Traveling up the lake, we visit another National Recreation Area: Marcus Island Campground. It’s still winter, and any roads that are not main roads have some snow and ice left. Within a few feet of leaving the main road, it turns downhill with a hairpin turn at the bottom. Full of icy snow, it’s time for 4 low … and we creep until we get to a straight stretch.
There is not a soul here. The island is ours! I’ve always wanted my own island – and here it is.
OK … go back to the entrance and fill out the payment slip … deposit payment … look around the rest of the island … and, there is absolutely nobody around, for miles. Perfect.
Yup … this is our new Lake House. It’s getting late in the day, there is good wi-fi signal, and it’s time for a little work in our new location. Good night.
After a great nights rest, let’s see what the morning brings. There was a LOT of racket outside around 6am – down by the beach area beyond our Lake House. And, oooo, it is wintery outside! This is what the “house” looks like in the morning mist …
Maybe a little breakfast and a little work before venturing outside again.
Hey … let’s go outside now that it’s warm.
It looks like winter may turn into spring here. Since we’ve got the island to ourselves, let’s investigate our new property!
Nice view. Step on a little further to where it sounded like a convention this morning.
Canada Geese … and they’ve flown the coop now. I’ll bet their passports were not up to date.
Click on the picture above to see the “Lake House”. And out the front door, what do we have?
Well, this is a nice location. But what happens when I get tired of the beach … tired of the woods. Then what?
Sold, I say. How much? $2.50 a night? And someone else maintains the roads?
Gotta love winter camping – amazing views, quiet campgrounds, and a time to really enjoy the gifts we’ve been given.

After looking at this blog i realize we have been there. Didn’t camp though. We were just passing through checking out camp spots. It was during the summer and it was busy. I like it at this time of the year as you’ve posted.
Never tried winter camping (we go to a cabin), but it actually looks very nice.
