It’s summertime in Michigan, and we’re off-grid.
Returning in popularity, overlanding is self-sufficient travel to remote spots. It’s about getting off the grid and exploring the wilderness. Michigan is rich with overlanding destinations and Fox & Oden whiskey wants to come along for the ride. This whiskey is meant to be enjoyed in and amongst the “rugged bounty and natural beauty of Michigan.” Enjoy it fireside, in the woods, and as an adventure companion. Explore some of our favorite Michigan overlanding destinations below:
Boasting miles upon miles of scenic ORV trails, Drummond Island is a Lake Huron gem nestled along the US-Canadian border. Take the ferry to access the island, then follow some of the many ORV trails to rustic campsites with impressive lake views.
Manistee National Forest
Central Michigan is home to the majestic Huron-Manistee National Forest. With dispersed camping allowed in the majority of the forest, the two combined forests of the Manistee and the Huron offer close to a million acres of some of the most beautiful wilderness of the lower peninsula.
The Keweenaw in the upper peninsula is a paradise for mountain bikers, paddlers, and ATVers alike. A jewel of the UP, the Keweenaw has rocky crags and lush forests overlooking Lake Superior.
Silver Lake Sand Dunes
What would Michigan be without its distinctive dunes? The Silver Lake dunes are the only dunes east of the Mississippi that you can take a private vehicle on, and open season runs April through October.
Far in the northwest corner of the upper peninsula sit the Porcupine Mountains. As a destination, the Porkies are amongst the best. With gorgeous campsites and miles of trails we recommend the Porcupine Mountains as the prime spot to conclude your Michigan overlanding adventure.
