Thanks, I really appreciate the info. I have been to the porkies when I was a kid, it's really an amazing place... about an hour further from where I'm coming from though (green bay area). I'll probably call again on friday (expecting to get the same answer). I'm OK staying at any of the sites you mentioned, since it's either going to be just me or me and 2 friends in a single tent. All the sites you mentioned would be in my hiking distance for a day, so again I really appreciate the insight on those (especially about the rangers
I definitely wouldnt mind going to the porkies, not having been there in probably close to 18 years. Are the trails pretty well marked?
