yooper cold weather

along with the cccold weather is about 350 inches of snow. they don't plow the snow just pack it down so the road is a few feet higher than summer.
have been there many years ago b4 airstream, used tent hoped for no black bears or motorcycle groups. had bad rain one yr and it flooded the campsites. we had to find place to stay then had to clean up tent full of mud
we still love the UP hope y'all will too

If you're into Boondocking, look for Sparrow Rapids Campground, in the Ottawa National Forest. There are only 6 campsites with no services, other than fire pits and out houses. The last time we were there we witnessed some workers removing the hand pump well, so bring your own water too.
Sounds really appealing so far?
There are some nice hiking opportunities and a very natural setting. In the fall, bare in mind it's also hunting season, so wear blaze orange or bright colours. Believe me the scenery is worth the price of staying here, and more. Oh did I forget to mention; it's free!

Actually, the do plow the roads, even the side streets. But except for the main highways, they do not usually get the pavement bare. So yes, most roads are covered by packed snow/ice for several months of the year.

Also, homeowners are very cognizant of where their snow blowers discharge the snow. They don't dare let one flake land on the neighbor's yard, as they need that space for their own snow.
