My use of "up the Keweenaw" was referring to how far up the peninsula we go.
I might be turning around in Pelkie if things aren't going well.

I don't consider anything south of the bridge the Keweenaw though it technically begins at the bottom of the bay in Baraga. Got to take him at least as far as the lift bridge. Copper Harbor. Brockway Mountain Drive. Toni's Country Kitchen for pasty. The Gay Bar for Spam-N-Cheese sandwiches.

Camping or motels/hotels?

I'll probably heist son #2's duramax and p/u camper for the trip. When taking my kids out it was sleeping in the back of the 'Burb and a tent but I'm not up for that anymore.

Tent camped with my four kids a few times when they were all under 10. Was fun chaos. The pop-up eventually made camping so much easier.

Mom and pops prevail.....the wood bundles are big business for some up here.

Firewood changes coming to Michigan state park campgrounds

Campers at Michigan state parks this year will likely see a trio of changes when it comes to the firewood bundles available for sale at the campgrounds.

Last year, there was grumbling among both the tent and RV crowds when Michigan Department of Natural Resources' leaders said they were working on new restrictions that might mean campers would have to buy their firewood in the park from an approved vendor, or bring in only wood that was certified as heat-treated for emerald ash borer.

Many in the state's large camping contingent were not happy at the possibility they might be told they couldn't bring firewood from home, or snag a few bundles from the mom-and-pop vendors that dot the roads leading to the parks.

I was in North Carolina a couple of weeks back.. had some great pictures, not from state parks (though one was in a national park), but just from various mountain rivers, hikes, etc. Truly about 5-6 miles from my parent's house.

Hell I'd never heard that but you're right.   I hadn't been there since I was a teenager or younger.   They're damned pretty.

Michigan's Tahquamenon State Park and "The Root Beer Falls"

The amber-colored Upper Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan's Upper Peninsula earned their nickname of "Root Beer Falls" for their resemblance to a cascade of root beer tumbling over a nearly 50-foot drop.

Interesting part of that story on how the BrewPub that Pantry asked about got there....

A popular stop for many park visitors, especially after scaling the steps to and from the falls, is Camp 33, a restaurant and brew pub near the trail to the Upper Falls.

Logging played an important part in the settlement of the area during the late 1800s, and restaurant founders Jack and Mimi Barrett established it to resemble a vintage logging camp. The couple purchased land next to Tahquamenon Falls in the late 1940s when you could only reach the falls by boat. Jack Barrett worked to get an access road to the falls and negotiated with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to sell the land to Michigan, requiring that the state open it as a state park and retain most of its wilderness character.

The state accepted Barrett's terms and paid him $1 for his land, with the exception of a 2-acre plot that Camp 33 now occupies.

I'd say that has to be one of the best one-dollar investments ever made by the State of Michigan!

The Barrett family rebuilt Camp 33 in the 1990s, with Jack and Mimi's grandchildren establishing the Tahquamenon Falls Brewery and Restaurant in 1996.

From wiki:
Tahquamenon Falls is also called Rootbeer Falls because of its golden-brown color, caused by tannins from cedar swamps that drain into the river. In winter, the ice that accumulates around and in the falls is often colored in shades of green and blue.

More from Tahquamenon

Flooding closes part of Tahquamenon Falls State Park

The Michigan State Parks Thread - Page 5 Tah-riverjpg-2c82cf687656c82c

PARADISE, MI - Staff at Tahquamenon Falls State Park have closed the popular River Trail temporarily after high water made the area impassable.

Spring runoff has led to high river levels and flooding along the 5-mile trail, which runs parallel to the Tahquamenon River between the Upper and Lower Falls.

"The spring flows have not subsided and there are several sections of trail which are underwater and have become quite hazardous," the Michigan Department of Natural Resources said about the closure.

The color of Tahquamenon is unique. Never been to another falls like it. Bob needs to put it in his bucket list of places to see if he ever goes Up North.

Looks like a helluva lot of water there now

Didn't know this....and yes it's a National Park but close enough.

Park Service to manage surge in Pictured Rocks visitors

Munising, Mich. – The National Park Service is seeking public input on how to manage a dramatic increase in visitors to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The lakeshore’s superintendent, Dave Horne, said the number of visitors has doubled over the last five years. Nearly 800,000 people visited the lakeshore during its peak seasons in 2017, according to a report from the National Park Service.

Visitors spent roughly $33 million in local gateway regions last year, the report found, but crowding and overuse can risk visitors’ safety and degrade the quality of the local shoreline, trails and roads.

We have property there and have been dreading this. They paved a roughly 30 mile stretch that used to be gravel between buck hill (Beaver lake) and Grand Marais. We knew this would bring in tourism. It use to be so quiet and no people when we would hunt and fish the area. We also use to fush Beaver Lake alot and limit out on the walleye. They had a 9hp limit on the lake and it was perfect. Now the banned them and its electric only and a long haul from little beaver to big beaver and you need two batteries. they want the area to be for hikers and kayaks only. It really pissed us off. Plus they stopped stocking the lake as well. Fishing has steadily gone down hill ever since. So as a property owner we're not happy about this surge in visitors.

Hey AU, getting ready today for another weekender trip. It made me think of this - if you;re looking for another place to camp that always has spots let me tip you off to kind of a hidden gem.

$15 a night with electricity, $10 w/o. Right on the AuSable. Spacious lots. Usually 1/2 full or less so lots of privacy and room. You can put a canoe or Kayak in at Parmalee and float to the park in 30 minutes or so. Or you can put in at the Park and float down to the Whirlpool or the Camp 10 bridge.

We're headed to a small lake near here for some fishing and swimming.

Wait until you're a little older. In my late teens and early 20's I laid a sleeping bag on the ground next to my truck. Every 5 years or so you seek a bit more comfort.

One main extension cord running in and then one running out to run the lights out front. Only thing plugged in the tent was the lights, a fan, and phone chargers. The orange one ran to the screen tent and the light one was the neighbors.

Want a sticker AU?

Book now to camp during the official May 12 birthday weekend

On May 12, 1919, the Michigan Legislature established the Michigan State Park Commission, paving the way for Michigan's state parks system. Fast forward to today and Michigan is home to 103 state parks, as well as the many campgrounds, boat launches, swimming beaches, fishing piers, trails and lighthouses found in those parks. The centennial is a nod to our rich history and an energizing look forward, and we're marking this milestone year with special events, podcasts, historical stories, videos, geocaching and lots more.

Campers and day-trippers, if you’re as excited as we are about this once-in-a-century celebration, why not camp with us around the May 12 anniversary date of Michigan state parks? Or pack a picnic lunch, grab your hiking shoes, bike or paddle and spend a day exploring.

The official 100-year anniversary will fall on the weekend of May 10-12, which means that the six-month window to make camping reservations for that weekend opens tomorrow. Plus, all camping parties will receive a complimentary commemorative bumper sticker upon arrival.

Pick your favorite park or one that’s new to you! Make camping reservations on the revamped reservation website at midnrreservations.com or call 800-447-2757.

Pick your favorite park or one that’s new to you! Make camping reservations on the revamped reservation website at midnrreservations.com or call 800-447-2757.

I'll just come stay with you that early in the spring.
