part ofHiawatha National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Closed through Wed May 14 2014   Season Dates
 

Overview

Brevoort Lake Campground stretches along the western shore of its namesake in the Hiawatha National Forest. This popular fishing destination is situated at a 420-foot elevation on a peninsula that juts into the lake and Beodne Bay.

Visitors to the campground enjoy the easy access to the pristine sandy beaches.

Natural Features:

The campground is sandwiched between Brevoort Lake and Lake Michigan. Campsites are somewhat secluded, surrounded by huge pine, juniper and oak trees and low, shrubby vegetation. Beach grass grows along the lake shore, sometimes buried in light sand.

Recreation:

The 4,233-acre Brevoort Lake provides ample opportunities for recreation. Boat access is available from the center of the campground on Boedne Bay.

In 1985, the Forest Service completed the construction of a walleye spawning reef in Brevoort Lake, providing plentiful fishing in the area. Anglers can also expect healthy populations of pike, bass, perch and a variety of other fish.

Hiking is also a popular pastime of visitors to the campground. The Ridge, Sand Dunes Cross Country and North Country National Scenic trails pass through the campground.

A 10-minute ferry ride to Mackinac Island makes for an interesting day trip. The 3.8-acre island offers hiking, biking, horseback riding and shopping, as well as access to historical sites and museums, among other activities.

Facilities:

The campground offers dozens of reservable single-family campsites for tent and RV camping. Additional sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills, and accessible flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

St. Ignace, Michigan, about 20 miles east of the campground, offers historical and tourist attractions as well as grocery and gas services.
