Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. Great view of Lake Michigan. Leland, MI. Petoskey, MI. Charlevoix, MI.
It would take a month just to do west side of Lower Michigan. That does not leave much time for the Upper Peninsula or East side of state.

And don't forget to see Pictured Rocks along Lake Superior, as well as the Ghost Town in Fayette on Lake Michigan. There's a BEAUTIFUL State Park sitting up high overlooking a large inland lake called Indian Lake State Park. Simply lovely!!!

It must have recently moved. Last time I was in the Soo a couple of years ago it was still right where it was when I left the area 20 or so years ago.

We lived in MI 30 years ago for about 10 years. We now reside in AR. Last year we went up to Traverse City and stayed at a KOA just south of the city. We did a day trip in the car up to the Leelanau Pininsula. It's about a 60 mile drive up and back and I think there are about 30-40 vineyards with tasting all along the way. There were a lot of good eating places and a lot of small breweries as well. We were there in the middle of Oct. and the CG's were closing about the middle of the month. Don't go on the weekends because of the crowds. We stopped at one wine tasting place and walked right in. The gal said on the weekend they'd be lined up out the door. It was a very nice short trip with beautiful scenery.

Also Hartwick Pines State Park is open all year long and a must stop CG. The CG is absolutely beautiful. You can go on-line and see a picture of what ever sight you pick. There is about a 50 foot strip of woods between most camp sights. We were there the week before Memorial day and there were about 20 campers. The MD week-end it was going to be completely full.

TeJay, So that makes it a winery about every mile and a half. Sounds like a fun day trip!!

Yep!!!!

Well we were told that there were a bunch of wineries in the area some of them do require driving off the beaten path some and since I was with the DW and D sister we didn't do all of them. Also some of the wineries are in the Traverse City area.

We stopped for lunch and I think they had about 40-50 Micro brewery types of beer available. It is a neat place to visit and a neat drive.

If you're considering Copper Harbor (up in the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula) you absolutely must drop your trailer and take the truck along the Brockway Mountain Drive. It runs along the top of a very high ridge between Copper Harbor and Eagle Harbor. One of the most scenic drives in Michigan (or anywhere). If the leaves are turning it should be pretty spectacular, that much better. If the weather is good, you can see water on both sides of the peninsula!

Prior to, on your way to Copper Harbor, you might want to go see Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park. Don't miss Lake of the Clouds, the pine forests that have never been harvested, and the many waterfalls in that area. There's a scenic overlook I remember going to, with about 10,000 steps to get to the top (just about killed me!), but the view was worth it. If you're able, go for it.

Further east, still on M28, Pictured Rocks, out of Munising might be a nice destination as well. From Copper Harbor, run 28 east, through Christmas, and start looking for a county park you don't hear much about, about half way between Christmas and Munising. Google "City Tourist Park, Munisng". Neat place, right on the water, and I doubt there will be more than a handful of RV's there to share it with. Easy (15 min?) drive to Munising/Pictured Rocks from there. As you leave Munising to the east, watch for the road side falls just outside of town. Don't blink twice, they're very small, and right next to the road.

Whitefish Point, with it's lighthouse, Tahquamenon Falls (nice place to spend a night), Paradise, Brimley State park is nice, all those relatively close together, a little north and west of the Soo. Hard to go wrong with any of them.

The Soo locks boat tour is something you won't forget any time soon. Available on both sides. We went from the Canadian side and had a great chat with the Captain.

As you can tel from the responses there are a lot of things to see and do around the great lakes. As I said earlier we lived in that area from 1972-1982 and traveled and camped using tents, popup camper and finally a MH all around the MI area. I've said it before. MI is a great place to visit and camp. There's only one problem and that is the summers are to short. But if you have a mind to there are a lot of things to do during the cooler months but fewer places to camp.

Plenty of room, no crowds, still good weather, well into mid - late September. In fact if anything, the black fly population, which can be a real issue in areas that don't have a pretty good breeze blowing, will be gone as well! Just be prepared for cooler evenings and you should be good to go!

Some of the most fantastic autumn colours are available at the Soo. The Agawa Canyon Tour Train is an all day ride into the Ontario Wilderness and the colours are spectacular. Pricey to some but well worth the shekels it takes.
