Fisherman's Landing & Campground is excited to be host us again this fall for our second anual trip. They are well versed in hosting events such as fishing tournaments, and while the owners always like bringing in something new to downtown Muskegon, hosting a competition is right up their alley. Muskegon lake is known for almost always having wind even when Lake Michigan does not. Combined with minimal waves for being an inland lake this should offer some very exciting racing!
CURRENT CONDITIONS (and FORECAST)
Please read the next 2 sections in detail, this isn't the same as a State Park
BOATS & TRAILERS
The beach should be ideal for launching. Trailers are recommended to be kept on your campsite, provided there is room. Otherwise, trailers will be parked along the northern edge of the campground. Trailers are not be be parked in the boat area and there is a tree overhanging the road to the beach. Please unload your boat and move it to the boat area with beachwheels before stepping your mast.
CAMPER & NON CAMPER INFORMATION
The campground has a strict 2-vehicle per campsite policy. Vehicles not associated with camping should try to pair up with a camper that only has 1 vehicle on their site. The Campgroup will have individual gate codes per campsite, so it would be best for commuters to function as a guest of someone who is camping. If you only plan to have 1 vehicle on your campsite please volunteer to host a commuter. If no additional parking is available please park in the boat ramp parking lot outside of the fence.
Reservations are made by calling the campground directly. Sites are not specifically reserved, but mention that you are with CRAM and when they pick sites they will do their best to group us together. Please make you reservation as early as possible to ensure you get a spot. A one-night deposit is due at the time of reservation and within the week preceding you will get a pre-check in call to pay the remaining balance and any add-ons as well as go over the park rules. The campground is offering CRAM sailors late checkout, but please try to be packed up and out around 4 PM on Sunday.
30 Amp: $38
The waterfront sites are those along the Western and Southern edged of the campground. RVs and Trailers only on the waterfront sites. Pull-through sites are denoted by an arrow. 50A sites are denoted by a circle around the number. Tent-only sites are 6 Eastern sites adjacent to the parking lot numbered 64 through 74. Our host have recommended that tenters reserve a 30Amp site which will provide more space for vehicle & trailer parking, and to be closer to the beach.
