Moose Drop at Van Riper State Park
Van Riper State Park located on Lake Michigamme about a half hour west of Marquette. We learned from their informative moose kiosk in the park that they used helicopters for moose drops to repopulate the UP. They also showed us what a moose hoof print looks like as well as its droppings. They have free wifi at the modern campground, lots of super trails to hike with views of the Peshekee River. The park stays open all year.
