Pitch your tent, set up your trailer (no electricity), or dry camp and enjoy the peace and beauty of the country. Our farm boasts of being family friendly by providing a kid friendly play area, picnic tables, fire pits, and fresh vegetables to pick (in season). Site 1, 2 and 3 are along the wood line, provide shade and are near one another (not to close though). We're in the country but close to all the amenities. Four beaches on beautiful Lake Huron within 10-15 minutes, canoe and kayak rentals nearby, a dog park and walking/biking trail within 2 miles. Staying with us you have your choice of staying in a wooded area or out in the grassy field.

While you're here you can enjoy your day at any one of the wonderful things this blue water community has to offer, pick fresh vegetables from our almost 2 acre garden, or just sit and relax. In the evening enjoy yourselves sitting around the fire. We have wood available for purchase. Sit back and enjoy the sounds of nature while the fire flies glow about and you have a clear view of a star filled sky. You can visit bluewater.org and see all the amenities in the area.

Our vegetables are all started by organic seed and we use all natural practices, no harsh chemicals, in their care. Farm fresh eggs laid daily by happy, healthy hens and fresh honey is available from our neighbors.

Water is available by spigot and hose; porta-potty near the barn. We also have an open pit fire grill available to rent with a $20 deposit & $5/night.

Wi-fi available near the barn.

Michele was very friendly and helpful. Because I was camping with family living in different places, we ended up changing the specifics of our reservation a few times and she was totally fine with that. We also arrived very late because we left after work and Michele was totally good with that.

The campsites were very spacious, had a nice fire pit and seating. The place was easy to find. There was a bit of Friday night road noise but it didn't go very late. One thing I will say is that it had rained recently and so there were many mosquitos so pack bug spray if it has rained recently.

We were in town for a family reunion taking place at a different location so didn't spend a lot of time at the site here. It served us well and we're grateful to Michele for her hospitality and helpfulness!

Thank you Garrett. I try to be accommodating as much as possible. I don't want our guests to feel stressed and when plans change I know how that can be. So glad you enjoyed yourselves on your trip.

10 out of 10 - absolutely recommend

When we pulled up and saw how close to the house the campsites were, I have to admit we were slightly skeptical. However, Michele and her family were such wonderful hosts that we felt equally welcome and secluded. The area was MASSIVE and incredibly clean, with a cool little trail into the woods. There was enough tree coverage to stay shaded in some part of camp through most of the day, while still leaving a huge open sky for stargazing at night. We were there over the 4th of July, and the family did their own little display of fireworks that was EVERYTHING you could ask for in a big city display- but super private. They invited us up front to watch with them, but we had such an excellent view from our site that we decided to stay around our campfire and watch. Really close to multiple boat and kayak launches, as well as many local beaches. Groceries, gas, liquor stores, and several restaurants within 5 minute drive.

10 out of 10 - would ABSOLUTELY recommend.

Thank you Kari! I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay. We try very hard to give our campers their privacy while still trying to be welcoming to all who visit. It was great hosting you and I appreciate that the area was left all cleaned up. Would be glad to have you back any time!

I had a lovely stay. The 3 shady sites are along the wood's edge of this working farm. The tall grasses make for great habitat for birds, rabbits, and fireflies. The sites are dry, breezy and level with a picnic table, glider chair, and fire ring. Water from the spigot was delicious. Nice woods to explore. I didnt get a visit from the cat, but made friends with the 2 sweet dogs. I got a dozen gorgeous eggs from the neighbor.
