Morel Mushroom Getaway
May is Morel Mushroom Mania in Michigan and Treetops sits smack-dab in the middle of some prime hunting areas.
The Gaylord area is surrounded by spectacular morel mushroom hunting spots. The DNR suggests that large burn sites in forested areas are ideal for morel mushroom hunting, especially in burned areas where jack, white or red pine once grew.
Treetops Resort is:
- 11 miles from a 115-acre prescribed burn in Otsego County
- 17 miles from the Pigeon River Country State Forest
- 26 miles from the Gaylord State Forest
- 28 miles from Hartwick Pines State Park, one of the last remaining stands of old growth virgin Eastern white pine forest
These are just a few, there are plenty more!
You might consider planning a morel getaway during the National Morel Mushroom Festival in Boyne City, scheduled for May 16-19, 2019. (Just a 30 mile drive).
Morel season starts about six weeks after the snow has melted and is gone in just a few weeks. The internet chatter is saying we should see them start to pop around Mother's Day weekend this year...May 10ish....but do your research.
