The is the Walton resort in Hartland above Howell. There are others close to there. Oak Grove I think. It's been a couple of years.

Michigan is close to Goshen...so you might want to try to work the Frog Rally into your plans.

The absolute closest that I know about is on my side of the border, Windsor Campground. But as others have said Algonac might be the better option for you. Farther away but offset by the unpredictability of possible delays at the border.

You'll have to let me know when you're planning to be in town and I'll see about arranging a weekend where ever you're staying at.

We stay at Proud Lake SP when ever a shopping trip to Detroit is called for. It is a nice park and a little closer than Algonac, but if you are any kind of Boat Nerd at all, Algonac SP is the best spot to watch the big lake freighters, Try to get a site that backs up to the river.

I've been wanting to try out Harbortown. It looks like a nice park.

Last time I was at Sterling was about 30+ years ago and I wasn't impressed back then, but I've been tempted to go back because it's one of the few State Parks that offers full hookups.

I recently have totally given up on Michigan State Parks. The reservation system is a joke and it's impossible to get into the 'popular parks', plus our rig as really too big for many of them anyway.

We spend most of our time on the west coast of the lower peninsula, from Holland to Traverse City. The west side is very beautiful.

We have plans at several private RV resorts this summer including:

Ponchos Pond in Ludington A+
Silver Creek in silver lake (we run our trucks in the dunes too)
River Ridge in Stanwood
Hidden Ridge in Hopkins (only 20 minutes away from home, but nice)
Traverse Bay in Traverse City A++

Yes, the RV resorts are more expensive, but very clean and FULL hookups.
Let me know if you need more info on these options.
