Nestled in Manistee National Forest is a family farm. Trailheads lead to hundreds of miles of public two-track, and the woods roll between oak/maple/beech and aspen/birch. On the farm is a 20 acre lake with a floating island, tent sites, and healthy ecosystems with plenty of wildlife.
Our farm pastures pigs, cattle, sheep and poultry, investing in our dirt and our neighbors. We are provision family farms because we provide for our animals even as we are provided for. Drop on in at the house and we may have time for a little tour.
In the woods is a small composting toilet, but you're welcome to fertilize our pastures anytime. There's also a shower available in the house.
The best time to visit Michigan forests is in October when the leaves turn color and the nights are cool. The mosquitoes are done for the winter and the air is brisk.

The vibe at Provision Family Farms

We had a great experience camping at Provision Family Farms. Our friendly host gave us a tour of the farm, introduced us to all the animals, and helped us get set up at our private camp in the woods with a view of the pond! The campsite was located in the back acreage (nice and quite, away from the road and other houses), with direct access to National Forest trails, a canoe to take out on the pond, and some basic amenities - like a fire pit with firewood, an old wire spool table, and tree stumps for sitting around the fire! Wish we could have stayed longer and will be back for sure. Thank you, Luke!
Loved our stay here. Perfect camp site with a view of the lake and the farm on the other side. Great to mix with the farm animals, met a family of piglets on our walk. Luke will tell you to camp or walk wherever you like. Great we could let our dog off the lead too. Purchased good bacon, sausage and eggs from our host. Didn't get to go on the lake but will do so next time. Planning another visit in the fall.
Very nice stay. Hosts made sure there was wood and accommodations where good. They made us feel at home on the farm. We were able to walk around and pet whatever animals we wanted. The family offered us fresh bread, watermelon, and chicken. Nice family and very private campsite. Not many bugs and direct access to the state park.
