The RV sites also range from charmingly rustic, like ours, to waterfront to pretty unkempt. I've also noticed that the mosquitoes are getting larger exponentially as we head further north. BY the time we reach the UP, I expect them to be the size of small birds. The mozzies even like Dave, the first time in his life that he's been bothered by them.
The campground has a park store, bike and surrey rentals, an arcade, pizza, putt putt golf and trolley stops for the ferry over to Mackinaw Island. As a matter of fact, one of the trolley stops is directly across from our campsite.
I started doing some research on when Mackinaw Mill Creek was first opened and found, to my surprise, that it dated back to 1963! I wanted to write about the history of the place because it's fascinating, but I couldn't do a better job than one of the sons of the original owners, so here is the story in their words:
They also have two antique fire trucks that they use to take families on rides around the campground. We also saw many wood carvings and totem poles around the campground.
Did I mention the beautiful views of the Mackinaw Bridge? Sunset over the bridge is spectacular and on Friday evenings at 10 pm, the City has fireworks over the Bridge. We'll definitely miss this campground when we leave!
