How about a trip around Lake Michigan with stops in:
  • Door County
  • Mackinac island (Lunch at Grand Hotel)
  • Drive across Mackinac Bridge
  • Soo Locks, Sault Ste. Marie
  • Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

X2 on that. Michigan is a great outdoors state both the upper and lower peninsulas. Go down the West side of the Lower Peninsula for beautiful beaches and parks.

Print a map of the mid west, pin it to a wall, close your eyes and throw a dart. Almost anywhere it lands will be good in the summer.......LOL

All depends on what you're looking for. I need to throw something 'fun' into the mix to distract the kids from all the educational, historical, whatever places I try to take them so we're taking the kids here:

That same trip I want to see about stopping by Holland and some of the state parks to take in the beaches on Lake Michigan.

What parts of Iowa and Wisconsin are all of you from? I moved to Iowa from Illinois last year and am up by Dubuque. Just curious as to where all the local Iowa or Wisconsin people like to camp. We have a 3yr old and one on the way so we like to try and keep it kid friendly.

Great to see a lot of Iowans on the board

I'm not sure where in Iowa you are but it takes me about 7 or 8 hours to get there (depending on what I'm driving).
Compton has closed down

I know you can't trust everything you read on the internet but it appears they are under new ownership now and back in business.

Yes, Compton Ridge reopened under new ownership and new management. The campground is now owned by Ocean Canyon Properties.
