If you truly like wilderness camping deep in the UP this is the perfect spot for you.  Just 20 minutes from Marquette, and 30 minutes to Munising.  Totally isolated 5 acres in the woods. Fire pit available, very rustic outhouse. Nestled in hemlocks and other conifers. Beautiful in autumn. This location is just outside of Marquette county. With no current address available because of location. Some of the  photos on here are of my home area, and camping is no longer allowed in this area. I do not want to break any ordinances, laws or zoning in my area so I have changed it to my other land in the UP Just a short drive from my home area.   You can enjoy my photos on here of my past campers that I was lucky to share with on my lake property.  The  new camping area does not have a lake, but there are plenty of areas to enjoy the water.  I will supply plenty of information about the area and things to do. Just message me if you have any questions.

Judy was the best host we could ask for! She shared fresh wild blueberrys with us, provided us with fire making materials and smore sticks, zipped our tent up for us when it started to rain, let us use the shower and her wifi, provided local recommendations, and offered use of her canoe and kayak. You couldnt have asked for a better view. The lake was beautiful and at night you could see ever star in the sky including the milky way. 5 stars, phenomenal value for money, and would highly recommend. Thanks so much Judy!😊

We loved staying on Judy's amazing slice of heaven! She had the perfect setup for an intimate camping stay. We loved the walkway that led right to the lake, where she has a kayak available for use. The lake was so much fun to explore; even our dog had a blast out on it! There is plenty of nice flat area perfect for pitching tents and the fire ring is actually an awesome transplanted piece of the host's childhood! We loved getting to chat with Judy and she gave us some awesome tips for cool things to see in the area.

The outhouse is tucked in the trees and is clean and perfectly maintainedSunset kayaking on the quiet lake was perfect!The walkway to the lakeThe driveway to the campsite makes for a relaxing beautiful hike

Judy was an amazing host! She went out of her way to give my husband a comfortable place to camp on her beautiful property. Our dog enjoyed her stay as well. This location is lovely and wooded with a stunning lake right there. We hope to come back someday. 10/10

Incredible private site in deepwood

What a wonderful opportunity and place this is! It is a very small, private spot on several acres of deep woodlands that feel like they go on forever. There is a firespot, a table and chairs, and an outhouse. Judy is a wonderful hostess. The drive to the site is a bit rocky; you might want not to do this in a tiny car. Our CR-V did it just fine.
