Well here we are again at French Farm Lake, just outside of Mackinaw City. This is where we started out in June! We have a different campsite, though as I went past, all six of them were empty and available. There now is a group of tent campers next door. It’s been very quiet here except for occasional gunfire…..it’s hunting season, (Poor Roxie, she hates that). We have had some really nice weather!
I went to town today to run some errands….needed propane, and had a really hard time finding someplace who’d refill my tanks. All I could find were the exchange tanks which only give you 15# of propane instead of 20, and they cost $22.96 plus tax. I finally remembered the big Mill Creek Campground outside of town on Hwy. 23 and they had it! And only $18 for a 20# fill. BTW if you don’t want to boondock in Mackinaw City, they have “Economy” water/electric campsites for $11-13! They are, of course, towards the front of the campground & nowhere near the lake. Still, it’s a great bargain.
Here’s my favorite Mackinaw City “landmark”….Weinerlicious, with their gigantic hot dog on top of the building. (No, I haven’t eaten here)
And here’s the Mackinaw City lighthouse, with the “Mighty Mac” Mackinac Bridge in the background.
I plan to stay here until Friday, then head to Pinckney & Novi, Michigan to visit with friends.
I hate to even mention it, but in the 18 months I’ve been free camping, I have never yet not been able to get a free site, even though some places only had one or two sites! I hope I’m not jinxing myself saying that.
