Campers Cove Campground

Alpena, MI

We made it over the border today and into Michigan. I found a route that had some lighthouses and we stopped at three of them. We went up into the tower of two of the lighthouses where the actual light is located. One of them still had the Fresnel light operating. The stairs were winding and lots of fun for me since I get dizzy at the drop of a hat. The lighthouses we toured were being restored and had lots of donated old furniture in them that made it quite interesting. Since there are at least 118 lighthouses in Michigan we can’t begin to see too many but we enjoyed stopping at some of them.
