Please help. Trying to plan a vacation for my bro and I. Wanna spend a week this June camping on a good fishing lake, without being crowded. The less people we see that week, the better. Would like to camp on state land somewhere, but a secluded campground that's not used much would be fine too. As long as it's on the lake. Wanna be able to just get up in the morning and hop in the boat. Wanna fish for Bass, Walleye, Pike and maybe Catfish. Cannot sacrifice seclusion- wanna see as few people as possible, and still be able to fish on a decent lake. Cabin suggestions are alright, but we're working with a tight budget. Please help! Have no idea where to look.

Will do that. Any ideas within Michigan though? Upper or lower doesn't matter, but would rather stay within the state.

Hey try the AuSable river below M65 on the north side of the river. There's a road in there below the boat launch. We used to camp in there. There's a few poeple there on weekends, but through the week it's pretty quiet. You can pull your boat up at your camp. We caught numerous perch in the 15inch class. Pike and smallmouth are abundant. I believe it's the 5 Channels Impoundment. I haven't fished it in about 4 years now, but I'm sure it hasn't changed.

Try Fletchers Floodwaters during the week in June.
Stay at Heinnes Landing with tent or camper.
Good Fishin'
