Mackinaw Mill Creek sunset with the bridge in the background. This is stop 4 on the UP Road Trip 2016. We can reserve sites for all four stops of the August UP Road Trip. If you are coming, reserve your sites now. August in the UP is a busy time and all campgrounds will be full.

We can book sites NOW for the Algonac (Michigan) camp-out. This is a popular campground, being on the St. Clair River, part of the St. Lawrence Seaway where we can sit in our sites and watch ocean going freighters traverse to and from the Great Lakes.

Watkins Glen, in the beautiful Finger Lakes area of western New York may be fully booked, but do try to get in for at least part of the September event time.

Note: Natural Tunnel State Park, Lovers Leap Campground is completely booked, no sites left, although you may still be able to get a site for part of the dates, or at their other near by campground.
