*Honcho Rest is a RV Park Only*
Honcho Rest Campground is located on 1,000 feet of frontage on beautiful, private Bass Lake. We are in between Elk Lake and Lake Michigan, across the street from the Elk Rapids Public Golf Course. Honcho Rest has 102 shaded and partially shaded campsites and also 6 cabins; approximately 50% of campsites are rented to seasonal guests. 95 of our sites have sewer, water, electric, and cable television the remaining 7 are without sewer hookup. On top of that our whole campground is covered by our Wi-Fi wireless internet access.
We have countless great activities within minutes of the campground, if you look at our Fun Things to Do, Area Attractions, or Seasonal Info you will get a feel for all the fun to be had while staying at Honcho Rest Campground.
Downtown Elk Rapids is about 1.5 miles from the campground with many shops and activities hosted by the village weekly. Great dining is less than 1 mile away including semi-famous Pearls Cajun Restaurant.
We are currently adding new campsites - please refer to a description of this expansion in our website section entitled Our Future. Our current campsites are all constructed with concrete and include spacious yards with fire rings.
Thinking about seasonal camping look at our Seasonal Camping page and see all the benefits and fun seasonal camping can provide!
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I get to choose my site? No, however, you are more than welcome to make a request for site #, type, area, etc. We do not guarantee that we will meet all requests, but we work very hard to please you.
Why is my site request not guaranteed? We cannot guarantee site numbers or types simply because we need to retain the ability to move reservations around in order to fill to capacity, while still trying to meet EVERYONE'S request.
I see check-in/check-out time is 12:00pm. Can I come early/stay later? We are happy to accommodate early check-ins, as long as the site is already vacated by the previous tenant. However, please be mindful to the fact that the site may be occupied by a previous tenant until 12:00pm. Arriving early does not get you a "better site". Late departures are welcome if available, We offer a convience of 2 hrs then at a rate of $5.00 per hour past 2:00pm. If you are interested in an early check-in or late departure, please inquire with the office.
Can we bring our own firewood? We do allow outside firewood to be brought in, as long as it does not come from a quarantined area. Please check with your local officials to find out if your location is considered quarantined. We do ask that you refrain from transporting ash wood. If you do not wish to bring your own firewood, it can be purchased at the office.
