There are no direct flights to Wakonse, but we recommend flying to either Chicago or Detroit and then connecting by air to the Muskegon, Michigan Airport. It is then a thirty minute drive north from the airport to camp (near Shelby, Michigan on your map). At the Muskegon Airport, you can either rent a car or arrange for an airport pickup. Please notify Wakonse staff to see if arrangements can be made.

Airport Pickups:

If Chicago or Detroit is not an option for you, look into a flight into Grand Rapids, Michigan. It is a two hour drive from Grand Rapids to camp so you will need to rent a vehicle. We recommend making those plans well in advance.
