This guidebook is part of a series by Menasha Ridge Press for car campers who want a more nature-centered experience and who aren't looking for a slab to level their RV. I've used several books in the series and have found some great campsites, so I was happy to see the Michigan book released. The book divides Michigan into five regions: Southeast, Southwest, Northwest, Northeast, and the Upper Peninsula. As might be expected, the book recommends many campgrounds in northern Michigan and the UP but there are some close to Kalamazoo. Each chapter includes a description of the campground, a map of the sites, and recommendations for the best individual sites.
I teach economics at Kalamazoo College. My wife is also an economist. We were on sabbatical in Europe for the 2014-15 academic year. (Salamanca, Spain, followed by Oxford, UK.) We were in Uruguay for the 2006-7 academic year.
