Too much to see and do in one trip, we are going again.

We have made over twenty trips to the UP and speaking as a Trool I always look forward to our next visit. First stop as soon as you cross the BIG MAC and take in the beauty of the... read more

We have made over twenty trips to the UP and speaking as a Trool I always look forward to our next visit. First stop as soon as you cross the BIG MAC and take in the beauty of the area. You could easily spend a week in this area alone. There are great campgrounds all around the area but let... More

If I don't get to the U.P. at least twice a summer, I have withdrawals. We were just there and the weather was just a bit chilly which made for some great hiking, since it kept the bugs a bay. It is easy to get around, and you can pack in lots of things to see within a day. Picture... More

Easy traveling on the Upper Peninsula, camped in Bay Furnace National Forest near Munsing which was great, right on Lake Superior. Be sure to check out the old smelter while you are there. Camped at Lake Gogebic State Park on the way back through and had the worst ever mosquito experience of my life. I have camped a lot and... More

I'll be sharing more specifics from our trip later, but let me say: the people are friendly, the drivers are friendly and cooperative, and the scenery is astounding. We come from the D.C, area with the worst, rudest drivers in the world, so coming here was worth it just for that! But besides that, there's nice camping and beautiful scenery.... More

A little expensive, but overall beautiful and memorable. A place where you can set the pace of having a peaceful, quiet time; or an energetic, active time. Historical and unique.

If you are in the area UP is a must go, all of the national parks area great but a few attractions are a must see. A great location for a road trip with many sights to see. I wish i could have stayed longer and go for a proper hike.

There are people who do not know that there is a beautiful place up there in UP in Michigan. There are those that say that the place is weird. I would say it is peculiarly awesome. There are a lot of places to see. Tahquamenon Falls, Mackinaw Bridge and Island are great places to see just to mention a few... More

I've read through the posts about the U.P. of Michigan, but for a southern girl, I need instructions how to get there. What is the closest commercial airport? I had read somewhere that cars weren't allowed on parts of the peninsula. Don't know if that's true. Of course all I know of the area is from the movie Somewhere In... More

This park on the shore of Lake Superior has a wide range of hiking opportunities, and an easy short path to look to the south over Lake of the Clouds. Don't miss the waterfalls (there are several). The walk to the observation tower is also worth the short hike. If you are looking to camp, there are some gorgeous sites... More

It is a beautiful place we stayed at the Tahquamenon Hotel in Hulbert MI. It is a perfect distance from the main attractions in the UP. It is right in the middle of Newberry and the Sue Locks and not to mention 20 minutes from Paradise and the Falls. Great place and great owners. Visit Oswald’s bear Ranch and. Whitefish... More
