This is the front of the freight terminal. At first I was just going to drive by and take a few pictures, but as there wasn't much traffic I decided to take a close look.
Behind the main building were several abandoned trailers.
Looking in the front door.
Both of these windows were open, causing the curtains to flutter and bang against each other. Made me wonder more than once if I was alone in there.
Hallway leading past the other bedrooms and into the living room.
The previous owners didn't leave anything valuable.

The previous occupant had some rather... erotic tastes.
Not satisfied with a few shots from the doorway, I climbed in to take a closer look.
The previous occupant didn't have very good taste in movies.
Camp Daggett is a summer camp in Petoskey, MI.
Into the main living area. I can't describe in words just how terrible this trailer smelled.
The living room had seen better days.
The fridge was still well-stocked. The trailer must have been abandoned recently, since the food hadn't spoiled yet.
"Is it butter?" must be the generic equivalent of "I can't believe it's not butter!"
Found this on the ground outside the trailer as I was leaving.
Looking between the trailers.
Now, on to the freight terminal.
Abandoned equipment behind the terminal.

Ground control to Major Tom...
South side of the freight terminal.
The most obvious way in was through a semi trailer that was propped up against the dock.
There really wasn't much left inside.
Looking inside the office.
I flipped over the piece of paper, but there was nothing else. Some sort of literacy test?
Another view of the office.
A restroom attached to the office.
I'm assuming there was a basketball hoop at one point.
Another look at the offices.
Heading back out.
To the north of the freight terminal was another building.
Not much in here either.
Restrooms next to the offices.
I went back to the trailers for a quick peek at the ones I'd missed before.
Somebody had been poking around in these fairly recently.
I didn't spend much time looking around this one.
Michigan in the fall is kind of nice.
I spent about a half hour there before calling it quits and moving on.
Overall, a pretty interesting place. Route 127 can be kind of busy, but so long as you park behind the freight terminal you should be fine.
One word of caution: You'll end up smelling like damp trailer park if you linger too long in the trailers.
