Michigan Family Camping Activities
Camping in Michigan is different than year-round camping elsewhere in the United States. Our campers enjoy a wide variety of activities Spring, Summer and Fall, right within our family-friendly campground, plus we are located close to some favorite attractions in Southeastern Michigan.
New in 2016! RC Field of Dreams – Dirt RC Race Track Open to campers and registered guests. Free to use, bring your own RC vehicles. RC Fans rejoice – this race course features tight turns and big jumps. Join us on RC RACE WEEKENDS to win a GrandPrix Trophy and enter the many competitions designed for racers of all ages. RC WEEKEND is completed with Boat Races and Drone Zone. Spectators are welcome.
A skilled bird handler (Craig Perdue) visits on select weekends to give an up-close experience learning about a variety of birds and how they survive in the wild. See our calendar for Bird Show dates, there are several opportunities to catch this unique show in 2016. Meet Clancy the Macaw, Rupert the Great Horned Owl, Glory the Harris’ Hawk and more!
Meet our Llamas – proud animals who have their own personality! Many children love watching them in the field near the back of the campground. Get some ‘llama gold’ from the camp store and you can have them eating out of the palm of your hand! Home of the Llamapalooza! An annual Spring event that gives you the opportunity to walk a llama and get to know them close up.
You may fish for small mouth bass and bluegill in our man-made ponds; fishing is catch-and-release only. We have fishing derbies on select weekends to see who can get the biggest fish. The largest bass caught so far was 22 inches long! Our man-made ponds are 10 to 25 feet deep, with the largest pond about 1 acre in size. Enjoy a kayak or paddle boat ride on this pond, but please remember that parents must sign them out and register at the camp office first and life jackets are required to use the boating equipment.
Our annual Camp Carnival feature Pebbles the Clown, who loves visiting with the children and showing them how to make balloon sculptures. Every weekend in 2016 has extra special activities, like our BIG FOOT WEEKEND, Country Hoedown, 2 RC Races and 3 Halloween Weekends featuring a Haunted House. See our Calendar to find out about upcoming local events and scheduled activities.
We care about our community and the people in it. Our outreach programs benefit local residents and Michigan through our Camping CAN Feed summer food drive and Haunted House Food Drives that benefit God’s Bread Basket of Tecumseh. 2 Poker Hikes that benefit the Michigan Nature Association and our first ever GREAT LAKES 5K TRAIL RUN that will benefit the Alliance for the Great Lakes. Please join us to help make these events a success!
