Pros: New DISCatcher baskets. Tees were marked with "Camp Walker" signs on the ground. First tee is very well marked. Good variety of holes - open/wooded, uphill, downhill, flat. Not a lot of undergrowth in woods to hide discs.
Cons: Relatively short. Hard to navigate (see below). Little parking (see below). No amenities. Natural pads.
Other Thoughts: The camp is hard to get to (not the course's fault). The day I was there, the bridge was out but fortunately I was on the "right" side of it. The road into the camp is a gravel one-lane with a faded sign which I drove right past the first time. When you get up into this very small park, there is no obvious parking - there is a sign that pointed me to a grassy area right behind basket #8 where there is room for about 2 cars. Since I parked there, I played #9 first but I think from the wrong place (never found the tee for #9). I played a short flat path through a bunch of trees - a fine simple way to start and the only hole not in the woods. Then I saw the big sign that points you to tee #1, The tees are marked by 2 small metal squares that say "Camp Walker" on them - just throw from behind the line connecting them.

Hole #1 is straight uphill in the woods - not my favorite way to start a course. Then the tee for #2 is halfway back down the hill and throws up to a basket on a different small hill. Very sadistic. Hole #3 is flat but the basket sits near the edge of a big downhill and of course my disc decided to roll down there and even jump a log. Hole #4 has a flatter fairway and was a fine hole. Then came #5 - the tee is on the hillside and if you follow the normal situation where you throw in the direction where you can read the "Camp Walker" then the basket should have been somewhere up the hill. I walked up several steep paths and even accidentally played to basket #2 again. Finally I gave up and went to basket #8 (next to my car) and tried to walk the course backwards. I found basket #5 which was at the other side of the park at the bottom of the hill behind some trees meaning that the signs were facing exactly the wrong way. So then I played #5 correctly which has you throwing across the park area so you hope nobody else is there. Number 6 is in the woods and then #7 is a big drop off to the bottom of the hill that you drove up to get to the park. This of course means that number 8 is a big throw back up the big hill which is why I had trouble finding it when walking backwards (I didn't want to search down the huge hill if I didn't know the tee was there). So this course desperately needs a map for first time visitors.

I could see this being a fun course once you learn the holes and they get pads and some parking. The course can't help its location but it's definitely not worth the long trip. Maybe if you pass it on the way to Paw Paw?
