A visit to Camp Tosebo is a true up north in the Michigan woods experience!
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Camp Tosebo is owned and operated by a group of friends and family that love northern Michigan and its natural beauty. We purchased the Camp to preserve its historic value, placing the majority of the property in a conservation easement to insure that this special place will be enjoyed by generations to come. Several of us live on the property and enjoy getting to meet and befriend our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Manistee, MI, USA:
Our group has had family ties to Portage Lake and Camp Tosebo for over 50 years. One of our owners was a Tosebo camper 'back in the day', and leads our effort to preserve camp artifacts and the history of our special place. Camp Tosebo continues to weave it's magic with the many guests that return again and again with their family and friends. We hope to welcome you and yours to the Tosebo clan!
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Come prepared to relax! With its charm and 'back in time' ambiance, you will experience the same feeling that we got when we first walked through these well preserved historic homes and beautiful northern Michigan forest trails. A short stroll through historic Red Park takes you to our sandy beach on the fresh clear waters of Portage Lake. Lake Michigan is accessed easily by a short boat ride through the channel, or a short drive to nearby public beaches. We are active people and enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, hiking, mushrooming, gardening, and socializing. If this sounds like you, you'll love Camp Tosebo!
