U.P. of MI
 
Going for 9 days in August. TENTING. East to West, end to end.

1. Kewl CGs near Mackinac/St. Ignus: (usually go to Millcreek, but looking for options.

2. Tequamina Falls: Have been to state CG there. Anything else really nice?

3. Munising/Pictured Rocks. Any place East or West of Munising within 20-30 mins that is a really nice CG?

4. Porcuppine Mountain/Lake of Cloud: Never been. Where's the best camping.

5. Anywhere a good Cntry/Western place to kick your heels up?

6. Did I miss any "must sees"?

Love water front or access. Love large sites. Love peace and quiet at night.

Thanks for any help planning! :siterock:

Never been.

You may want to spend a night or 2 in the Keweenaw Pennisula. It's where I live. Lots of campgrounds on or near water. Some cool things to check out around here too!

we stayed at the state campground Porkys during our 2 week camping trip, just 2 nights and the sites were pretty good, but the ass 3 down were burning trees (whole trees) in his pit and his kids running around crazy, needless to say it was not enjoyable

2 we stayed at a private in nuberry real nice and quiet, see the bears at oswalds
3. stayed at tourist campground in musining best campground we ever stayed, right on the water 25 feet from the back of the camper (loved the area going back this summer)

make your way to garden and stayed at the state and went to the old town FT wilkins I think

bodzcampers,
Ft. Wilkins State park, Copper Harbor is a super place to camp. There's an old civil war era fort, light houses, a tourist town, and a National Park with copper mining history along the way. I worked the 4 country area delivering snack foods for 36 years and can give you details on hot spots. PM me if you have questions. If you were coming up later in August, I'd be back from Goshen and at my cottage with my TT on Lake Surerior for camping.

copper harbor is a real nice campground, brockway MT is awesome, eagle harbor is just down the road and a real nice drive, also check out the copper mine tour in the area (cant remember the name)
