I know…..when I (as a born & raised Michigander) thought about this idea, I thought it was beyond crazy! But then I pondered, this weather 2018-2019 has been (mostly) wonderful! We all should take some time to take a memory-making adventure & take advantage of this time we have been given! In fact, The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has 34 parks open for winter camping throughout the entire lower & upper peninsulas of Michigan.
These 5 trips would be fun for anyone that enjoys (rustic) spa-like “glamping” with some girlfriends, a quiet retreat from the busy world, (ice) fishing, sledding or snowshoeing adventure memories, nature-gazing photography, animal watching, & nature hiking.
Best of all, many large animals are hibernating & the bugs are gone…..so those are 2 bonuses of winter camping trips. Since I work a traditional full-time job, I chose to highlight these small road trips to be easy for us all to have some fun.
