Loved the show. I have traveled the lower part of Ontario quite often, but never ventured to the Bruce Peninsula.  It certainly will be on my list of places I want to visit.

Great show, wonderful PBS program.  We so appreciate learning about places to enjoy nature.  This is especially important for the kids (I believe.)

The Ogemaw region appeared to be very relaxing and colorful. It would be an interesting area of Michigan to visit.

Was able to see with the wife Saturday, really enjoyed Ogemaw County.. We stumbled on the Fair Grounds a couple of years ago, what a find!!!  But Saturday's show had other real good ideas That we plan to explore this Summer.  Thanks again for producing really good programming about our beautiful State of Michigan.

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy your programs, all of them!!! My little family and I have camped along Lake Huron and Lake Superior for the last 30 years, in my youth with my own parents, in Canada, Michigan and  elsewhere. It is a treat to see the areas that you feature, some we have seen but mostly not yet explored....I have some planning to do.

I thought it was a very well done. We have a cabin at Houghton Lake. We are new to that area. It has been experiencing a real downturn in the economy. Hopefully, your program will encourage people to come visit the area. We love to kayak the Muskegon River. Thanks for giving us more information that we can share with our friends and family.

This episode of Houghton Lake was great!  The Houghton Lake area is such a perfect example of what Michigan really has to offer.  Thanks to all the hard working individuals that make this awesome program come together!  Have a Great Summer All of You!

Teddy Janiuk - Jackson, MI

I came across your web site and you tube page while doing research for a trip up to the Big Island Lake Wilderness.  Your video is so helpful and the photos are great.  We are a group of kayakers in the Jackson area that like to get out and paddle and we are looking at doing the BILW area in the spring. Thanks again for all the help!
