Two storms systems in the last week have left their mark on Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and park staff there are alerting late fall/winter campers to some changes.
According to MLive.com, last Tuesday’s (Oct. 24) storm, and another round Saturday, whipped Lake Superior’s shore, leaving a mess at some of the park’s coastline campsites, forcing them to close.
“On the Lakeshore, Union Bay campground is buried in debris and rock. Lower campground loop closed,” park staff posted on Facebook on Sunday, with pictures of the debris-strewn sites.
Campsites in the park’s higher elevations were blanketed in snow after Friday’s storm. More winter weather could be on the way.
The National Weather Service in Marquette is calling for lake effect snow falling at the rate of an inch an hour in some parts of the U.P., with gusty winds leading to whiteout conditions at times.
