There are so many things to do in Silver Lake and West Michigan that your family will keep coming back for generations.

This is the nicest campsite we have ever stayed at! It is clean, well maintained, friendly staff, family-friendly, and close to great amenities. It also has a great pool and activities for kids, an ice cream shop on-site and a very nice camp store. You’re basically glamping if you stay here!!
