Overview

Overview

Monument Campground was established in 1909 as one of the first campgrounds built in the Huron National Forest. The campground is a fully accessible camping area within a red pine plantation.

Families love this conveniently located campsite, just 15 minutes from Lake Huron off the River Road National Scenic Byway.

Natural Features:

Each site is secluded and shaded with large oak and red pine near the AuSable River. The river flows from west to east for 138 miles until it reaches the great lake, Lake Huron.

Recreation:

Campers can access the Highbanks Hiking Trail from the campground or explore the 22-mile River Road National Scenic Byway that overlooks the lovely AuSable River valley.

Beside the campground is the Lumberman's Monument Visitor Center, replete with information about the area's rich lumbering history. Here, visitors can climb through a log jam, use a peavey, cut a wooden cookie with a cross-cut saw, and learn about the life of a lumberjack through video and displays.

Facilities:

Pressurized drinking water, vault toilets, trash collection and grills are among the amenities offered at the campground. A host is onsite to answer questions and sell firewood.

In the nearby visitor center, campers can partake in educational programs and browse through the gift shop.

Nearby Attractions:

Explore the many trails of the Huron-Manistee National Forests and spend time at Lake Huron.
