"Where Camping and Boating Come Together"
Cheyboygan, MI Campgrounds - Located on the Picturesque Cheboygan River
Waterways Campground is nestled along the shores of the Cheboygan River which offers access to 42 miles of continuous inland waterways. Our onsite boat launch and dock ensures easy access to our magnificent waterway. Guests can enjoy fishing, tubing, kayaking, and boating leisurely along the river.
The Cheboygan River is a unique inland waterway that is one of the most picturesque routes in America. Boaters can expect a journey of fresh, pure and clean water through three rivers and three lakes.
A Variety of Fish Species
The Cheboygan River can be utilized to travel to Burt Lake, Mullett Lake and Crooked Lake. The average depth of the river is five feet and its width reaches up to 30 feet. It is located just .8 miles from Cheboygan. Fishermen find success in catching a variety of fish including salmon, brook trout, rainbow trout, bass, walleye, and sunfish. Whether you are baitcasting, using spinners or fly-fishing, you are sure to get some great bites here.
"The Cheboygan Sportfishing Association gets between 65,000 and 70,000 fish to plant each year. The group estimates that nearly one million fingerlings have been released at the mouth of the Cheboygan River during the past 15 years."—Cheboygan News, 2015
Michigan Department of Natural Resources makes purchasing your fishing license online easy.
A River to Relax On and Explore
Our journey begins relaxing down the river to chilly Mullett Lake. Next boaters can continue down into the serene beauty of Indian River and then Burt Lake. Boaters can continue the adventure and experience the Crooked River and Crooked Lake. The river touches the communities of Cheboygan, Mullett Lake, Aloha, Topinabee, Indian River, Alanson, Ponshewaing, Oden, and Conway. Guests can venture north and visit Cheboygan and eat dinner and shop.
