Matson's Big Manistee River Campground

Matson's Big Manistee River Campground

Located on the Big Manistee River & Borski Bayou, the campground and surrounding National Forest offer some of Michigan's best fishing, hunting, & camping. Walleye, pike, and bass fishing are excellent in the summer. Salmon start their run in the late summer peaking in the fall. The steelhead run starts in the early fall and continues through the winter well into spring, producing many daily limits. Wildlife and bird watching are favorite year-round activities for many campers here at the campground. The area offers some of the finest deer and turkey hunting in the state. If you enjoy summer activities, we are minutes from beautiful Lake Michigan and several challenging golf courses. For evening entertainment, the Little River Casino is 15 minutes away.
