Overview

Overview

The sparkling Marion Lake offers breathtaking and exciting camping for your next family trip. Live it up on the water with your jet skis or wake board, or tone down the pace with a full day of fishing. The Marion Lake Group Site is an ideal way to spend time with friends and family for all the water activities you can imagine.

Marion Lake is in the Ottawa National Forest, a protected area in the western upper peninsula of Michigan. It stretches from the Lake Superior shoreline to the Wisconsin border, and attracts deer and many types of migrating birds.

Natural Features:

The campground is in a large, grassy field surrounded by hemlock and hardwood trees with an opening to Marion Lake. The altitude is 1,627 feet, with lightly rolling hills stretched between the many other lakes in the area.

Recreation:

A swim beach that's ideal for small kids is adjacent to the group site. Make sandcastles or splash around in the gently sloping edges of the lake.

Facilities:

A convenient path leads to the lake and boat launch. Water is not available on-site, but is a short walk away.

Nearby Attractions:

Hiking enthusiasts will find scenic trails throughout the Sylvania Wilderness area, a region to the west with old-growth forests and 34 lakes. On the way, stop by the visitor center in Watersmeet for some interesting exhibits.
