Best in Tent Camping Michigan

Best in Tent Camping Michigan
Matt Forester

This guidebook is part of a series by Menasha Ridge Press for car campers who want a more nature-centered experience and who aren't looking for a slab to level their RV.  I've used several books in the series and have found some great campsites, so I was happy to see the Michigan book released.  The book divides Michigan into five regions: Southeast, Southwest, Northwest, Northeast, and the Upper Peninsula.  As might be expected, the book recommends many campgrounds in northern Michigan and the UP but there are some close to Kalamazoo.  Each chapter includes a description of the campground, a map of the sites, and recommendations for the best individual sites.

The book has a Facebook page and is available from Amazon and other booksellers

Thank you for this information! Now that we know where to go, all we need is a tnet big enough for the entire family :) I can actually recommend an article that offers reviews of some of the best family tents on the market, and you can also take a look, here:
