All of these six US Forest Service campgrounds are within 10-20 miles of Munising, Michigan  (on the north coast of the Upper Peninsula).  This convenient location makes any of these campgrounds a perfect site for the traveler  enjoying the recreational opportunities available in the Munising area, including Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Alger Underwater Preserve, Lake Superior boat cruises, Miner’s Castle, and many delightful waterfalls.  All of these campgrounds are located on a lake (either Lake Superior or an inland lake) and have magnificent views.

AuTrain Lake is the largest inland lake in the area. It is an 830 acre lake with a maximum depth of 30 feet and an average depth of 12 feet The large size of this lake provides miles of prime water skiing, boating, swimming, and fishing. Canoeing is also popular here on AuTrain Lake and the AuTrain River below the lake.

Island Lake is a 32.5 acre lake where the family camper can enjoy canoeing, fishing, hiking, and camping. Located “off the beaten path,” this area receives lighter visitor use than some other campgrounds, so it may offer you more privacy and serenity.

Corner Lake is a 100 acre lake that offers camping, fishing, boating, and an excellent swimming beach for young children.

Home Before the Squall, photo by Julie Mansour Thinking there's been a lot of rain lately? You're not wrong! Michigan has experienced a lot of rain over the last few weeks, and meteorologist Mark Torregrossa shares that there are three weather conditions all combining over the Great Lakes that keep the rain machine running: Over the next 10 days there should be three weather systems moving through the Great Lakes region. Each of these storms should have one to two inches of rain in the heaviest swath of precipitation. The cause of the wet weather starts with numerous storm systems being born over the northern Pacific Ocean. These storms are hitting the Pacific Northwest coast every three to five days. The storm systems then cross the hotter than average Rockies and drop south into the base of a "U"-shaped bend in the jetstream. This U-shaped area is where storms spin faster and intensify. It's the area along the jetstream where large-scale weather systems are at their strongest. The final part to this wet weather scenario is what we call a "wide-open Gulf of Mexico." Southern winds from the Gulf of Mexico into the Midwest and Ohio Valley bring high amounts of water vapor northward. The strong storm systems use that water vapor to produce heavy rain. ...The total rainfall forecast over the next week, through July 4, 2017 shows NOAA forecasters expect a swath of five to six inch total rain. We will just have to watch where this heaviest rain sets up. Right now it is expected to fall south of the flooded areas in Michigan. It could easily shift north or south a few hundred miles. Julie caught the Neptune beating the rain in Holland last weekend. See more in her slideshow:
