Cottage on a unique peninsula of Thunder Lake. So much to see and do: Near Munising to go see Pic. Rocks Lakeshore (28 miles) and the waterfalls but also near Manistique to visit Big Springs (aka Kitchiti-kippi) a must see and it only approx. 10 miles) and Fayette State park. The Indian River is near and is a local favorite for canoeing or kayaking. Swim, fish, boat or lounge near the lake. Vacation of a lifetime. You will need serveral days to do everything there is to do.

The space

Centrally located, Thunder Lake is in the heart of the Hiawatha National Forest, offering plenty of opportunities for those outdoor enthusiasts along with many other inland lakes for fishing, boating, hunting or swimming in the summer months. This cottage (also known as Camp Thunder Buck) is on the peninsula directly across from public boat launch. Bring your own fishing boat or use the one provided by us. Located within miles is Kitchiti-Kippi, Lake Michigan, the Indian River for canoeing/kayaking or travel 35 miles north to the Pictured Rocks to take a ride on the boat cruises, spend the day chasing waterfalls or hang out on the beach of Lake Superior. So much to do.... Please check back for updated pictures. We purchased this property 10/2016 and are in the process of many updates. U.P dirt roads and secluded back raods with limited service to get access to property... adventure awaits! Download maps ahead of time. Use GPS location: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and then follow road to end of peninsula. Cabin on Left!

Other things to note

We want to be sure that our guests respect our neighbors space. We ask that quiet hours begin at 11 pm. No fireworks allowed.
Munising is about 28 miles....approx 12 on dirt roads. Nearest store is about 12 miles and nearest restraunt is about 12 miles. I will send some maps when it nears the booking date. I wouldn't always trust a GPS navigator to get you around the UP back roads. There isn't always service and they are not always accurate. See our "sister" property CAMP THUNDER BUCK TOO! Book both at the same time for a family reunion or large group.

Great place to stay! We had some poor weather during our trip, but the cabin was still big enough for our large group for the day. Everything was clean when we got there (and when we left, lol). The quiet setting on the lake was wonderful, and the little boat and kayaks were a nice touch (one of the two families who came had brought some, but the extras allowed a few people who had not ever kayaked before to go with). We had a chance to take a look at the 2nd cabin, and it would be a perfect setup for anyone who needed space to rent both out! Jesse was a great host, and was unbelievably quick at responding. This was a great place to stay, and we highly recommend it to anyone!

Response from Jessie:
Thank you for the nice review Jason...and also thank you for the gifts you left. I love the yard dice...they are so cool that I left them on the shelf to display them. You all left the camp immaculate. After a long day at work...surely made my night walking in there to see it look that well. Please come back again next year!

What a great place, our host was quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. The house was clean and well-kept. We love the decorations of the local sites in the upper Peninsula. The lake was beautiful with great fishing. She was a very gracious host while giving us plenty of privacy. We plan to return if they'll have us.

Great lake house for a family vacation! Enjoyed the secluded location and appreciated the use of the dock and kayaks. Our boys spent most of our time at the house swimming in the lake with adults supervising through the large windows overlooking the dock. Owners were responsive to questions and helped us navigate the roads of the Upper Peninsula. A relaxing and enjoyable week!

Camp Thunder Buck is awesome!! Perfect space for an up north getaway. Very private and gorgeous lake views. Excellent communication and direction, everything was perfect. Perfect spot to check out pictured rocks and kitch-iti-kipi! Having the kayaks to use on the lake was a nice bonus. Everything was as described and we can't wait to return for our next U.P. trip!
