Its hard to imagine but it has been over 6 years since we last visited Clear Lake State Park. This was once a place we favored over the other state parks. The reason for our departure from this park was their electrical problems. You can read more about the problems in this previous post. I am glad to see that in our absence, they have corrected this problem.
Something else we discovered this year was the addition of internet access. This area has always been a dead spot when it came to cellular service. I am not saying that the service is great now but it IS present and we even got a bar of 4G on occasion.
Several mornings in a row we saw park attendants show up to put this sign up on the beach. The reason was that each night someone would come along and take it back down. This happened all weekend long. Not sure exactly who was responsible, but I did see this kid show up the day before everyone left the park to take a number of selfies next to the sign.
I want to give a shout out to this place we discovered during one of our day-trips. The place is AJ’s Berry Farm in Lachine, Michigan (Just 15 miles west of Alpena on M-32). Here you will discover homegrown fruits and vegetables sold in a small farm market by the family. If you are in the area, I highly recommend you stop and check them out.
