Wanna hear a good one?

FYI: This is not me nor my wife; pretty sure not my kids either.

FYI: This is not me nor my wife; pretty sure not my kids either.

I’m trying to get a campsite for this coming Fourth of July weekend.

I know, I know … why wait till the last minute?

To make a long story short, we thought we’d be ferrying my sons to some baseball tournaments this weekend. But too late we were told they only have one game on Friday night, so now it’s a scramble to find a campground with an available campsite. And I’m hoping beyond all hope that these campsites are mostly level, somewhat shaded and not at all close to anyone with a case of firecrackers. That, and clean facilities.

I know, I know … you get what you deserve.

Fortunately, the Michigan Chapter of the Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds just issued a list of their member campgrounds who have available campsites this weekend. I’m saved, although now all my lectures to my kids about not waiting till the last minute to do their homework/chores/ etc. have been shot to you know where!

Campgrounds reporting availability for the holiday weekend include:

Beaver Trail Campground, West Branch (989-345-7745)
Cedarville RV Park, Cedarville (906-484-3351)
Clementz’s Northcountry Campground, Newberry (906-293-8562)
Coolwater on the Pine, Wellston (231-862-3481) We have stayed at this campground and it is okay. It is heavily used by large groups of canoer/campers during the warmer summer weekends, however. Also, most sites are not big rig friendly and, again, be sure to ask for a site away from the rowdy canoer/campers (although there might not be that many this early in the summer).
Cranberry Lake Campground, Marcellus (269-646-3336)
Duggans Canoe Livery & Campground, Harrison (989-539-7149)

Gaylord KOA, Gaylord (800-562-4146)
Holiday Camping Resort, New Era (231-861-5220)

Kalkaska RV Park & Campground, Kalkaska (231-258-9863)
Kampvilla RV Park, Bear Lake (800-968-0027)
Lakeview UM Campground, Lakeview (989-352-6896)
Lighthouse Family Camping Resort, Mecosta (231-972-2112)

Troll Landing Campgr./Canoe Livery, West Branch (989-345-7260)
Twin Oaks Campground & Cabins, Wellston (877-442-3102) We have also stayed here. Wonderful place! Again, heavily used by canoer/campers during the warmer months, so ask for a site away from their group camping areas.
Waterways Campground, Cheboygan (888-882-7066)

Type and date(s) of site availability vary by property. This is not an all-inclusive list. This list includes campgrounds that responded back to a survey indicating availability, as of June 30. Availability subject to change. Reservations are required.

I offer the thoughts above as common inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up the place the most important thing will likely be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round things like that, but I am positive that your job is clearly recognized as a good game.
