The camp experience with comforts of home


Our clean, comfortable cabins are built in the traditional wood camp style, renovated with modern restrooms and hot showers in each cabin. Most cabins have 12 bunks, with two full bathrooms in each cabin. For groups and family camp, cabins are available for 2-18 people.

Nissokone features three large, historic lodge-style buildings with seating for up to 200 people and beautiful hardwood floors: the Dining Hall, the Crow’s Nest, and the Theatre, each with a spectacular lakefront view on our mile of shoreline. The Crow’s Nest and Theatre serve as multi-functional group space for plays, dancing, banquets, rainy day indoor space, and to show slideshows or skits. Perhaps most impressive is the natural beauty of the outdoor lakeside Chapel with its views of Loud Island. Two of the most iconic Nissokone buildings are the historic Horse Barn and Crow’s Nest. The impressive Horse Barn features carefully crafted solid wood carpentry, high peaked rafters, and an airy hay loft. The Crow’s Nest is a lodge-style banquet room that overlooks the boating area, called the Fleet Dock, a hub of activity throughout the summer.

At the center of camp is the modern Health Center, where our onsite Camp Nurse provides first-aid care, and keeps medical equipment and medication safely stored. The closest Health Clinic is 4 minutes away, and the nearest Urgent Care is 8 minutes from camp. The nearest hospital is Tawas St. Joseph, which is 20 minutes from camp.


Food at camp is plentiful and hearty American fare. There are options at each meal in addition to the main dish; at breakfast there is a hot and cold cereal bar, including yogurt, fresh fruit, granola, cottage cheese etc. At each lunch and dinner, we have a full salad bar with an alternate dish. For breakfast, we have options such as French toast, pancakes, omelets with sausage and bacon available.  A typical lunch could be soup and deli style sandwiches or chicken tenders. Some dinners could be pizza, tacos, ribs, Thanksgiving-style turkey and potatoes, and stuffing. Our kitchen does a fantastic job accommodating special dietary concerns and making everyone feel comfortable at camp, as we work carefully to provide a variety of healthy nutritious alternate meals in the case of allergies or other special dietary concerns. Milk is available at each meal. Camp Nissokone is a peanut-free facility.
