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.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Under Michigan’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” travel and business limitations our campgrounds are currently closed. Once these orders are lifted and new regulations are provided, we will  roll out new policies and procedures to keep guests and staff safe, and open as soon as possible.

It is likely that our two campgrounds will open on different days, so please check back for updates. Thank you for your patience and prayers during this challenging time.
