    Default camping in mid june

    Instead of only coming to visit copper harbor on a snowmobile, this summer the family wants to see the U.P. in the summer...Thinking mid june...are the black flies bad that time if the year? looking at staying at the lake fanny hooe campground in cooper harbor..anyone have some feedback on the campground? we are also bringing our UTV's for some trail riding...can you leave directly from this campground?
    thanks for your input

    The black fly season may be a bit delayed due to the cool start to spring, though, you may have less of a problem there due to the close proximity to the big air conditioner. As far as the campground is concerned, it's ok, but, really no other choices in "Copper" Harbor other than the Fort & you can forget about being able to go to & from on the wheelers there. To answer your question regarding UTV's at Fanny Hooe, yes, you can leave directly from the campground. Just remember to get your trail permits though, you will need the local & state trail permit $36.25. Enjoy your stay!-Mezz

    Yes, Walmart does sell them in their sporting goods dept. I do know the local Holiday Station stores do in Hancock & Calumet, Quality Hardware in Lake Linden & also at the Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau in Calumet. I am sure there are a few more places around here, but I cannot say for sure who. I hope that helps. FYI, the permits are actually 2 separate permits, the general use permit is $26.25 & the State permit is an additional $10.00 totaling $36.25 and you will need both.-Mezz
