SFGN's Gay Camping 2019: CreekRidge Campgrounds 

CreekRidge Campgrounds Via Facebook

Michigan's first all male, membership only private campground, CreekRidge Campgrounds was acquired in Summer of 2016, opening the following Spring for the 2017 season. Owners Ron and Mike's mission is to provide an environment where friends become family. 

“As we work to give back to our community, we want to build a campground where we hope you take time to enjoy the simple things in life, building friendships, enjoying what nature has to offer or sitting around an open fire.” Ron and Mike make a point of being out in the field interacting with their guests and assuring them of a good time.

With their second season in the books, CRC has stepped out of the crowd of new gay campgrounds to shine as one of the best gay campgrounds in North America. Located in an underserved market certainly facilitates success, yet this place has worked hard reaching out to gay campers and providing a top quality product all the while maintaining a focus of giving back to the community. Operating a new business delivers a motivation to truly understand what guests expect and how they would like their campground to improve. CRC listens and their success reflects a willingness to work for their customers.

CRC, for men 21 years of age and older, is centrally located near Stockbridge, Michigan, between Ann Arbor and Jackson, northwest of Chelsea, about an hour and half drive from Detroit and twenty minutes from Jackson. The drive from downtown Lansing is less than forty miles. Serving southern Michigan, northern Indiana and northern Ohio, CRC is less than a two hour trip for many campers. 

One hundred and forty-five sites make up the campground. Many are seasonal sites, the core of most gay campgrounds, some with basically permanent campers. In addition, back in and pull through motorhome and trailer sites with water and thirty or fifty amp electricity make up a large part of the property. Tent sites, some with water and electricity and all with tables and fire pits are located under large shade trees or in the open fields for sun seekers. Campsites are all large and well marked.

If you don't own a motorhome or trailer, or simply don't want to bother with hooking it up or pitching a tent, cottages, the bunkhouse, and even some RVs can be rented. Shower houses are clean, modern, and there are plenty of them. A laundromat is available.

A bridged creek runs through the gorgeous seasonal sixty acre campground. The creek separates the clothing optional outdoor area with wooded hiking and walking trails from two fishing ponds and the main campground. 

Set back from the main road CRC is entered through a secure gate at the office. Locked after hours, the gate serves to keep non campers out, and provide a real sense of safety and security.

Like most gay campgrounds the pool is the center of daytime social activity and CRC delivers. The brand new pool is large and maintained beautifully always sparkling clean. Campers are welcome to bring their own beverages to the pool area. Virtually every weekend is packed with themed events both daytime and night. Club Solitude is the blazing dance hall with it's club like environment, laser lights and DJ driven professional sound system. 

CreekRidge Campground is a favorite for many who have become seasonal campers, and for many more who have had the pleasure of a weekend visit.
