View Full Version : Camping in the Keweenaw?

04-17-2013, 03:50 PM
I see that there is not to many campgrounds in the Keweenaw, so my question is could my wife and I just go down some side roads or logging trails and set up a tent to get away from the whole campground thing. When we do camp it is with a tent anyways. Has anyone done this for any lenght of time?

If you want to get away from it all i guess, probably be ok in the national forest. http://www.keweenaw.info/lodging/campgrounds/

I take my family dispersed camping. Our longest trip was a tour of Wyo, Utah, Colo for two weeks. We go to the Yoop also, but haven't camped more than four nights. 16 days is the longest one can stay at one site. You can't drive in and setup anywhere, there are rules to follow. Below are links to DNR dispersed camping and Motor Vehicle Usage Maps. The maps will inform you what roads are ok to drive on and when.

This was taken on FR 515 between Tog pass and Brooks Lake.

The road looks so much wider in the summer.
