    Where is the best place to stay if we fish out of Sunset Marina?

    At Sunset...if ya got a camper.
    If not, not sure what's close.
    May want to drive tad further N, try Sebewaing. Think 2 motels there.
    Otherwise, Bay City is a 30 minute drive East

    Sunset will normally let you camp in the overflow areas. Campers or tents, they don't care.

    Yep....Finn Rd also has a nice little campground. You could launch right there also.

    I was told the same thing, i'm afraid the new owner is going run some people off. I'm being told the new guy running it is the son of the existing owner and going to put a gate up and you will have a code to get in and launch soon.

    I know fuel was cheap there most of the summer. Then it shot up like other marinas.

    Not really anything close. Sunset is in the middle of no where. Like others said lots of campgrounds.
    If you are willing to drive 35-40 minutes to Sunset you could find some south or west of Sunset.
    I live in Frankenmuth and its about 40 minutes for me.

    This is about it for the area....With all the fishing nowdays for walleye, both summer and winter, if someone was to build a small motel, it would probably do well! Or some cabins somewhere out that way :)

    Dang, I didn't even know there was new ownership. I'm on Lot 7 on the west bank. We used to just show up and camp in the over flow. Heck a few times noone was there so we just paid the next day. Good to know that there may be some rules nowadays. Hopefully they don't change it up too much or I'll have to give up the lot.
