared to the others, and we chose that one. Unfortunately, it is lower ground and it had been raining all week (she warned us of this ahead of time), so we did experience the mud...and there was a lot of it. I am certain if it hadn’t been raining so much it would have made a huge difference. If you are looking for a space to enjoy with friends or don't mind camping pretty close to others, and the weather has been clear, this is a great quiet place to stay. It sounds like Kellie has done a lot of work on the land this summer but the beach is not quite accessible yet. Cute dock, and you can get in off the end of the dock, but there IS a lot of tall grass so walking into the lake wasn’t much of an option. Not a huge issue because it wasn’t very hot while we were around, but we would have appreciated that being included in the pictures so we knew what to expect. Mobile coverage was plentiful, if that’s a concern.

Kellie was so welcoming and helpful. She had tours available and was happy to answer any questions. Definitely bring a tarp for under your tent because ground is a bit wet. The views of Lake Michigan were great and the dock for use is cool too. It was a great location for exploring central UP. Thanks Kellie! We will come back again soon!

My friends and I were struggling to find a campsite for the night as everything in the UP was booked when we came across Kellie’s site on here. Really cool piece of land very close to the lake that can accommodate numerous groups of campers at once. It was exactly what we needed for the night before we got back on the road. Thanks!

This was a cool site! Very close to the lake, but the car camping options were slightly limited by the driveway that follows the parking spot.
