    USA-MI 2012-03-30 Ocqueoc Falls

    Another northern Michigan (lower peninsula) trip!

    Last weekend of March, Ocqueoc Falls, near Alpena and Rogers City and Onaway.

    *EDIT* Looks like we're moving to the weekend of March 23-25.

    I saw some links online indicating that the falls were closed, so I called the DNR. Maintenance has been finished and it is opened back up already. The campground is seasonal and is closed, but the hiking trails are open and back country camping is allowed and is free.

    Pics from past summer trips:





    and a winter trip:

    3club,
    Any chance we can move the trip up a weekend? I would love to go, but can't make last weekend in march. What about 23rd-35th? Let me know your thoughts.

    Sure, I'd be game for that.

    This will be a little bit of a backpacking trip. The DNR guy said we just need to be a mile from any campgrounds, and on state land. He's sending me a map of the area along with a registration card that we just need to tie to a tree while we're there.

    I am probably going to have my friend Darin coming out as a ground camper checking stuff out also.

    If I can get the time off, we'll have ta drive up together racoon. Havent had a chance to see ya with the hammock yet- hoping I can do it. Might have a conflict with some family stuff, depends on which weekend is decided on for this- the third or the last one in march.
