Deatrick's Camp 440 Rental Cabin is located just west of FFH 13 on West Branch Lake in the Hiawatha National Forest in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Camp 440 is conveniently located only 20 minutes south of the Wetmore/Munising area and about 15 minutes north of Nahma Junction on Highway US-2 for easy access to many of the wonderful attractions and recreational opportunities in the area.
Camp 440 has a complete kitchen with full-sized appliances, microwave, coffee maker, and cookware. Laundry area with washer and dryer.
Camp 440 has two-bedrooms with 1 & 1/2 baths. One bedroom is furnished with a queen sized bed and the other bedroom has a full-size bed. There is an additional bunk bed sleeping area and a futon in the living room so the cottage will sleep up to 8 guests or is perfect for a couple. Linens, towels, and paper products are provided.
West Branch Lake has a sand bottom beach by the dock that is perfect for the children. They will have a great time in the water so bring your beach toys and spend some time floating on your raft. There is a pontoon boat and a paddle boat included for wonderful adventures on the water. 1 tank of gas is provided with pontoon – additional gas at renters expense.
Take an evening cruise around the lake or try your luck fishing for dinner. You can bring your own boat as the lake is large enough for water sports and there is a boat ramp that is located by the cottage. There is a sitting porch with outdoor seating and a fire pit for evening campfires.
Enjoy all the wonderful recreational opportunities in the area with over 200 nearby inland lakes for fishing, and public forest land for canoeing, hiking, biking, hunting, and ORVing on the many trails.
There is excellent fishing in Big Bay de Noc on Lake Michigan just south of Camp 440.

The Pictured Rocks can also be viewed from the Pictured Rocks Cruise or check out the sunken ships in Munising from the Shipwreck Tour in the Glass-bottomed Boat. Visit Grand Island for a day hiking or biking. Bikes can be rented at the Ferry Dock. There is also a bus tour of the island for those who would like to ride through the island wilderness.
