The Dune Bluff Site is $50.00/night, the other 4 sites $40.00/nightI have 6 sites.
4 near my hilltop barn and 1 on the of the bluff summit overlooking Lake Michigan, Point Betsie and the entire Betsie watershed.
Walking distance to Lake Michigan bluffs and over 200 acres of Green Point Conservancy for endless forest hikes to shoreline beach. There is also a public parking spot and stairs to Lake Michigan beach (camp fires on beach are allowed). The property has the perfect balance of deep woodland privacy while being perched high with sparse views of Betsie Bay and Frankfort. Also a mix of hardwoods and open sun lit meadows depending on tent site preference. Biking distance to the Village of Elberta for local restaurants, bar and farmers market. Also across the Bay to Downtown Frankfort. I'm working on an on-site organic garden, spring water fed. A barn converted into a studio is in renovation for extra equipment storage/staging or for larger group indoor dinners for those rainy days. Plenty of ideal parking for your car at your personal tent site.

The vibe at Elberta Dune Forest Retreat
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Excellent location for enjoying Elberta and all the region has to offer. The site was quiet (some road noise from MI-22, but that was ok), and a wonderful spot for viewing the Perseid meteor shower. We had a pleasant hike on property with our dog (off leash) and appreciated being so close to so much to do; kayaking, biking, beaches, nature preserves, and good coffee at the Conundrum Cafe. Also, a fairly short and very scenic drive to Empire and the Sleeping Bear Dunes area. Robert is an attentive host; we appreciated his off-the-grid dwelling project and plans for developing the property. Great place to stay if you don't mind roughing it a bit!
