Brown Bridge Road divides the campground into East & West sides with the canoe launch and a few campsites on the East side. The West side provides a larger camping area on a big loop road in addition to a day-use area with a barrier-free viewing/fishing platform at the water's edge.
There is a total of 30 rustic sites for tents & RVs, handicap accessible vault toilets & water from several hand-pumps. (some big RVs can be accommodated, however, generators are discouraged) Each campsite has a picnic table & fire ring.
Forks and Scheck's are the only state forest campgrounds on the the Boardman River; both are located on Brown Bridge Road, about 3.5 miles apart.
There are areas open to dispersed camping several miles up-river, north of Supply Road, on the north branch of the Boardman.
Scheck's Trail Camp entrance is about 1/2 mile east of the main campground & provides river & trail access for campers with horses. Paddlers pass the trail camp about 10 minutes before reaching the main campground's take-out.
NOTE: Parking a vehicle at Scheck's requires a Michigan Recreation Passport.
