Campground There are also three large assembly areas for horses and hikers which consist of parking lot, tethering area, water well, and vault toilets. One such area is located at the south trail head, one at the Alger-Delta County Line and one along the north side of Highway M-94. These areas are also suitable for camping. The middle assembly area is better suited for camping than the others because of its large space and quiet location off of County Road 509. While water is available at the parking areas, it is suggested that you carry a drinking water supply with you. In order to be safe, all drinking water should be boiled or disinfected with Halazone.
