Elk Hill Equestrian State Forest & Trail Camp
This peaceful wooded equestrian campground is located along a bluff overlooking the majestic Pigeon River. It is shaded by hardwoods within the Pigeon River State Forest and is available to Equestrian campers. There are 11 sites, six of which will accommodate a 40-ft vehicle. Sites four and 11 are "buddy" sites, allowing two camping units on one of the sites, when both are rented. Only one camping unit is allowed on all other sites. Each site has a fire ring and picket posts. Campground amenities include vault toilets, water from well hand pump, an accessible mounting block and manure bunker. All 11 sites can be reserved through the reservation system. Reservations must be made at least 72 hours in advance.
The state forest campground is a stop along the Shore-to-Shore Trail, a 420-mile trail system open to hiking and horseback riding, that stretches east-west from Empire to Oscoda with two additional northern and southern spur trails. The Michigan Trail Riders Association assists with maintenance of the trail.
This campground is in Otsego County, 14 miles east of Vanderbilt via Sturgeon Valley Road, Twin Lakes Road and Osmun Road
