I live about five minutes away from Harbortown. Although I've never stayed there, it does look nice. It would be a great location for going both north and south.

We've stayed at Harbortown a couple of times, make sure you ask for the full hookups if that's what you want. The west half of the CG is power/water only. Whole park is concrete/blacktop pads, most are near dead on level. Nice pool & stocked store, huge laundry & bath house with individual bathrooms. Adjacent go-cart & arcade area, ice cream etc @ the pool side snack shop.

Evergreen is almost our home CG, usually spend several multi-days there. 10's across the board. Sites are extremely well maintained, covered indoor pool. Right in the middle of Ohio's Amish country. Large bath house in the pool building also, all sites except tent area are full hookup. They honor GS discounts as well. Great place, you will love both....have graduations in MI the week of the FROG rally or we'd be there too. . .

Watch your dates in June as MIS has races over father day weekend and Harbor town gets filled up fast.

I'll just add my thanks for all the good information. We're planning to visit the Ford Museum on the way to the Goshen fest this summer if all goes well & I'm glad to know of Greenfield Village & the other attractions & RV parks.
Also planning to visit Ann Arbor...should I find another RV park there or will Harbortown serve for both?

Edit...Duh..typed Dearborne when I meant Ann Arbor . Sorry.

While in Dearborn, after the Village or The Ford as the museum is now called, go to Buddy's Pizza on Michigan Ave., not far at all from the museum. Excellent pizza pie! Also, there are many Middle Eastern places near Buddy's. Try a Shwarma sandwich. Sort of an Arabic version of a Greek Gyro. Also many other great eats if you are adventurous in that area. Google for exact directions. I worked at Greenfield Village and The Henry Ford Museum in the mid 70's for several years. If you like early Americana and industry, you can spend days wandering around in there! If you look across from the village, you can see the Ford Test Track and some of the engineering buildings. There was an airport that Ford built and flew his Tri-Motor airplanes in and out of in the middle of that. I have since moved out to Arizona, but still have some family in the area. Also, if your time allows, go take the Ford Tour! You will be amazed watching the birth of a truck! It used to be called "A Car is Born!" Ford tours used to include a complete tour of the Rouge Plant. Everything came in as raw materials, and left as a Mustang or Fseries truck! From sand to glass, iron ore to a car body- everything! I do not know what is included on the newer tours, so.....

We've stayed at Detroit Greenfield RV Park which would be somewhat closer to the Ford Museum/ Greenfield Village. It used to be a KOA, but then the owners went independent.

Also depending how many nights your planning in the area, Cabela's at the "Dundee" exit on Rt 23 offers overnight camping(Parking) in their RV lot. They even have dump & Water. (The nearby Russell Stover's candy outlet may also be a +)

I have been to the Ford twice. We needed 3 days to do the Ford and Greenfield Village. Plus Factory tours and Fairlane, Family home.

Detroit Greenfield RV Park would be closer to both Dearborn and Ann Arbor. I haven't stayed there however I have heard it is nice. Safe travels!

Great Info.. Yes we'll be looking for a full hookup site with 50 amp service. We bought a Georgetown 328TSF Class A in August. As much as we loved out Sunseeker Class C, the Class A is such a joy! Hopefully in about 7 years or so we'll be retired and do more things like this.

Frog Event page doesn't have any details yet on their event. If something doesn't show up soon we may end up skipping it and spending a few extra days at Harbortown before we head over to Put-In-Bay.

Thanks so much for the info...
