Another Visit to Ocqueoc Falls

Last weekend I met my son and family for a weekend of camping ten miles west of Rogers City, Michigan, at Ocqueoc Falls State Forest Campground. My daughter-in-law arrived an hour ahead of me and reserved two campsites, directly across the road from each other.

Ocqueoc 8-18

It did rain Friday night into Saturday morning, then a bit later Saturday afternoon, but we had plenty of shelter so that didn’t slow us down at all.

The grandkids couldn’t wait to get into the water at the falls, but Abby wasn’t so sure she liked the water temperature; I can’t say I blame her!

PA Tregurtha-Calcite

No trip to Ocqueoc would be complete for a couple “boat nerds” like my son and I without visiting the limestone quarry at Calcite, just south of Rogers City on Lake Huron. We arrived just in time to see the Lee A. Tregurtha pulling in to pick up a load of limestone. She joined the H. Lee White which had just completed loading.

On the way back to camp, we stopped at Plath’s Meats in Rogers City to pick up a little jerky and a few beef sticks. Excellent! Plath’s has been making fantastic meats for over 100 years. As they say, “Bacon makes everything better!” Here…watch for yourself: Under the Radar at Plath’s Meats

We had a great time together, made even better with Melanie’s delicious cooking for everyone! I headed for home around 1:00 Sunday afternoon, leaving the kids to enjoy the waterfalls one final time before traveling home themselves.
