This was the longest trip we have been on with our trailer (1100 miles r.t.)&( seven days six nights) and I’m glad to say everything went well. We did trade in the old Trailblazer for a better tow vehicle (Silverado 1500 Chevy truck).
The first night on the road we stayed at Fort Custer Recreation Area. All I can say is, “Wow...besides a mosquito family reunion this place was amazing.” The next day we arrived at Sleeping Bear Dunes-Platte River Campground. These two photos show site 311 in loop three.
Platte River Campground is located in the southern district of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, on the lower peninsula of Michigan. ... It is within walking distance of the Platte River and a short walk or drive away from the Lake Michigan shore. The Platte River Campground is one of the nicest campgrounds Linda and I have stayed. On to Fishtown…….
Fishtown is a quaint old fishing pier/village that supports an eclectic mix of shops offering all kinds of interesting wares and foods.
Linda and i were more interested in ice cream rather than smoked fish.
Maybe the Manitou Islands for another trip.
Welcome to the older ways..in a classic setting
Fishtown is one of the last genuine links to an industry that shaped coastal Michigan. Weather-beaten fishing shanties and small shops lining the mouth of the Leland River.
