Pure Michigan Camping – An All American Holiday Get-Away
Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds Invites Families to Rediscover Michigan Camping During Upcoming Fourth of July
(CHEBOYGAN, Mich) – Camping is a tradition as rich in American pride as baseball, hot dogs and apple pie. Ranked the #1 outdoor activity in the United States, camping is the perfect way to reconnect with the family and explore the natural surroundings in the Great Lakes State.
Given that Independence Day falls on a Wednesday in 2012, families have two weekends in which to celebrate and there are plenty of camp sites – for tenters, RVers and cabin-dwellers – available at private campgrounds throughout both the Upper and Lower Peninsulas between June 29 and July 9. Below, are those private campgrounds that have reported availability:
Type and date(s) of site availability vary by property. This is not an all-inclusive list. This list includes campgrounds that responded back to a survey indicating availability, as of June 29, 2012. Availability subject to change. Reservations are required.
ARVC represents some 180 member campgrounds with nearly 30,000 sites available throughout the state. Whether pitching a tent, parking an RV or reserving a rustic or modern cabin, Michigan campgrounds offer a great way to disconnect from busy lives and reconnect with families. Campers in Michigan enjoy the great outdoors while fishing or canoeing on the countless lakes, rivers and streams or hiking, biking and riding on the miles of trails that wind throughout the state. There’s definitely no shortage of activities, no matter where the campground is located.
The 2012 Michigan Campground Directory, published by ARVC – Michigan, is now available at various locations statewide, including all Welcome Centers. A PDF version is also available for viewing online at www.MichCampgrounds.com. The directory not only lists campgrounds by region, but also includes helpful information on the type of sites available, various amenities such as restroom, laundry and dumping station facilities; recreational offerings such as pools and golf courses; and seasons of operation. Campgrounds that now offer wireless internet access onsite are also identified.
ARVC Michigan’s mission is to lead in the development of the RV Parks and Campground industry through education, communication and representation. ARVC Michigan is a member of the National Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds (www.gocampingamerica.com).
