Welcome to Cottonwood Resort, located on Wildwood Beach Rd in Quincy Michigan as part of the Branch County Park System. Our campground is on the first lake of The Chain of Lakes that is 17 miles long approximately 780 acres with boat launches, restrooms, picnic facilities and public beaches. At least seven lakes all on a wide and deep channel for large boats.

Cottonwood Resort offers nearly 100 campsites with modern facilities on Marble Lake. We have five cottages with two and three bedrooms, fully furnished kitchens, boat rental, sandy beach for swimming, store with food and bait/tackle, recreation hall with pool table, video games, evening activities. Pets welcome on leashes.


The whole Marble Chain of lakes system has a healthy population of bass up in the 16- to 18-inch mark. There is very diverse vegetation available, including bulrushes, lily pads and cattail wetlands, which encourages bass growth. In Marble Lake itself the fish are in the 10- to 14-inch range because the lake is deeper and colder, and the rate of growth is slower. The other lakes in the chain have both good numbers and growth rates of bass.

The Marble Chain east of Interstate 69 and south of U.S. 12 includes Coldwater, Wright, East, Middle, Archer and Marble lakes, and it covers over 3,500 acres of widely varying habitat. Deep coldwater haunts are connected by channels to shallow pond-like environments where the largemouths can pick and choose.

Coldwater Lake is the largest in the chain at 1,610 acres. Shallow spawning areas in the southern section of the lake like Peninsula Beach are spring hotspots. Access is off Waxson Road on the northwest corner.

Marble is the next largest lake at 780 acres. The northern tip warms up quickly in the spring. Boaters will find access at the west end of Wildwood Road about midlake on the eastern side.

The other waters in the chain have limited access, with the exception of a ramp off the channel between Marble and Middle lakes. These waters offer a nice combination of deep water and weedy shallows where bass thrive on the abundant panfish. Taking the time to venture into these smaller lakes can lead to some great spring bassing.
