Hiawatha National Forest near Rapid River MI - This great site is only 0.6 miles north of the Peninsula Point Light on Little Bay de Noc as it meets Lake Michigan. The site is big enough for 3-4 units, has a gravel drive up to a large flat grassy area ringed with trees, and a stone’s throw of the bay. There is a fire ring and sufficient downed trees for firewood. The site is private, being shielded from the dirt road by trees. It’s located in the Hiawatha National Forest so according to their rules, is a free site. Despite its remoteness, there was LTE cell service (Verizon). The exact coordinates for the site are 45.676003/-86.966352 or 45*40’33.61”N/86*57’58.87”W. <br /> <br />There is another smaller site 0.1 miles north from this, also with a fire ring. We saw white pelicans on the water and hundreds of monarch butterflies as they stopped on the peninsula to rest before continuing their migration to Mexico.
