Gabions Campground


Gabions Campground offers camping on the National Scenic stretch of the Au Sable River. Natural springs are common on this section of the river, including a small one at the river's edge near the gabions. Gabions are rock-filled wire baskets that are placed along the riverbank to help reduce erosion. 

The Shore-to-Shore Trail passes near the campground; however, Gabions is not a designated horse camp and horse camping is not permitted. Wildlife and waterfowl viewing opportunities exist; please respect wildlife and observe from a distance. 



Natural Features

The Au Sable River is a short walk from the campground where visitors can experience world class fishing and floating opportunities. 

Each site is shaded by a mixed forest of hardwoods, red pines, and jack pine.


This location is unstaffed. To speak with our main office for general information, please call: (989) 826-3252.
