Red stripe, I live in the Cadillac area. I don't know what kind of "family" vacation you guys are planning. The reason I ask is because my buddy from downstate may be coming up. He's a riot but should NOT be allowed children (or wives/girlfriends sometimes).

LOL, I have friends like that as well!! I am not sure what kind of "family" vacation its going to be either
We are staying at the Cadillac Days inn and trailering from there all weekend.
What launch ramp are you using on Elk lake? I've been to the one (looked pretty new and very nice) downtown somewhere near the dam I think (right off 31) Is this the ramp you use?

that launch in Elk rapids is the only good one for anyone with larger boats. Was up there the fourth..the Dockside had great food and the best service I have had in 10 years. Have Fun

Red Stripe, I put in at whitewater park. It's a campground/ramp. I have no idea what road it is off from it has been so long(way too long). All I know is I go North on 131 until I hit the storage buildings, then turn left and follow that until it forks and go right. Then follow that and cross the "casino road" (31, I think). Once you cross that road it's like 2-3 miles on your right.

The last time I was up there(last year) I launched at the north end (Torch Village) Nice little ramp...ok parking. And just rode down the few miles to the sandbar. If you'd like a place to stay the Lamplight Inn in Central lk is right down the road (neat old hotel and great food) as well as several motels on M 31 in Eastport.
Andrews steak house in Bellaire is owned by an OSO member and he has great food. Molly Mquires was a pretty good bar and Nannys in Charlivoix has good food.
Just my nickels worth
