2024 Lumberjack Rally at Mitchell State Park

June 13 @ 8:00 AM June 16 @ 5:00 PM EDT

This is a Tin Can Tourists official event and you must be a member of the club to use the group hold and attend the event. Join the club here: TCT Membership – Tin Can Tourists

In 2024, the campground is blocking off 50 sites for us to group closer together. The park loved having us and were really supportive of the event.

Registration Process

Step 1) Get your camp site using the Michigan State Park Reservation System (https://www.midnrreservations.com/) or by calling 1-800-447-2757 (1-800-44PARKS)

GROUP HOLD: Lumberjack2024

The hold code applies to 50 sites that are grouped together for the club. You are more than welcome to get any other site that is nearby if you’d prefer or if you have a need that another site might provide – like a 50amp site, handicap site or a site closer to the bathroom/showers.

SITE 136 – Host: Terry and Michelle Bone

SITE 194 – Morning Coffee: Steve Brown & Sandy Masten (no dogs allowed at coffee)

Step 2) RSVP that you’re attending by emailing tct1919@gmail.com 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!

This is a casual weekend and open house (12-3pm) to get introduced to the state park and local community. We will be planning on a few group activities: Molkky Tournament, a Happy Hour, New Member initiation, and coffee will be provided. Agenda will be posted a few months out from the event.

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!

  1. Terry and Michelle,
    Good Afternoon. I met you in Elkhart this summer. (I was the one in the little pink camper) I am hoping hit at least one of the TCT rallies next summer. Unfortunately someone side swiped my camper at the NOMADS annual meeting so Gracie is out of commision at present. Two thoughts. At parties of all sorts I have been part of the “gift” exchange. Everyone brings a “gift” (serious or useless) and individuals pick a gift they can keep or the next person can swap. Extremely fun and creative. Never heard anyone complain. I’d be happy to take charge of that. Just thought I’d offer it up as a possible filler someone. Thanks. Holly

  2. Hi Holly- hope your trailer gets back on the road soon. We love doing gift exchanges at our rallies at Camp Dearborn. Hope you can make one of those soon!
