Camping and Riding?

Postby engine_dude » June 10th, 2018, 4:38 pm

Rode yankee springs last week and am now addicted to the idea of camping and riding. Are there other cool areas in Michigan where you can camp and it’s close to some technical trails?

Poto, Brighton, Fort Custer for downstate stuff. Then there's the whole Marquette stuff with Ripplin' River and/or Tourist Park.

Bruno's Run goes right through Pete's Lake campground in the UP. Several campgrounds in the Pigeon River if you want to try the High Country Pathway or the Shingle Mill Pathway. The NCT through the Manistee NF offers lots of spots you can camp along it. None of those are overly technical but they're all great rides.

Okay, a bit of a drive, but the BEST camping/riding is in Copper Harbor; once you arrive, you never have to get in your car again until you leave. The trails are all within a short ride down a path from the state park is the brewery :-)

Petoskey State Park and Boyne Highlands is another option.
