Fayette Historic SP, Michigan UP

Last summer I spent four weeks camping around the Michigan UP and found Fayette Historic State Park. It's a smaller CG compared to most Michigan State Parks, but the area is very nice with a lot of history. The Historic Townsite adjoining the CG is great, focusing on the iron-smelting operations that use to take place there years ago. The CG has vault toilets (no showers), no dump station, has electric at sites, and a couple of water spigots for filling jugs. If you want a nice pull thru site #25, #24, #27, and #10 are great choices. Back-ins would be #33 (nice view), #12 (view), and #54 (large site).

There's a nice beach/picnic area on Lake Michigan, and a boat launch.

I didn't have any reservations, but site #21 was just fine for my needs;

Twin blast furnace building is representative of the buildings within the Townsite area;

I highly recommend at least a two night stay to enjoy the area.

There are some really nice spots in the UP. We will keep this one in mind for the next time we get into the area.
Thanks for posting this.
