Camping & Glamping In {{ statePark }}

Welcome to Tentrr at Michigan’s Highland Recreation Area

Michigan is known for its greenery, and you’ll see plenty of it on display at Highland Recreation Area. With 5,900 acres of forests, marshes and lakes, there is more than enough to occupy the most avid campers, hikers, the adrenaline-junkie mountain bikers, the horseback rider, and, in the winter, the skiers.

There are three day-use areas in the park specially for picnics and camping activities such as swimming, horseshoes, and volleyball, at two sites at Teeple Lake and one at Haven Hill Lake.

What to do at Highland Recreation Area

Speaking of lakes, there is plenty of fishing to be done by the anglers in your camping party at the four lakes that make up Highland Recreation Area. In a place known for its walleye, you’re sure to catch a few, but bluegills are also a prime commodity. You can also find smallmouth bass, rock bass, and perch--and the occasional pike.

One notable area to camp is the Haven Hill Natural Area, which is unique for having all of southern Michigan’s forest types on display in one small area, which includes oak-hickory forests, mixed-hardwood forests- and swamp forests full of tamarack, cedar, and beech-maple. The area has been protected and largely undisturbed for 75 years. It’s an area that is particularly known for its birding and spring wildflowers.

Aside from all of those camping activities, there is hunting (with a license and permits). Hunting in southern Michigan can bring you to bear, deer, elk, turkey, small game, and waterfowl.

No matter what you’re looking for in an outdoor camping experience in southern Michigan, Highland Recreation Area has a little bit of something for everyone.
