About Barnes Park Campground

picture_198_1.jpg The campground is located near US31 between Elk Rapids and Charlevoix both offer many one-of-a-kind shops, art galleries and world class dining. Both towns have harbors with docks, boat launches and marinas. There are many lakes nearby to fish in, the Chain of Lakes, Lake Michigan and Jordan River (a great place to canoe). Torch Lake, National Geographic pick for 3rd cleanest lake in the world is less than a mile from Barnes Park and they have a DNR public boat launch. There are many farm markets and golf courses nearby. Mackinac Island could be a day trip with a scenic ferry ride to the island. If you like hiking, biking, bird watching and enjoying scenic beauty there are many Natural Areas in our area to explore.
