The Great Outdoors

The number of incredible state parks near Alcona Park Campground is staggering, so you’ll have plenty of places to consider when renting an RV here. Consider taking the Glennie camper rental to Tawas Point State Park to the south. This amazing park straddles the line between Tawas Bay and the waters of Lake Huron, giving visitors spectacular views of the sunset and sunrise depending on the location. You can camp, hike, swim, go fishing or boating, or climb to the top of the on-site lighthouse.Harrisville State Park and Sturgeon Point State Park are two more fantastic state parks run by the state of Michigan along the shores of Lake Huron. Harrisville State Park is heavily wooded, making it an excellent place for birdwatchers to identify and photograph hundreds of different migratory bird species. Hundreds of campsites and miles of nature trails can be found on-site, along with beaches, volleyball courts, picnic areas, playgrounds, and hunting areas. Sturgeon Point State Park is much smaller but features a historic lighthouse and museum on-site that guests may tour.Huron National Forest is another excellent wilderness area in the region. Head here for a day trip, and long-distance trekking, biking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and more can be enjoyed depending on the season. Isle Royale National Park is found up north by the Canadian border and proves to be one of Michigan’s most epic places, found on a remote island in Lake Superior. You’ll have to leave your campervan rental behind for this one, but you can take a boat and camp on the island if you want to spend the night in one of the country’s least visited and most remote national parks.

City Attractions

Glennie is a small community surrounded by forests; city sightseeing will require a bit of driving if you want to see some attractions while camping at Alcona Park Campground. In East Tawas, within Tawas Point State Park, the Tawas Point Lighthouse is one of several lights to check out when you rent an RV near Glennie. Sturgeon Point Lighthouse is another historic treasure worth seeing, located in Sturgeon Point State Park.The Iosco County Historical Museum is also found in East Tawas, home to an abundance of information related to the founding and history of Iosco County. You can take a self-guided tour of this mesmerizing house-museum built well over a century ago. This Victorian masterpiece has bright colors, restored elegance, and a whole host of artifacts and antique furniture scattered in its halls and rooms. You can learn about the local indigenous people, the area’s first pioneers, the lumber and shipping industries, and much more.When you book an RV in Alcona County, you can even take a ride to Bay City, a 90-minute drive away. It might not have the number of attractions that Detroit has, but Bay City will surprise you with some neat stops like the Historical Museum of Bay County. Much like the Iosco County Historical Museum, this depository of fascinating information teaches visitors about the industries that helped put Bay City on the map, and the frequent skirmishes between Native Americans and the pioneers who moved to Michigan.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
