SEPTEMBER 3-12, 2018
Great Lakers Chapter Roving Rally
Michigan's Upper Peninsula

This is a roving rally, but you may attend all or part.

Each additional campground and dates are also listed separately on the calendar with the same information as below.


This rally explores three different sites, beginning on the Sainte Mary's River, moving from there to Lake Superior, and then to Lake Michigan. Join us for all or part of this trip. Make reservations early. Campsites go fast!

Pat Pokay and Linda Grandstaff are the hosts for this roving rally. Once you have made reservations, please email ppokay@emich.edu to let them know you are participating. Be sure to specify which parts of the roving rally you plan to attend. Also contact them if you would like a copy of campground maps before making reservations.

You might also choose to join some of us who will be arriving early to take the traditional Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Walk. Each year, the state closes this bridge on the morning of Labor Day for pedestrians to walk the 5-mile span. For more information, visit www.mightymac.org/bridgewalk. If you are interested in this activity, you will need to arrive on the north side of the bridge early on September 3. One option is to boondock at the St. Ignace Keewadin Casino the night before. The other option is to reserve your campsite at the Soo Locks Campground for the weekend preceding the rally. It is a 55-minute drive to the bridge from the campground.
