The Great Outdoors

Get ready for some of the best camping that Michigan's Upper Peninsula has to offer when you rent an RV near Sidnaw. The area is in the midst of vast forests teeming with life. Van Riper State Park is an hour's drive east of the campground. It was named for a local doctor who practiced medicine in the area for nearly 70 years. He successfully persuaded the local iron company to gift the land to the town, and today it is a fantastic park on the shores of Lake Michigamme. You can do some hiking, swimming, boating, or fishing at Van Riper State Park, or head up to Craig Lake State Park, which has two lakes of its own. Both state parks are pleasant places to camp, and both can be visited throughout the year, even in the wintertime. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, ice fishing, and other winter recreation await if you decide to take a trip to Michigan during the colder months.Baraga State Park is up by L’Anse. It's a gorgeous place to add to your travel itinerary, no matter the time of year. Swim in the divine waters of Lake Superior or go fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, or sailing. Hiking trails, picnic pavilions, and lovely camping areas are all great reasons to visit too.One of the country’s most undeniably beautiful and remote national parks is also found in Lake Superior, on a large island by the Canadian border. A boat ride from Houghton is the easiest way to get to Isle Royale National Park. This rugged wilderness park doesn't have improved camping facilities, so you'll have to leave the Sidnaw camper rental behind. Trekking, hiking, nature photography, bird watching, and stargazing make it worth the effort to see this stunning island park, so don’t miss out on Michigan’s most special outdoor attraction.

City Attractions

There are definitely some great options for sightseeing while you rent an RV near Perch Lake Campground, but you might have to do a bit of driving to get to them. Up in L’Anse, you can see the Bishop Baraga Shrine in a public park by the water.

This important maritime center has been a major part of northern Michigan for a long time, and the old Carnegie Library now houses a treasure trove of information and artifacts regarding the formation of the town and its contributions to Michigan and its people.Fans of geology and minerals will appreciate a visit to the Mineral Museum of Michigan, a depository for geodes, crystals, minerals, rare rocks, and other geological gems. This top-notch educational facility has silver, gold, and other luminous stones on display, great for children and adults of all ages.Disappear into the beautiful wilderness of the Upper Peninsula when you book a travel trailer rental near Sidnaw, Michigan.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
