    Who has the a membership to Thousand Trails? I live pretty close to it, but I've never been there because I can't afford the membership. How much are the annual dues?

    I am not a member of Thousand Trails but we have a written agreement for the PopUp Portal to have a rally at this location for our members. You do not need to be a Thousand Trails member to attend.

    Re: Michigan - General Rally Thread

    I'm really excited about this rally. This will be the first PUP rally in Michigan and know that it will be a great one. The campground is about 12 miles from Port Huron and has 220 acres of wooded wilderness, valleys, rolling hills and a small flowing river. I hope to go out there soon and take some pictures to post.

    I drove out to the campground to have a look around and take pictures. Its a nice looking campground and the staff is very friendly. Most of the sites look to be shady, level, and decent in size. There are no camper pads and all sites have electrical and water hook ups, but no sewer hook ups. They have a nice looking pool, a play ground, mini golf thats free, and a family lodge with game area, exercise room, laundry room, and WiFi.

    Thanks for the pictures Julie! It's looks nice, I love when places are heavily wooded like that. I might actually consider buying their "one park" membership next year, since I only live about 35 minutes from it. But their website hardly had any pictures so I had no idea what it looked like. But now I do :)

    Ok, my hand is up, I have a question; I am not a card carrying member, nor do I own my pup anymore. Will the CG allow me in with the popup portal rally, I don't mind camping just on the perimeter of the pups if need be, I just would like to join you since I am from MI and it would be my first popupportal rally. I am camping in an 18 foot no slides travel trailer.

    Same question as Kamper0706. We want to come but no longer have a PUP. Can we still come as part of the PUP rally? We have a 27' Motorhome with no slides.

    Re: Great Lakes Region - General Rally Thread

    I'm new to the pop-up scene (to be precise, I just bought my first PUP yesterday). This looks really cool but since the original post is from September and since I also saw a posting for this on another site, I'm guessing all 15 spots at Thousand Trails are gone. So, are they?
