Welcome to Camp Deer Trails!

Our family-owned and operated camp is located in the heart of mid-Michigan, just 90 minutes north of Lansing. We offer a true outdoor, “Up North” adventure on our expansive 140-acre property. Whether you prefer a lakeside campsite or one of our historic cabins, or are looking to host your wedding or event with us, we have something for everyone.

If you’re looking to disconnect from the outside world and relax in nature, you’ll love spending time at Camp Deer Trails. Our camp offers a wide range of activities to keep you entertained during your stay. Take a stroll on our nature trails, go fishing, boating or swimming in the all-sports lake, or simply relax on the beach.

Life is better at the lake, and we can’t wait to have you become a part of the Camp Deer Trails family!
