    I thought it might be helpful to have a single thread devoted to trip plans. This would allow others looking to travel along similar routes one easy thread to review when trying to find charging options. With this in mind here is the list of my charging stops on the 2 long trips I have taken in my Model S.
    I would ask that this thread be limited to people posting charging routes.

    These are the places where I charged in my recent trip around the Lake Michigan


    Normal Supercharger


    Tesla Showroom, Oakbrook


    Two Rivers , WI - villageinnwi.com, this is a motel with a RV campground attached to it, call them ahead and they will give you a room and book a 50 amp RV site for you. Though initially they asked for a fee, eventually they did not.


    Sturgeon Bay, WI - chal-amotel.com, This is a motel and they have 110V outlets


    Harbour village resort, Egg Harbour, WI - This is a camp ground, 50 amps, we camped here for a night, they charged for an RV site, There are no cabins here, there are many campgrounds in this area with cabins, need to call ahead.


    Munising Tourist park campground, Munising, MI - Munising Tourist Park Camp Ground | Just another WordPress site, camped here, 50 amp charging, they will charge for a RV site.


    Tall Pines Motel: Home, we did not stay here because we wanted to camp but this is a motel with a campground attached to it. call ahead and you can get 50amp and a room.


    Petoskey KOA, Petoskey MI - well maintained KOA with cabins and lodges too. we camped here. 50 amp charging, they charged 15$ per night for charging apart from the campsite charge.


    Beech street rd, Muskegon - Chargepoint EVSE, free, city owned, on a beautiful beach, great sunset, there is curious crowd there. we spent few hrs to pick up miles to reach Holland


    Holland, MI - DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Holland, Chargepointe, Free to charge, I did a overnight charge here


    Lighthouse premium outlets , MIchigan city, IN, 2$ per hour and charging rate is about 18 miles per hour. we did not really need a charge to get to our destination Oakbrook but since we were there for about 3hrs we charged any way.


    Friends home 110 V for 2 days, I could have gone to Tesla showroom I Oak Brook if I was in a Hurry.
