This past weekend we headed up to Copper Harbor Michigan. It was a beautiful drive, with this whole big motor home, the dogs want to be in only one place while we drive – down by Patti’s feet – no she wasn’t driving. Not yet at least, one of these days…
We followed Hwy 41 until it would go no further and we were in Copper Harbor.
It’s a cute little town, a few shops, restaurants and lots of cottages.
Just two blocks from town is Fanny Hooe Campground and Resort. Nice little place with the Campground, Motel and Cottages. It was on Lake Fanny Hooe and very private. They handed out notices about not feeding the bears, yeah right…like if we saw a bear, we’d feed it! But never the less, we didn’t see anything but geese, chipmunks and deer flies. It was a nice place but during the 1/2 hour it took to set up, Patti attracted every deer fly there was in the place and she got bit over 27 times in the neck and the face. Once we got settled they weren’t so bad, we must of stirred them up when we pulled in.
Took a nice walk with the dogs and then took a bike ride up the road. We finally saw our first water fall – Maganese Falls, it wasn’t big, but it was tucked away in the woods off the road we were camping on. Then we turned around and headed into Copper Falls, it was a beautiful evening…water was calm.
Saturday morning the bites took their toll on Patti and her face and neck swelled up and her left eye was swollen shut. We spent most of the day inside Saturday and pulled out this morning back to Houghton MI. We are back at the Houghton RV park where we were last week. We would definately recommend this place to anyone! We will be here through Sunday and then off to our next adventure.
