Discover Bay City Campground

Saginaw Bay is a stunning place in northern Michigan, and when you rent an RV near Bay City Campground, you’ll be in a prime position to camp out on the shores of lovely Lake Huron. While there are no waterfront campsites, a short walk is all you’ll need to get to the lavish beaches that line the lake just minutes away. Bay City is the nearest urban area to the state-run campground, but the metropolis of Detroit is only a few hours’ drive south.

The densely wooded campsites at Bay City Campground afford park guests privacy, comfort, and quiet, with spacious lots and a symphony of birds and insects to lull you to sleep or greet you with the rising sun. If that wasn’t already enticing enough, gentle breezes rolling off Lake Huron provide relief from the surprisingly hot summer temperatures. Electric and water hookups are available to those that need them, and tent camping is possible, too, for those without campervan rentals.

Restrooms and modern showers are provided by the campground, so you’ll never need more than a few minutes of walking to get anywhere in the park. Aside from the incredible beaches where guests can sunbathe, swim, boat, and fish, there are plenty of fun activities for visitors staying at this rustic RV campground. The playground and splash pad do a fantastic job of keeping youngsters busy, as do the hiking trails and visitors' center on-site. The nature center, housed within the visitors' center is a wonderful place to learn about the local wildlife and the natural history that shaped Michigan's dreamy landscapes and the Great Lakes.

The Great Outdoors

Much of Michigan’s lakeshore is lined with state parks, making recreation spots incredibly easy to find for those renting an RV near Bay City Campground. Bay City Campground itself is part of Bay City State Park, a beloved getaway for city folk who want to relax and swim during summer vacation. Besides camping and hiking, guests can enjoy biking, fishing, swimming, hunting, birdwatching, and kayaking while visiting or camping at Bay City State Park.

Sleeper State Park and Port Crescent State Park can be found over on the “thumb” of Michigan’s lower peninsula. When you bring your campervan rental to Sleeper State Park, you can camp out on the lake shores of Lake Huron, hike, bike, fish, or cross-country ski during Michigan's snowy winters. Port Crescent State Park is equally impressive, known particularly for its Dark Sky Preserve Status. Mesmerizing night skies at the park draw crowds from all over Michigan to see constellations, meteor showers, planets, and other astronomical phenomena in the cosmos. Camping, hiking, swimming, and fishing are also popular at Port Crescent State Park, much like its sister park, Sleeper State Park.

Huron National Forest is one of the state’s largest natural areas, with over half a million acres of wilderness to trek. Lush forests, raging rivers, tranquil creeks, lofty mountains, and hidden campsites are scattered throughout this treasured forest, but why stop there? Isle Royale National Park way up by the Canadian border gives you a chance to see the state’s lone national park. This remote island is tricky to reach but well worth the effort when you feel like seeing a slice of natural paradise than only a small portion of people visit every year.

Exploring the Area

Bay City Campground is named for nearby Bay City, a pleasant and charming locale with lots of neat attractions and sights to see. The Central Avenue Historic District is teeming with historic buildings and Victorian homes, making it an absolute delight to see while strolling through the area. Around 250 historic structures, churches, and Victorian mansions can be seen in this district. The Riverwalk Pier is another incredible place to take a walk at sunset or sunrise, with prime views of the water.

The Historical Museum of Bay County is a must-see for history buffs camping in an RV rental in Bay City. Each floor has different exhibits, from the lumber and maritime industries that put Bay City on the map to the rich Native American heritage of the region.

The Saginaw Valley Naval Ship Museum lets visitors tour the “Grey Ghost of the Vietnam Coast,” a naval destroyer now out of service. This magnificent vessel, the USS Edson DD-946, served admirably in several conflicts throughout American history. Climb through tight spaces, tour most areas of the ship, and meet volunteers who once served aboard the ship. This is just one of many fascinating historic attractions you can experience when you rent an RV near Bay City Campground.
