Michigan Camping at its Best

We operate a very clean and quiet private campground. If pitching a tent isn't your idea of fun, check out our quaint and comfortable Camping Cabin. We also have a gorgeous Pine River Vacation Rental home right on the banks of the Pine.

“Thanks again for providing us with such a fantastic base camp for our annual dads and kids Pine River weekend. The kids moped around Monday AM while getting ready for school grumbling that they didn't understand why they couldn't still be camping. Maybe we'll have to add a September rafting trip too! You really have a special place up there!” Best regards, Rob K. - Toledo, Ohio

Climbing Wall Fun

Our campground is home of the Wow Wall, a 32 foot tall, super-safe, automatic-belay rock climbing wall.

Adventure Store

Our Adventure Store is stocked with camping and river trip essentials, UpNorth clothing, souvenirs and gift items.

Miles of Great Trails

To help our guests enjoy the myriad of trails in the surrounding Manistee National Forest and Pere Marquette State Forest, we rent comfortable, user-friendly Specialized Mountain Bikes.


Walker Bridge Canoe Livery

The Pine River’s Best Kept Secret, our Walker Bridge Canoe Livery is located on the upper river, 11 miles southeast of our PRPC Office. Walker Bridge Canoe Livery is the only Pine River Rental located on the river’s edge, which means more convenience and more affordable rentals for our guests. Off the beaten path, this gorgeous stretch of river is less traveled, shallower, and very family-friendly. Enjoy our large, private landing for some swimming, picnicking, frisbee, volleyball, etc. after your river trip.

Come enjoy Pure Michigan Fun!

PRPC was selected by AAA Members in Michigan Living Magazine as one of Michigan's Hidden Treasures.
