It's amazing how the parks clear out after Labor Day. I do enjoy the summer camping and CGs with kids having fun, but fall camping is my favorite. They sure seem to be two different activites. We are leaving for the UP next weeks for two weeks and I can't wait. Peace, quiet, seclusion, fishing, biking...Cannot wait! For as many times as I have driven by Straits, I have never been through it or camped there. Seems like a great location though. If you are looking for more people and whatnot in the fall, many campgrounds do get busier during their harvest festivals or Halloween weekends. Those are really neat and full of decorated trailers and kids trick or treating.. There are also several campgrounds that come alive for the fall color tours. Welcome to the forum!
