I would suggest two camp grounds in the lower portion of Michigan; they are Poncho's Pond RV park in Ludington MI and Sunny Brook RV resort in South Haven MI. Both are 9 or 10 rated RV park in my opinion with cement pads and full hook-ups and 50 AMP service; with lots to do in the area.

Another suggestion that you may like and a bit different is to take US 10 which enters the state at ST Paul, Minnesota. This than travels through Wisconsin ending in Manitowoc WI. You will than take the SS BADGER across Lake MI and departing on US 10 in Ludington MI. The SS. Badger is a coal fired car/truck ferry that will take you across the lake.

I have attached a link for you.

Wilderness State Park in the top of the lower pennisula just added some full hookup sites. Haven't seen those sites yet but the campground is great.

It's called Lindenwood C/g...yes lots of mature trees in the park but not really in the campsites. Sites are very open, and very some you wouldn't be able to have your awning out cause it would be almost hitting the neighbor, and it has no full hook ups, water and electrical only, but it has a dump station. We have stayed there lots and have kinda given up on it...reference to Roger Maris is that the road int the park leading to c/g is called Roger Maris Drive...a few ball parks next to the c/g and almost always some groups playing ball there.

IGGY, be sure to get to Whitefish Point and visit the Great Lakes ship wreck museum. It is a great stop and has a big memorial to the Edmond Fritzgerald freighter. Very moving. It is a great museum.

More UP Campgrounds

Just about as soon as you enter the UP from Wisconsin you should visit Lake Gogebic State Park which is a modern campground on the shores of Lake Gogebic and a close drive to Porcupine Mountains and Lake of the Clouds. They have full hookups, modern showers and pump out facilities there.

Michigan Recreation Search Site Details Page

If you are interested in history don't miss Fayette Historic Park 13 miles south of US2 on M183 (turn south on 183 at the Garden Corners blinker). This park is a "semi modern" campground on the shores of Lake Michigan with 50amp hookups. There are no showers here but if you are interested in history the historic park is an 1860's iron ore smelter and the town is largely restored by various universities nestled around a limestone walled deep harbor known as Snail Harbor. You can spend a day walking the restored buildings and learn of a time when iron ore was smelted and shipped as iron ingots rather than taconite pellets which contain iron ore but has to be smelted before you get iron ore or can make steel. The idea was you shipped already refined product without the slag waste of taconite.

Michigan Recreation Search Site Details Page

The Michigan DNR website that hosts both of these campgrounds also contains a list of all Michigan State Parks with details of what each park offers in the way of amenities and things to do.

Hidden Ridge RV Resort at exit 59 on Route 131 near Shelbyville, Mi. Great upscale family resort with paved roads and lots. All with concrete patios and full hookup 50 amp sites. Less than 2 hours from the F.R.O.G. International Rally. Others from here going to the Rally. Great place to spend some time before the Rally. The resort is mid way between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo so lots to see and do.

I don't know how far north you are going in Wisconsin but copper falls state park is a nice place to go. But there are tons of county and state parks with camping in the north woods area of Wisconsin. We go to apple river and go tubing every couple years. Also try wolf river area. These are just places to have some fun but areas around have plenty of spots to camp. The Wisconsin DNR web site has all the state parks and what they have as far as hook ups go and if they allow animals and all that good stuff. Here is the link.
Wisconsin Department of Natural ...

If you come more south east door county is always a good spot. You can always make a stop in Green Bay and do the lambeau feild tour. So it really depends on where your plan takes you. The Wisconsin dells is always worth checking out to.

Good luck and safe travels!
