About Martha Wickett-Schrock

Camp Tosebo is owned and operated by a group of friends and family that love northern Michigan and its natural beauty. We purchased the Camp to preserve its historic value, placing the majority of the property in a conservation easement to insure that this special place will be enjoyed by generations to come. Several of us live on the property and enjoy getting to meet and befriend our guests.

Martha Wickett-Schrock purchased this lodge in 2004

Why Martha Wickett-Schrock chose Onekama

Our group has had family ties to Portage Lake and Camp Tosebo for over 50 years. One of our owners was a Tosebo camper 'back in the day', and leads our effort to preserve camp artifacts and the history of our special place. Camp Tosebo continues to weave it's magic with the many guests that return again and again with their family and friends. We hope to welcome you and yours to the Tosebo clan!

What makes this lodge unique

Come prepared to relax! With its charm and 'back in time' ambiance, you will experience the same feeling that we got when we first walked through these well preserved historic homes and beautiful northern Michigan forest trails. A short stroll through historic Red Park takes you to our sandy beach on the fresh clear waters of Portage Lake. Lake Michigan is accessed easily by a short boat ride through the channel, or a short drive to nearby public beaches. We are active people and enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, hiking, mushrooming, gardening, and socializing. If this sounds like you, you'll love Camp Tosebo!

The Trunk House is My Favorite Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love staying at the Trunk House. We have stayed there at least twice during each spring and summer for the last ten years. The Trunk House is comfortable and restful. I sleep better at the Trunk House than anywhere but my own house.

Great place for a family reunion or gathering of friends!

  • 5 of 5

We've spent lots of time at this property. Camp Tosebo is a wonderful place with hiking trails, fire pit, tennis and basketball 'up the hill' and a wonderful private beach. The Clubhouse has a big, well appointed kitchen (and grills) and we've spent many wonderful hours gathered at the picnic tables outside or in the big dining area inside. It comes equipped with games and nice sitting areas in front of the fireplace or on the wicker furniture in the library. The bedrooms (many have ensuite bathrooms) are comfortable and cozy. The memories of time spent with friends at Camp Tosebo are some of our favorite parts of summer.
