If you were coming up later in August, I'd be back from Goshen and at my cottage with my TT on Lake Surerior for camping.
Definetely going here....I love Civil War stuff! Thanks.
You're lucky to call that area home. Outstanding!

So many great campgrounds in the UP. You must go to Fort Wilkins and Fayette. Both are just such amazing places. I will be honest when I say I don't understand why people like Mill Creek. I went once as a kid and we could only have a campfire in a little metal dish. You should check out Wilderness State Park instead. It's. 10 min drive to the bridge and beaches there on Lake Michigan are beautiful. We were there 4 nights last summer.

I forgot to add we are spending a few nights at Muskallonge Lake. I'm really excited to take the kids and my husband to Lake Superior.

I am doing 9 days in Brimley in June. A dozen or so family members have cabins on Lake Superior in Brimley, MI. We will be setting up on my grandparents property about 300 yards west of Brimley State Park. Brimley State Park would be a nice place for you to stay. I lived in the UP for almost 3 years in the mid 90's and spent a couple weeks every year since I was born in the Sault Sainte Marie area, and there isn't a place up there I don't like. Enjoy your trip!

Ask a local about the waterfalls in the area around or near Munising. I has been a while since I was there but I think there are a couple near by.

Camping on UP

Don't forget Copper Harbor! Wilkins St Park is a great place to camp. Marquette we used to camp up north of there in Big Bay, close to Lake Superior.

You will enjoy it. Those 9 days of August are when it stops snowing in the up. I'm a troll from under the bridge. We head to the up every few years a great place. Don't forget to eat some pasties
