Rolling hills, dense pine forest, flowing streams–no need to pinch yourself, this place is fo’ real. Seaton Creek Campground is just a short walk away from Seaton Creek where brown and brook trout are likely to be swimming about and trail access to the 23-mile loop Manistee River Trail. Shallow water shuns canoeing on the Seaton Creek. Instead, Huckleberry Finn it up and take a journey down the creek bed and keep a keen eye out for outlaws–er, crawfish.

This little gem of a campground is nicely tucked away in the Manistee National Forest. It is clean and comfortable with nice large sites. The best thing is that you can hop right on the Manistee River Trail and hike along the east side of the Manistee River for about 10 miles. If you cross the bridge to the other side you can take the North Country Trail back to a foot bridge and arrive right back at the campground. It's gorgeous 20 mile hike.

This is a great place to keep your car while you backpack the Manistee River Loop. Unfortunately, the Loop itself has become really crowded -- it's best to go during the week.

Waterfalls! (well, Michigan waterfalls)Stopping for lunch on the east side of the river, overlooking the cliffs.We made it! Crossing the suspension bridge on day 3 in the rain.We made it! Day 3, crossing the suspension bridge in the rain.
