One of my clubs is hosting a charity event on the Labor ("Labour" in Canada!) Day Sunday. We do this EVERY year on that day. For those in the Lower Mainland area of BC, we will be at Aldergrove Lake Regional Park for the Fifty 5-6-7 Club's annual Picnic in the Park!

Camping at the Solomon Island Navy Campground.
We often use Solomon Island for a stopping place when we go somewhere in our boat. Never thought about using it for Eggboy. Do you have to have some affiliation with the navy to use that campground?

In Michigan's Upper Peninsula, there is a casino at Bay Mills if you like that sort of thing. Nearby Brimley State Park is a nice CG according to my daughter who just tented there.

Consider a stop at Palms Book State Park to see Kitchi-Ti-Kipi, the Big Spring. You float on a big raft over the spring and look down into the crystal clear, green water and see the big fish way at the bottom. West of Manistique about 6 miles, then north a few.

If you like historical stuff, you might like Fayette SP just a half hour SW of there, on the Garden Peninsula. It's the site of an 1800s iron ore processing facility. Several old buildings with artifacts. You can hit all the state parks you like on a single one-day entry fee... $8 I think.

Buy a couple of pasties (say it with a short 'a', like fast-y) someplace for your meal... they're a lot like a pot pie.

If the weather is nice, at Munising you can take a 2-3 hour boat ride on L. Superior to view the Pictured Rocks Natl Lakeshore; about $50/person I think, but the captain will keep you grinning and the shoreline will keep you snapping photos. Try the sunset cruise for best light. I believe the Apostle Islands in Wisconsin are pretty similar, so don't plan to do both unless you just love the stuff. Folks can rent kayaks at the Apostles and paddle around all day... again, if the weather is nice.

The U.P. has a ton of waterfalls. The largest is Tahquamenon Falls on M-123 NW of Newberry. Another that I really like is Bond Falls... on US2 turn north at Watersmeet, go north on US45 to Paulding, then east about 4 or 5 miles to the falls. Nice trails around the waterfall.

Porcupine Mountains SP is worth stopping at. The east side has a high overlook, the west unit has a wonderful trail along a river with a bridge or two across, so you can walk up one side and down the other. Nearby municipal CG in Ontonagon is right on Lake Superior and affordable.

Once you get to Duluth, be advised that the drive NE from Two Harbors to Grand Portage is chock full of wonderful state parks, cascades, trails, and shoreline. Don't miss the Palisades, a high rock overlook above Lake Superior.

I think it's more the sport then the feast. Just another thing to hunt in Montana.
