Looks like a lot of good info, we are headed for Sault Ste. Marie MI Labor day for about 10 days, staying at Aune Osborn along the St. Marys River. We will try and use some of this info.

Lots of Casinos with RV parks and fly fishing for trout in the UP. Other types of fishing as well. I love the area so much that I have a RV lot that I own in Cedarville. I look forward to spending many summers and early fall there. Gods Country. You can easly avoid Detroit but to see the Tigers play the Yankees in Detroit would be nice.

Spend a little time watching the boats go thru the Soo Locks, Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, Tach and Bond Falls. On the east side if you go up the Keweenaw pennsula, there are alot of copper mining related stuff, light houses and at the end, An old fort (can't read the neme with my present glasses).

I like to visit Munising Michigan. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on the shore of Lake Superior is very nearby. Munising has an older municipal campground that is right on the shore of Lake Superior. It wouldn't be allowed that close any more but it is grandfathered in. It has 30 amp electric and water. There is a dump staion on the grounds also.

If you happen to be a scuba diver, there is good wreck diving out of Munising. There is a variety of wrecks and they are not too deep.

I was just at the Whitefish Point lighthouse and Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum. It was interesting but a long way from anywhere.

I visited Sault St Marie last year and found the lock system very interesting. If you hit that, you may want to hit Whitefishpoint as you start your journey east.

Happy camping!

That is so true and that is what I like about it also.

If you make it East just before Superior Wisc. you can head north to Bayfield and the Apostle Islands. A very popular area.
