In July my nephew and his wife spent time camping on Lake Michigan in the Upper Peninsula close to Historic Fayette, Michigan. I thank James for his beautiful photographs of the lake and woods.
Below is one of the furnaces in the remains of Fayette, a 19th Century community. The 711-acre Fayette Historic State Park blends both nature and history. The park features a historic townsite, harbor slips, a boat launch, a beach and campgrounds.

Beautiful photos. Thanks 4 sharing. The place looks so serene and what a lovely place to camp.
…I remember a camping trip to the Upper Peninsula as a kid, it was great.
Oh how I’d love to be at a secluded looking beach as lovely as that. Thanks James for sending the photos. We can travel through others.
that’s exactly what I’m doing – wishing I was sitting by a beautiful lake
What a beautiful area for camping.
Beautiful photoos. Your nephew and niece must have had a very relaxing vacation in this area. TFS
it is their favorite camping site – very relacing
Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos with us, Carol. I have always wanted to visit Northern Michigan. Such gorgeous scenery!
It is indeed a beautiful area with woods and lake. Happy Thursday
What a beautiful place to be!
Carol, Rick will be camping there next Sunday or Monday as he cycles the UP, camping along the way! I’ll show him these photos!
Carol, Rick wondered if he camped at the state park itself and was it a tent-camping park or only RV. Do you know?
no not really – he camps in a pop-up trailer and I believe the campground was out of the park but I don’t know – do u want me to ask James?
What beautiful photos. That looks like such a pretty area.
What a gorgeous area. I love the photos. I have a cousin who lives in that area. Reminds me I need to visit him!!
Peter I think when it’s safe to travel, you ought to take a trip to Michigan – autumn is nice, spring is lovely and summer is nice too. I’d skip winter if I were you. Lots of snow and ice.
How refreshing to see water!
Northern Michigan certainly looks like a pretty place!!
Michigan is indeed beautiful

I’ll pass on the camping but the views are incredible. Have a lovely week.
Beautiful photos. What a wonderful place to visit 🙂
Wow! Just stunning. We just got back from a short trip to the UP ourselves. There is so much to explore up there!
Oh Carol, this place is simply stunning! I could feel my blood pressure drop just looking at these photos. I’m not a big beach person, as I prefer the mountains, but a secluded spot like this is right up my alley! 🙂
Wow, we can just envision ourselves sitting there, listening to the waves crash in, and just simply be present in the moment. What a wonderful way to unwind and recharge. Thank you for sharing these photos. It’s *almost* as good as being there. Beautiful! 🙂
It is a serene place I must say and I would love to be there.
Carol – what a serene, special spot for camping. A shout-out to James for his wonderful photos. It looks as though they had the place to themselves! I was especially impressed with the shot of the furnace. Huge! Thanks for linking up to Mosaic Monday!

Worth a Thousand Words
It looks beautiful and restful! We have 2 vacations planned before the end of the year and both will be close to water. Cannot wait!
I agree – being by water is the best!
Such a serene place! The scenery is just beautiful.
