July 5, 6, 7 Marinette WI Moose Campground

We arrived in Marinette WI to the biggest Moose Campground we've ever seen!  There are 102 spots, with about 90 taken by seasonal moose members.  What a wonderful park!  Their lodge is open Thurs, Fri, Sat, & Sun, so we were only able to participate in Hamburger night on Thurs nite, it was fantastic as all hamburger nights are - we both got cheeseburgers, 1 order of FF and 1 order of onion rings, and our bill was $8.00...can't beat that with a stick! 

There are twin cities Marinette and Menominee, separated by the Menominee river.  Marinette is in WI and Menominee is in MI!  While we were driving around on Wed, a very nice guy on a scooter pulled ahead of us and said we had a brake light out - so off we went to NAPA - and of course we have the kind of lights that you just can't replace, you have to go to a dealer - so we found a chevy dealer, and they took a look - yep, need entire new circuit board - part ordered, go back Thurs for appt...$100 later we're out the door.  Wow...for a brake light!  That included the time they took the day before to diagnose the problem :( 

Here are some pictures of the Marina at Menominee (yes, right on Lake Michigan) and some fantastic food we had at a place called Railhead - David tried their oatmeal stout beer and he was in heaven :)  and lastly some pics of the campground we stayed at including a golf cart that David loved!

  1. I do hope the Moose clean up after themselves in the nearby sites. Their droppings have GOT to be bigger than the other animals allowed in campground.

    We will be staying in the northeast all summer and fall. Only commitment is RI during last week of August and first two weeks September. Let me know when and where in PA and I'll see what we can arrange.

    I'll download Chrome as you suggested.
