Your West Michigan Vacation Awaits

Located in the rolling green countryside of Western Michigan, Sun Retreats Gun Lake is a scenic destination for a summer vacation. Mature trees and pristine lakes provide an inviting rustic environment for enjoying recreational activities. A memorable Western Michigan vacation awaits you in this gorgeous region!

Layton's Rollin' View Farm

Picture yourself saddled atop a well-behaved horse, riding through gentle hills and alongside wooded forests. Your high perch provides the perfect vantage point for spotting wildlife like deer and turkey that roam across the sprawling 280 acres of land that Layton's Rollin' View Farm's occupies.

Don't know how to ride? No problem! Layton's offers riding clinics covering beginner basics, in addition to sessions for advanced skills and personalized horse training. The farm also has over 30 horses available, so you're sure to find the perfect match for your ride.

Yankee Springs Recreation Area

With nine lakes and 12,000 acres of land, Yankee Springs Recreation Area is a true gem in Western Michigan. Bust out your boots and get to hiking on the 30 miles of trails that wind through dense forests and past shimmering lakes. The park is visited by both mountain bikers and equestrian enthusiasts, so trails have been tailored for these specific activities.

Gun Lake anchors the park and provides crystal clear waters for swimming, along with excellent opportunities for boating, kayaking, and canoeing. Plenty of history runs through the area, as Yankee Springs was once the hunting grounds of the Algonquin Indians. Noteworthy natural features to be sure to keep an eye out for include Devil's Soup Bowls and The Pines.

Sun Retreats Gun Lake

At Sun Retreats Gun Lake you'll discover why we're one of the best Michigan RV parks with numerous deluxe amenities to enjoy. Our well-maintained grounds feature Grebe Lake, where you can enjoy activities like canoeing and kayaking or reeling in some bass and bluegill with some catch-and-release fishing from the fishing pier. There is also a picturesque pond, so our guests can enjoy a more private and peaceful setting.

Cool down from the summer sun in the swimming pool, or unwind after an active day in relaxing spa waters. Outdoor recreations like basketball, horseshoes, and volleyball offer plenty of group fun, while walking paths give you plenty of opportunities to explore. We also provide a kid-friendly playground and game room, plus family-friendly themed weekends and planned activities available all season.

This summer, take a trip among rolling hills and blue lakes to discover an authentic Western Michigan experience. Don't want to miss out on any of the fun? Become a seasonal guest and receive a site upgrade package worth over $3,000, so you can enjoy Sun Retreats Gun Lake for the entire season!
