Your first bundle of firewood is free!  Stay just three miles off of I-75 where you can pitch your tent or park your small trailer on our private 40 acres in beautiful Northern Michigan.  Two secluded tent sites are available.  A short walk along a wooded trail will take you to the river's edge where you can enjoy the beauty and wildlife along the West Branch of the Sturgeon River.  It will feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere, yet the convenience of the small town of Vanderbilt is just three miles away.  Also just a few miles away you can go for a swim at Thumb Lake Park or take a bike ride along the North Central State Trail.  The larger town of Gaylord is only a 15 minute drive south, and drive 15 minutes north you can canoe or kayak the main branch of the Sturgeon River in Wolverine.  There are many great hiking trails in the Pigeon River State Forest and the North Country National Scenic Trail is only 6 miles away.  Or, just stay put and hike the 1 mile loop around our property, stopping to rest along the river's edge.

This site was perfect and private. Just what we were looking for. Fun trails for the kids and we enjoyed finding frogs and crayfish by the river. Highly recommend!

We finally found a campsite with privacy, woods, and remoteness! Previously we spent all our camping time at state parks, which are too cookie-cutter for our tastes. I liked the low firepit, the site was flat and clean, ample shade, and the wood was sorted from kindling to logs! Would definitely camp here again!

The toilet was an interesting experience, but it worked!
