Platte River Park

Been camping there since it was a county park in the 60's. Be sure to go out to the mouth of the Platte swimming. There can be a 30 degree difference between the river and Lake Mich put only a few yards away.

Thanks to everyones ideas, we have decided to head up to Ludington and spend about 4 nights at the state park. We reserved a site in the Pines campground. We are planning on taking in the sights around that area and also taking a day trip up along the coast to Sleeping Bear. If anyone has any other suggestions on what to see in the area of Ludington and anywhere up to Sleeping Bear, let me know. Also, what are the best roads to take. You guys are the greatest! This is our first longer trip with our first TT and we are excited but kind of nervous about it too. We have only taken the camper out 3 times since we bought it and they were all to the local state park, which is only about a 30 minute drive.

As noted by others here there are many great campgrounds. We try to hug the shore using the GPS to find the lakeside roads as much as possible.

I'll add my favorite - Grand Haven State Park. Campground is more like a parking lot but location is wonderful. We just got back from long Labor Day camp and enjoyed it. Beautiful beach, great pier to walk out on and easy walk/bike ride along river into quaint little town.

Leelanau SP is also nice just north of Traverse City. Drive M22. And don't skip Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Now I want to go again!

Happy Camping!
