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.

The tracks belong to a snowshoe hare! They are so named because of their very large hind feet that are lined with stiff hairs that act as a snowshoe, supporting their weight on the surface of the snow.

There were predictions posted yesterday for a significant Northern Lights display, and Aurora indicators showed that there was good potential for a decent show after it got dark last night. As it turned out, there was a glitch is the monitoring system that incorrectly reported space weather conditions resulting in incorrect readings and an erroneous forecast. I was not aware of it until later, and went out with my camera and a friend, but we managed to catch a brief show anyway, and it was a beautiful night to be out along Lake Superior even though it was quite cold.
