Camping in the Manistee National Forest

I went last weekend with my brother in law John who's walked the trail before. There were lots of other hikers, canoers and views of the river from high up.manistee river canoe, manistee national forest, camping

we had all day to hike 15 miles, stopping for lunch and to fish in the river.
around 2am it started pouring with rain and there was tons of thunder and lightning
it's hard to tell here but it rained so hard that my pack got a little wet, but was fine in the morning.
