ELY LAKE CAMPGROUND

Added by allegancounty

2 reviews

Located within the Allegan State Game Area, Ely Lake Campground offers a quality camping experience that is located close to town but has a definite backcountry feel. Ely Lake contains 73 primitive campsites (16 of which are open to equestrian camping), vault toilets, and a swimming beach on Ely Lake. You will also find DNR Public Access sites to both Ely and Little Tom Lakes. (Ely has a “no motor” rule, so bring your canoe or row boat!) Ely is open year round, so come out and enjoy some fabulous fall or winter camping! Ely also has several trails for hiking and cross-country skiing.

Campground is much better than four years ago. Still Lake Ely to swim, canoe and swim in. Still Little Tom Lake to canoe and fish in. Great hiking trails to take up your day. Real life back woods where you can truly enjoy the outdoors. Yes bug spray and citronella. This is the forest.

Here twice in two years and both times horrific. How bad? During first 2012 stay loud partying until 2 a.m.(f-bombs, loud music and cutting trees at midnight) culminating in a several police cars converging on the campsite next to me looking for drug felons (who'd left minutes before). Second a repeat with campers returning from bars at 12a.m. - 1 a.m. and firing up music, loud dogs and what ever the he%% they wanted until after 2 a.m. Here the no alcohol, no fireworks and 10 p.m. quiet times are a joke. This is where Allegans finest go to party the night away with seeming indiscretion.
