Perhaps the view of the sun coming up over Lake Huron and the closeness to its sandy beaches are what you came to Lexington for. If so, the Lexington Park Campground on the shores of Lake Huron can’t be more perfectly situated. Leafy and cool with mature pine trees, the campground evokes a serene setting for Lexington campers with all the kids in tow. The playground and the horseshoe pits are an invitation for kids to have all kinds of fun while the volleyball, basketball, and tennis courts engage the adults.
The amenities, too, ensure comfort to every camper, whatever their need. If you only need electric service (30amp), you’ll find it here. Or connect to water/electric or even full hookup service (both 30 amp) if that’s what you prefer, and let the breeze blow away your cares. If you want to have more shade, dozens of motorhome camping sites sit under lush canopies. Restrooms and showers are available, as well as picnic areas and pavilions for outdoor meals and large gatherings.
Waterfront camping near Lexington puts you close to the start of the 100-mile Tip of the Thumb Heritage Water Trail on Lake Huron. From Lexington, you canoe south to north until you round Michigan’s "tip of the thumb" at Port Austin and then continue down the other side of the thumb to the southern shore of Saginaw Bay.
Rugged stretches of the coast from Lexington to White Rock Park dominate the view, while mostly sandy shores welcome you when you arrive at Port Austin. Kayak a section of the trail and go back to your campsite at Lexington Park Campground, or complete the entire length of the trail for an opportunity to land on isolated beaches, and make the most of the campsites and rest areas spaced out along the shore.
For shipwreck divers, the best reason to book an RV rental in Sanilac County is located just offshore. Michigan's eastern shoreline from Lexington up to Forestville proved perilous to many ships navigating Lake Huron's waters. Safe harbors were hard to find, and storms regularly occurred along this stretch of Lake Huron, resulting in several maritime catastrophes over the years.
The shipwrecks that littered the coast make up the Sanilac Shores Underwater Preserve, with 16 of them visible above 120 feet. Some of the more notable wrecks with their hulls and their navigational equipment relatively intact are the 1856 wooden steamer New York, the 1873 tugboat Sport, and the 1864 cargo carrier Colonel A.B. Williams.
On land, Sanilac County boasts another collection of artifacts from as back as the Late Woodland Era. Native American Indians who occupied the area now known as the Michigan Thumb etched into sandstone slabs a collection of birds and other animal figures, leaving behind a cache of petroglyphs that Michigan is rightly proud of. The petroglyphs are surrounded by the lush and peaceful woodlands of the Sanilac Petroglyphs Historic State Park in Cass City. They can be seen along a mile-long self-guided trail that also takes you to clues of a Chippewa village and remnants of a 19th-century logging camp.
While physically compact and highly walkable, Lexington packs a nice selection of stores, eateries, and entertainment venues between the harbor and Highway 25, where a few of the town's gas stations and convenience/grocery stores are located. If you like to mix your well-earned beverage with live music, the local brewing company is where the action takes place. For live music with a harbor view, pack up a lawn chair and enjoy "Music in the Park" on summer Friday evenings near Lexington Harbor.
Lexington is a music-loving village. To really get into the spirit, rent a camper near Lexington Park Campground in late August and soak up all the traditional acoustic music you can. Visit in September for the Bach Festival in Lexington and Port Huron, and you’ll have your fair share of Baroque and other classical works. Other events around town that are worth marking your calendar for are the Fine Arts Street Fair, the Civil War Weekend, and the Antique & Classic Boat Show.
The architecture-minded might want to take their Lexington camper rental to Port Sanilac and stroll around the lush gardens at the Sanilac County Historic Village & Museum for its collection of Victorian, Edwardian, and vintage buildings. There's also the 1886 lighthouse that initially burned kerosene and was electrified in 1929, but continues to function to this day as an active aid in navigation. And if your idea of a getaway is attending festivals, you’re in luck. Port Sanilac's many events and festivities rival that of Lexington’s, allowing you to plan around many exciting events like the Port Sanilac Native, Voyageurs & Settlers Days, the Blues Festival, and the Catamaran Racing at the Harbor.
