Bodi Lake Campground

Bodi Lake Campground lies in the far north of Michigan’s largely untouched Upper Peninsula, an area ripe for exploration by those wanting to get off the beaten path and off the grid. There are no urban areas near Bodi Lake, which is precisely why most people choose to book an RV in Luce County. The closest town with any services is Newberry, about 45 minutes' drive from the campground. The largest city on the Peninsula, Marquette, is still quite small and is over two hours' drive away.The campground has over a dozen sites, all of them absent of hookups for your campervan rental. Each site does have a picnic table and fire ring, though. Potable water is available from a hand pump, along with simple vault toilets, but otherwise, the campground is completely natural. If you need to empty the holding tanks on your rental RV, you’ll need to go down to Newberry to find a dump station.Hiking trails encircle the lake to provide a few miles of exercise and outdoor enjoyment. This is also one of the more pet-friendly campgrounds near Newberry, so feel free to bring your four-legged pal along for the walk. Bodi Lake is also popular with anglers; it’s stocked with perch and has an ample supply of northern pike and walleye.

The Great Outdoors

The primary reason for visiting the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is to enjoy nature in all its unspoiled glory. With little development and even fewer people, much of it looks the way it did hundreds of years ago.Tahquamenon Falls is one of the most popular natural attractions in the area. Consisting of a 50-foot-tall by 200-foot-wide waterfall, it’s America’s third-largest waterfall by volume east of the Mississippi River. A half-mile-long pathway leads to the upper falls, while a four-mile-long hiking trail reaches the lower section. You can also rent a rowboat for a nominal fee to paddle around the falls area.Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is another great spot less than two hours' drive from Bodi Lake Campground and one of the most scenic locations in the Upper Peninsula. The lakeshore’s magnificent sandstone cliffs are best explored via a sea kayak as their true beauty can only be observed from a distance. Fortunately, there are plenty of rental shops in nearby Munising. As long as you stick relatively close to shore, even a novice paddler should have no trouble.Staying closer to the campground, one of the downsides to RV camping in such a rural area is that gear rental shops are hard to come by. If you want to rent a kayak to use on Bodi Lake or Lake Superior, your best bet is to look into some of the resorts and hotels that may have extra stock to lend out. Outfitters are more common along the Lake Superior shore closer to Marquette, but these are going to be over an hour's drive from the campsites at Bodi Lake Campground.

Exploring the City

Everyone needs some creature comforts during their motorhome camping trip, and when you’re camping at Bodi Lake Campground, your best bet for urban amenities will be the county seat of Newberry. Restaurants are limited to pizza shops along with bar and grill joints, but if you’re not much of a chef, it’s a significant improvement over what you’d have back at the RV campground. You won’t find any shopping malls there, but the Indian Springs Plaza on the north side of town has a few shops where you can browse for a unique souvenir. Most importantly, though, you can gas up the RV rental at a couple of different gas stations on the south end of Newberry Ave.There are a few attractions to enjoy when you camp in an RV near Newberry, like the Tahquamenon Logging Museum north of town. Several log cabin-style buildings dot the museum grounds housing artifacts related to logging in the 19th and early 20th century. Particularly interesting are all the exhibits related to the Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps, which worked to build infrastructure in the Upper Peninsula and across the Upper Midwest.If spotting dangerous wildlife on the trail is more of an experience than you are up for, check out the bear ranch just outside of Newberry. The educational facility takes in bear cubs that have been separated from their mothers and have little chance of survival on their own. Visitors to the ranch can walk along trails and view the bears from a distance or feed apples to some of the friendlier ones.

It doesn't get more convenient than having your own bathroom on the road. Let's talk about the 3 main types of toilets you may encounter in an RV rental.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
