Discover Ludington East / Pere Marquette River KOA

When you’re renting an RV in Michigan and are trying to decide on a great place to park, look no further; camping at Ludington East / Pere Marquette River KOA will not disappoint. Firstly, it’s located in the midst of the Manistee National Forest, and you can’t go wrong when you’re surrounded by leafy creatures of nature.

You’ll also have a whole bunch of activities to choose from, such as wine tasting, foam (and pool) parties, chocolate weekends, and Christmas in July - there are also more traditional events, like arts and crafts fairs and wagon rides. Or you could just chill in the swimming pool instead.

If the purpose of your Ludington East / Pere Marquette River KOA camping trip is relaxation rather than parties and events, then you’re still in the right place because once the party is over, the tranquility of the forest takes its place. You can hike, rent canoes, or try your luck in the horseshoe pit. If you’re wondering about the amenities while RV camping here, 50 amp service is the max, there are full hookups, as well as a store and laundry facilities - and dogs are welcome, too.

There’s no need to camp in an RV near Ludington if you never actually visit the place, so go have a look. The charming city is right next to Lake Michigan, and the sunsets here are out of this world. There are also lots of fun things going on in the summer, just like in Baldwin, the little village with a big heart. If you’re into fishing, try to catch the Troutarama event - no pun intended. You can also find Shrine of the Pines in Baldwin, which is a museum of amazingly beautiful and intricately carved wooden furniture - and it’s all done by one man. You could also try your hand at boating or golfing; the recreational opportunities for anyone camping with an RV at Ludington East / Pere Marquette River KOA are endless.

The Great Outdoors

One of the best things about RV campgrounds in a forest is just that: you’re already in the great outdoors, Manistee National Forest specifically. You’d almost be silly not to hike on one of the scenic trails that take you through the area; speaking of that, if you’re bringing your campervan rental, there are many stunning places to drive. You can also go fishing, nature viewing, or boating - or you can impress your fellow travelers by showing off your disc golf skills.

Ludington State Park is located right next to its city namesake and is one of the most popular state parks in Michigan, so you know it’ll be great. There are hardwood forests, marshlands, and almost seven miles of Lake Michigan shoreline - beach fun, anyone? Find a beach that works for you, with calm waters or waves to choose from. Or climb to the top of Big Sable Point Lighthouse. If you want to see the shore from the water, there are kayaks and canoes that will give you a lovely view of the park.

Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area is just north of Ludington State Park and provides even more watery fun - including sand dunes. The small ponds and waterholes make for a really pretty landscape, and you can go fossil collecting, metal detecting, and even gold panning. If you don’t manage to find any precious metals, you might still spot a bird or two - perhaps the federally endangered (and very cute) piping plover is around.

Exploring the Area

Just because you’re camping at Ludington East / Pere Marquette River KOA doesn’t mean that you can’t go on a little ride. Or perhaps it’s not that little: SS Badger will take you from Ludington to Manitowoc, Wisconsin, and there’s great food, free movies, and spacious outside decks onboard. You can choose to come back the same day, and since SS Badger is a car ferry, you can take your motorhome rental with you and spend some time in Wisconsin.

While you’re in Ludington, you might as well stop by the Historic White Pine Village, where you’ll step back in time to the turn of the 19th century and experience firsthand what it was like to be a pioneer in the new world. There are cars, trains, and buildings such as a trapper’s cabin and a school, and you’ll meet some of the settlers, too. It’s an all-around fascinating and entertaining place, open from May until October.

If you’ve decided to book an RV in Mason County to experience some culture, then you’ve made a wise choice. Ludington is full of live music, both by local bands and at local festivals, and there’s more art than you can shake a paintbrush at. Look at stunning photographs at Todd and Brad Reed Photography or admire the work at Ludington Center Area for the Arts. You can’t miss the Art Gallery, founded by visually impaired Mary Case; her use of colors is simply gorgeous.

After all the fantastic art, outdoor fun, and foam parties, you can have BBQ, Thai, or American cuisine - or some seafood. Either way, you should start looking for an RV rental near Ludington East / Pere Marquette River KOA right now.
