Camping Trip In May (2019)!

We only  managed  to  get  out  for  one  tent  camping trip  in  2018,  mainly  because  of  too-hot  weather, replacing  our  AC/furnace  and  other  annoyances. When  we were  able  to   “escape”  for  a tent  camping  trip, it was in August, 2018 at Fishermans  Island  State  Park. This  rustic  campground  is  located  in Charlevoix, MI on  the shores  of  Lake  Michigan. I know  I  posted a blog  about  it, but  I’m  too lazy  to look  for it  now…

It  looks  like  we’ll  be  camping  in  Michigan’s   U.P. this coming  May! My  brother  finally  set  a  date  for  his  daughter’s  graduation  party, which  will be on Memorial  Day. My  husband  and  I will pitch  our  tent  at Twin  Lakes  State  Park, which  is  about  a half  hour’s  drive  from  my brother’s  home. Sites  cost  about $20  per night, which  is far  cheaper  than  a motel  room or an Air Bnb  booking! Plus, you  can’t  legally  have  a campfire  in  your  room  at  the  Super  8! Tell  that  to Keith  Moon  in  The Who   (lol)!

This  is  a modern  campground, so we’ll  have  flush  toilets/showers/electricity.

Camping  that  time  of  year  in  the  U.P. could  be  chilly, but we’ll  bring  extra  blankets. It  will  be  nice  to have  our  own  little  “retreat” during a family oriented  weekend of activities. I love my family…but  sometimes  I’m  not  “in  love” with  them!

Another trip  we have  planned  in  May  is  our   “popup camper” trip. We’ll  be  renting  a  popup  camper  in  a state  park  located  on  Michigan’s  west coast. I’ve  never  camped  in  a popup  before, so I’m  looking  forward  to  that!

I’m  fighting  some  real “cabin  fever” right  now  and  am  itching  to get  outside!
