Our favorite place to camp is Lake Sch-Nepp-A-Ho in Muskegon, MI. It is rustic and beautiful, yet has all the amenities you need. The lake is great to swim in too. Whenever we visit Michigan Adventure we stay there as it is only 2 miles away.

I would love to win these tickets, I sold my camper two years ago due to the economy and have regretted it every since. Of course the first person to call showed up with cash and bought it. I have been wanting another one every since. Tents are not my thing.

I have been meaning to canoe down the Au Sable for the last 2 years and haven't. This year is a must! Never heard of Bruin Lake! I have to give it a try.

My family has been camping at East Jordan since I was a kid. When my own family bought a camper that is the first place we went camping, I hope my kids have the same memories that I have
