  1. Hi,

    Just thought I’d write…I was surprised you don’t have the state park’s site! http://www.MackinacParks.com and it has the sites, then in the upper right hand corner a “Kids and Teachers” section.

    Hope you can use it.

    • Thanks, I must have skipped over it when I was looking at the Pure Michigan site to find more detailed information. But, I forgot to go back and include the Mackinac State Historic Parks site. Feel free to write back if you come across anymore sites on Mackinac State Parks!

    • I did miss the link for Teachers and Students, thanks for pointing that out to me! There are great resources there! Thanks for your help!!
