Lake Michigan Campground Site Map

When you want Lake Michigan to be your playground in the Upper Peninsula Michigan, consider Lake Michigan Campground. Dunes, waves, sand and wind, are the primary environmental factors present here. Campsites are nestled in the sand dunes that can reach heights of 30-feet tall . Over the sand dunes you'll find miles of sand beach. Hike ancient dunes, ride the waves, or soak in spectacular sunsets. View a printable or interactive map of Lake Michigan Campground.
