The last I read, the powers that be have a plan to deal with it. Since they absolutely refuse to use any chemical whatsoever, their plan will take three years and might not be that effective.

So, be sure to ask when you get there if there have been any outbreaks (if you intend to swim).
I tend to stay out of the water there. For me its a working vacation, however my folks and sister and BIL and nephew go and they do spend some time at the beach. Its very well posted about the swimmers itch and also they make you aknowlege it when making the reservations. A few years back my nephew ended up with it and it was bad. He's real carefull now if he goes in the water. Thanks for the heads up though!

If you have time, be sure to stop in at copper falls state park in WI for a couple hours sight seeing (the falls are amazing). Its about an hours drive (if I remember right) from porcupine mtn union bay campground and is well worth it IMO.

Vegas to the grand canyon and up to Yellowstone through undetermined route through Utah national parks. Unfortunately it's too far west for us to do with our rv as we only have 10 days. Gonna fly rent an SUV and do the tent thing. Looked into renting a motor home but that just ain't in the budget. 3 days in Vegas on the strip with the wife (gonna see Reba and Brooks and Dunn in their new show) then she goes home and it's just me and my boy on a summer road trip for the next week. Just did a week in Key Largo with the rv.

Not an RV trip, but 50th anniversary trip this late summer. Fly to Venice for three days, 12 days cruise to Barcelona and three days in Barcelona and then home. Will do some shore trips along the way.

Well I have three I guess.

We just got back from a trip that covered Manatee Springs State Park, Ft. Desoto Park, and the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.

In July I have a Cape Cod, Acadia National Park, and White Mountains trip.

The week after Christmas I have a week at Long Key State Park.
