Campground suggestions in MIchigan

I tried this already and hope 2 posts don't show up. We plan to travel to Michigan (Pictured Rock Nat'l Lakeshore, St. Ignace or Mackinac, and Sleeping Bear Dunes) in mid to late September. Does anyone have favorite campgrounds in any of these areas? Full hook-ups are not a necessity, but we prefer electicity and water. Thanks in advance for any help. Also do most of the Michigan campgrounds close the end of September?

RE: Need advice for towing downhill....

Lots of good advice on a difficult subject. You have really hit on the technical aspects. But...if your wife is a nervous passenger like I am, my advice for her is to close her eyes, read a book, play a game. I can't help him drive but I can and have added to his stress, so I try to keep busy.

RE: How do you hang your bath towels?

We bought a towel rack that has two hook things that go over the shower and the towel rack hangs from that. I hang both of our towels from that.

RE: Anybody flush their black tank with a hose onto the ground?

Our camping friends & family think we could write a book about what we have seen at dump stations. We do understand the issues with diseases, but laugh anyway...probably inappropriately. Just a few highlights: There was the guy who suddenly put both hands on his TT and started pushing it really hard, we guess he was trying to shake the sh...out of the camper. Then there was the guy who dropped his dump hose down the drain, and dived on the ground threw his arm down the hole up to his shoulder...but that hose was gone. Then there was the lady who left the valves open and pulled away draining all manner of things. Sorry...I'll stop.

RE: Must Have, Don't Need

1. We have a complete bathroom, not a sink or shower outside the bathroom and would never want to give that up. 2. Wish we did not have a back door, but a mid door. 3. We have a smaller 5th wheel so there is not much we would want to do without. We do not use the TV or radio/CD player much. 4. Do not have or want w/d or d/w 5. We do not have a fireplace, don't want one, or a full kitchen. We have 3 burners and a sink outside and that is enough. When we are at the ocean or shore - DH cooks his seafood stuff outside. Best wishes on your search.

RE: Camp site selection

We look for tree limbs, check if slides can open, prefer outside site that has an open field or woods behind if possible. If possible, not crowded with boats, extra cars, extra tents on nearby site.

RE: What's wrong with bumper sewer hose storage???

We've always used the bumper and as someone mentioned, we put the hinge type "door" on and that works great.

RE: Atta Boy to Akron CW

We bought our 5th wheel from Sirpilla CW which I am pretty certain is the dealership mentioned here. The salespeople were great. Our experience with service has been...well...fortunately my husband can do any service so far that we need. Our friend had new Passport TT there twice for a problem with the slide. The first time they did not fix it right, my husband told our friend what had to be done and he took it back. Six weeks later, after contacting Marcus it was finished correctly this time.

RE: DH had open heart surgery yesterday

Prayers for a speedy recovery and comfort to you as a care giver. BillandCarole, prayers for you also. My sister-in-law had a valve replacement last July. It was a tough time, but now she feels great. Best Wishes!

RE: My dog is not a threat.

While reading this post and the responses, I started thinking about the responses and comparing them with dog breeds, so I did some research and this is what I came up with. (Joking here - so keep your sense of humor.) Responses are... 1. Aggressive, angry and grumpy - Like UNTRAINED Pit Bulls or Chihuahuas 2. Funny - Like a Puli 3. Kind and caring - Like Labs, Bichons, or Bulldogs 4. Easy going - LIke Cavelier King Spaniels 5. Intellegent helping us learn - Like Australian Cattle Dogs and Border Collies. * Remember that individual dogs won't always fit the discriptions I found. Remember, just joking!

RE: I'd Appreciate Your Advice

Sorry I can't say just two since I am not sure what your interests are - Ohio has some great museums (COSI, Wright Pat, Great Lakes Science Center). If you love football, The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton Ohio, if rock and roll is your thing, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, if you love "rides" Cedar Point is great. Amish Country in Holmes and Tuscarawas County has woodwork, crafts and lots of food. Enjoy your trip!!

RE: Cost of your hobby

We've never been asked that question. We love traveling, hiking, biking, Nat'l Parks, mostly dislike cities and hotels. If we were asked to calculate the cost we would also have to try to figure in the cost benefits of hiking, biking and all the exercise, stress relief we experience in the outdoors, relaxing at night by a fire, listening to rain on the 5th wheel roof at night, recalling all the memories we have given our children. Those items are significant when looking at health, wellness, motional and mental health. In other words - in our lives camping is priceless.

RE: Don't have a bucket list, do it now!

loulou - My thoughts and prayers are with you and your friend's family. We don't have a bucket list, but made the decision not to wait to retirement to do what we could afford. We don't want to wake up some day and say, "We wish we would have done this or that," so we have done it. Except - DH would love to have a Suzuki Hayabusa. Sometimes he needs to be reined in!

RE: An added bonus for us while at Assateague Statae park!

We have not been to Assateague for many years. Our kids were young and we loved it. We had a pop-up at the time, and first thing in the morning when I unzipped the end flap a pony was poking his nose right against the screen. Great memories - have a wonderful time.

RE: Things to do in/about Holmes Co., Ohio

Everything listed above plus, The Christmas Store halfway between Sugarcreek and Berlin. If you are traveling with children, Rolling Ridge Ranch is a stop where you can ride a wagon and feed many animals, water buffalo, zebras etc. Hershbergers on the way to Charm has animals kids can pet. Lehman's hardware is my favorite stop.

RE: Towing with Full Water Tank?

It took a lot of convincing but we fill tanks for weekend state park camping. But for trips into mountains tanks are empty. My husband really likes to travel light but since we get a later start on weekends, it is nice to pack, fill tanks and hook up on Thursday night so right after work, we are on the road.

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

Your Jack looks so much like our Australian Cattle Dog Emily. She is the smartest and most amazing dog. We see her beginning to slow down at 11 years. I hope that when the time comes, we can do what is best for her as you did Jack.

RE: New Member

I have found so many answers, laughter, news and information that I did not even know I could use on this forum. Welcome to the forum, but more importantly congratulations on your new TT. You are about to begin forming amazing memories!

RE: What do you do for fun

Weekends - Hike, bike, take dog for walks, disc golf, campfire in evenings; Vacation: All of the above plus explore area If our kids and grandchildren join us - It is much of the same but louder! After almost 40 years of marriage we love the time camping, forming new memories, and enjoying the time together.
