"The Crows Nest" is such a wonderful property! Ben is a caring host and has provided a stunning Leelanau escape. There is plenty of space for numerous tents (and options as to where you want to set up your tents). We had a group of 5 of us - three tents plus a food tent. A new metal fire ring was provided which made campfires for relaxing and cooking convenient and easy. A porta potty is located on the property which was a luxury compared to many sites.
The road it is located on is very quiet - only a handful of cars each evening. Minimal light pollution allows for great stargazing.
It's the perfect location for a hideaway and is centrally located to get to many wineries, villages, etc. with just a 10-20 minute drive.
Go enjoy the dunes, lakes, and great food and drinks of Leelanau and relax your evenings away in this wonderfully situated property.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Crow's Nest. Brian was very helpful and responsive to texts. There were two sites on the property- ours was tucked away up a hill behind the tree lines. It was really quiet and beautiful. Close 5 minute drive to Leland. The place was exactly as described! Reminder no amenities aside from a fire ring- so just know that and come prepared! Thanks, Brian!

Ben has a great spot for us to camp! He was extremely welcoming and helpful. He respected our space/privacy completely, but was also a pleasure to hang out with when we invited him to join us. Look forward to staying here again when I visit the area.

It was great! There are a few sites and we were closer to the road, but it was pretty quiet overall.

The Crow’s Nest was peaceful, easy to get to, close to most of our destinations, safe, and secluded enough without being deep into the woods. We definitely enjoyed our camping experience. Thank you, Ben and family for letting us stay at your campsite!
