It is at Lumbermen's Monument NF CG, but it's on the north side of the AuSable. After checking in at the office by the monument (which is S of the river), you go west to M-65, north to Bissonette Rd, then back east for several miles (6 or 7?). There's a dirt turnoff to the right, then after 100 yards you take another right onto a sandy 2-track, and that site is the most scenic one because it's on top of a bluff overlooking the river. No mosquitos up there during the day even when they are everywhere down low. Taking the 2-track to the left leads to other sites at water level, though, where it's easy to put in a small boat.

Looks like the overlook at Woodman's Monument.

We have been to Lumberman's Monument, but didn't camp. We haven't explored that area too much, so missed that view. Another place for a future visit. Thanks!

Congratulations on the Snoozy

Steve in beautiful Elk Rapids MI here.
My wife Deb and I picked up a used Snoozy about a year ago and are having a great time. Over two weeks of camping last summer and fall. We are heading over to the Black River, on the sunrise side of the state, in May to guard the sturgeon coming up the river to spawn. Watch out you poachers!
We have made lots of modifications like lifting the frame 3", adding spare tire and gas can carriers, installing an inverter to run the fridge, an extra battery and selector switch, and additional cabinets. Also installed a locking device on the tongue for the Honda generator.
So, if you have any questions on things, glad to help where I can.
There is a FG camper rally up in the Keewenaw in August that we are planning to attend.
Now go have fun!

Steve, you should change your personal info about your trailer from shopping to Lil Snoozy. Its nice to see more LS trailers on this site. We are from Michigan originally, and plan to do extensive travel there and attend all the fiberglass trailer rallies there in 2019, so maybe well meet up sometime. Happy Trails

Who says I'm not still shopping?

Hey Dave, thank you for the suggestion.
My stock answer to any question about how many of some guy thing that I own is, "just one too few!"
In this case, however, I'll make the recommended change.
We left Michigan for Utah a number of years ago. While we loved the mountains, the lakes were in our blood and we had to come home.
All the best.

Welcome we tend to go around Rose City, West Side, or more locally around Pinkney for the short weekend jaunt. That is just long enough that the grass doesn't get mowed on the weekend.


Michigan FGRV rally at Algonac State Park in September, maybe we will see you there. :-)

Hi Steve, I do have one quick question. How many inches between the top of the rear door and the top of the shell. I am looking at a Furrion Rear camera and the mounting bracket needs at least 2.75 inches.

I did my first camping at Crooked Lake in the Pinckney Rec Area. Learned to swim there as a teenager. Lots of good memories there!

Camera

I checked when out this morning snow blowing a foot or so of new, heavy snow and did some measuring. I don't think you will have that much room.
It's about 1-1/2" from the bottom of the top door frame to the bottom of the track for the sun shade.
Even if you don't have the shade, there is still less than 2- 3/4" of flat.
I have been looking at a camera called the iBall Digital Pro. It is portable, so can be used as a back up camera on your rig or on your tow vehicle for hitching up.
It attaches magnetically, so there is still a mounting issue.
Anyone have experience with this product?
Ah, April in No. Michigan!

Small world; Jan and I both grew up in Saline, though we live in Traverse City now. Elk Rapidian, you're right about 'Ahh, April in No. Michigan'. I just got in from blowing out the driveway. That's some heavy stuff, eh? I'm ready to sit down and enjoy one of Short's finest.

Hard to believe that we already camped for a week this spring, down on the kid's farm between Dexter and Pinckney. Weather was much nicer there in March.

Hope to see some of you at the Algonac rally.

That is what I was worried about. Looking at the best pictures I could find, there didn't seem to be much vertical flat above the door. I am going to have to reconsider the mounting possibilities. I just looked at the camera you mentioned. Looks great for hitching and backing into a spot. I would like something to watch traffic behind me, though.

We have been in Saline for 40 years. Dot, even longer (a graduate). You guys had the snow, but we got the ice storm. Power was only out 12 hours, for us. I guess we were lucky. Lots of places still down.

Sheesh, another good reason to have a generator.

Saline has changed a lot! We just had dinner with friends at Dan's Downtown last week. A million years ago, that was Harvey's Tavern AND Walker's Five & Dime.

We were SHS Class of '69 and '70. We bought our first house on North Ann Arbor Street in 1983, moved up here to TC in '89.
