Meinert Park offers 67 campsites overlooking Lake Michigan and the Little Flower Creek. The inland Montague Township Park provides a quiet place for baseball games, picnics and family activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We spent a few wonderful days here and hate to leave. The kids loved the beach, fishing on Stony Lake, the hammock and the bridge. Mom and Dad enjoyed the view with a relaxing drink after the kids were tucked in their beds. Speaking of beds, our daughter (4) loved the princess bed! Thanks gain for sharing your beautiful home with us.
