Default 2020 Winter Freezeout

Mike Wendland posted this: The sixth Winter Freezout at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in Michigan's Upper Peninsula where it is snowy and super cold.

"The annual Upper Peninsula winter gathering of Fellow Travelers of the RV Lifestyle is on and ready for you to make your reservation! The dates will be January 9-12, 2020 In the Tahquamenon Falls Lower Falls Hemlock campground. This will be the sixth year we have gathered up there to play in the snow and hang together in the beautiful UP. This is an informal gathering, which means you have to make your own reservations with the Michigan DNR. Go to their website at

https://midnrreservations.com/

Book the dates you want (some of us are coming Thursday, some are even staying over to Monday). After you make your reservation, be sure to join our special winter campout Facebook Group:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697339513886451/

and introduce yourself and tell us what site you booked. All communication, announcements, etc as we get close to the date will be done through that group."


It used to be a Class B Roadtrek group primarily. Last year they were mostly Class Bs of several manufacturers and a few other types of RVs including two tent campers. This year who knows since Wendland went to RV Lifestyle.

I forgot to mention we have signed up and I understand they have a record 34 signees already. Any questions or doubts about winter camping can be answered here. This will be my fourth trip.

There are electrical hookups and the Michigan DNR plows out the road access and the campgrounds on a demand reservation basis. The plumbing restrooms are closed but there is a vault toilet for cold butt tolerators. There is a toilet room open with plumbing and water at Tahquamenon Falls.

There is a brewery, pub and restaurant in the park. That is unique. The park is open mainly for snowmobilers. Our group often snow shoes, cross country skis or just embibes around a campfire. We traditionally have a group gathering at a restaurant in the close by town of Paradise and then another night at the brewery.
