While researching the 7 Little Secrets of Michigan’s Sleeper State Park we discovered that the camping outfitter, Tentrr had set up 15 secluded glamping sites. Each has a large platformed walled canvas tent containing a queen-sized cot or bunk bed, and a wood stove.

There are an on-site water supply and a sun shower provided to round out the other amenities to make for an extremely comfortable outdoor experience. Guests need only bring your own food, firewood, and bedding. There is a selection of 15 secluded wooded sites, and five beachside camps.
