    Yankee Springs CG / Hastings, Mi

    August 29 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 86 °F

    We stayed here because it was Saturday night and Holland and Kzoo parks were booked. No pics. Site 2 was nice. Not as cramped as many of the other sites in this campground. I was once again reminded that I’m out of shape going up hill on a bike.Read more

    Holland SP

    August 27 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 77 °F

    I didn’t take many photos here. Spent time helping family. The SP is actually in a great location. We stayed 3 nights on the beach end and 2 nights in the wooded area. Beach: pro is the proximity to the lake, beach and sunsets, saw an amazing storm roll in. The con is the parking lot camping. Wooded: pro is tree shade and space, con is still not secluded for wooded spots.Read more

    Marquette, MI / Tourist Park CG

    August 19 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 81 °F

    Getting to enjoy more of Marquette was always something we wanted to do. It’s a fun town. Brewery stops and biking. Farmer’s Market and a little shopping too. A nice CG with a bike path to get you anywhere in town you need.Read more

    Porcupine Mtns

    August 16 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    Now that we’ve experienced the grandeur of Montana and Wyoming terrain, the U.P. is just the U.P. But I won’t discount that this area during peak fall season would be magical to see. And so much green! And the water is high, not depleted of resources. I see it with a new reverence and sense of gratitude. The hikes we chose to do were spectacular. One along. A river with beautiful waterfalls, a small island and sunset on Lake Superior. Another high above the summit peak and then down to remote lakes and serene back country camping spots. Believe it or not, it’s the first time I’ve seen the bear poles in use. Lake Superior is beautiful!!!Read more

    Big Snow HH - Lost Ski Resort

    August 14 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 70 °F

    A ski resort stuck in the 1970’s but also a perfect HH stay. They had a bar and restaurant that is the quintessential small town Michigan bar. Tyson had the worst pizza ever and I had the Saturday night delight of Prime Rib.Read more

    We decided to chance a FC/FS spot on a Friday afternoon. Never a good idea. The first two cg’s in Ashland were full. So was the one we checked in Washburn, WI BUT they had a cheap overflow camping area with awesome views. Old friends on their way to Isle Royal NP stopped in for a random visit. So much fun to see old friends in this small town on the coast of Lake Superior. In the morning, we enjoyed the lake, took a bike ride to the other FCFS campground to check it out, and did some outdoor strength training, & filled up on fancy outdoor water (artesian well) in our CG. I realized that checking out CGs is my thing. I think it’s b/c I do so much research and reading of reviews. I want to scope out other CGs to make sure I made the right choice. 😂 In this case, all the FCFS CGs in Ashland or Washburn are terrific choices. Oh, I almost forgot the BEST PART which is we saw Santa! Maddie sweetly asked him if he was Santa on vacation. He chuckled and said why yes I am. Have you been good this year? ❤️💚❤️💚Read more
