I am an avid tent camper with over 35 years experience from the most primitive sites, to ones with every amenity available.
I have always preferred to camp on public land ( ie State Parks) as I didnt want the added expense and hassle of dealing with privately owned 'campgrounds'. I always immediately thought, " everyone is stuffed in on top of each other"!! and " the whoop it up till 3 am crowd"!! !
When the State 'reconfigured' some of the sites at the park my wife and I stayed at, ( 'our' site was reconfigured out of existence) we decided to see what other campgrounds were available in the area. Its been 4 years now and I wish we had done it sooner!
TeePee Campground is one of the most relaxing, enjoyable and friendly campgrounds I have ever stayed at. The view of the Bridge, Straits and M.I. are second to none!
I personally have stayed there for over a month of days now and have never had any bad experiences with either the staff or with the cleanliness of the facilities.
The grounds are well maintained, recently vacated sites fire pits are cleared of excess ashes, any litter is picked up and the grass cut.
The sites are good sized and level. They are close to each other but not crowded together. They have dedicated sites that work well for the biggest buses and others for popups and tents.
The owners understand what customer service really means. I've always been impressed by how much they really do care!!
The free shuttle to the boat docks and the nightly bonfire on the beach top off a prefect atmosphere.
We are booked for July again this year and we will be coming back for many more!!
