North of Houghton/Hancock we have 230 inches of snow so far. Most of the state parks in the Upper Penisula don't open till May 1st. I was surprised to see some of them open. My TT gets put into storage Nov. 1 and get it out mid April unless I'm planning to head far south for the winter. TOO much winter here!

We're both still working but by taking advantage of our flex schedules we mostly can do 3-4 day weekends and mostly they are in Michigan State Parks.
An exception this year and last is the FROG Rally in Goshen , IN for 6 nights. Over all we try to do 40-50 nights per year.

By the way, we especially like fall camping at Sleepy Hollow SP which is pretty close to you. We made frequent use of that CG when the kids were at State.

We've pretty much figured out that the best we can comfortably do is start the last weekend in Mar and finish up the first weekend in Nov. At least that way we can tell people that camp 9 month out of the year in MI. (not bad IMHO)

Given the year we've been having we're probably going to start the first weekend in Apr this year assuming we can get the camper out from behind the snow bank by then.

But I can tell you that we really burn through the gas trying to keep to our early spring-Late fall camping plan.

If you want to brave the other 3 months of the year, I recommend electric blankets and extra space heaters and don't for get the extra extension cords. Space heaters will use up your 30 amps pretty quick.

Hey!! Eat my words! I'm on a road trip today and what did find? A campground open for business in the middle of winter. It's in Iron River, Mi and it has three campers in it. Looked funny that they snow plowed the sites open.

Outdoor adventure in Davison is open rear round but no water at the sites they will bring it to you or you get it yourself which is what most people do if they do not have to do much work

I see (Campers) north of (Newberry,Mi.) during the winter. They are (Dog Sled People-Mushers).They are self contained/with Gens. They take up a (BIG) area,with each dog in a separate area of their own. Don't think I would want to camp beside them? Youroo!!
