Perfect Camping for You in Michigan

The Great Lakes State provides a spectacular backdrop for some of the most scenic campgrounds in the country. But do you know which campgrounds offer the most privacy? Which are the best for first-time campers? Matt Forster traversed the entire state--from the grassy dunes overlooking Lake Michigan to a quiet lake that serves as a portal to the Sylvania Wilderness--and compiled the most up-to-date research to steer you to the perfect spot

Best Tent Camping: Michigan presents 50 national park, state park, national forest, and state forest campgrounds, organized into five distinct regions. Selections are based on location, topography, size, and overall appeal, and every site is rated for beauty, privacy, spaciousness, safety and security, and cleanliness--so you'll always know what to expect. The new full-color edition of this proven guidebook provides everything you need to know, with detailed maps of each campground and key information such as fees, restrictions, dates of operation, and facilities, as well as driving directions and GPS coordinates.

Whether you seek a quiet campground near a fish-filled stream or a family campground with all the amenities, grab Best Tent Camping: Michigan. It's an escape for all who wish to find those special locales that recharge the mind, body, and spirit. This guide is a keeper.

About the Author

As a native of Michigan, Matt Forster has camped all over the Great Lake State. He's carried his gear in backpacks, Duluth packs, saddlebags, and car trunks and slept in tents, pop-ups, camper vans, and RVs. He and his wife live in Michigan with their two young children, who are both just experiencing camping for the first time. These days, camping trips often come down to tossing the tent in the back of the car, loading up way too much equipment, and praying for good weather (a necessity with two kids in tow). As a freelance writer, Matt is the author of Backroads & Byways of Michigan (The Countryman Press), Backroads & Byways of Ohio (The Countryman Press), Colorado: An Explorer's Guide (The Countryman Press), Best Hikes Near Detroit and Ann Arbor (FalconGuides), and a travel app for Michigan's Grand Traverse region called Up North! Grand Traverse (available on iOS and Android devices).
