Great Lakes, great times, great people. That’s your trip to North Manitou Island Group Campground in a nutshell! Why go north instead of south Manitou you ask? At North Manitou, there is an unlimited number of sites available, as long as your group is a max of 10 people. Once you’re settled in with up to 20 of your best buds, rest up for an epic day of playing king of the hill at the infamous Dune Climb. Surely there’s a bunch of other stuff you can do here—hike, bike, hang out at the beach, fire up some s’mores—but nothing beats the splendor of climbing a mountain of sand.
