Campgrounds

The Best Private Campgrounds in Michigan!

Scenic, peaceful campgrounds provide a welcoming retreat for families, individuals and groups to escape the daily grind. Bring your tent or RV, or reserve one of our family cabins. Once you come, you’ll be back year after year!

Splash at the beach, go fishing, play on the playground or just watch the sun set over the lake. Take time away with your family and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation in a faith environment that is safe and family friendly.

Pavilions and gathering spaces available for group meals and worship.
