Camp Pet-O-Se-Ga: From boys' camp, to Jewish kids' camp, to family campground over nearly 80 years
Emmet County's Camp Pet-O-Se-Ga is now open for the camping season, as of May 1, 2013. The campground has 90 sites plus a number of cabins available for rent. The Rec Hall and open-air pavilion are also available for rentals for weddings and special events. Camp Pet-O-Se-Ga is located on Pickerel Lake, at the start of the Inland Waterway. For reservations, call (231) 347-6536.
Now that the campground is officially open, we thought it would be great timing to put together some of the history of the camp for one of Emmet County's regular monthly Blasts from the Past videos. This installment includes some of the camp's lesser-known background as a Jewish kids' camp, after it was a camp for boys beginning in 1934. Click here to view the Blast from the Past.
