Once experienced, The City of Au Gres Riverfront Campground becomes one of the most popular family campgrounds for our campers. The Campground features a total of 109 campsites (33 on the river, 50 off the river and 26 with sewer access) and 2 NEW Rustic Cabins, all of which are available for daily, weekly or monthly rental. The Campground also houses the Lions Club Community Building, which is available for daily rental and is a convenient resource for gatherings or a meeting location.
Additionally, the Campground features a family picnic and day-use area with barbeque grills, playground equipment and restroom facilities. Fisherman will appreciate the Park’s convenient fish cleaning station and proximity to the State of Michigan boat launch located just minutes from the Park, which provides great access to Saginaw Bay and Lake Huron (via the Au Gres River) for world-class boating and fishing. For tips on this week’s hot fishing locations, just check with any of our staff, and be sure to inquire about upcoming fishing tournaments.
Yes, the fishing is great, but we can also offer you the use of two baseball fields, two lighted tennis courts, a volleyball court, two lighted basketball courts, and kayak rentals. It’s also enjoyable to take a stroll around the Campground on the lighted Riverfront walkway, which can also lead you to the shuffleboard court and horseshoe pit available for your convenience. During the summer, take advantage of the many festivals and events taking place in the area, including the Classic Car Cruise and Show, plus weekly Music in the City free concerts beginning in June.
Our outdoor activity isn’t limited to only warm weather months, so you can also take advantage of the Au Gres Area as a base of operations for ice fishing, snowmobiling and other winter activities in Arenac County, such as the Au Gres Chamber of Commerce Winterfest. We are a key destination for cross country skiing, ice fishing, and snowmobiling, so no matter your outdoor pursuits, come Celebrate our Seasons!
