Located on Ambrose Lake with boating and fishing access, this campground offers rustic lake front camping plus direct access to about 9 miles of ATV trails that eventually connect to the Michigan Cross Country Cycle Trail.

The campground has about 19 primitive sites and most will accommodate a 40 foot vehicle/trailer. There are no RV hookups but the campground does have vault toilets and potable water from a hand pumped well. Sites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis only, with no reservations.
