Overview

Overview

Petes Lake Campground, located in the center of Michigan's Hiawatha National Forest, is surrounded by several lakes and offers excellent hiking, biking, fishing, boating and more.

Snuggled amongst mixed hardwood trees, the campground offers a swimming beach and day-use picnic area away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the upper peninsula of Michigan, on the shores of the 190-acre Petes Lake. It sits amid rolling hills that are forested with a variety of deciduous and conifer trees. Many of the campsites are shaded and private.

Recreation:

Visitors enjoy a variety of water-related recreation opportunities. The campground also has fishing pier next to the day-use area. Anglers can expect healthy populations of northern pike, bass, walleye and perch in the lake.

The nine-mile Bruno's Run Trail, which winds its way past a host of small lakes in the area, passes directly through the campground and is a popular trail for hiking and biking, as well as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter.

Facilities:

The campground offers multiple spacious and forested private campsites for tent and RV camping. A few sites overlook the lake.

Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings and about half of the sites have access to a grill. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

A shaded day-use picnic area at the campground offers multiple tables and benches right on the lake shore. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are also provided in the picnic area, as well as a fairly large parking area.

Nearby Attractions:

Big Island, Fish and Straits lakes are all within 25 miles of the campground.
