Ewing Point Campsite

Hiawatha National Forest



The Hiawatha National Forest is home to many rustic campsites located on inland lakes. Visitors can enjoy swimming, berry picking, and fishing, as well as a 9 mile hiking trail on the Bruno's Run Hiking Trail. Facilities at the campsite include a pit toilet, tables, campfire ring with a grill, and a lantern post. McKeever Lake, with a size of 132 acres, provides many fishing opportunities and a beautiful walk-in campsite with hemlock and cedar trees.


There are many campsites on the Munising and Rapid River/Manistique Ranger Districts of the Hiawatha National Forest. Many are located on inland lakes and are in a rustic forest environment with few to no amenities and no drinking water. The rustic environment offers a wonderfully serene and peaceful setting for your next camping experience. All of these sites are nestled in hardwood trees and pines. All of them are on small inland lakes, which offer a wide variety of fishing opportunities. 


Visitors will be able to enjoy swimming, berry picking, and fishing at these dispersed campsites. Licenses are required for fishing in Michigan waters.

Bruno's Run Hiking Trail weaves throughout the Ewing Point area, offering 9 miles of adventure for hikers. The trail is accessible at various locations, two of which are near the Ewing Point parking area. One section of the trail leads to Grassy Lake, while the other heads along the southeastern portion of McKeever Lake.
McKeever Lake offers great fishing for musky, pike, bass and pan fish, and there is boat access in the parking area. Boats must be carried to the site by hand or through the water. Because the water is quite shallow, large boats are not recommended.

The lake bottom is sandy and provides good wading opportunities. Be cautious when swimming because this area has not ben checked for possible hazards - swimming is at your own risk.


There is NO drinking water at the site. Drinking water must be carried in. Water is available at Pete's Lake Campground.

There is a pit toilet available.

The campsite is equipped with tables, a campfire ring with a grill and a lantern post.
