For Friday, June 25, 2021. Au Gres Area lodging options below. Also check West Branch, Standish, Tawas City, Bay City and area rental homes through VRBO, Airbnb, HomeAway, etc. Need restaurant options or other help? Try the Au Gres Chamber of Commerce site.
For Saturday June 26, 2021. We recommend Silver sponsor Ludington Pier House Motel, next to the finish, heated pool and Lake Michigan views from many rooms or the Stearns Hotel (ask for a room away from the nightclub). Many other options in town if these fill. Both options booked? For campgrounds or to sleep in your vehicle (not allowed at Stearns Park at finish), Cartier Park Campground is the closest, just 1 mile north.
Also, if necessary or for more of a wilderness experience, consider staying a bit further away than Ludington such as at free, dispersed camping in the Manistee National Forest or the Pere Marquette River KOA (cabins, etc.). If you are headed south after the race (or north on Friday before the race), consider searching in Pentwater, Hart, Grand Rapids, Muskegon, etc.
