Campground Camp: The drop-in camp is located on the shore of the Manistee River. It has a hand pumped well, and a well requiring a 5000 Watt generator. Canoe liveries sometimes use the horse camp for river access, so you may want to camp a distance from the river. The trail to the East (4-Mile) starts just past the outhouses on the end opposite the river. The trail West (Kalkaska) crosses the Manistee River. Found an easy Eastern ride from camp are dining facilities—one with a picket line; the other with a corral.
