Overview

Overview

Ewing Point is located on the beautiful, 132-acre McKeever Lake in the forests of Michigan. This spacious campground provides a rustic environment in a secluded setting.

Natural Features:

There is one walk-in campsite on Ewing Point, accessible by a primitive foot trail. The site lies in a grassy area, surrounded by cedar and hemlock.

Recreation:

Bruno's Run Hiking Trail weaves throughout the Ewing Point area, offering 9 miles of adventure for hikers. The trail is accessible at various locations, two of which are near the Ewing Point parking area. One section of the trail leads to Grassy Lake, while the other heads along the southeastern portion of McKeever Lake.

McKeever Lake offers great fishing for musky, pike, bass and pan fish, and there is boat access in the parking area. Boats must be carried to the site by hand or through the water. Because the water is quite shallow, large boats are not recommended.

Facilities:

The campsite is equipped with tables and a campfire ring with a grill. A lantern post and pit toilet are also available.
