From Michigan Into Indiana

Sleeping Bear Dunes, MI
From the Bay County Fairgrounds, we headed back west to the shore of Lake Michigan at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Park), MI. We had reservations at Platte River Campground for an electric site. Generators aren't allowed in this campground, but most sites have electricity.

Touring Michigan, Part Two

Mackinac Bridge Viewed From Fort Mackinac
Before leaving Sault Ste. Marie, we toured the Museum Ship Valley Camp. The Museum Ship Valley Camp was built in 1917 and retired in 1966. After 1966, the 550 foot long freighter was permanently docked on historic Water Street and transformed into a museum. The Valley Camp offers more than just a tour of her deck. Visitors can explore the wheelhouse, sleeping quarters, and her cargo hold which now...

Touring Wisconsin

North Point Lighthouse, Milwaukee, WI
After leaving the Sugar Bottom Corps of Engineer Campground in Iowa, we headed north into Wisconsin. This is another state we've never spent the night in, so it gets marked off the "bucket list"! We're now down to only 5 US states left that we've never spent the night in together. Our fist destination in Wisconsin was the Pine View Recreation Area operated by the US Army at Fort McCoy, near Sparta...

Visiting Minnesota and Iowa

Lake Superior North Shore Scenic Drive, MN
Wow! We've picked up the pace and have visited many places in these past couple of weeks! After the Corps of Engineer park near Minot, ND, we moved further east to Grand Forks AFB and stayed in their nice FamCamp (Family Campground). This is a quiet campground located in a back portion of the base. It's the kind of place we enjoy staying at. During our 3-day stay here, we visited the Ronald Reagan...
