YMCA Camp Pinewood is at the edge of Manistee National Forest near Muskegon, Michigan. Convenient yet remote, we ensure that everyone enjoys the natural beauty of camp's 200-acre facility. Our YMCA Camp and Buildings are located on the edge of spring fed Lake Echo, with its natural sand beach and dock area. Trails encircle the lake, winding through the pine and hardwood forest. The camp is also within easy reach of several area rivers: Muskegon, Pine, and Manistee as well as Lake Michigan, making it the perfect jumping-off point for overnight canoe, kayak, and backpacking trips.
