I am going to spend some time riding in the UP this summer, what permits are required? I am street legal in Arizona with full coverage insurance. TIA
Most people just buy both and then they are covered wherever they go. What's bringing you to the U.P. ?
im from munising and dont invite more tourists here. Its already a zoo in the summer. More like coney island then the paradise it once was.If you are interested in visiting Picture Rocks, there is a pretty nice KOA in Wetmore that has full hook up sites with cable and WiFi and direct trail access and you can ride right from your campsite. They put in new bathrooms and leveled all the sites last spring. All Michigan campsites book up pretty fast, so I would suggest reservations well in advance.
tell them the truth. The trails are SUPER dusty and overrun with atvs most of the summer. Most of us stay away from the main trials except to get from point a to point b or to a good spot. Head toward gwinn its less congested. Really the nicest area in the UP to ride is the far east end. It hasnt been overtaken by tourists and its probably the prettiest area in the UP. Second choice would be the copper country.Ron is correct. Sites book FAST. Book now. Good trails from Manistique to Munising and Grand Marais. Those are the ones that I'm familiar with (I live in Munising). P.S. the colors up here won't start changing until mid-October.
great burgers at the bar there too.Fall riding is my favorite time of the year to ride in the UP. We usually get more rain then too so the trails aren't as dusty, but prepare for the worst. Near Manistique is a campground called Jack Pine Lodge that has full hookups and is right on the trails. Probably the most UTV friendly campground I've seen. There isn't anything else there like a beach, but you can ride for days using that as your starting point. A good ride is up to Grand Marais, but it will take a full day there and back with stops along the way.
The Jack Pine Lodge, Resort & Campground offers great Upper Michigan Rental Cabins cabins for you your friends and family. They are available for rental by day or week. We invite you to experience Michigan's Upper Peninsula!www.jackpinelodgeup.com
I just ordered a tow hook from your site this week!
