You can't miss this place. It has a Bigfoot statue out front. The legend is that the odor of all the great beef and chicken pasties made here lured the creature out of the woods.
When it comes to making the Upper Peninsula of Michigan's unofficial food, nobody in these parts of the UP along Lake Superior makes better pasties than Muldoons.

My wife and I wanted to get away but still had to go to work. We own a business in Waterford, MI, so we stayed here for a week. Loops Y & Z are larger sites and more secluded. Close enough to the city but a nice quiet place.
Well wooded campground with full and electric/water only sites. There are two different sides to the park separated by a gate across the drive. One side has upscale larger sites with small ponds, etc and the other side has normal sites.
The campground is very close to Sleeping Bear Dunes and the Pierce Stocking Scenic drive.
The Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park consists of over 60,000 acres and contains the largest tract of old-growth hardwood forests west of the Adirondacks.
The State Park is home to black bears, deer, wolves, river otters, and even moose, as well as rare woodland plants that depend on the old-growth forest habitat that abounds here.
Visiting the virgin forests, free-fowing rivers and undisturbed beaches of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness is like taking a step back in time. There are great hiking and mountain bike trails here and hundreds of waterfalls, secluded lakes, wild rivers, and streams.

The Wilderness Visitor Center should be your first stop in the Porkies. It’s located along the South Boundary Road, three miles west of Silver City on M-107.
Here, you can:
check on trail conditions
register for backpacking
get directions to scenic sites
check wildlife sightings
note the interpretive activities and guided hikes schedule (see below!)
The center has an exhibit hall featuring natural communities of the mountains and native wildlife species including fisher, goshawk, gray wolf, porcupine, peregrine falcon, bear, and beaver. The exhibit hall also displays the history of the Porcupine Mountains from prehistoric copper miners to the lumber camps of the early 1900s.
Just outside the Visitor Center is an easy and enjoyable, self-guided nature trail. This mile-long loop takes about 45 minutes and highlights the wildlife and other natural features of the northwoods.
The Visitor Center is open from mid-May through mid-October.

This is where Mike bought his 2020 Leisure Travel Vans Wonder RTB. He comes here a lot and uses the great service team here to install many of the gadgets and gizmos he tests for his YouTube RV Lifestyle Channel videos. Here's one of them with his favorite tech - https://youtu.be/_a7dwgQ0VG4
This is where we bought our RV and get it serviced! Great crew.
It is a great place to get tasty and interesting homemade jams, jellies, and baked goods. It is operated by monks of Poorrock abbey. It is open seasonally from May through mid October. They are closed on Sunday and Monday. It is definitely worth the stop!
