Great spot to stop for the evening when driving through the UP - just over the Mackinaw Bridge. Kellie was an awesome host and came by to check on us multiple times, with pet friends in toe.. :) there were many other campers staying at the site but everyone was very respectful of social distancing and keeping noise to a minimum. Some sogginess because of rain the previous night, but that’s to be expected.

This was a cute little place to stay right next to lake MI. There is a nice old rustic doc just a 3 minute walk down the road. Kellie was very welcoming and helpful with recommendations. There was a little bit of mud by one of the fire pits due to the recent high rains, but there is plenty of higher ground to set up camp. I just put down a tarp under my tent and it was totally fine. It's part of camping outdoors. I also met some other really cool Hipcampers and we all shared a fireplace together. It was a great experience. Thanks Kellie.

The Mountain Magic is conveniently situated by the Scenic Hwy with a charming straight shot view of Lake Michigan. Our host was extremely attentive and helpful. We were given recommendations of things to do in the area and were provided with essential updates during our stay. Within a short walk from the property there's an access to the dock where you can spend a peaceful morning or enjoy a night of stargazing where light pollution is almost nonexistent. If you truly enjoy outdoor simplicity your camping experience will be definitely a pleasant one.

The entire campgrounds were completely under water. Definitely do not recommend this site unless you want to stay in a marsh where it is near impossible to set up camp. We also thought this campsite was private. However, other campers arrived at 3a.m. If you are not going to require a check in time, then you should inform other campers so that they are aware that people will be coming and going. We were miserable and did not feel safe so we left early.

The address provided took us to the house next door when we arrived. When we finally found the campsite, there was another three campsites we were unaware about at the same location. The ground was muddy and was marshy and wet. It rained the same night and in the morning it was covered with puddles and inundated with water. It’s a great place to hear lake Michigan’s waves lap, and had an amazing view of the water. I would stay here again only if it is dry the days leading up to the stay.

Absolutely 100% would recommend. Was lucky enough to find this location when EVERY campground in the UP was full, and at a bargain price! Plenty of space, beautiful area, great location(only a half hour outside of St. Ignace. Kelly was very helpful and communicative, and we felt very welcome. Will definitely stay again in the future!

A million words couldn’t explain the fantastic experience we’ve had here! I’ll be back next year, without a doubt. The ground of the camp is soft, but it’s no marsh. Finding higher ground for our tent was no problem. The view of the bay from the campground is spectacular and it’s only a short drive to a beautiful sand dune beach on Lake Michigan. Kellie has firewood for sale at the top of her property and a brown shed with visitor pamphlets for all kind of attractions in the area. She also has a HUGE tent and a cute camper you can rent from her. There is a small creek running along the edge of the grounds that comes from an artesian well that is beautiful to listen to at night and a dock just a short walk down the street that you can sit on to watch the sunrise/sunset. Above everything else, if you don’t take the time to have a conversation with Kellie or her friend Juan, you’ll have made a huge mistake! These are some of the most genuinely kindhearted and entirely interesting people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. I’ll recommend this spot to everyone for years to come! Thank you!

Such a cool experience!! After struggling to find a site at several state parks we happened upon Kellie’s Camp. It was truly a rustic, outdoors experience, which is what we came for!! Instead of being surrounded by trees and dirt and families we did not want to bother, we were camped out in an open field surrounded by the bay and the forrest. It was perfect for stargazing. Yes, there might be people pitched up down the grass, but it was so fun meeting all the cool types of people who also found the site and swapping drinks and stories by the campfire. It’s about 15-20 minutes from town so there’s little to no light pollution!!! Kellie and Juan were the coolest people ever!!!! As long as you are prepared for camping, not glamping, you will love it here. Check the weather for clear skies and bring a tarp, after all you are outside, can’t blame the weather on the amazing host!!! Can’t wait to come back next year :)
