Suggestions for campgrounds in N Dakota, Wisconsin & Michigan

Presently in Rapid City S Dakota and head to Goshen IN.
Need some suggestions for campgrounds in N Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin then over the top of Michigan

We are wanting to stay a few weeks here and there on our way to the FROG rally. We plan on heading to Soux Falls then north into N Dakota the east into Wisconsin. From there we plan on going into Michigan from the far north then south to Goshen.

We are looking for full hookups and if the campground has trees. (lol) we may stay a week or more. Like to hear your suggestions.

Also we are travelling with Ramair and if anyone wants to join us on the trip to Goshen please contact me and maybe we can hook up on the way.

Iggy

Iggy, Are you thinking about cutting across the U.P. of Michigan and south at the Big Mac bridge. That way you miss Chicago and the traffic. Houghton/ Hancock has a couple of small city full hookups CG and Copper Harbor has a full hook up. The way along Lake Superior has a few nice F/U CG also. Marquette has the Tourist Park with some F/U with shade. If you spy upon something online you can PM me. There are a couple I would stay away from on past experience.

ps Door county, Wi. is a great place also.

IGGY:
We are in Minot, ND. at a nice little RV park, Roughrider Campground. We plan to spend 4 nights here, using the truck to sightsee. Today we will go to the International Peace Garden. It is 2.5 hours away so it will be a long day. Along the way will will stop at the geographical center of North America and also stop to see a 300' turtle made from truck tire rims ( how could you not want to see that?).
Tomorrow is laundry day, nice facilities here, and I need some work done on the truck.
You might consider coming to visit us!

When we leave here we plan ride the river road from Keiler, WI to Prescott, WI, then to the UP.

Thanks for the suggestion but I think we plan on going over the top to UP Michigan.

Nice route maybe on our return trip.
Thanks

It is pretty on the UP and lots to see and do. Be sure to stop in Munising at Muldoons and have a Pasty. Also consider taking the Picture Rocks boat tour for spectacular views of the rocks. The evening cruise is best. It is also in Munising.

Be sure you have lots of mosquito repellant while you are in the UP.

Camp Holiday in Boulder Jct., WI is first-rate. Great full hookup sites with cable. Wonderful folks run the place. Just a beautiful area with super rec trails, not far from the U.P.

If your planning on stopping at all in Fargo ND., they have a nice little campground within city limits along the Red River with a lot of mature trees. I think some full hookups? Just a bit east of the I29 & I94 intersection. I think it's called Roger Maris Park.

We like to stay at Hi-Pines in Eagle River, WI when we head to the Northwoods. It's a great area with lots of hiking trails and such. Very close to the UP as well.

A post I had for another RVer.

Welcome to the U.P. of Michigan, home of the Yoopers! The Keweenaw (Copper Country) is home to copper miners from 1900's and all the little towns were mining locations where the miners lived and worked. Calumet is now part of a National Park that the population was over 100,000 in 1900.
I have a favorite circle tour that starts at US 41 in Hancock, thru Calumet, turn on M26 at Phoenix, follow the lake shore till the turn off to Brockway Mt. Drive, and to Copper Harbor. Copper Harbor has shops, motels, and restaurants to spend time at for the afternoon. Heading back south, take US 41 thru the covered road till the Lac LaBelle turn off and follow the county road into Gay, Mi. the home of the GAY BAR. Then to M26 Lake Linden and back to Hancock. Along the way are a couple of under ground mine tours, The Calumet Theater (built before 1900), old copper mines locations, Fort Wilkins built in 1846, the Keweenaw Lodge built by the WPA, light houses, Mt. Bohemia ski hill, and towns built around the 1900's. I may even take a ride to the fort for a couple of days this next week or so.
If you need more info, I'm a mile south of Chassell on US41 with the Wildcat in the yard.
