Labor Day is an extra special day for full-time RVers because it’s signifies the end of packed campgrounds and the beginning of a more peaceful camping season.
We spent our holiday weekend jammed in with the crowds at Tawas Point State Park. The campground is ok. Sites aren’t very private, but there’s a really nice hiking trail if you don’t mind mosquitoes.
I think it’s cool that there’s a “dog beach”, though it’s really more of a spot for dogs to access the lake rather than a beach for them to play on.
We did a little campground scouting while we were in the area, and I really liked East Tawas City Park. In order to get a site on the beach you need to rent it for the entire year. Even so, the interior sites have full hookups and the beach is great.
Dinner Last Night:
Kale Quinoa Burrito Bowl. Left-overs make a great lunch.
