Description

Don’t let the name discourage you. Everywhere in the UP has mosquitoes this time of year. I am just not accustomed to seeing this many. The road is very remote and you can camp anywhere along it. This is a small clearing and overlooks a wetland. Very quiet and no people. Access is by fire road. You take the utility easement. 653 north off rt. 28 first left is the easement/road.

room for one spot high clearance vehicle recommended

Report Check-In

Bumpy and sandy road in - could turn sticky in wet weather but we were fine with 2WD at a dry time. We didn’t go all the way to the coordinates listed but stayed in an open grassy area at the first right turn. Saw one truck leaving from the direction of this particular spot in the morning but no other traffic. Weak Verizon signal in and out

Report Check-In

Very beautiful, no people. A little tricky to get to. We followed the gps in the app towards the site and went to the right with the recommendation of going past the site about a thousand feet. The road ended and opened up into the circular flat site. It has a very primitive fire ring, but people should bring big stones to put around to enclose the ring. There were ALOT of mosquitoes, but we made a fire sprayed ourselves with cutter and lit a citronella I sense and they were better. We were in a roof top tent on a jeep and made it in ok, but there is no way aeven a small motor home could get here. There is a lot of overgrowth on the trail.

Report Check-In

Had to pull back some branches to get here in my Sprinter. Very sucluded.

Report Check-In

We followed very narrow, long winding lanes in our Sprinter van without difficulty. We continued past the coordinate, maybe 1000 feet to a smaller circle campsite with a fire pit. Very private, view of a boggy pond. Lovely

Don’t count on this place.
I won’t say it doesn’t exist, but my GPS got Uber confused and I wound up deep in the National Forest. Luckily my Blazer is a badass and we got through it.

Right now I’m camped on the waterfront in Munising and it’s great! I’m sure there’s other parking spots in the National Forest, but I was approaching sunset and didn’t have time to go hunt.
