Our spot this week looks so idyllic in this photo. Well, photos can be misleading. Silver Lake State Park in Mears Michigan is not very peaceful.
The state park has 450-acre off-road vehicle area which means it’s really noisy and busy here. There also isn’t any privacy between sites and even though they limit 6 people to a site, the rules aren’t enforced.
This back window shot make me think of our friend Kerri who takes a lot of office view pics.
Anyway, these photos make this place look so much nicer than it is. Too bad we didn’t have someone scout out the good spots before we got here, if we had known, we would have stayed on Green Road at Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area. Brian hasn’t posted photos yet, but he says it’s amazing.
