The Great Outdoors

Michigan certainly puts a large emphasis on spending quality time outdoors, evident by the many parks and recreation areas found scattered throughout the state. When you book an RV in Oakland County, you can drive your campervan rental to any of a dozen or more parks without straying too far from the town of Milford, where Camp Dearborn Campground is situated. Island Lake State Recreation Area is on the Huron River. It is one of the most popular parks in Michigan, hosting over a million visitors each year. There are different areas where guests may canoe, bike, or hike, and a network of bicycle trails extending north around Kent Lake.Kensington Metropark impresses with a variety of noteworthy features, like the massive, humanmade lake beside it that is great for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, and boating. Hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails wind and weave through the park, while a golf course, disc golf course, picnic area, splash pad, water slides, a boat rental area, a nature center, and a farm learning center can also be enjoyed while you're here.Maybury State Park is another interesting place to see when you rent an RV near Camp Dearborn Campground. What was once a quarantined area for tuberculosis patients has now transformed into one of the better parks around, complete with old buildings and historical sites that once served as medical facilities and houses for doctors. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, picnicking, nature photography, and fishing in the pond are just some of the activities enjoyed by visitors. Dodge #4 State Park over by Pontiac also has wide-open tracts of land set aside for public recreation.

City Sightseeing

There are lots of nearby cities to visit when you rent an RV near Milford. Detroit is the most prominent city in the state, always good for a memorable time, but Ann Arbor is a lovely alternative a bit closer to the RV park. The town is home to the University of Michigan, and there are lots of cultural attractions to keep tourists intrigued. The University of Michigan Museum of Art is home to an incredible collection that ranks among the best in the country. There are over a dozen permanent galleries, and even more temporary displays to keep things fresh from time to time. Modern paintings by artists like Picasso adorn the walls of this storied institution, and the Asian art collection is one of its most significant specialties.Another museum located on the university campus is the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History. Learn about the universe in the on-site planetarium, or witness massive mastodon skeletons and other fossils belonging to long-extinct animals that once walked the planet.Sports lovers can have a blast visiting the Michigan Stadium, home to the university's NCAA football team. Game days are absolutely electric in autumn, drawing over 100,000 fans to watch the event and enjoy some pre-game tailgating. There is nothing quite like seeing the stadium buzzing, but don’t forget to check out the other university museums, theaters, and other local treasures while you're here.

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.
