Forests, lakes, waterfalls, beaches, streams, sand dunes, ponds, and abundant wildlife are all a part of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
We continued our adventure in Munising, MI, along Lake Superior’s southern shore. I called ahead to the campground to ask about available spots and the campground informed me that someone had just made a cancellation on a waterfront site! This isn’t the first time this has happened.
For instance, we used to live near Refugio Beach State Park in California. It’s a gorgeous campground right on the Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, it books up a year in advance. While our busy schedules wouldn’t allow us to make reservations that far in advance, we could always get by calling and and asking about cancellations. People’s plans change all the time and if you are consistent (and polite) you’re bound to get a spot at some of the busiest campgrounds… or in this case one of the few lakefront spots!
Lake superior is the largest, coldest, and deepest of all the Great Lakes. It’s beautiful to behold and we were so excited that it was right in our backyard!
