Just three miles off of I-75 you can pitch your tent or park your small trailer on our private 40 acres in beautiful Northern Michigan.  Two secluded campsites are available where you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods.  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.  You 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.  Go for a swim at Thumb Lake Park or take a bike ride along the North Central State Trail, both are only a few miles away.  The larger town of Gaylord is only a 15 minute drive south.   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.
