    A few miles southwest of Traverse City, this can be a nice place to camp, but if you want privacy and solitude, go during the off-season (May-June, September-October). Otherwise, because of its proximity to TC, the place will be probably be full and not as quiet as it deserves to be. There are lots of nice sites along the shore of the lake, which is a beautiful little inland lake, and a nesting spot for loons. But it lacks privacy from your neighbors and can be really busy during the peak summer months.
