Photos don’t do this place justice, and Houghton Lake State Forest Park is not the name; it’s Houghton Lake State Forest Campground, located on the lake’s north side. Flush toilets. There’s also an artesian wellspring.
Lakeside sites are best.
Houghton Lake Pines movie theater was constructed of western fir. Grayling. Traverse City is about 90 minutes. Roscommon area dining at Beechwood Cafe, Freds; Bob’s butcher shop. Also, a butcher shop in Houghton Lake along M-55. Restaurants on M-55.
