Campers took advantage of their last opportunity to enjoy the outdoors before the school year begins. Even with rain most of the weekend, Michigamme Shores Campground was nearly full for the holiday. Campground owners say that this year was no different than most Labor Day weekends despite the weather. Only a handful of sites were empty. Campers were even out swimming and boating when the weather cleared up on Sunday.
"We were all sweating the weather obviously and the forecast was doom and gloom for the weekend, but I was really surprised all the campers came out," Michigamme Shores Campground Owner and Manager Woody Taylor said. "All of my full hookups were taken, I only had a small handful of tent sites left, so everyone hung out through the whole weekend and I felt good for them."
Michigamme Shores is usually open from May 1st until mid October, weather permitting.
