On Tuesday, July 15, we left our family in Wisconsin and headed north towards Michigan. We didn’t go far. 43 miles later, we stopped at the charming city park in Dorchester, WI to enjoy 50 amp FHU and catch up on laundry :) As lovely as our site was during our family time, it was only 30 amp with no water and no dump station. We had to be very careful we didn’t overfill our tanks. There is no dump station (where we would fit) anywhere close.
On Thursday, July 17, we left Dorchester and drove 4 hours to Baraga, MI on the Copper Coast and the Keweenaw Bay area.
Our first choice was the city park in Houghton, MI but they were booked through the weekend. We ended up staying at the Ojibwa Casino in Baraga, about 30 miles south of Houghton, a first for us.
The casino park has no ambiance because it’s on the fringe of the parking lot :) BUT, it has 50 amp FHU, 90+ channels of Cable TV and blazing fast Wi-Fi. It was a no brainer for $20/night.
Friday we took off for Houghton to see what we missed by not being able to stay in their city park. It was a beautiful area. Each site had their own covered patio and all were waterfront.
The view was pretty nice too. If we come back to this area, I’ll reserve far in advance to get one of these sites.
Unfortunately, I have to say they were just “OK”, nothing special :( The fish was supposed to be whitefish, but it was reminiscent of catfish to me, not one of my favorites.
Tomorrow we plan to find the Aura Jamboree in Aura, MI. It’s supposed to be THE big thing in this area each year. Musicians from all over congregate and make it one big Jamb. There’s supposed to be several different kinds of music represented but our next door neighbor here at the casino plays the banjo and says a lot of it is Bluegrass. He traveled here from Florida to participate. We’re looking forward to joining in the fun :)
Thanks for stopping by.
