The Great Outdoors

The easiest part of camping at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping Campground is finding stellar state parks and lakefront beaches to visit. Wilderness State Park is quite close to where you will be staying, so get ready for some incredible landscapes and some magical views of the sunset. Ten thousand acres of evergreen forest populates this charming state park, along with sand dunes, historic structures, peaceful picnic areas, and miles of dazzling lakefront beaches. You can swim, fish, boat, hike, or camp out beneath the stars, gazing at the darkened night skies devoid of light pollution thanks to the park’s remote location.Cheboygan State Park can be found south of Mackinaw City, with even more recreation to bring your way. While Wilderness State Park is found on Lake Michigan, Cheboygan State Park has dreamy beaches along Lake Huron, not far from Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping Campground. A lodge, some campsites, camping cabins, and picnicking spots give you lots to do when you stay at or visit the park by the lake, along with biking, hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, and even cross-country skiing in the wintertime.Mackinac Island State Park is also close to Mackinaw City, though you cannot bring your campervan rental to this island park. What was once one of the oldest national parks in the country is now a gorgeous state park, with dozens of old forts, historic sites, museums, and lots of dense forest groves. You can trek around the island in search of natural stone arches, caves, and other geological features on this special island in Lake Huron.Isle Royale National Park is the only national park in the entire state, and despite its faraway location up by the Canadian border, this remote park is more than deserving of your attention. Much like Mackinac Island State Park, you’ll have to take a boat to this island park in the middle of Lake Superior. On average, only 25,000 people visit the island park each year, meaning you can have plenty of space to yourself when you set off to see this incredible park.

City Attractions

Mackinaw City is a delightful place to explore on foot when you head into the city for a mini day trip. You can grab a bite to eat at some awesome local eateries, pick up supplies, go shopping, or tour some special historical sites while you are in town. Colonial Michilimackinac is a centuries-old native village replica reconstructed on the exact site to adequately represent how it once looked. You can see native treasures and artifacts in this incredible piece of history, or take a moment to soak up the incredible views of the lake from the old fortress town. There are also two amazing lighthouses nearby: The Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse and the McGulpin Point Lighthouse & Historic Site.The Icebreaker Mackinaw Maritime Museum is found on a remarkable old ship that once broke the ice in the Great Lakes. Take a self-guided tour of this awesome ship, watch documentaries, climb through the engine room, and get a feel for what life was like living on the boat.The Mackinaw Bridge and its lovely museum give you even more to see and do when you are in town enjoying some Mackinaw City camping. The breathtaking views from high atop the bridge connecting the two separate parts of Michigan are meant to be seen at least once, and the museum does a great job paying respect to the lives that were lost while building the much-needed bridge. Mementos, artifacts, and other objects used by bridge builders help bring you back to the past to learn about the feat of engineering and how it was constructed.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

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.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

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.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

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.
