    Camping near John Muir trails

    Is there any good camping near the John Muir trails in the southern kettles? Looking to be able to get out of the tent, jump on the bike and hit the trail. From what I can see on the DNR site there isn't anything really close to the trail.

    Thanks

    There isn't anything that close. Whitewater Lake is the closest place to camp that I know of.

    Ottawa Lake Recreation area is less than 30 minutes away, and is a very nice camping area. The lake has a nice beach, and there are some great campsites. There are also some hiking trails just outside the recreation area, but bring the bug repellant.
