Our campsite area is set up on a unique mini North Woods mesa with a striking view of the surrounding rolling hills and the Big Lake. We have three cleared campsites, a ten-foot wooden platform, and a sturdy rock fire ring. The nearby road sees less than ten cars on an average day, and there is no other audible activity for miles around. This is an ideal spot if you are looking for both easy access and a quiet, serene location. 

If you are adventurous and bring a good map of the area, you can find excellent terrain for hiking, climbing, and backcountry skiing right from the campsite. (There are no marked trails in the area, just gorgeous, enticing hills...)

Cool spot, off a seldom traveled road w good access to lots of north shore highlights. Trail access and such could be better developed but the place has lots of potential.

We loved the private seclusion of this campsite.It was very rustic, and we loved the privacy this beautiful place gave us. The tent platform is perfect for setting up a nice level campsite, and the view it overlooked is breathtaking! there are signs up pointing out where things are located which was very helpful. It was so fun to explore the woods and look at all the diverse plants and trees. The nearby turnoff road was a perfect parking place for our van for the evening

It's great to have a dog friendly location!The platform was perfect for setting up a nice level tentThere was plenty of firewood availableNice signage is on the land pointing out the way to hike

Gorgeous campsite- the views were stunning, and the campsite was nice and secluded away from the road. Very peaceful, and we'll happily go back again!

One note about finding the campsite- the side road that you can park on is actually on the OPPOSITE side of the main road from the trailhead leading to the campground. Took us a bit to figure that out, since there are also a couple trailheads that appear to lead away from the parking area at the bottom of the hill. So, if you park at the bottom of the hill, walk back up to the main road and then across it and west about 100 feet and you'll see the sign leading back into the trees!
