Dana's is located in the Hiawatha National Forest in the heart of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and overlooks beautiful AuTrain Lake. This blog is an informal addition to our website where we'll share some of our daily activities with our partners, the guests of Dana's Lakeside Resort. Enjoy!

It seems they’ve started messing around with the dam down the road, making the water in our lake all weird, green and murky and full of seaweed. I think it is slowly clearing, but it’s pretty darn gross for now. Though it hasn’t stopped guests from getting out there in the kayaks and having a good time. Aside from that it’s been a beautiful sunny day with temps around 72. Tonight is the last peak of the Perseids Meteor Shower, we’ve been seeing some awesome ones the last few days - even just driving down the road we spot them. Look up!
