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
