Take a Tour of Camp Anam Cara

Welcome to Camp Anam Cara on Spruce Lake!

A private, 150-acre retreat where you and your family can play, rest and restore your spirits. Away from the noise and the crowds, in the pristine wilderness of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Anam Cara means True Friendship in Gaelic. We believe friendship is built on hospitality.

As our guests at Anam Cara, experience misty mornings, crystalline afternoons, and nights ablaze with a billion stars and the Northern Lights. Drink in the cleanest, most refreshing air and water on earth. See our moose ponds and beaver dams, listen to loons, lapping waves and rustling breezes. Let your senses rejuvenate you with the caress of unspoiled nature.

The kids had a ball kayaking and hiking the woods while we were content grilling and enjoying the sunsets. It was a great place for the whole family.

A beautiful, quiet place to reconnect with yourself. Every day we were on the lake and finished the evenings watching movies together. One of the best vacations I have had for a long time.
