Great site with beautiful trees, soft pine forest bed, easy fire pit area and clear & thoughtful host! Don’t forget the bug spray! Quiet site, not far at all from St Ignace and Lake Michigan.

Nice spot to camp. Beautiful trees and close to everything we wanted to do. Nice lake to swim in. Quite neighbors that are also nice. Didnt see to many animals but lots of slugs. Heard a couple owls at night. Just a wonderful place to stay. Make sure you take the bug spray.

Very nice secluded site. Beautiful pine forest. No facilities on site, but very peaceful and quite. We only stayed one night on our way further into the UP, but i would like yo come back for a longer trip to exploer the area more.

It was quiet, dark, and private at this site. We had a great time enjoying the nature and the great sunrise down the street!

This campsite was everything we expected and above. We had trouble understanding the details of campsite’s location, however, the host was kind enough to explain every bit of the information.

Would definitely stay again here next time we are in the UP, especially if David does the improvements that he plans to make it easier to get in and out with an RV. Nice quiet spot
