By Veterans. For Veterans.



Rally Point Veterans Campground was founded on the concept of providing all Veterans and their families a quiet place to camp FREE OF CHARGE. No reservation is required, nor do we have designated sites. We do ask that you call in advance, but it is not required. Our rustic camping facility does require you to provide proof of Military Service with Military ID or DD214 for entrance. Porta-Johns are provided, along with fire rings, and fire wood. All fires must be FULLY EXTINGUISHED before you leave your site for any reason. FIREARMS AND FIREWORKS ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED. THOSE IN VIOLATION WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE. 

Rally Point Veterans Campground is located in the heart of the Manistee National Forest and is only 15 minutes from Lake Michigan. The Manistee are does offer 2 free beaches, plenty of local attractions, numerous rivers, streams and inland lakes for outdoor activities. Local guidebooks are provided on site and available when you sign our guestbook.
