Camping with Easy Access to Pine River
The ¼ mile path to the Pine River is lined with towering trees - hardwood and conifer that escaped the logger's saws a century ago. Stepping stones provide a dry crossing of the spring-fed creek that makes its way to the Pine. Be sure to check out the ancient riverbed 20 vertical feet above the present riverbed. You'll find your pace quicken and it will become futile to hold back the smile as the river appears before you.....just too much fun to be had wiggling your toes in the sand, hunting for Petoskey stones, indulging in a refreshing swim, etc. ....bring a towel, some snacks, and a fun-meter!! These two young campers had some off-the-charts fun hunting for and finding these Petoskey Stones in the river at the end of the PRPC Campground Deer Trail to the River.
“ I wanted to tell you that your campground is the best campground that I've stayed at and I've camped across the country several times. I have also used your canoe service three times in the last two years. Great outfit!”
