Harrisville Campground

Visiting the Great Lakes is always a good idea, especially if you decide on camping at Harrisville Campground. On the shores of Lake Huron, it is just the place where you can unwind and refill your energy. Travelers coming to this pet-friendly campground will find themselves in one of the oldest state parks in Michigan – Harrisville State Park. Park your rental RV at one of the beachfront sites and watch both the sunrise and the sunset reflecting on the surface of the lake. Some of the RV sites have electric hookups with 50 amp service, and there are also restrooms and a dump station.The surrounding area seems like it was made for outdoor lovers – they can go from splashing around in the lake to meandering through the forest in no time. If you hit the road in your Harrisville camper, you will reach the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior after a short ride and immerse yourself in their beauty. Those in the mood for some sightseeing can follow the road south and get to some of the largest and most interesting cities in the state. Saginaw is waiting on the banks of the river with the same name, home to the Castle Museum and the Saginaw Children’s Zoo. Crossroad Village & Huckleberry Railroad and the Flint Institute of Arts are some of the attractions of Flint, the next city you should stop by. If you don’t mind spending a couple more hours on the road, you will arrive in Detroit, aka the Motor City, attracting sightseers with the Henry Ford Museum and the Detroit Institute of Arts.

The Great Outdoors

Parking a rental motorhome at Harrisville Campground is your ticket to the beauties of the surrounding park with the same name – Harrisville State Park. Campers will be able to get from their RVs to the pleasant waters of Lake Huron in no time and go for a refreshing swim or a relaxing walk along the beach, some parts of which are pet-friendly. If you are in for a hike, follow the Cedar Run Nature Trail through the forested parts of the park. Bird watchers are in for a treat – plenty of bird species such as warblers and woodpeckers can be seen around the park. Those who come for fishing and boating will find a boat launch in nearby Harrisville. Other exciting ways to explore the park include biking and, if you come in winter, cross-country skiing.When you opt for one of the RV rentals in Alcona County, make sure to enter the endless wilderness of Huron-Manistee National Forests. Huron National Forest is about half an hour's drive away from the campground, home to the scenic Au Sable River, a designated Wild and Scenic River. You can reach Manistee National Forest in a few hours if you hit the road in your camper rental and discover the best spots on the shore of Lake Michigan or explore the unique Nordhouse Dune Wilderness. The forests spread across almost a million acres and adventurers can find countless lakes and rivers perfect for fishing and canoeing. Hundreds of miles of hiking trails are there for the explorers coming to visit and if you want to really delve deep into the wilderness, go backpacking and experience the forest solitude.Once you rent an RV near Harrisville Campground, there is no part of Michigan that is too far, and that includes the magical Upper Peninsula. It will surprise you with wonderful nature at every step, and one of its must-visit places is definitely Tahquamenon Falls State Park. One of the largest state parks in the state, it has at its heart the magnificent Tahquamenon River, surprising visitors with its brownish color and its powerful waterfalls, some of which you can get close to by canoeing. Most of the park is undeveloped, offering a great opportunity to disappear into the wilderness and disconnect from civilization. If you come just to unwind, find a nice picnic area and rest your eyes on the abundant vegetation of this oasis.

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.
