OHV Camping

Camping is not permitted at trailheads.  There are two ORV campgrounds, with trailheads located in the campground - Mack Lake and Meadows located on the Huron portion of the Forest. 

Mack Lake Campground is situated on a 175-acre lake, surrounded by rolling jack pine plains and is a good location for wildlife viewing. The campground is primarily used by ORV trail riders. There are 42 single, first-come, first-served campsites that will fit trailers and/or RV's that are 25 feet in length or less. The campground has drinking water, lake access and a trailhead for the Mack Lake trail.

Meadows Campground is a small, 16 single site area primarily used by OHV riders and is first-come, first-served. The sites accomodate trailers/RV's up to 25 feet in length. The campground has drinking water and a trailhead for the Meadows Trail.
