8/22/21 – Leaving Michigan

So much traffic on the UP (upper peninsula). Riding from Newberry down to Cedar River it was campers, fifth wheel trailers and more campers on the road.

Blue skies and temps in the 70s somewhat made up for the traffic though. We are heading back east and will cross over into Wisconsin today hoping to stay at the Governor Thompson State Park. Lots of county roads to get there, some without center stripes but at least we got away from the campers.

Our first state park in Wisconsin and the initial impressions from the visitor center are good. Modern and well maintained. Since we don’t have an annual park pass we have to pay the daily rate for two vehicles, $22, which is actually more than the campground itself which was $21 :-o. The drive from the visitor center to the campground was another 3 miles which I got to do twice, once in to pick out a campsite and then back to the office to let them know which site we picked – one close to the bathroom and showers.

Overall a good stay. Not very crowded and mostly quiet.
