Last year the park set aside 30 sites for us and we ended up with 44 attending. In 2022, they are setting aside 40 sites for us to group closer together. The park loved having us and were really supportive of the event.
Step 1) Get you camp site using the Michigan State Park Reservation System (https://www.midnrreservations.com/) or by calling 1-800-447-2757 (1-800-44PARKS)
The group hold code expired at the end of February – so now you’ll need to just get a site the old fashioned way and try to get as close as possible to the group. As of 3/2/22 there were still about 6 sites in the general area (138, 139, 141, 147, 159, 161)
136 – Host: Terry and Michelle Bone
Step 2) RSVP that you’re attending by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what campsite you ended up with – we’d like to know how many are coming for the welcome packets and coffee/treat planning!

Rally fee will be $10 to help cover the pavilion costs and the costs of coffee/treats and supplies that we will bring. We will collect the rally fee when you pick up the welcome package!
The rally theme is “Lumberjack” to honor the logging industry and the reason the canal between the two lakes was built to float the logs to the mills that were on Lake Cadillac and the nearby railroad. Lots of red plaid!
