Beginning in spring 2021, visitors to Camp Petosega will have to travel to the campground ONLY from Pickerel Lake Road while road construction occurs on Banwell Road bridge just north of Camp Petosega Road. The construction is scheduled to be completed in July 2021, though that time frame is dependent upon weather. Emmet County residents visiting Camp Petosega will need to use Pickerel Lake Road as access from the north will be restricted. Please see the map and alternative directions while this road construction is underway. (Click here to see more information about this detour, including a larger map and alternate directions)
