There is a boat ramp nearby if you bring your own boat and plenty of room for your boat by our long pier.

South Manistique Lake is well known for walleye, perch, northern pike, tiger musky, bass (large and small mouth), and a large supply of panfish.

After a good day of enjoying the water, you might like to sit by the waterfront and enjoy the sunset or around the campfire in our lakeside fire pit.
