The Sunset Over Mullett Lake

At Pigeon Bay Campground in Northern Michigan we’re at the heart of of the great Inland Waterway at the south end of Mullett Lake, the fourth largest inland lake in Michigan and one of its true jewels of fishing and boating and having a good time. The channel from the campground leads directly to the lake so you’re a few short minutes from Mullett Lake when you camp at Pigeon Bay.

This means most of the Great Up North and many of its communities are accessible by boat from Pigeon

Bay.  If you love fishing and boating, Mullett Lake is truly one of the finest places on earth during the summer. The bass, walleye, perch, and pike fishing in Mullett Lake make

this lake a destination for many avid anglers each year. When you camp at Pigeon Bay, this incredible northern Michigan fishing resource is at your fingertips… or better yet… a leisurely boat cruise away.

Do you love to make wakes with your speed boat or pontoon across pristine blue  waters in the north country? Is it your thing to cruise to riverside and lakeshore restaurants for a casual lunch? Do you love a barbecue outside at your campground after a day in the warm sun fishing or recreational boating?

If the answer is yes you should consider making your summer camper home at Pigeon Bay Campground by Mullett Lake.
