Sault Ste Marie to Muskallonge State Park, MI

Hello everyone,

We are planning on traveling from Sault Ste Marie to Muskallonge State park in the UP of Michigan and would like to get a recommendation for a route.

It looks like the safest route is 28 west to H37 North. Has anyone traveled through Paradise than west along the roads bordering Lake Superior? If yes can you drive a 45 foot coach towing a car? Are the roads paved along the lake or are they dirt? The legend on the Michigan map I have states these are unpaved roads.

Thanks for your help,

Stuart

Paved all the way. 28 to 123 north through Newberry (get diesel at Shell station south edge of town) then motor on up to Rt 407(CR-37) turn west all the way to state park. You won't have any trouble with a big rig.

By the way, you will probably only have 30amp, and no water or sewer, unless they have done some major improving recently. Maneuvering is barely OK for a really big rig, so I suspect dropping the toad at the park gate check-in is the best idea.

Lake is shallow, and great for pike fishing in the reeds. Nice sandy beach.

Most of those roads along superior are washboard, dirt, rock, not suitable at all for a large rv unless you want to drive at about 10mph. What you can do is take 28 across then go up 221 to Brimely/Bay Mills. Take lakeshore drive all the way to 123. Take 123 up through paradise, then down toward Newberry. Catch 407 north of Newberry. Lakeshore drive is very scenic and paved, etc.

Thanks everyone for your responses. We stayed on the major paved roads and arrived there without a hitch. On another note, once we arrived at Muskallonge Lake State park it took us three attempts to find a site that was level enough for us. It was a bit harrowing navigating tight turns, low tree branches and other campers but we were successful with site #123, a pull through. On the positive side we did offer lots of entertainment to our neighboring campers!!!!

We are having a great time in the area.
