        Sufficient for a night on our way to the upper peninsula. It was great to be so close to the water, but could hear people on the beach until after midnight. It might be good to have a quiet time? We would stay again though.

        I've seen a few trying but I've never seen anyone catching anything. I've been told the fishing is good on the Cheboygan River near the dam. That's about 20 minutes south of us. Kim Phillips Owner Clearwater Lakeshore Motel
