    Looking to find somewhere fun to camp with the kids and our dog, likely May 11-13 or 24-27

    Not sure I want to cross the border and camp on your Memorial Day long weekend, a little to busy for us.

    I see Lakeport State park. Which is open by May 11. I'm sure it will be chilly on May 11th on the Lake but I'm sure out furnace can handle it for a couple days.

    I see Wolverine County park. Which opens memorial weekend.

    I'd love to go to Wolverine and then take my truck to the Mounds Offroad park, but I'd rather wait til my Scout II is finished and then go there the following summer.

    Any where is that might be fun just to relax?

    I'm also picking up a bunch of parts for my Scout II on the US side and take em back home.

    I don't know if it's your cup of tea, but there's a KOA in Port Huron (actually there's a couple, but the one I'm talking about is called Port Huron KOA). They have a couple of pools, an adjacent activity center (batting cages, waterslides, putt putt, etc.), ice cream shops, train rides, hay rides, organized activities, etc. Great place for kids 6-13 imho.

    Hey thanks I'll check it out. Haven't camped at a KOA since I was a wee one.

    It's cheaper for me to just rent one of the Kabins at the KOA then haul my trailer there.

    Well due to a major late booking on my part I found only a couple sites available along the east Huron coast. Ended up booking at Lake Port State Park site #350.

    June 29 to July 2.

    Should be fun. Any info of fun things to do or see/ shop around the port Huron area would be good.

    Dog friendly even better.

    This is our first time ever across the border for both me and my wife.
