State Forest Campgrounds

If you are looking for a rustic camping experience, with plenty of space between camp sites, the many Michigan state forest campgrounds are for you. 

Click here to search for State Forest Campgrounds, pathways, and State Parks or for a complete listing. Located throughout Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula  and Upper Peninsula, the state forest campgrounds provide over 3,000 campsites in the nearly 4-million acres of state forest. 

Every campground is located on a river or lake, providing excellent access to fishing, boating and canoeing. Over 60 campgrounds have nearby pathways for non-motorized trail recreation, such as hiking, biking, horseback riding and nature observation.  The campgrounds also are the base for other recreation opportunities including picnicking, mushroom gathering, berry picking, cross country skiing and hunting.

Accommodations range from 5 to 50 campsites, with group sites available. All campgrounds have vault toilets and potable water from hand pumps. Some sites are so remote they can only be reached by a determined hike through picturesque woods or by paddling down a scenic river course.

Below is a list of all Michigan State Forest Campgrounds.
