We stay at Crystal mountain once a year in the dead of winter for a girls getaway trip coming from the Kalamazoo area, Iron fish is one of our favorite places and this is the second year we reserved a tent at basecamp, and will continue year after year. Bernie is was our server and we was phenomenal. Very friendly and helpful. Wood fire pizzas are prime! great drinks as always too :) we love iron fish and we'll be back!

Loved this opportunity to experience Iron Fish in a tent! The food and drinks were amazing, and my friend whose birthday we were celebrating loved the experience (as our whole group did)! I had previously been to Iron Fish for a tour and very much enjoyed the staff and drinks, so I wasn't surprised to have such a great experience with at Basecamp. Thank you, Iron Fish for a unique and awesome experience!
