By Veterans. For Veterans.



Rally Point Veterans Campground was founded on the concept of providing veterans a quiet place to camp free of charge. The hope is that veterans would gravitate towards one another and connect with fellow veterans. Rally Point Veterans Campground is open to all veterans from all eras. Our rustic camping facility requires campers to sign in with military ID, pick a camping spot and enjoy the wilderness without hassle or red-tape. Campers must bring their own gear, however, porta-johns and a dumpster are provided. Weapons and fireworks are strictly prohibited. Fires must be contained to fire rings and we ask that all fires are fully extinguished before leaving the site. 


Rally Point Veterans Campground is located in the heart of the Manistee National Forrest and is only 15 minutes from the Lake Michigan shoreline in Manistee. Local attractions include numerous rivers, streams and inland lakes, miles of Lake Michigan beaches, golf courses, restaurants, shopping and much more.
