Anywhere near Petosky is great to stay. Petosky is a great little town, and the campgrounds around where great 14 years ago. Hope I spelled Petosky correctly.

So if you want to prove you're a tourist (aside from the camera, fanny pack & sandals w/black sox) pronounce it Mac-eh-NAK & they'll all know you're not from "around there".

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Thanks to all, but especially Wayne. We stayed at lakeshore. It was cheaper than Mill Creek and Koa and we had a nice site with a view of the water. Being in the middle of the country, I try to go places where i can sit and watch the water. I love restaurants/bars on any body of water, be it a lake, ocean, stream, puddle, etc. Lakeshore fit the bill. Many afternoos or evenings we just sat on our site and watched the water. The Mackinac Grill was close by and also was on the water. We crossed the Mackinac bridge 4 times so my bride got her fill of the bridge. Another fine trip. We swam in Lake Michigan 4 times. Great. I had never thought of Michigan as a vacation spot. Great beaches and much closer than either coast. I have a question for the Michiganers. How many 8 mile roads are there in Michigan? And 8 miles from what?????

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Agreed! Currently staying at the KOA Mackinaw City (arrived yesterday-staying a week). It is very nice, level gravel pull thru, lots of trees, free cable TV and WiFi. Weather is very nice, no A/C or heater needed so far but may need the heater this evening. Today we are headed across the bridge to explore.

My wife just likes saying Mack a nack. We tried to blend in but was always given away by the bag of fudge we were carrying. I hear that locals call us "fudgies", especially non-yoopers from Michigan. Tried Joann's fudge. OK, but no where near as good as Murdick's.
