St. James Township Campground on the Bluff Overlooking Garden Island

The St. James Township Campground sits on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, as well as nearby Garden, Squaw and Whiskey Islands. Located just off Donegal Bay Road near the end of the bike trail, the rustic campground is a great place to spend your nights while staying on beautiful Beaver Island. Our 12 campsites are rustic in nature, but hand pumps and pit toilets are available. Conveniently located just a short walk from both downtown St. James and the popular swimming beach at Donegal Bay. Our campsites are allotted on a first-come, first-serve basis. $10 per night. You will enjoy beautiful sunsets and may be lucky enough to view the Northern Lights.  Definitely a dark sky destination!
