What To Bring

Michigan weather is known to change, and with our position on Lake Huron, things are never dull around here! Check our weather link for the best idea of what to pack, but generally, you will want to bring clothing that spans at least 3 of the 4 seasons.

In summer, prepare for temperatures anywhere from 50s at night, to 80-90s in the day. For fall, plan on a range of 30-60 degrees. For winter, expect a range of sub-zero to 40 degrees. Spring can range from 30 at night to 50 in the day
