We’ve heard stories about summer bugs in certain parts of the country…now we know. What an introduction we had at Tawas Point State Park along Michigan’s east coast. The campsites were large and lush, the showers were clean and modern and the nature walk was a birdwatcher’s dream. If only we could have enjoyed it a little bit more.
We packed up Friday morning and waved goodbye to the Great Lakes Region of the country. Needing an overnight stop on our way south into Ohio, we reserved a place with another Harvest Home member. We have found these stays to be easy, fun and a nice break from the typical campground experience.
Charming Mackinac Island sits in Lake Huron, just off the east coast of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Established in 1895, it’s Michigan’s first state park and offers something for everyone…except car enthusiasts. The automobile ban began in 1898 and remains in effect today. Visitors see the park on foot, bike, horse or in one of the horse-drawn carriages or taxis.
