CAMPING
Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area
State campground; just around the corner.  PLEASE NOTE that camping may not be available in late winter... I inquired and the DNR said camping opens April 28th (but the DNR is often unreliable with info like that so please check in advance).

Highland State Recreation Area
Another state campground; just around a different corner.  PLEASE NOTE that camping may not be available in late winter.  I inquired and the DNR said that the beach campground opens May 5th, and the Lake Macapawa Pines campground opens April 1st (but the DNR is often unreliable with info like that so please check in advance).

Proud Lake State Recreation Area
The Huron River runs through Proud Lake State Rec Area, and it offers a number of lodging options.  There's camping, mini camping cabins, and, for groups, River Hawk Lodge (sleeps 24).  There are alluring pics of the mini cabins and River hawk Lodge here (scroll down to see the pics).  If someone wants to rent Riverhawk Lodge and make space open to others, I'll help let people know.

Brendel Lake Campground
Private campground a few miles away.  PLEASE NOTE that camping may not be available in late winter... contact them for their open date.

CABINS
Highland State Recreation Area ~ Bass Lake Lodge
Highland State Recreation area has a cabin available for rental, which sleeps 6 and has a kitchen and bathroom.  I'd advise booking as early as possible to ensure availability.  If someone wanted to rent this and wanted me to let other participants know so they could split the costs, I'd be happy to.
