Location for Proposed Midwest Forums Rally

Greetings All!

This is a follow-up survey to the one posted about dates. It would probably be helpful to know a preferred location for the Rally as well. It seems that the Upper-Midwest has been the focus of the related thread, so I will include options for the states that have been discussed.

Kevin

Michigan!

Picked up a Michigan camping digest at the Cleveland RV show. There is no shortage of campgrounds in Michigan. I have never camped in Michigan.

If you consider Missouri the western side of the Midwest, Ohio east, you will probably find that Illinois or western Indiana is probably equidistant from most of the midwestern states.

As a southerner, I could possibly make a rally in Indiana or Illinois.
Trailer Life has an article on a nice Illinois town this month..also Southern Illinois near to Kentucky..would be quite accessible. Are we talking about June or July?

I would love to have one of these around here!

I could make almost anything in:

Northern Illinois
Northern Indiana
Southern Wisconsin

I will say though, for those who don't mind not having utility connections, there are some absolute gems in the upper penninsula of Michigan that I would recommend every day of the week and twice on Sunday, particularlly in the Iron Mountain area and Munising. Most will not find these places on those new campground books. You have to have the old Rand McNalley book or know the area to be able to navigate on the DNR's (Department of Natural Resources) website.


Regards!

Eric

Rally location

How about somewhere near Jackson Center, Ohio?
Or has this been mentioned and I missed it.

UP Michigan

I second what Eric said. In particular, the Porcupine Mountains State Park is incredible. It actually has two camping units, one with lots of outlets, showers and flush toilets and one that is a little more rustic without amenities but half of which does allow generators. There are miles of hiking trails, easily accessible waterfalls and the Lake of the Clouds all for your viewing pleasure. Admittedly, it is a bit out of the way but it is my favorite place to camp in the Midwest. The park is on Lake Superior just north of the Wisconsin border and a bit west of Ontonogin, Michigan.

While there are some real nice places in the states that form the borders of the Midwest, I still think our best chance to get this off the ground (at least for the first time) is to select something that evens out the driving for most folks.

I agree that would be a fair way, still. What is going to be the cutoff date? I think Kevin started the poll and gave it a 30 day run, it's got to be getting close to the end...

Greetings Jason!

The poll was posted on February 5 with a 30-day run. If my calculations are correct, the poll has another four days to run.

How about the Mississippi Palaceds? That is pretty centrally located. If I recall there is a state park there that isn't too bad either.

I like the post that Brouck posted but maybe it is a bit far for some. Traversing Illinois south to north and then Wisconsin might be a bit much.

Eric

Midwest gathering

Hey guys, as I look at the results now northern Wisconsin looks like the winner. Obviously that can change in four days but I agree that someone who wants to come from the southern part of this area might have second thoughts about traveling so far or vice versa. So I guess what I'm asking is, what has all this gotten us? Also, have we decided on dates yet?

If we have two or three clear winners instead of just a simple plurality we can have a runoff. Maybe we need to have a runoff anyway of the more centrally located options. What do you all think?

Runoff sounds good

Having spent a week home sick, which ate up a week of my vacation time, I unfortunately wouldn't be able to make a northern WI rally this year; it's a little too far for a weekend for me. A run off would keep me in the running!
