   Welcome from your hosts, Riley & Vicky Turner we encourage you to visit us on your next vacation up north get-away. Find a price with us to fit any vacation budget. Come enjoy some adventurous fun filled days, year round for people of all ages. Twenty acres of sprawling beauty at R & J Resort Campground brings great atmosphere for things like fall salmon, spring walleye, summer skamania, crappie, trout and year round steelhead fishing at world renowned Tippy Dam on Big Manistee River (open water all year) and Bear Creek. Anglers try fishing nearby designated trout steams on Pine Creek or Little Manistee River. Boating sportsmen, the backwaters above Tippy Dam have record walleye, bass, pike, perch, blue gill and other pan fish or ride your jet ski. Thrill seekers try some adventurous canoeing, kayaking or float down the skilled Pine River, Big and Little Manistee River. Rent a $5 boat outing on a private lake or enjoy swimming.

   Explore the beauty of wilderness nature within the woods of the Huron Manistee National Forest. Plenty of small game, turkey, white tail deer to hunt and woodland surprises such as tasty morel mushrooms. We also have other great extraordinary tasting mushrooms that pop their head up; in our surrounding area you can enjoy festivals and picking fun through out the year. Fabulous trails nearby to hike or bike through some spectacular sights, lookout points and terrain.

  R & J Resort is located in Brethren, Michigan and offers comfortable and affordable cottages (fully furnishes just like home); semi modern cabins (sleeping units with a few amenities) or rustic cabin (just like camping with a bed between you and the ground) and happy campers enjoy large secluded wooded campsites for tents, travel trailers, 5th wheels or motor homes 45 ft. w/slid outs, along with a place to store your RV. Spacious views as the world awakes, you can sit on cabin porch or picnic table to watch the sunrise, hear the birds sing as nature life dances around you, while sipping your morning coffee and relax.

   Fun family environment, pet & kid friendly park. Playground area is centrally located, easy to access and easy for you to supervise. Feel safe for all to see, as your children play and interact with others, fun for all adults to babies.

   Try your luck at winning our special fishing derby contest or try The Little River Casino or adventure with some nearby geo caching or nearby golfing. We're standing by waiting for you in nature's paradise.  Kick back and relax or keep yourself busy with all the attractions just minutes away. Stroll down our private nature foot trail on our acres to encounter natural beauty, wild-flowers, fall colors, hunt fall mushroom, watch birds and wildlife, pick berries, walk with your pets or walk holding hands with your loved ones.

   Winter enthusiasts enjoy the snow rush, snowmobile right from your door to Wellston trails toward Cadillac and Irons or Benzie-Manistee Snowbirds through Kaleva toward Traverse City. Hit the slopes downhill, cross-country skiing, snowboard, snowshoe the trails or ice fish our inland lakes. Or just a peaceful, quiet, relaxing time, under a star filled sky by your campfire, roasting some marshmallows for s’mores. The sky is truly the limit for quality family fun, activities, treasure finds, and thrills, all within our great relaxing atmosphere and down home hospitality. 
Come join us so we may help stimulate your heart, bring back old memories of yesteryears to tell stories or make new lasting memories and share lots of healthy laughter.
