• Our campsite will have toilet facilities, a fire ring, and drinking water.
• The campsite is very close to the river and within a short walking distance to the North Country Trail and Manistee River Trail.
• Dinner, breakfast, and water will be provided.
• With the exception of water filtration, a cooking system, and watercraft, bring all of your own camping gear (including dry bags).
