Nordhouse Dunes | MI Boondocking

Michigan is absolutely stunning and if you're lucky, there's even a fair amount of boondocking to be had. Unfortunately for us, we need a pretty big spot and an accessible route to get to it. PLUS we really need cell service to be able to work. This limited us a lot but we did find this gem of an area. There are sites all along Forest Trail Rd near Morton Rd so you might want to scout first to find the best one.
