If you ever camp out at Pictured Rocks, book at least one night at Trappers Lake. This was easily my favorite spot we pitched tent at. It was a treat my group deserved after a morning packing and hiking in the pouring rain for four hours. We were able to find wood to burn and enjoyed ourselves a bonfire under this gorgeous sky. I remember seeing the most stars I had ever seen that night, waking up at 3am. Unfortunately my camera at the time was still broken, so none of the long exposures turned out, but let’s say a couple days later I got lucky 😉 If I had it my way, I would have camped at this spot for a week - we had the whole lake to ourselves! I even went for a morning swim. It was definitely a nice place to recover from the trail.
