Come check out awesome Manistee, Michigan. A quiet little town on the shore of Lake Michigan that we fell in love with. It truly is a beautiful and quiet town. We stayed at the Little River Casino RV Park, just north of town. Freighters travel from Lake Michigan down the Manistee River through town. There are two draw bridges that they have to pass through before reaching Manistee Lake, where Morton Salt is located. We didn’t get to see any ships while we were there, but we have seen photos and videos online and it’s a sight to see as they meander down the narrow river. There is even a Facebook group called “Manistee Ship Watch” where they keep up with all the info of the ships, when they arrive, depart, and even post pictures. Go check it out!
