Tour The Upper Peninsula! - MI

There's so much to see in the U.P.! This circle tour highlights some of the most beautiful parks in Michigan and gives you a complete sampling of everything the Upper Peninsula has to offer. Have fun!   DAY ONE: Straits State Park is the ideal starting point for your journey around the Upper Peninsula. Go for a hike, or have a picnic by the water with views of the Mackinac Bridge. From there, head west toward Palms Book State Park, where you can take a trip on the Kitch-iti-kipi raft. The raft allows visitors to see underwater springs that gush more than 10,000 gallons of water per minute. You can camp nearby at Indian Lake State Park, where cabins and a campground are available. Or, head back to Straits State Park for a night by the bridge.   DAY TWO: Next, head further west toward Bond Falls Scenic Site. Bond Falls is the middle branch of the Ontonagon river which tumbles over a thick belt of fractured rock, dividing the river into numerous small cascades. Just north of here, you can also view Agate Falls. Next, head east and stop at Laughing White Fish Falls and Wagner Falls scenic sites. Both sites offer short hiking trails and scenic observation decks that allow you to view the cascades up-close. BONUS TIPS: If you have time, make a special stop at Van Riper State Park to see moose, or Muskallonge State Park for agates on the Lake Superior beach. You can also stay overnight at Brimley State Park and take time to visit the famous Soo Locks. Several of the historic towns in the U.P. offer dining and lodging options as well.

Other Fun Activities - MI

Backpack along the Waterloo/Pinckney Hiking Trail. More than 40 miles long, it is a great trail to check out in the spring and fall for the vistas and variety of terrain. There are several camping areas along the way. Brimley State Park is a great place to watch the ships head to and from the Soo Locks. Another great location to view Great Lakes ships is Algonac State Park. There are more moose sightings in Tahquamenon Falls than anywhere else in the eastern Upper Peninsula. Clear Lake State Park has a lake that is 100 feet deep and is spring fed. This park and surrounding area are great places to look for wildlife, including elk. Yankee Springs Recreation Area has a barrier- free trail. It's one-half mile of hard surface and wooden boardwalks that cross wooded, wetland and lakeshore habitats ending at a viewing deck and fishing pier on beautiful Gun Lake. Brighton Recreation Area has also added a one-mile barrier-free trail. William Mitchell State Park is the home of the Carl T. Johnson Hunting and Fishing Center. Archery and shooting programs at the pellet gun range are very popular with children. Sleepy Hollow, Fort Custer, Waterloo, Holly and Newaygo state parks all have Disc Golf courses. There are no green fees to play this fast-growing sport. Muskegon State Park now has an accessible luge run available all year. It's the only one in the country.

DO NOT pay the 9 dollar passport fee for the day. Not worth it. And DO NOT bring your pet. It's a pretty park but very small and not much to do. Nice for a...
