For that last week we have been at Traverse Bay RV Resort on a special rate with the HOOTS group. Pricey but pretty good place. Lots of the areas around Traverse City, Petoskey and Mackinaw are pricey but the area is drop dead gorgeous. Of course, during peak tourist season very busy along the shore lines. If your coach is on the shorter side you could probably find more options.

We also spent time in the U.P. at Escanaba. That was for a Newmar rally and we didn't have to find a place but we look forward to some time there too.

We loved the state parks of Michigan. Many are on beautiful lakes. Check out Burt Lake SP, Otsego Lake SP, Tawas SP, Bay City SP, Rifle River SP, Traverse City SP to name a few. HOWEVER, we tented and used a pop-up camper in these parks. Lots were usually large enough for a MH but I don't know if all updated their services since we left the state (economic problems limited the budget for SP). State park website should be helpful (Michigan.org).
Great suggestions, folks. Thanks. I'm checking out the Michigan State Parks web site now. We will likely spend 2 -3 weeks in MI so we can get in some quality time with family there. The boys are also checking out some state parks near their homes. Several options.

He was in the drivers seat just behind the big steering wheel.

In case you don't frequent the Rainbow thread, I wanted all of our friends that we met at Catherine's Landing to know of the passing of Sam. He was a great dog and was very special to us and those who knew him (he's the one near the tree behind Steve). He lived a great life, 14 1/2 years, and got to travel in his later days He will be missed.

Also, in case you missed it, in May we got Henry. Actually Henry the 8th, our 8th Springer Spaniel. Hopefully you will all get to meet him at the next GC out east here.
