All of them are on small inland lakes, which offer a wide variety of fishing opportunities. 

There is NO drinking water at the site. Drinking water must be carried in. Water is available at Pete's Lake Campground.

There is a pit toilet available.

Natural Features

Ewing Point is a beautiful walk-in campsite located on the north side of the 132-acre McKeever Lake. The grassy site is 50 ft x 75 ft, surrounded by hemlock and cedar.


Visitors will be able to enjoy swimming, berry picking, and fishing at these dispersed campsites. Licenses are required for fishing in Michigan waters.

Bruno's Run Hiking Trail weaves throughout the Ewing Point area, offering 9 miles of adventure for hikers. The trail is accessible at various locations, two of which are near the Ewing Point parking area. One section of the trail leads to Grassy Lake, while the other heads along the southeastern portion of McKeever Lake.
McKeever Lake offers great fishing for musky, pike, bass and pan fish, and there is boat access in the parking area. Boats must be carried to the site by hand or through the water. Because the water is quite shallow, large boats are not recommended.

The lake bottom is sandy and provides good wading opportunities. Be cautious when swimming because this area has not ben checked for possible hazards - swimming is at your own risk.
