Monument Campground was established in 1909 as one of the first campgrounds built in the Huron National Forest. The campground is a fully accessible camping area within a red pine plantation.
Families love this conveniently located campsite, just 15 minutes from Lake Huron off the River Road National Scenic Byway.

Pressurized drinking water, vault toilets, trash collection and grills are among the amenities offered at the campground. A host is onsite to answer questions. In the nearby visitor center, campers can partake in educational programs and browse through the gift shop.

Natural feaures

Each site is secluded and shaded with large oak and red pine near the AuSable River. The river flows from west to east for 138 miles until it reaches the great lake, Lake Huron.

Recreation

Campers can access the Highbanks Hiking Trail from the campground or explore the 22-mile River Road National Scenic Byway that overlooks the lovely AuSable River valley. Beside the campground is the Lumberman's Monument Visitor Center, replete with information about the area's rich lumbering history. Here, visitors can climb through a log jam, use a peavey, cut a wooden cookie with a cross-cut saw, and learn about the life of a lumberjack through video and displays.

Camping with an RV

The smallest and nimblest of fully enclosed RVs. Drives like a van. Loves posing for Instagram.

Class B

A formal-sounding name for camper van, but just as photogenic.

Class A

Drivers should be comfortable driving bus-sized vehicles and dealing with parking limitations. Great for delivery.

Truck Camper

If you can drive a truck, you can drive a truck camper. Makes roughing it significantly less rough.

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.
