Portage Bay Campground

10 miles south of Garden on Co Road 483; Portage Bay Road,
Garden, MI 49835
Portage Bay is one of Michigan's hidden treasures. Because it's part of the state forest system, it's less developed and less promoted than state parks. Its 23 large, rustic campsites ($10/night) are in mature pines just behind low dunes from a wonderfully natural, quiet sandy cove on the east side of the Garden Peninsula. Two beautiful hiking loops are interpreted with info on plants used in traditional Ojibwa life. See Points of Interest for details on its trails. Coming here is ample reward for giving up easy access and hot showers. This campground fills on summer holiday weekends and some other times in August. A few weekend sites are usually available.
