Notice to Campers –
The Bluffs is under new ownership. If you made a camping reservation with the prior owner, please contact us as soon as possible to confirm the dates and lot location so we’ll be ready for your visit! 

The Best Burgers in Northern Michigan
With close to forty years of combined experience, our chefs deliver a full menu of delicious and sumptuous food, including burgers that have been described as the “the best burgers in Northern Michigan.” In addition, we feature Michigan-made craft beers along with standard selections. We smoke all our own meats with applewood, we cut our steaks to order, and all of our signature sauces, including our mayo, is homemade. Check out our menu.

The Bluffs is Easy to Find
The Bluffs on the Lake is easy to find. We’re directly across from the Black Mountain Recreation Area, and we’re only a short drive from Rogers City, Cheboygan, Onaway and Indian River.

We’re at the Trailhead
The Bluffs on the Lake is at the trailhead for all Northeast Michigan trails. We welcome visitors all year-round, including mountain bikers, hikers, and motorcyclists in the warmer weather, and snowmobilers and cross-country skiers when it turns cold.  In fact, the cross country ski trail groomer comes directly to the front door of our restaurant. Boaters can dock on our northeast shore, and we’ll be glad to pick you up in our golf cart and bring you directly to the restaurant.

We’d Like You to Camp at the Bluffs
With 38 campsites, we offer a complete camping experience. Half of our sites feature electricity, while the other half are for campers who prefer a more rustic camping experience. In addition, we recently installed new showers and bathrooms for our campers. Read more about our campground.
