Condition of Hwy 131 North from Grand Rapids, MI

We are staying at an RV park near Grand Rapids, MI and will be leaving in about 3 weeks. Our best (i.e., shortest) route to get to our next RV park is to take Hwy 131 north from Grand Rapids. Yet, Hwy 131 south of Grand Rapids is/was a series of constant bumps and pot holes; really the worst roads we have encountered. Does anyone know the current (i.e. summer 2018) condition of Hwy 131 north of Grand Rapids? Is it better than the road south of Grand Rapids? We are going to Hartwick Pines State Park near Grayling, MI. If you have traveled the highways of Michigan this year, any suggestions for an alternate route without so many bumps and pot holes would be appreciated. Thanks

131 north of GR is in a lot better shape than south of GR. There is some construction until you get north of Rockford but after that you have clear sailing. I am on that stretch of road 2 or 3 times a week. If you like to 2 lane. take 131 to exit 120 take hwy 46 to 66 go north to hwy 55 go east to hwy 127 go north to interstate 75 north to Gaylord. This is very scenic. Remember it is the journey not the destination. Where are you staying now? We are at Hidden Ridge near Hopkins.
