About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

Campers will have fewer options for sites from now on, after the Department of Natural Resources announces the closure of twenty state forest campgrounds. The DNR is closing the campgrounds to help save $75,000 from its budget. The camps affected will close Monday, July 9th.

Camps were chosen from across Michigan. Affected camps are in Alpena, Antrim, Cheboygan, Chippewa, Crawford, Luce, Marquette, Oscoda, Otsego, Schoolcraft, Grand Traverse, and Wexford Counties. The camps were chosen based on several factors focusing on revenue generated from each camp. DNR officials say closing the twenty camps will save money for the program.

The remaining 118 state forest campgrounds will remain open all season. For a complete list of the closed campgrounds, click here.
