With the "no-motor" rule in place, Ely Lake is perfect for kayaks, row boats and stand-up paddle boards, as well as, swimming.
Ely Lake Campground is a primitive campground with wooded campsites available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Winter camping is encouraged, as well as, spring, summer and fall camping. There are several short trails around the Ely Lake Campground area as well as a few longer trails that are great for longer adventures.
Ely Lake Campground and the trails are open year round.
The trail around Ely Lake is approximately one mile in length with occasional views of the lake through the entire loop. There is a possibility of logs over the trail, but you should have no problem hopping over them or moving them out of the way.
Surrounding trails, within the campground, visit the deep woods of the Allegan State Game Area including the "Fallen Forest Trail", and the "Little Tom Swamp Trail." During spring when water levels fluctuate, the Little Tom Lake area maybe moist, perfect for those interested in swamps, the most valuable ecosystems on Earth.
