Welcome to Lakeview Family Campground

A Place to Reflect on Life’s Journey with God

Everyone is welcome at Lakeview Family Campground. You’re surrounded by trees in a quiet and secluded campground, on beautiful 249-acre, all-sport Townline Lake in Montcalm County. It’s an easy drive from Grand Rapids, Mt. Pleasant and Big Rapids. With electric and water-hookups for RVs, plenty of room for tenters, plus several cabins, it’s easy to see why campers return year after year for a relaxing escape. Enjoy swimming, fishing, hiking, boating, biking and sports. Established over 60 years ago, this peaceful, family-friendly campground welcomes families and friends to renew, refocus and reconnect in Christian fellowship surrounded by natural beauty.

Lakeview Campground is a special place for family vacations, church groups, reunions, day camps and weddings.  Your group will love our spacious group camping areas — perfect for fellowship around a large central campfire bowl. Boating and fishing enthusiasts alike enjoy our boat launch with docks. The fishing is great and you’ll love our fish-cleaning station. Relax by the beach and build sand castles or go swimming. When you’re not on the water you can enjoy basketball, horseshoes, volleyball or Frisbee golf. We have beautiful wooded trails for hiking or biking as well as a serene prayer garden and sermons by the lake on Sunday mornings. There are many local festivals and activities to enjoy during the summer. If you are looking for that peaceful setting of woods and water and enjoy the natural beauty that God has blessed us with, this is the place to be. Open from May 1 through October 15.

Thank You for a Life-Changing Summer

August 28, 2019

 Nearly 1100 summer campers met Christ in the woods, at...

  • "Cool stuff for kids to do. Nice and clean, well maintained facility."


  • "'Heaven,' that is my friend’s one word description after arriving, unpacking, checking out the restrooms/showers and dinner. It is beautiful here! As we arrived a young deer greeted us. Last night’s sunset was phenomenal. Currently a bald eagle is sitting a top a tree next to the lake watching for a fish."


  • "Beautiful campground. Great to have lots of fun or just relax."


  • "I have been camping here most of my life and love it more now than ever! Great staff that is willing to help whenever they can! Free boat, kayak, paddle board and tube rentals for campers. Great fishing docks, boat launches, pavilions and park down at the beach. Awesome place to bring your kids!"


  • "Great place, quiet, a lot to do, and the fishing in Townline Lake is outstanding. Very clean, and great people."


  • "This was our first time at Lakeview Campground and what a most enjoyable, peaceful weekend! Plenty to do for the kids from putt-putt, swings, train ride, volleyball, recreation area for the kids, etc. Very nice Beach area with chairs, turbo chute, paddle boats, kayaks and more! Owners, staff are amazing! Very accommodating, friendly!
    Thank you for the most enjoyable Weekend! Looking forward to Fall Extravaganza with my kids and grandsons!"


  • “HUGE thumbs up for this place and the view of the lake at sunset was to die for!”

    First-time Camper

  • A wonderful place to spend time with family and friends! God works through this place every day. I've seen this place shape people's lives and bring so many people together. Clean, great service, a beautiful lake, fun, and full of God... what more could you ask for?


  • “We have been coming here for 37 years and love it. Reasonable rates, nice shady sites, family friendly lake and easy access.”

    Repeat Camper

  • Great family environment! Lots to do. Very well set up for large groups.


  • We had an awesome time camping. Had lots of family activities. Including the movie under the pavilion.


  • Lakeview is the perfect place for a family camping trip. The campsites are all nice and shady with water and electricity. There's a playground near the beach in a nice shady spot. The beach is perfect for families. There's enough sand for the kids to play in, but there's a lot of grass that makes it easy to walk on and set up while staying cooler than just sand. They have boats, kayaks, tubes, and life jackets to use for free for campers! We love Lakeview!


  • “Staff is awesome and have their sights set on what makes for family-friendly camping. Recommend it to all. Invite others to come and enjoy fellowship.”


  • Love this campground. Wooded with fairly good sized sites. Restrooms are always clean.
