Wish we were there along side you! M is a great site, we were at R on the corner, huge site.

Life Without Whine, very catchy! You hit on one of our favorite "small" things we absolutely love about camping is morning coffee outside! Its a great tag team to ending the night before with a campfire.
I see,,, one of the new Full Hooks Up sites,,, looks very large !!!

Sherman. I'm just curious. I've stayed at almost every state park in Michigan including Wilderness and unless you are camped at the host site which most state parks have (requires staying 30 days or more and volunteer time) there are only 4 state parks with full hookups, South Higgins Lake SP, Hartwick Pines SP, Sterling SP, and Holland SP. How did you get a full hookup site?

We like to see all the attractions when we travel and take in the local culture. But on each trip I always plan for one day to just hang out. Usually the first day there to finish set up and relax. We also like a day that we can spend hiking or doing something with our dogs. They are on vacation too!

Being signed up to the Michigan email newsletter I got an email announcing that the Michigan DNR added 13 full hook-up sites at Wilderness that just opened this summer. They are in the process of building a new comfort station too because part of this expansion are some really great tent sites off to one end of the new Alphabet section and they have a long walk to either a shower or flush toilets.

The new full hook sites look pretty nice,,, pretty much full sun @ this point !!! And I don't think the sites are as large as some of the sites in the old park !!!

I could never understand the reasoning of putting the comfort stations closer to the R.V.'s and tent further away. The tents are after all the ones who needs them. I remember when we were in line (newbie) for the dump station and a guy with young kids says that if there is not a full hook up, no one can poop in the camper. Yet at this campground unless you pitch a tent in an RV site, but all of the tent sites were walk in and far, far, away from the comfort stations. When tent camping, I have found unpleasant surprises in camp and it was not from dogs.

Like others we use our tt as a mobile motel room. We keep planning on spending some down time in it just relaxing but it never ends up that way. We usually end up using it as a place to crash - just eating and sleeping in it. Hopefully one of these days we'll have some time to just sit and relax but I wouldn't count on it, it's a big country and there's just too much to see and do. cincia
