Perfect for our needs -- comfortable, economical lodging, great location and helpful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice not to have to set up camp after our long drive to the UP -- it was all ready for us when we arrived. It also was great not to have to pack it up at the end of our stay. The tent with cots was very comfortable, and bathroom/shower facilities were very clean. The "camp kitchen" was stocked with cooking gear for our use -- it was so nice not to have to bring these items ourselves. Brian and Rebecca, our hosts, were wonderful -- friendly and extremely attentive, and so helpful as we planned outings for our 4-day stay. Also, the camp's location was central to our areas of interest. We would return without hesitation. Our only recommendation for improvement would be a screened-in dining tent and a hose for washing dishes. Thank you for providing such a wonderful and economical lodging option for our UP exploration vacation!
