Over 100 hunting/recreational camps in the Ottawa National Forest in Michigan's Upper Peninsula have to be removed or destroyed by January 1, 2017 or 90 days later the United States Forest Service will.
“UP a River” is a cultural documentary about the people who built decades of traditions around these camps. Laughs are shared, tears are shed and all agree that "goin' to camp" is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime.
"UP a River" documents what may be the end of an era for many people with ties to these U.P. camps.
