This is a not to miss destination right of of !-75 north of Grayling, MI. Your hike takes you through an old growth forest with a replica logging camp right along the trails. Awesome scenery.

A great place to camp. The ONLY down grading is the lack of a beach or swimming. There are 2 trout ponds within walking distance to the campground
