Flowing Well Campground

Rapid River, Michigan

Book through our partner Recreation Gov

Overview

Flowing Well Campground is situated along the western banks of the Sturgeon River, among large trees and a variety of wildflowers. Camping, fishing, picnicking and canoeing can be enjoyed in a serene setting.

Recreation

The area is most popular for canoeing and other non-motorized boating, as the Sturgeon River Canoe Trail runs right through the campground. The trail weaves with the river through a 41-mile portion of the heavily wooded Hiawatha National Forest. There are various access points along the river.
Fishing is also popular, with brook trout, steelhead and salmon found in the river.

Facilities

The campground offers less than a dozen spacious sites for tent and RV camping. Some sites are situated along the bank, overlooking the slow-moving river.
Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings, and most come equipped with grills as well. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. The water from the well has a heavy iron and sulfur content, which is an acquired taste, but is safe to consume.
A group picnic area is also equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. It is adjacent to a good-sized parking area. Vault toilets and drinking water are also available.

Natural Features

The campground is sandwiched between Forest Highway 13 and the Sturgeon River, in the lower portion of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It is about 10 miles from the northern shores of Lake Michigan. The region is dotted with wildflowers and mature trees.
