This is an old Boy Scout camp. We stayed in a cabin with two bunk beds. Price was right. Nice and quiet. The cabin was decent- had electric and a ceiling fan, but if you like privacy, bring some sheets and a few binder clips as none of the windows (or the door) had any type of window covering. Also know that the cabin doors do not lock. (originally used as cabin for kids, I understand why-so do not leave valuables) The cabins are VERY close to each other. Restrooms adequate. We didn't use the showers. Only one area for a picnic table and campfire for the entire cabin area. There are many 'unfinished' cabins left a while ago that give the area a ghost town feeling... It would be nice to see them built or torn down. We didn't venture around the camp as we were just there for sleeping, but it looks interesting. This camp could really be a cool place fixed up a little bit- I know there are tons of travelers looking for places close to Traverse City that will not cost an arm and a leg. It was much better than tent camping- I was glad to not have to deal with setting up a tent! We will most likely go again and will leave time to explore the entire camp next time. Very interesting place and I am glad we found it on HipCamp! Been coming to Traverse City my entire life and never heard of it!

It was a nice wooded and secluded feel on the beautiful property, but yet only a few minutes drive to town if we wanted.

The cottages at GOREC are a great venue for a weekend away. There are lots of outdoor amenities to enjoy (disc golf, hiking, etc.), and it’s nice to have a roof over your head in case of inclement weather, but still enjoy being immersed in the greater outdoors.

Bonus was the greeting each morning from a few neighborly does keeping an eye on us.
