The campsites on the Rapid River/Manistique Ranger District are located on inland lakes and are in a rustic forest environment with few, if any amenities. The rustic environment offers a wonderfully serene and peaceful setting for your next campout
Three primitive campsites are located on the 53 acre East Lake. East Lake has fishing for largemouth bass, perch, bluegill and bullheads. There is no drinking water at this location. Site #1 is a wooded area on a hill overlooking the lake. The site is 100 ft. by 75 ft. and is suitable for three families. It is on the west side of the lake. A primitive toilet is at this site. Site #2 is a small wooded site on the northeast side of the lake. It is approximately 45 ft. by 35 ft. and would be suitable for one family. The access road is narrow and winding but can be traversed by small trailers. A primitive toilet is located at this site. Site #3 is on an open point of land that extends into the lake. It is 55 ft. by 50 ft. and is suitable for one family. Trailers are not recommended due to the very narrow winding road. Swimming at site #3 is excellent but is not recommended at sites #1 or #2. A boat access is located just past site #1. It is unimproved, shallow and sandy. Carry-in access is recommended. Gasoline, groceries, fishing and camping supplies, boat rentals, ice and MDNR licenses are available at Steuben, approximately two miles northwest, on County Road 437 Lake Name Number of Sites Maximum number of people per site Toilets Boat Access Lake Size (acres) East Lake 3 Site 1 (24) Sites 2 and 3 (8) Yes Back In 53
There are a number of horse, bike, and hiking trails within minutes of several of the sites. In over a mile from these campsites, visitors can expect to find: bait shops, general and grocery stores, gas, a pay phone, trailheads, a fishing pier, biking, and kayak/canoe rentals.
All of these sites are nestled in hardwood trees and pines. All of them are on small inland lakes, which offer a wide variety of fishing opportunities. There is one exception; Camp Cook, which is close to the Fishdam River and provides opportunities for good brook trout fishing.
Visitors will be able to enjoy swimming, berry picking, and fishing at these dispersed campsites. Licenses are required for fishing in Michigan waters. Some of these campsites offer only one site on these inland lakes allowing for a very peaceful and wilderness-like experience.

What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
