Michigan State Forest Campgrounds: A Better Way to Spend a Vacation

from:

Let’s face it—when it comes to camping destinations, there are a myriad of places from which to choose. There are camp sites near mountains and camp sites near beaches. There are campgrounds that are best suited for hikers and campgrounds that are best equipped to handle bikers. Still, if you’re planning to travel through the Midwest, you may find no finer camping facilities than Michigan state forest campgrounds. They are pet-friendly, family-friendly, and definitely couple-friendly. In fact, the hospitality alone may keep you coming back for vacation years on down the line.

Michigan state forest campgrounds are certainly extensive, since there are more than 140 such campgrounds in the Wolverine state. Surf the Internet, and you’ll discover Michigan state forest campgrounds located all along the state’s northern Lower Peninsula and Upper Peninsula. In fact, Michigan state forest campgrounds cover just about four million acres of state forest land.

The Michigan state forest campgrounds are situated on rivers or lakes, meaning that they are exceptional locations for boating and fishing. Many of these sites are also appropriate for hiking, horseback riding, biking, and bird watching. Other possible activities at these campgrounds include everything from cross-country skiing to mushroom hunting. Interestingly enough, some of the campsites are so isolated that they can only be accessed by hiking through the woods or rowing down a riverway.

One lovely example of Michigan state forest campgrounds is Brimley State Park, which is located along Lake Superior’s Whitefish Bay. At Brimley, you can enjoy boating, fishing, and hiking along the scenic waterway. While hunting is banned at Brimley, it is permissible nearby—an area rich in deer, bears, and grouse.

Another Michigan campground worth exploring is Lime Island State Forest. There, you can choose from tent camping or cottage living, depending on your personal preferences. In order to get to the island, you have to charter a boat across St. Mary’s River. Also, because Lime Island is home to black bears, you need to be careful to secure your food. While pets are permitted on the island, they are not allowed in campground buildings. Among the activities you can enjoy on Lime Island are fishing, hiking, and sunbathing.

You might also consider Highland Recreation Area as a possible camping destination in Michigan. It includes nearly 6,000 acres of forestland, marshes, and lakes in the southern part of the state—an area known for its hilly landscape. The site is appropriate for hiking, skiing, horseback riding, fishing, boating, and mountain biking. While there, you can also enjoy swimming, picnicking, and volleyball.
