When you need to get away from it all, there’s no place quite like Wolverine Campground.  Nestled on the north shore of the Holloway Reservoir, Wolverine offers the serenity, natural splendor and family-friendly fun you’d expect to travel hundreds of miles to find.  Whether you’d rather rough it or bring along a few modern conveniences, you’ll find great camping just the way you like it. Getting away doesn’t have to mean going far away, not when mid-Michigan’s best camping is just around the corner at your Genesee County Parks.
