We are proud to be the fourth family to continue the legacy of Whispering Surf Campground. Established in 1913 as an Episcopalian Boys Camp, Camp Morrison -- Whispering Surf is the oldest continuously run private campground in the state of Michigan. Situated on a peninsula between beautiful Bass Lake and the sparkling
sands of Lake Michigan. We are a cozy family campground nestled under beautiful old-growth pines and oak. In 1966, the camp was purchased from its original owner and modernized to accommodate the modern travel trailer. In the years since, the infrastructure of Whispering Surf has been upgraded to accommodate today's RV needs: Full hook-up sites with 20/30/50 amp service, high quality cable TV and free WIFI. While Whispering Surf still preserves the quaintness of an old-fashioned campground, it has kept up with modern technology.
Third-generation families are camping at Whispering Surf. Our beautiful private beach on Bass Lake is a short boardwalk stroll from camp. There you can swim on our sandy bottom beach, dock your boat, fish off our dock or enjoy a picnic lunch. Canoes and kayak rentals are available at Whispering Surf at very reasonable rates. A ten-minute walk down Lakeshore Drive will pop you out at the outlet on Lake Michigan where the water is always bathtub warm and you can walk the sparkling sands of Lake Michigan. The walk down Sunset Lane won't disappoint with breathtaking sunsets over the big lake. Children will enjoy playing on The Ark and Saturday night bonfires are a great way to make new friends.
Our Lodge is one of the few turn-of-the century pavilions remaining today and is a great place to spend a rainy day or evening. The Lodge offers ping pong, pool table, foosball and air hockey. You can also enjoy a wide selection of board games or puzzles. Our library offers a reading selection for all ages. The Lodge can be reserved for special group events.
Early reservations are highly recommended as we fill up fast. West Michigan has so much to offer spring, summer or fall.
Please join our family at Whispering Surf Campground where memories are made.
