We don't have many "truck stops" in the UP but diesel is everywhere. Don't worry "come on up".

I have an RV lot that I own in Cedarville, MI, UP, and while the UP is rural, there are lots of places to buy diesel. It will be more expensive then Texas. Hope you enjoy it there we sure do, you can't beat the summer time weather when compared to SE Texas. Good Luck and Happy Trails

Michigamme Shores Campground is a very nice campground. Google them. West of Marquette on highway 28/41. We have stayed there a few times. You will probably want to make reservations
