A New Upper Peninsula RV Park – Manistique, MI


While visiting Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula, we learned of a brand new RV park.  The park was in the final stages of construction when we visited – opening day scheduled for 28 June  2017.  Manistique Lakeshore Campground is totally new!

Located in the cute little town of Manistique on the southern edge of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the park was developed by the  town to attract visitors to the area.

Should you decide to visit, you’ll be within walking distance of the downtown Manistique Area, a kayak launch, good Salmon fishing and a local winery.  And a great little lunch spot, the Upper Crust Cafe – hard to make a selection there – it’s all good!

                                   Sample some Michigan Wine right down the street…

               Kayak Rental – launch point right here!

The RV park is located immediately off of Michigan State Highway #2.  If you have not visited, Michigan State Highways are a pleasure to drive.  Well maintained, marked and notifying drivers of upcoming passing lanes – sometimes better than a Federal Interstate!  And, of course, the local road will give you a better flavor of the countryside…….

We walked through the Park prior to the official opening.  Hopefully you can judge from the pictures how LARGE the sites are – we could easily fit our 45′ motorhome in any available site.

                                                          All Large Sites…

Offering full hook up sites with cable(!) and WiFi (!), a handful of sites are directly on water front lots.  Most water front sites have a view of a sweet little lighthouse!

New restroom facilities, shower rooms and laundry room will be available for staying/paying guests.

Reservations and information may be found at their web site manistiquelakeshorecampground.org.

Not familiar with the area?  You might enjoy visiting Michigan’s Fayette State Park, Palms Beach State Park, Indian Lake State Park & Tahquamenon State Parks – all within a short drive.

This was our first trip to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula – we really enjoy the area!

  1. Wow – looks like a great RV Park. I’ve book marked it for a future visit to the area. Last year we had a reservation at Fayette SP but ended up having to cancel when plans changed.

    1. Hi Ingrid! thanks for your note. We are enjoying this part of the Country! such beautiful places and very, very nice people. Hope you are having a great summer – your photos are lovely as ever. Where are you headed to this Summer

  2. Looks like you are heading west. Looking forward to seeing more postings. Be interested to hear your observations about new coach. Take care.

    1. Hi Ron! I hope you both are enjoying a great summer in your lovely home. Do you plan to head back to Palm Springs for the winter? we will let you know how the new coach break-in goes. We have a looooonnnnggg punch list that the manufacturer is supposed to fix this Fall. Also had a real pain-in-the-neck issue when we finally started heading North only to turn around 30 miles outside of the RV dealership. They fixed in within the week and we were on the road. Fingers crossed that everything remains OK till we return to Decauter IN in the Fall. Any chance we can talk you guys into a meet up somewhere in the SW? Utah? Vegas? Miss you guys and hugs to Sharen!

  3. Hello World Travelers! I’m absolutely loving this post on Manistique Lake! How fun! Interesting to see a new campground in design to practice and it looks like they did a great job! A curious Oregonian wants to know if skinny dipping is allowed in that big ole lake? Hugs from the left coast. 🙂

    1. Hi Andrew – how nice to hear from you. We are having a great summer exploring the center of the USA. Attending an 11-day music festival in Milwaukee and loving it! hope you are doing well and staying safe. Miss you guy! Gail
