Discover Interlochen State Park, MI

Discover more than 180 acres of crystalline lakes, sandy beaches, and virgin white pine forests at Interlochen State Park. As the first officially recognized state park in Michigan, Interlochen holds a special place in the hearts of locals. Venture further afield and you can discover towering sand dunes, boutique wineries, and bountiful orchards of northwest Michigan. The region is also famous as America’s Summer Golf Capital, which makes it a great place to book a tee time.

With so much to see and do in the area, renting an RV in Grand Traverse County is the best way to explore this corner of the Great Lake State. Start your adventure in Traverse City, or use cities like Grand Rapids or Lansing as a jumping point for RV camping at Interlochen State Park. You're also less than four hours from Motor City, which makes Interlochen State Park popular with urbanites and road trippers wanting to camp in an RV near Detroit.

Getting Outdoors

Sandwiched between two lakes, Interlochen State Park is one of the best places in the state to swim, sunbathe, or enjoy a scenic paddle. The day-use area at Duck Lake is always popular and lures sunseekers with golden sand and shallow water. Spend the day basking on the beach or rent a canoe and explore the scenic waterways of the Platte and Betsie Rivers.

Stretch your legs and admire some of the park's most beautiful virgin trees on the Pines Nature Trail. It winds for more than half a mile through the forest and is dotted with interpretive signs. In the summer, kids will love attending interactive nature programs. They can also burn off energy at the volleyball nets, basketball court, and baseball diamond.

Both Duck and Green Lakes are well-stocked with bass, pike, and bluegill during the summer. In the colder months, you can reel in smelt and pike. Don't forget to pick up a valid Michigan fishing license before you cast a line. The shoreline is also dotted with sheltered picnic tables that are perfect for enjoying lunch or afternoon tea. Bring your own supplies or head to the beachside concession.

Camping at Interlochen State Park

Set on the banks of Duck Lake, the developed campground at Interlochen State Park offers almost 400 sites. Most are shaded by mature pines and offer plenty of space and privacy. Electric hookups are available for RV rentals, with the option of 20, 30 or 50 amp. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at your picnic table and spend the night roasting hot dogs and s'mores around your fire pit. Modern restrooms make RV camping at Interlochen State Park a breeze, with flush toilets and hot showers. There's also a sanitation dump station for RVs with services onboard. Most sites can host rigs of up to 40 feet length.

For an off-the-grid experience, head to the Green Lake Campground. Claim one of the primitive style sites and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere. Unpaved driveways and smaller sites make Green Lake suitable for rental RVs of up to 30 feet in length. Traveling with extra guests? Interlochen also offers camper cabins, rent-a-tents, and a group area. Pets are welcome, though you'll need to keep your dog on a six-foot leash. There's a maximum stay of 15 consecutive nights, so why not plan an extended state park RV camping getaway at Interlochen?

Exploring the Area

RV camping at Interlochen State Park puts you in the heart of Michigan's captivating Northwest Region. Don't miss the area's signature attraction: Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Hailed as one of the most beautiful places in North America, the park will enchant you with towering sand dunes, crystalline water, hidden islands, and lush sugar maple forests. Spend the day exploring the park and enjoy lunch in one of the charismatic towns that dot the lakeshore.

On the Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas, you'll find dozens of wineries taking advantage of the region's rich soil and plentiful sunshine. Sip your way through boutique tasting rooms and be sure to stop at farm stands selling apples, cherries, and other local produce. Studded with shimmering lakes, Interlochen Golf Course has been welcoming guests since 1965. The course features 18 challenging holes and an on-site pub serving smoked barbecue and ice-cold beer. For a culture fix, spend an evening at the Interlochen Center for the Arts, which hosts performances by acclaimed musicians and up-and-coming talent.

Need to stock up on supplies? The concession store at the campground is a great place to pick up motorhome camping basics like milk, bread, snacks, and firewood. Traverse City is a 25-minute drive northeast and offers plenty of gas stations and grocery stores. There's also a burgeoning food scene, which means you'll find artisan bakeries, gourmet gastropubs, and colorful food trucks on every corner.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

See color changes and visit family. The high point was having my Aunt get to see her newest Great Great Niece and getting a 4 Generation picture with my Dad, my self, my son, and his new baby. Extremely glad we made the effort for the picture because sadly on the 15th of November my Dad passed away. Lots of memories made on that trip.
