For the most part we camp mostly around our area or within a couple hundred miles. Would love to take a trip out west when I can get time which there doesn't seem to be enough of. I keep saying I want less to do but it seems as I get older I keep getting more to do.
I am a realtor and outdoorsman. Love traditional archery and am a avid Bear Archery collector.
Yes, 2 beagles but they are both buried in the back yard. We certainly do miss them but being dog free makes it easier to travel now.
anywhere its peaceful
Lived in Grayling since 1976,
29' Nomad tag, 12' slide, we love the layout of it with its big bathroom and kitchen. Furthest we have traveled with it is to Norfolk, Va and the shenandoah national park skyline drive where it really made me wish I had a diesel.
I’m very grateful for the convenient overnight stay at Pete the Greek’s business. I found a fairly level spot, so I didn’t have to level or unhook. Pete stopped by to say “Hello” and asked if I was okay. I headed out early next morning. Thank you, Pete! I’m will definitely visit again when I’m in the area.
Was short notice, but Pete was quick to respond and provided us a nice quiet place to spend the night. Easy access, level spot and a great host.
Thank you Pete for a great quiet spot to rest before completing our journey home. So conveniently located off of I75. We grabbed coffee at the gas station on the corner before hitting the road in the morning. Thanks for your hospitality!
What a restful night we spent behind Pete’s business. So conveniently located off of I75. Thanks for the perfect spot to catch some ZZZZ’s after a long day of travel.
We enjoyed out quiet time at this spot in the small town. We rode our bikes around the back streets and small park across the highway with very little traffic.
Host was friendly and we would recommend this location.
Pete was very accommodating and his place is one of the easiest to get in/out I've stayed at! Very quiet area, and able to park right behind the bldg. where I was shaded from the western sun. Great place to overnight if you're through this way.
Pete hooked us up to electric which was surely appreciated as we stayed several days. If you are a winter camper and snowmobile his place is a must. He is very knowledgeable of the area.
Great conversation about his collection and the bears in his yard.
What a super jump off point to both the east and west of MI.
From here we explored Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. Gorgeous NP that many do not realize exists. Warning climb the dunes but if you plan to view the lake it’s a 2.5 miles hike.
Also cute small town Charlevoix, love the mushroom homes. Also drove east to Oskado. Pretty drive along the Au Sable. Picnicking along the way.
Michigan is gorgeous and we live their dedication to their surroundings and getting folks out there to enjoy it.
This was our second stay with Pete while on our way to Ontario. Pete is friendly and helpful. His parking place is next to his business on the grass and is level. We always sleep well here. Thanks Pete, we feel like we have made a new friend.
My husband stayed only 1 night during their travail. Nice spot to hide behind the business and quiet. Perfect for a 12 hr stop over. Thanks
We stayed at the hosts place of business in town. The spot was flat and large with plenty of room for us to get out and stretch our legs after a long day. Pete came by with his family to meet us. He is a really nice guy, it was to cold to sit outside and we have a Class B van so we didn’t visit as long as I wish we could have. Town is really quiet for a good nights sleep. There is a gas station, restaurant and bar a very short walk away. I would gladly stay here again.
We stayed one night and unfortunately did not get to meet Pete, however he was very helpful and friendly on the phone. He also told us about a nearby restaurant that we enjoyed very much! We hope to meet in person some day!
Such a quaint little community. Nice little restaurant/bar just down the road. Our hosts, Pete the Greek, were so cordial. They even made us the most delicious breakfast coney dogs we've ever had on the morning that we left.
You just want to become best friends right away with this guy... what a nice friendly soul. Had a very comfortable stay behind the business... not crowded...open space all around. Thanks Pete. Windmill camp.
Plans shifted so that I didn’t have time to stay here, but our communications were laid back and courteous. They were very accommodating. Will be contacting next summer if I’m passing through!
