Lake Michigan Recreation Area Campground— Manistee National Forest Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This campground is quite close to Lake Michigan, with trails leading out to the beach, and just north of Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area and its trail system. The inter- pretive trails tell of history and the ecology of the dunes. The sites are arranged in multiple small loops in the forest: Violet, Oak, Orchid, and Hemlock. Violet and Hemlock have running water. Violet and Oak are fee-free after October 8, and Hemlock and Orchid loops close September 15. Vehicle clearance is low, but the roads are paved. The sites are nicely shaded."
