Camping Destinations: Yankee Springs Recreation Area

In Michigan, with snow still on the ground and more snow in the forecast, it’s safe to say that spring has not sprung yet. It may still be cold out, but we know that the warm summer months are just around the corner. And in Michigan, the arrival of warm weather means school is almost out and when it is out, summer vacation is on!  So, with summer vacation just around the corner, have you made your summer vacation plans yet?
