  • Michigan U.P. Presque Isle Campground - Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park

    Presque Isle Campground for four nights in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. Lake Superior is behind us and down about 200 ft from the bluff that the campground sits on. Each night there were only 3-5 tent campers here and 1 or 2 RV's in a campground with nearly 100 sites! This campground is rustic with no power, shower houses or modern bathrooms. The modern campground on the other side of the park was nearly full. No thanks we like it rustic and quite.

    We camped there a few times years ago. Take a walk through the virgin hemlock forest, magnificent.

        With 90 miles of hiking trails we could go back several years! We only touched the surface of this great park. Next trip will need to be a few weeks later to see more color.

          There is also a modern campground called Union Bay which is at the other end of Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.

              What a gorgeous picture of my friend Barkley. This is one that I would frame and put in the living room! Thank you for sharing.

                A modern campground in Michigan State Parks means that you get electricity, no water and no sewer.

                  sounds like South Dakota .... in the SD area there is a thread on Lake Poinsett State Park .... electric only .... we used to spend a couple of weeks a year out there and really enjoyed it
