Wild blueberries in MI?

I know we produce tons of standard blueberries, but does Michigan produce any wild blueberries?When I say wild, I don't necessarily mean foraged, just the "wild" lowbush cultivar with the tiny berries. They're pretty easy to find in Ontario, but I haven't found them here yet. I miss them!
There's a lot of blueberry picking around Marquette. I like to go to Sands Township, which is near K.I. Sawyer Airport in Gwinn. There's also good picking near Hogback Mountain north of town. Right now people are out, but I hear that the berries are small this year.
I have wild blueberries at my cabin east of Grayling on the Au Sable and many of the trails I walk while fly fishing have blueberries and raspberries along them.
