About Waffle Farm Campgrounds
Waffle Farm Campgrounds is Located in Coldwater, Michigan. Exit 16 off of I-69 ( Jonesville Road Exit ). The Campground is located mainly on Craig Lake and partially on Morrison Lake. These two lakes are part of a chain of 7 beautiful lakes totaling over 1074 acres. This chain of lakes is known as the Randall-Morrison Chain. All 7 lakes are noted in southern Michigan for their excellent fishing.
The campground is separated into two sections: The main camp has 225 sites and the seasonal camp 151 sites. In the main campground your choice of facilities vary from a primitive site to a waterfront site with full hookup. These sites are availible to you by the night, weekend, week, or season depending on their location. The main camp facilities consist of 3 restrooms, 2 playgrounds, a large swimming beach and a new 48 ft. wide boat launch that will accommodate two boat launches at one time. Also in the main campground is the 60-site club area. Near this club are is a 40′ x 80′ and 24′ x 40′ pavillion. The seasonal camp has 151 sites (all with full hook up). The majority of the 151 sites are on the front.
For the skiing and pleasure craft enthusiast — Morrison and Randall Lakes are more suited for skiing becuase of their large size. The remainder of the chain is beautiful to cruise through for the scenery. The last lake is Messenger Lake which has the County Park with a picnic area and beach. There is one eating place with lounge on the chain that is accessible by boat.
