Camp inside our private backyard! 1 mile to Belle Isle & 2 miles to Downtown Detroit. WiFi, electricity, bathroom, shower & kitchen available!

An open camp site inside our private fence-enclosed backyard. We're located 1 mile to Belle Isle and 2 miles to Downtown Detroit. WiFi included and electricity available upon request (via extension cord). Indoor showers/bathrooms available.

This is a semi-private camp-site located in the backyard of our house. It's relatively peaceful & quite so we think you'll find it more private than some other places in the Detroit area.
