If U want 2 consider doing the west MI. side of MI (east side of lake MI), Charlevoix has a good launch. Use it about every w/e in the summer. about 30 miles or so nw to Beaver and up around the top 2 Mac., not sure-60-70 miles maybe!! Good luck, Wrink

Yes I have boated over there a few time and love it but first big trip for my girlfriend on the boat and I love the Lake Crossing. Always like the Flatiron grill in Petosky

There is a very nice launch in Sturgeon Bay with easy in and out. We left our truck and trailer there for a week and everything was OK when we got back.

I've also launched my 38 Cigarette, numerous times @ Sturgeon Bay and it is one of the nicest public, cement, ramps that I have ever used.
I second Sturgeon Bay.

Put in at Sturgeon Bay, then you have the option to run on Lake Michigan or Green Bay. Very nice ramps, great parking and safe.

The ramp I used was at Sawyer Park in Sturgeon Bay. There are other ramps further north, but if you have a bigger boat, it will get tight.

PS, there is a West Marine and gas about 1 mile south of the launch ramp.

yes when I used to do the Sturgeon Bay poker run I put in there quite a bit
I Usually put in in Marinette and when go to washington Island for the night then acrross to Petosky/Charlovoix/Beaver then headed to Makinaw then back through Escanaba. I also hit Lake superior through the Soo Lock on one trip
I am a little time limited and wanted to hit Beaver/Petosky/ Makinaw and Escanaba so I really need to put in closer to Escanaba.

I have not ruled out just putting in at Manistique

Thanks for the help so far
