I took this photo when camping in Petoskey, Michigan at the Petoskey State Park. Photo approved for use in blogs and websites linking back to MichiganSweetSpot.com.

Michigan’s fun loving Kid Rock was probably singing about this Michigan campsite or one like it in his hit song “All Summer Long” where he references summer in northern Michigan.

It’s a bit of a joke among my family members that I “hate” camping. I’ve been rethinking that after my trip last summer. This photo was taken at sunset, right on the beach just a few feet from my campsite. It’s hard to complain about roughing it when you can go to bed with this nearby and wake up in the morning to a refreshing walk along the sugar sand shoreline.
