I loved the campsite , I was the only one there, except for The host family that lived up the hill away from the site.
I walked down the hill found a flat spot by the spring fed creek that let out the Muskegon river “very nice”.
I took my longboard along so I could board the bike trail that is right next to the property. The small town Hersey is 2.2 miles away which has a restaurant/ bar, gas station , and limited groceries.
There is fresh water and electricity up by the house they let me use to plug my stuff in.
There is a bench along the Muskegon river with a canopy that is nice for sitting.
If you arrive via a car keep in mind a big hill you will have to carry your gear down and back up. “Not a big deal for me but I can see where some might have a problem.
I had a great experience and will be back

If you arrive by car, take note, you have to carry ALL of your gear down a pretty big hill, and back up. I’d rate it as7 out of 10
Very happy Doriath SpringsView from the bike trail

Thanks for the kind review David! I love the spot you camped in and I'm glad you enjoyed it too. Thanks for pointing out the hill to the creek and river; important information for folks packing lots of gear or with mobility issues. There are more easily accessible parts of the yard on the bluff, near the little library and in the pines. We plan to make the land more accessible to everyone as soon as we can. Welcome home anytime!
