This was a wonderful experience for our family. The food was enjoyed by adults and the toddler, the drinks were delicious, and the service was top notch. We had a great family outing and were cozy and warm in our tent. We can’t wait to come 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!

Best thing we've done in 11 months! Food was on point, the service was amazing, staff were SO nice, the atmosphere was amazing. this 40 year old mom was so happy she was looking at tik tok thanks to her teens and saw this come up! Well worth the $15 reservation fee! Also COVID measures were amazing. We haven't been out to dinner in a year, this was our first try, it was the BEST!!!!

The whole experience was above par. The staff was friendly and efficient, the food and drinks were yummy and teepee was inviting. Only thing I would suggest is no metal chairs in the teepees even if they are covered. In our northern michigan winter it was a bit cold on the booty. Grateful for the wooden chairs for sure!
