Hi,
I am not familar with Bois Blanc Island and am excited to learn about it. My boyfriend and I are coming up this weekend to camp out... any suggestions on where to go? I was told that the North Shore is the best, however all the spots are probably taken by now? Are there good spots around the inland lakes? also can we bring our dog over ? Like I said =) Im very new to the island. From what I have read it seems like an amazing place we are really excited about goin up there.
Id appreciate any suggestions =) like where the snakes hang out and dong hang out. haha..
Thank you!!!

You can bring your dog, if you don't find anyplace to camp on the north shore I think there is a camping spot on Thompson lake. I don't know if there are any others.

I hope you have planned to stay long enough to explore around and see the island. It is bigger than one would think!

Wherever you camp, you will have a great time. Go to the west end or spring for the ferry ride to see the Mac city/island fireworks on the 4th. Blow you away!

Enjoy,
C

Welcome to the Board, and have a great time on Bois Blanc. In answer to your question, the snakes may hang out pretty much anywhere, but we try not to let our dong hang out (sorry, couldn't resist that one Wink ).

Most of the snakes are relatively harmless. There are Mississauga rattlers, which try to avoid people, but it's always a good idea to watch where you step.

Hope to see you on the Island!

Take care,
Dan

Welcome aboard the site, and most assuredly, welcome to Bois Blanc!! I work at Hawks Landing Island Store, if you get a chance to stop in there while you're on the island, be sure to introduce yourselves.

Rebecca sorry to hear you didn't make it this week. There is plenty of rustic camping on the island. The North side being my favorate, "end of the Bible road". But where ever you camp I think you will enjoy it. If you need anything while over there just ask. Most of your Islanders will help I haven't seen one that wouldn't yet. It is a nice place you will like it.
