In southwestern Michigan, about 50 miles south of Grand Rapids, the college town of Kalamazoo has as many exploratory options as its name receives giggles. Originally home to several native tribes, the area of Kalamazoo was explored by Europeans as early as the 1680s. Kalamazoo was officially founded in 1829 as a fur trading post and later gained its city status in 1883. More people from the northeast moved to the area and Kalamazoo became a farming community before turning into the industrial, science, and education hub that it is today. Even though it is a bustling city, there is still so much natural beauty around that makes choosing to rent an RV in Kalamazoo a worthwhile experience.

You can also park the RV rental in Kalamazoo and hitch a ride on the Metro Transit. With 19 routes that will take you to all of the major hot spots in town and even to some of the most suburban areas around town, you will have no worries when it comes to getting around Kalamazoo.

Once you book an RV in Kalamazoo, all of southern Michigan and even northern Indiana will open up to you. There’s so much to explore and learn in this less frequented part of the country that you’ll begin to wonder why more people don’t spend time in the Midwest.

Discover Kalamazoo


The Great Outdoors

If you’re looking for a quiet retreat in nature, just about 15 miles to the east of town is the Fort Custer State Recreation Area. Home to three lakes, a stretch of the Kalamazoo River, and 25 miles of hiking trails, Fort Custer is a relaxing and peaceful way to spend the day. The park gets its name from its previous status as a military training ground, but today, it is purely a destination for relaxation.

If you’re willing to drive your Kalamazoo motorhome rental down south into Indiana, then the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is a great place to go. About 90 miles southwest of Kalamazoo and located on the beautiful southern shores of Lake Michigan, Indiana Dunes takes up 15 miles of the lakeshore, making the protected beaches some of the most beautiful in the Great Lakes region. Not only that, but visitors looking for a little more than just fun in the sun on the beach can go hiking through the wetlands and prairies that back up to the lakeshore.

When you want to head back to Michigan, turn your Kalamazoo RV rental by owner north and just keep driving all the way to Huron-Manistee National Forests near Newaygo. With close to one million acres of pristine Michigan wilderness within the park’s span, the land gives its visitors a memorable experience. Farther north, you can take in the sights as you boat along the Au Sable National Scenic River or reconnect with nature as you hike along one of the many trails. You can even try your luck in some of the streams throughout the park and pan for gold, like the early settlers of Michigan would have done.

RV Parks

After you’ve soaked up the sun on the shores of Lake Michigan or gone hiking through the wilds of northern Michigan, you’re going to need to find a place to park the motorhome rental near Kalamazoo.

Just north of town is the Outdoor Adventures Resort – Kalamazoo. You’ll have access to full hookups, bathrooms and showers, and an on-site convenience store. The resort also features a miniature golf course, a lake with fish and a beach, paddle boats, and more.

Cranberry Lake Campground is another option about 30 miles south of town. The campground offers various hookup options, bathrooms and showers, and laundry facilities. You’ll also have access to boat and canoe rentals for paddling around Cranberry Lake and a swimming beach to enjoy.

Explore the City

When you turn your Kalamazoo camper rental back to town, you’ll be able to explore the many technical wonders of this industrial town and balance out your natural explorations with some man-made wonders.

A sheer testament to human innovation, the Air Zoo: Aerospace and Science Museum is a museum located in Kalamazoo that is dedicated to the science of flight, housing historic aircraft, and several hands-on exhibits designed to spark some curiosity in engineering. You can see a replica of the Wright brothers’ plane, bombers from World War II, and even take a ride in a bi-plane in the summer.

If you’d rather stay a little closer to the ground, spend the day at the Gilmore Car Museum instead. Near Hickory Corners, this museum is home to one of the largest classic car collections in Michigan. You’ll see cars from all eras of American and automobile history. They even have various temporary exhibits focused on different elements of automobile history or trends.

When in Michigan, you may as well treat yourself to a slice of Detroit-style pizza. Not as famous as its nearby Chicago cousin, but just as good, Detroit-style pizza is a Sicilian square slice loaded with tomatoes and cheese. And be sure to treat yourself to a slice of cherry pie as some of the country’s best cherries come from Michigan.
