Sounds fun!

Glad I stumbled onto this thread. We driving through the UP on our way home from MN in 2 weeks. We were looking for a CG around Munising. Glad you recommended this one - I hadn't come across it in my search.

Looking forward to it - only wish we had a few more days to explore. Work sure cuts into camping time...

I really like the Mackinaw Mill Campground. Private, but beautiful! Mile or so of beach, views of the Island and the bridge, nice heated pool and shuttles to the ferries. Also, arcade for kids' rainy days!

In the U.P., don't miss the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and the sightseeing there...lots of waterfalls and beaches in addition to the pictured rocks. Absolutely breathtaking area!

I'll second the Munising Tourist Park on the west side of town. (and west side of the c/g! ) That's were i woke up the FIRST day of retirement back in 07. We try to make it up there around Columbus day. Have the place nearly to ourselves! Glass bottom boat is excellent as well as the pictured rocks tours. (and if you saw my earlier post and whitefish addiction... the whitefish @ Sydney's is GREAT! Breakfast too!)

Make sure and plan some time along the way to hit Whitefish Point & the Shipwreck Museum. Great place this time of year!

Hope you brought your sweats! It's been cool up there this week!

elind, you might try the Castle Rock CG just 3 miles north of St. Ignace. A Good Sam park and we just spent a week there and just lovely.

Got it - whitefish sounds awesome - will try that for sure. Shipwreck museum and glass bottom boat tour both look very interesting too.

And I did a double take when I saw the weather link on the CG website. It is still August, right? Think I'll go for sweats X2. Looks like we won't need the AC.

Not sure how much we can squeeze in while in the UP, but we'll get a list going for a return trip. Promised DS we would spend 2 days at the Ford museum in Dearborn. He really wants to tour the F-150 assembly plant and see all of the different exhibits.

Thanks for the tips!
