Spend the day relaxing in front of your campfire in one of our spacious, grassy campsites; enjoy the enchanting quiet of Seaman Lake at our beachfront; relax by our swimming pool; or spend the day exploring with your ORV on the nearby trail system. Challenge the waters of the Pine River by canoe, or find a private trout fishing hole on the Little Manistee River. Whatever you do, the choice is yours... it is your Leisure Time!

The Pine River and Pere Marquette River are both very popular canoeing rivers, there are numerous canoe liveries available in the area.

Both the Pine and the Pere Marquette rivers boast excellent spring and fall salmon runs. People come from all over to fish these runs. Area lakes, including Seaman Lake where the campground is, have some of the best fishing available in the state.Seaman Lake even claims two (yes two!) state record largemouth bass. People fish the area lakes for bass, pike, bluegill, and perch. The Little Manistee River is a popular fishery for the trout fisherman, and Lake Michigan has countless charter boats that can take you on a deep sea type of fishing expedition.

Deer abound in the area, along with bear, porcupines, squirrels, and rabbits. There are wild turkeys, bald eagles, partridge, crow, woodcock, frogs, turtles, ducks, heron, otter, mink, and canadian geese. Many deer hunters and turkey hunters choose to make Leisure Time Campground their base camp. See our Hunter's Page for more pictures!
