Lake View

Lakeview UM Campground is open to individuals, families, and church groups -- EVERYONE is WELCOME. The campground is located 45 miles north and east of Grand Rapids just off M-46 between US-127 and US-131. The campground is open from mid- May through the end of October and hosts special events during the winter months. Lakeview is a Christian, family focused camp promoting an alcohol free environment. There is a prayer-meditation garden, a meditation labyrinth, and chapel area available along with 2 miles of shaded walkways with benches. We have a music stage for every-Saturday music presentations. The camp maintains a boat launch, has 7 docks and an excellent swimming beach on Townline Lake. The lake is great for water skiing, fishing, and boating. The camp has developed a 300-acre ATV course, which will be open in the Spring of 2010. All sites are wooded with some lakefront lots and have water, picnic table, fire ring, and have either 20/30-amp service with some sites having 20/30/50 amp service. Lakeview Camp is opening 50 rustic sites on Townline Lake and the Pike Breeding pond in Spring 2010. All sites are wooded, have fire rings, and have picnic tables. There are 6 clustered areas for groups or singles where pets are welcome. The area has several golf courses, flea markets, antique shops and an Amish cheese factory in the immediate area. Reservations may be made by phone, mail, or internet website.
