Looking for great camping in MI

We are from Wi and have lived in MI for about 11 years. For the past 7 we have parked our pop up at a lake house until a tree fell on it. We just bought a new Roo and are looking for nice camping spots in MI. We like full hookup, with lots of trees, and fun activities.

First, I've got to indulge my curiosity. Did the tree fall on the popup or the house?

Secondly, I'm a big fan of the state parks, the DW and kids are fans of the KOAs, so we stay at KOAs. Not much for treed lots there most of the time but the one in Emmett MI wasn't bad.

For trees, I'd stick with the state parks. MI does have 4 SPs that are listed as full hookups on according to the DNR. I'm not sure where you'd be headed but you've got options. I haven't tried any of them yet but they are on my (though not the rest of family's) wish list to try out.

We have only camped twice in Michigan and had good times both trips. Harbour Town in Monroe has lots to do with go carts, batting cages, put put and a huge pool. Lots were paved and good size but lack trees. Valley Plaza in Midland is a small campground beside a Best Western with indoor pools and hot tubs. On site is a bowling, alley, arcade, bumper cars and movie theater. Close by is a minor league ball park, Frankenmuth and Birch Run.

Our favorite Michigan campgrounds are KOA at Petoskey and the full hookup state campground at Hartwick Pines just off 75. Petoskey KOA is fantastic with lots of activities, great pool and hot tub, and is close to Stafford's Bayview Inn, famous for it's Sunday Brunch. Everyhink is fairly close (Mackinaw Bridge and Island, Mackinac City, Canada , Harbor Springs. Hartwick Pines is close to great North Branch Trout Fishing and comfortably close to other AuSable main stream and South Branch. Take your waders and fly rod! Michigan has a weekend of free (no license needed) usually in Apr or May. Enjoy

We love the Sand Dunes at Silver Lake. You can rent jeeps and drive on the dunes or take your own four wheel drive vehicle/dune buggy/4 wheeler on them.

Best campground is pristine and right down the street from the dunes:
Silver Creek RV Resort

What type of camping are you looking to do? I love the state parks here, we aren't "rv resort" kind of people though. Fayette is beautiful in the UP. Hoeft is another gem, they are about to completely redo the park since the sites don't accommodate huge rv's, but the beach is beautiful. Platt River is another, they have a great tubing area where you end up in Lake Michigan. Also, Ludington is another absolutely gorgeous campground. We also really like Wilderness, it's just a few min from the bridge. I preferred the loop in the back, we had wild turkeys roaming around every day.

Given a choice, I'd prefer the later.
