Scenes from the Keweenaw Peninsula

Location: Houghton-Hancock, MI

We have been camped at the McLain State Park outside Houghton-Hancock in the Keweenaw Peninsula (that little ragged point at the top of Michigan's Upper Peninsula). We are used to being in campgrounds where there are a lot of motor homes and fifth wheels, a somewhat large number of travel trailers, and only infrequently a truck camper, pop up, or tent. Boy was this a different experience for us! The campground, right on Lake Superior, was almost entirely populated by families with small children, in tents, pop ups, or small trailers. Most were from Michigan, but we did see a few Minnesota and Wisconsin plates. Obviously a "take the kids camping" place -- nothing like our typical "over 55" places! We only saw two other motor homes while we were there -- but did see a daily parade of kids on bikes, in-line skates, and even a unicycle. Plus we saw some fantastic scenery:
