Awesome thanks! I was not aware until this year that some of our state parks are open year round and plow out sites. I am on a mission to hit all of our state parks and love the idea of viewing some in the winter.

It depends on what part of Michigan your talking about. South by Detroit? North by Houghton, load your snow blower in your toyhauler.

LOL see us trolls always think of Houghton as in the lake. If we mean the REAL HOUGHTON we add Michigan to the end. Im saving Houghton, Michigan for this summer. Im not your typical blonde lol

This winter you need the snowblower even to the south. This Jan we've had >96 cms of snowfall. I used to not mind winter.... Now I hate it.

Most of the Michiganers who winter camp do it in Florida.

really thinking of winter camping in that trailer, you will use a bottle of propane in 2 days, dont think soft sided campers insulate very good, carrying water everyday would also suck. we live in the middle of the state and their is no way I would want to camp this winter, never knew a few SP were open year round
