Mark your calendars for our annual Winter Trip to northern Lower Michigan. Trip date is Jan 12-17, 2017 which is the MLK Holiday weekend. This is Thurs to Tues however you can arrive and leave whenever you’d like during that time.
Outdoor activities include cross country skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing, sledding, exploring the woods, geocashing, bird watching and down hill skiing. Indoors you can cozy up to the wood stove for games, music, pleasant conversation or quiet reading. The lodge holds 28 people and the trip is usually full.

Cost: $28 per person per night. Kids under 17 are half price and under 4 yrs are free. We often have kids on the trip.
How do I reserve my place? Send a check (payable to Carey Jones) for the # nights you plan to attend. Tell me what nights you will be there so we can plan rooms and food. We can accommodate changes to your number of nights. I can give a full refund up to 2 weeks before the trip but no refund after that. Make sure I have your email address as that is how we will coordinate.
Food: We organize group meals, bring food with us, and use the lodge’s large stocked kitchen.
Housing: In a dormitory with 2 beds per room. 2 rooms share a bathroom. Bring your bedding, towels, and, if you like a warm room, a space heater.
Transportation: I’ll help organize car pooling.
No pets allowed and no smoking inside.
Alcohol is allowed.
Winter Equipment: The Station does not rent winter gear so organize that before hand.
