UP, here we go again! CRAM's first-ever regatta site in the Upper Peninsula is quickly becoming a favorite and returns to the schedule once again! Now don't be too alarmed! It's about as close to the Lower Peninsula as possible, with the campground located near the Carp River just north of St. Ignace. Reddmann's Sleepy Hollow Campground is a hidden gem. Barbara Reddmann has been running the campground for years with the help of her children and has graciously allowed us to host our event. Our only ask is to please be aware that Barbara lives on-site and we should (as we always are) be polite and respectful guests.

CURRENT CONDITIONS (and FORECAST)



ACCOMMODATIONS
CAMPING - IMPORTANT!
A set number of sites have been put aside for us. That does not mean we cannot go over that number. Please call Barbara directly and reserve with her. It's worth noting that she only accepts cash or check. There are only a few electric sites, so if you will, please try to prioritize these for RVs. We can run extension cords from there or ask a friend to plug into his/her coach. The campground has nice vault-style toilets, however, there are no shower facilities. Water is available at the well; please leave it dripping to keep the prime. Please, no driving or parking in the middle field. If it's been a dry summer, we can store boats there, but please no parking or driving in any circumstance. 

(906) 643-8248

Non-electric: $20/night
Electric: $30/night

HOTELS
St. Ignace is just 15 minutes away, where there are plenty of hotels/motels to choose from.

STMB Site Plan
The beach is of soft sand and small rock (much better than the Google screenshot appears) and is well protected based on the prevailing winds. Water levels are down this year, so the beach is even bigger. The lake is still plenty deep in the bay, but not too deep for anchoring the RC boat and marks. 

Trailers and vehicles not associated with camping should be stored just west of the campground office.


HOSPITALITY
Get ready for a shrimp boil! The Harts are hosting a Low Country Boil which includes shrimp and sausage as well as potatoes, corn, and other small fixings. If you'd like to join in, the cost is $10. Please bring your own dishware and plasticware if you don't want to eat off the (covered) table.

We are going to try something a little different. The idea is to schedule the boil for the evening with the best weather or what is most conducive for sailing. Hoping for added flexibility. The other night you will be on your own.
