Overview

Rollways Campground is located 7 miles from Hale, Michigan along the beautiful AuSable River. The site was built in 1909 as one of the first campgrounds established in Huron National Forest. The space is small and secluded and features an observation area, picnic grounds and log shelter..

The facility is located just off the River Road National Scenic Byway in northeast Lower Michigan. The byway showcases incredible views of the AuSable River Valley.

Natural Features:

Rollways is perched on a high bluff overlooking Loud Dam Pond on the AuSable River. The river flows from west to east for 138 miles until it reaches the great Lake Huron.

Recreation:

Hike on the accessible trail that connects the campground and picnic area to Westgate Scenic Overlook. Bring binoculars and a camera to take advantage of the epic view.

The same hiking path passes a stairway leading down to the river where visitors can fish and wade.

Facilities:

The campground offers 19 pull-through campsites with picnic tables, a lantern post, grills, tent pads and campfire rings. At the picnic area, a log shelter, picnic tables and grills are available.

Vault toilets and drinking water spigots are dispersed throughout the campground and all roads and camping spurs are paved.
