Stop at the Hilltop Restaurant in L'Anse, great sweet rolls, I know people who drive up there from St. Ignace to get them. Also, in that area, you can scale the "highest mountain" in Michigan Mount Arvon a mind numbing 1,979 feet of elevation.

Mackinaw Island, boats there run from both St. Ignace and Mackinaw City. BTW Motor homes and Pickups pulling Trailers are $5 an axle to cross the bridge each way, but the views from there are awesome.

Don't forget Oswald's Bear Ranch in upper Michigan if you like wildlife. Just google it they have a site. Too bad you can't be in the cage with the little ones anymore it seems.

Depending on the way you take, if you go through Madison there is the Dane county fair, it has some free concerts. Also the taste of Madison is coming up too. Then there is the Wisconsin dells. Tons of stuff to do there. Door county is a great place just passing Green Bay. Take a stop at lambeau field and do a tour of that. We were just in door county in fish creek at fish creek campground. Nice little place with water and electricity on all sites for around $35/ night. Clean place and easy pull through sites. You are in the middle of everything for the whole area. Further up from that you could go to wolf river or Apple river and do some rafting. Also there is copper falls state park which is up in that area you will be in. Tons of things to do heading up this way. Enjoy the trip and have fun.

Ferry to and from Mich. and Wisc.

I was there last summer in August and didn't see a fly. Had a beautiful week in Door County (Bailey's Harbor Campground). Then I took the ferry across Lake Michigan from Manitowoc, Wisconsin to Ludington, Michigan (stayed in Ludington SP there). There were lots of motorhomes on the ferry. They drive your rig on for you (no choice in that) and bring it off for you. Pets must stay in the motorhome. It wasn't cheap but balanced out as it saved me lots of miles and lots of big city driving. It was about a 4 hour trip and fun sitting by the railing and watching the lake go by. Visited the UP a couple of years ago. Beautiful and so nice and cool. Don't miss Mackinaw Island. Have a wonderful trip!

In the UP don't miss Tahquamenon Falls SP & White Fish Point. White Fish Point is on Lake Superior and has a fantastic collection of shells.

Have a safe fun trip.

We are from the LP but like the UP and make a camping trip across the bridge at least once in the summer. Others have wrote about the black flies and they are nasty. They seem to be worse in July but for us they are totaly gone in August. So that is when we go. In the Keewanaw Penninsula there is a lot of history In Fort Wilkins St Park at the nothern tip of the pennisula and in Calumet which was a boom town in the copper era. There are copper mine museums and tours there. The history of the building of the Mac. Bridge is very interesting along with the history of the soo locks. You can take a ferry boat to Mackinaw Island no motor vehicles on the island. Again, a lot of history there. If you like it wild, go to Seney National or Porcupine Mountain SP both are huge. Lake Superior is the greatest of the great lakes in my op. We call it God's bathtub.
