Surrounded by the Great Lakes, Michigan campgrounds offer a big-water experience many wouldn’t expect in the middle of the country. Enjoy camping near sandy beaches, lighthouses and bays filled with pleasure boats. Hop a ferry to Mackinac Island, a charming auto-free vacation escape. Inland, lakes and rivers sparkle amid pine forests, where a tent, cabin or RV makes a great base for fishing, hiking and other outdoor pursuits. The Detroit auto legacy provides a number of attractions, including world-class museums and auto-baron mansions.
