MUNISING - We have changed to a reservation system for ALL drive-in campsites at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. All campsites (including disability accessible sites) now require a reservation throughout the year. There is no drop-in camping.


Camping fees are $20 per night during Peak season 
(May 1 through October 31).
Camping fees are $15 per night during Non-Peak season 
(November 1 through April 30).

Drinking water is not available during Non-Peak season and campground roads are not plowed for snow removal. Access to drive-in campgrounds in winter is generally by snowmobile. (Before winter camping, check with the visitor center for current conditions: 906-387-3700.)

Drive-in camping reservations can be made up to 6 months in advance. To make a reservation go to
www.recreation.gov(or call 1-877-444-6777. International callers: 1-518-885-3635.)
1. Once on www.recreation.gov, log into an existing account or sign up for a new account.
2. Type Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in the search window.
3. Click on the first search result: Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
4. In the next window, scroll down to Attractions. Click on the campground you are interested in. Follow the prompts from there.


Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore has three rustic drive-in camgrounds: Little Beaver (8 sites), Hurricane River (21 sites) and Twelvemile Beach (36 sites). Campgrounds do not have electric, water, or sewer hookups. Campsites provide a picnic table, fire ring with grill grate, and tent pad. The campgrounds have vault toilets and well water. The water is turned off in the campgrounds during the second half of October - the date is dependent on the weather. Typically there is no cell phone reception.
