Surrounded by tall jack pines, the rustic campground is located adjacent to the Shore-to-Shore Trail, a 420-mile trail system open to hiking and horseback riding, that stretches east-west from Empire to Oscoda with two additional northern and southern spur trails.
The campground was designed to accommodate equestrian campers with 9 designated sites for tent and small trailer use. Amenities include vault toilets and potable water from well-hand pump. There is also a submersible pump that requires a 5000 watt generator. Sites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Call for availability.
There is also a group trail camp at this facility which has a maximum capacity for 40 individuals. Groups planning to use the trail camp will need to contact the managment unit. If the group will utilize multiple campgrounds along the Shore-to-Shore Trail, please contact the Cadillac Operations Service Center at 231-775-9727, ext. 6006.
This campground is maintained with the help of the Michigan Trail Riders Association.
