I would suggest that you travel through the UP, cross into Canada at Port Huron/Sarnia, head to Ontario Hwy 401, through Toronto, and cross into the US at I81. You'll end up near Syracuse, the Finger Lakes, etc. The only issue is that Toronto traffic is very heavy and is one of the more congested cities in North America. If you want to stay in Toronto, there is a good campground called Indian Line near the airport.
If you travel on the Canadian side from the UP area, some of the roads are not that great, but the scenery is pretty good.
