Closed for 2016
Due to our advancing age and the maintenance required to keep our little campground open + the cost of maintenance vs. the income generated by a small enterprise such as ours, we have decided to close this year to the general public. Perhaps we will open again in the future after we get caught up on work required to maintain a campground to the standards we feel are necessary to ensure an enjoyable northern Michigan experience.
Family and friends are still invited to join us and use our facilities.
Rainy River campground is located near Onaway in northern lower Michigan and is perfect for that 'up north camping experience'. Our Northern Michigan Campground is located 5 miles north of Onaway and consists of only three developed campsites. Situated within 16 acres of private & beautiful northern Michigan forest, surrounded on three sides by the Mackinaw State Forest, Rainy River RV Resort offers seclusion, wildlife viewing and relaxation. The only noise you will hear are the birds during the day and the coyotes at night!
Because of our seclusion, access is limited to Motorhomes or 5th Wheels up to 34 ft in length. We have two graveled campsites with 30 amp service, one gravel site with no electric,and parking room for several RVs but no gravel or electric. Our little campground offers pond & trout stream fishing on property, as well as a 1 hole par three golf tee & green(Green usable for chipping, but not putting due to poor condition this year) for practicing your "short game". We have drinking water available and a dump station is only 1.5 miles away at Onaway State Park. Campers, you must be self contained as we do not have any external restroom or shower facilities.
Give us a visit this summer. Watch the deer and other animals while sitting in your RV or in our Screened sitting area. Look for Petoskey Stones, fossils, and Pudding Stones without leaving our property. When you arrive, you will feel like you are really "Up North"; when you get back home, you will definitely be relaxed.
