Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, U.P.

We're planning for next summer. Last summer we did not get far enough east to catch Pictured Rocks, we plan on correcting that this year.

So far we've booked a week in Door County, Wisconsin in late June, and a week in Hayward, Wisconsin a couple weeks after that. In between we are planning on the Upper Peninsula beginning July 1 to the 9th or 10th. Two locations would be prefered perhaps the east and west ends of the park.

We would prefer off grid and near Lake Superior. We're looking at Bay Furnace and wondering if it typically fills up and looking at suggestions for plans B, C, and D. I remember when the stress of getting reservations didn't fill my winter.

I was trying to get a spot right in Marquette a couple of weekends ago and had no luck. That was last minute but I figured the season was over. Wrong. Stayed outside of town. The UP is lovely this time of year.

Bay furnace will most likely be booked that time of year, and also anything popular in a good location. There is a small casino across the road (Kewadin Christmas) that has a few rv sites with electrical plugs and is rather cheap. Probably even an overnite in just their parking lot would work. The following aren't off grid. Tourist park in Munising has lake Superior front lots and a nice beach but again will need reservations. Can't recommend anything on the east end other than a RV park right in Grand Marais that most likely will need reservations also. Off grid, look into state and national forest campsites. Not sure but I think some are first come, first served.

Ms and I really liked just "winging it". Hard to do now days especially during peak times.

Thank you. We've already set reminders for exactly 6 months prior to get reservations. Someone is able to book.

Bay Furnace is a nice campground. If you're feeling lucky, they have some first come first served sites.

In addition to the Forest Service website recommended by ARoamer, try these if you haven't already:

https://www.recreation.gov/

https://www2.dnr.state.mi.us/parksan...t.aspx#map-tab

The Michigan DNR site isn't working today but I've used it a lot to find Michigan State Park and State Forest campgrounds.
