Help preserve our valuable ash trees that provide the shade and beauty you enjoy during your camping experience at the Rustic Barn Campground and RV Park.
The ash trees on our site are at risk from the Emerald Ash Borer -- an alien pest that kills ash trees by feeding on phloem and outer sapwood. They've already killed six million ash trees in Michigan! To save our trees -- and your shade -- please do not bring outside firewood into the park. Firewood can harbor many different kinds of invasive pests (gypsy moth, oak wilt, emerald ash borer), and diseases harmful to local trees. These pests hitchhike on firewood from other areas and make the campground their new home.
We apologize for this inconvenience that is out of our control. Firewood from a state-certified provider is offered at the park at an affordable price.
