Republic, MichiganOctober 9th, 2017 – Over the past month I’ve been able to take in the fall colors in Western Marquette County. They’ve been in full swing over the past week. Two weeks ago I was camping at Moose Rapids Campground; a quaint little campground that is located 5 miles west of Republic. Moose Rapids Campground has a suggested donation vault of $5/per night. Well worth every penny!

There are 13 campsites situated on the Michigamme River. You won’t find any water, electricity, or dump sites here! This campground is quite far from civilization. You’ll hear nothing more than the sound of a stream, owls, wolves, leaves rustling in the wind, and the occasional crackles of a campfire on 40 acres of some of the most majestic wilderness in Western Marquette County.

No need to worry about booking a campsite here! Reservations are not required… or taken. When my friend and I arrived here two weeks ago we discovered no one else on site. It was just the sounds of the leaves and the Michigamme River in the foreground. Yep, Moose Rapids Campground is truly a weekend getaway… without the usual weekend distractions.

Hurry and get to Moose Rapids Campground while the fall colors are at their peak. Mother nature is calling, will you answer?
