Does anyone know what the toll is for crossing over to St. Ignace? We will be traveling through Michigan and would like to cross over to St. Ignac and then work our way over to Madison. Any suggestions of State Parks on the St. Ignac side?

Check this out for fares:

Mackinac Bridge Fare Schedule - Mackinac Bridge Authority

As for state parks Tahquamenan Falls is pretty much a standard stop if you are in the area:

DNR - Tahquamenon Falls State Park

.... and from there you will want to see the Shipwreck Museum:

Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, A maritime museum in upper peninsula Michigan on Whitefish Point

Enjoy your trip.

It is not a state park, but the federal campground at Brevort lake was very nice. Big sites and lots of waterfront. No electric, nor showers, just flush toilets in the bathrooms. It is about 10 or so miles west of St. Ignace on US-2.

As you cross to the St. Ignace side of the bridge there is a dandy little State Park to camp in. I don't remember the name of it. You will see signs tho. Wooded and nice roads when we were there in 05. They have several spots in the park where you can drive up to and take photos back at the bridge. It is only a little ways from the Maritime Museum, which we enjoyed seeing. The beach on the nw side of the bridge is a great place to walk and take pictures of the bridge. Nice pebble beach. We had a great time there. Mid summer and the water was still really frigid! Have a safe journey.
