The group area impresses with its beautiful scenery and convenient access to horseback riding and hiking on the Michigan Shore-to-Shore Horseback Riding and Hiking Trail. The spacious site holds up to 250 campers and features a day-use horse parking area.

Natural Features:

Campsites are situated in a stand of oak and pine at elevation 880 feet. The campground is adjacent to the South Branch River and is also not too far from the AuSable River. The magnificent Lake Huron is only a short drive east of the campground.

Recreation:

The trail begins in Empire near Lake Michigan, on the west side of Michigan and ends at Lake Huron on the eastern side of the state. The eastern part of the trail follows the historic AuSable River to its end in AuSable, just south of Oscoda.

Facilities:

Facilities include three sets of vault toilets, an electric water pump - which requires the group to furnish a 5,000 watt generator, one garbage bin and picket posts. Parking allows for up to 65 vehicles.
