We will be attending a family reunion in June so want to see if I can get some spots reserved soon.

The reunion is going to be in the far northern part of Wisconsin. We want to visit Mackinac Island while up there and would just take Hwy 2 over to the area of St Ignace, MI and/or Evergreen Shores, MI. There are several places in and around Mackinaw City but for travel time, if we could get something in those areas would be helpful. Then we can just drive over to Mackinaw City if we want.

I'm not finding a lot in that area of Michigan. Do any of you know or visited the area have some suggestions?
Thanks!!

Just slightly off topic but when in Mackinaw City be sure to have one or two of their Pasties; a local staple for the workers when the bridge was being built. Our favorite source is Mackinaw Pastie and Cookie Company on Huron Street. They also have frozen Pasties to take home.
And see the video on how the bridge was built upstairs at Moma Mia's on the main drag in town close to the docks.

I second Straits State Park, cannot get any closer to the bridge and close to the ferry's
We stay here every year when we head up north. There are even a few sites that have spectacular views of the straits and the bridge if you want to dry camp.

If your visiting Mackinaw island, stay at the Tee Pee campground, they sell tickets for the boats to Mackinaw and the shuttle comes right to the campground.

We stayed at Lakeshore Park Campground. Free shuttle to the boat for island. Nice view of the lake.

I'm not sure I understand your intent. Do you realize it's about 6 - 7 hours from St. Ignace to "the far northern part of Wisconsin"?
As far as parks go, what type of facilities are you looking for? If you are looking Full Hookup sites, that will make a big difference in your available choices.

we stayed at the Straits a couple of years ago with a great view of the Bridge but we found the campsites very small and stacked very close to one another. Also, we had to pay a non resident daily fee just to enter the park which is now $8.00. Rt 2 is a very scenic drive but keep in mind that the UP takes a long time to traverse.

Very true on site size being somewhat tight with a few exceptions when we are talking about the lower 2 loops. The Upper loop is a lot more roomy if you have a big rig.
