We stayed at Mill Creek in the extra large sites there longer and in newer part of campground. If your looking for an adventure head up to Crisp Point light , it's a rough 15 mile gravel and sand only as soon as you turn off main road but worth the trip.

We stayed at Lakeshore Park in St. Ignace. Quiet park with views of the lake. Free shuttle service to the island. While visiting Niagara we stayed at Fifty Point Conservation Area in Grimsby On. It's like our state parks. We found the Canadian side of the fall more scenic. Beware of toll road 407, tolls are very high. We have the passport cards and crossing the border both ways was easy and no problems. We did this trip last June, pm if more info is needed.

Take a look at this thread-- Suggestions Niagara Falls

Several of us here on FRF have stayed at Four Mile Creek NY state park.
It's close, cheap and easy access to the Canadian side.

Also if you are any sort of hikers at all you should consider the NY side
of the river. There is a trail that takes you right up the river nearly at
water level past the rapids and all the way to within sight of the rainbow
bridge.

Also Four mile creek is just up the road from the power station that has a
wonderful visitor center where they have models and displays that show how
they shut off the water at night and channel it to generate power.
Really a great stop for a couple hours.

Four Mile Creek is an excellent state campground with around 233 campsites. The 200 loop is the best bunch of sites with some providing great views of Lake Ontario and on clear days Toronto Canada. Charming town of Lewiston is 8 miles away with great restaurants, shops, brew pub and supermarket. Your stay at Four Mile also gets you in to Fort Niagara State Park which sits on the banks of the Niagara River at the mouth of Lake Ontario. Niagara Falls is about 14 miles from Four Mile. Your easiest route to Michigan from NF would be crossing into Canada at the Rainbow Bridge in Lewiston, 6 miles from Four Mile and taking the Queen Elizabeth Way or QEW to Hamilton and hook up to I believe the 403 expressway heading towards London, Ontario and Port Huron. As suggested you will need a passport or enhanced drivers license for entry not so much into Canada, but more so back into the U.S. We went up to Hamilton last summer with our rig and had less questions and hazzle than when we go by car to visit family in Stoney Creek, Ontario. Previous post was correct about fruit and veggies, though that was never asked of us. Definitely no guns and alcohol shouldn't be a problem if their isn't an excessive amount on board. Before you re-enter the U.S. at Port Huron their would be a duty free shop at the border anyways. Looking at going to Michigan ourselves this July but don't know if our travels will take us up to the U.P. However, I'll be saving this thread for the campground suggestions just in case.

Wilderness State Park is adding about 18 full hookup sites, available at the end of June this year. If you go to Tahquamenon Falls make sure you rent the rowboat for a very short trip at the Lower Falls. You can get out and walk on a small island that the river flows around and has beautiful mini falls that you cannot see from the mainland.

If you are adventurous the trip from the UP thru the Soo into Canada then around the north channel you can catch a ferry at South Baymouth that takes you across the Georgian Bay to Tobermory. It is one of the most scenic trips I have ever been on. Ferry takes trucks and trailers no problem. About a 4 hour trip. Then the Canadian side of Lake Huron is also a beautiful drive. From the Bruce peninsula you get on HWY 6 that takes you down to Hamilton then HWY 8 to St Catharines to Niagara Falls.

Sounds like a great way to go. How expensive is the ferry?

We stayed at Wilderness State Park last year in early July. Close to Mackinaw but out of town a bit so it was nice and quiet. We were waterfront and had a great time.
