If you are thinking of the slide area of I-75 at the TN/KY border all of that has been cleaned up for a couple of weeks now.

Straits State Park in the UP on the north end of the bridge has many sites... not full hook up but water and electric and great views of the bridge at night. May places to eat near the camp.

We stayed at the KOA there last summer. It's nice and well kept. The owners are friendly and very helpful.

I wouldn't worry about the bridge. We have crossed it many times with a trailer. Worst time was with a 40 mph cross wind. They will then escort you at 20 mph or slower. No problems even in a cross wind.

Seriously crossing the bridge is just part of the adventure If you are coming to the UP any time just be prepared to slow down to a speed that you are comfortable with on the bridge. I do like using the outer concrete lanes instead of the inner grated lanes when pulling a tt. because of the unusual wind effects on the grates
Most of the time it is completely uneventful. The convoys are used to assure that people do slow down to a safe speed 20 mph when needed due to weather conditions because it works. Anyone who drives as far as you plan to can cross the bridge. I would second rsdata' suggestion for Strait's State Park at least as a starting point. It will depend on your interests while in the UP if you should relocate from there. Finally, on the worst trips the highway travel was worse than the bridge travel
