Campground Overview

We love stories and the people who tell them. Whether they are told at dusk around the campfire while roasting marshmallows, or in the morning around the coffee pot, we love to hear other camper’s adventures and tales from the road.

Since you are here and considering a stay at Antrim Meadows, I will break the ice and start with our story. We are Doug and Stacey Hicks–short-time campground owners and Northern Michigan natives. We actually attended the same highschool, but moved apart until a chance meeting brought us back together in 2005. We returned to Northern Michigan in 2014 and soon after, we re-opened Doug’s successful auto-repair business, Doug’s Garage and Off-Road Center. Over the years, we also developed a love for camping to add to our other hobbies of travel, motorcycles and mountain bike riding.

Our purchase of Antrim Meadows was another chance encounter that paid off for us. We had recently sold our auto repair business, so we were looking for our next venture. On our way to our new home in Mancelona, Doug noticed the campground was for sale. I’m not going to lie, I had questions. After all, it was 2020 and the world was shutting down, so starting a new business in uncertain times seemed, well, not smart. But as we talked about the possibilities and the potential the property held, we decided the location provided the perfect spot for us to share our love of camping and Northern Michigan. 

Whether you are into mountain biking, boating, swimming, hiking, kayaking, golf, or motorcycle riding, there is no better place to travel than Northern Michigan, and Antrim Meadows serves as the perfect basecamp for your adventures. And when you return to camp, we want to hear all about them.
