Stay Overnight - MI

Have you tried one of our yurts? In addition to the yurts at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, Craig Lake and Pinckney, we’ve added a new one overlooking Green Lake in Waterloo Recreation Area. Do you want to camp on the beach? Negwegon State Park has four backpack hike-in campsites located on Lake Huron. You might want to canoe/kayak to the site that is two miles north on a point reaching out into Lake Huron. Both Interlochen and Port Crescent state parks have added pop-up campers which are available to rent through www.midnrreservations.com The latest lodge renovations were completed at Tahquamenon Falls and Traverse City. Lodges come with refrigerators, stoves and a large variety of other amenities.
