Ready to embark on an exciting Great Lakes RV camping trip? Then look no further than Port Huron KOA in the town of Kimball, just minutes from Port Huron. It’s conveniently located off Interstate 69 and a little over an hour's drive from Detroit or Flint. The sites at Port Huron KOA have all of the amenities you would expect from a top-notch RV campground like full hookups with 50-amp electrical capacity, a swimming pool, a mini-golf course, a dog park, and 75-foot-long sites.If you feel like doing some cooking outside of your RV rental, there’s a Kamping Kitchen where you can prepare nutritious meals. There’s also a pavilion to enjoy your freshly made meals with the family and visitors.There’s plenty of outdoor recreation within the park and just outside its borders too. A dedicated inline skating area is perfect for those that want to get a little exercise or try out some new tricks. The two nearby ball pits are a great way for the little ones to run off some energy before settling down at camp. If you’re a fan of disc golf, there’s a fantastic course just a short drive from Port Huron KOA.Most of the travelers visiting Port Huron come to experience the grandeur of Lake Huron, and fortunately, you won’t need to travel far to see it for yourself. The city of Port Huron sits at the northern end of the St. Clair River, which connects Lake Huron with Lake St. Clair near Detroit and Lake Erie, a little farther to the south. Both of the Great Lakes are solid options for fishing, boating, paddling, or swimming, but Lake Huron is quite a bit closer, and it doesn’t have the crowds coming from Detroit.

One of the most important things to watch out for when enjoying the Great Lakes is boat traffic. Massive freighters are constantly passing through, so it’s best to stay close to shore whenever possible. One of the best spots for launching a kayak or taking a swim is Lakeport State Park, about 20 minutes' drive north of Port Huron. There’s ample parking here and a nice beach to lounge on too.Due to the flat terrain and extensive development in the area, it can be hard to find a hiking trail when you book an RV in St. Clair County. One advantage to getting a campervan rental here though is that there’s an excellent trail just outside the park boundary at Port Huron KOA. Referred to as the Wadhams to Avoca Trail, this 12-mile rail trail stretches from the town of Avoca all the way into Port Huron Township. If you’ve got a bicycle with you, or rent a set of wheels in Port Huron, this is one of the best cycling trails in the area.If you’re searching for outdoor activities closer to town, Thomas Edison Parkway Boardwalk and Blue Water River Walk will be right up your alley. The former runs along the St. Clair River just below the Blue Water Bridge on Interstate 69. The walking trail has excellent views of Lake Huron and goes for about half of a mile between the Thomas Edison Depot Museum and Lighthouse Park. The Blue Water River Walk is a bit farther to the south and consists of a one-mile long asphalt pathway that starts at the mouth of the Black River. This is one of the best places to get a short jog in when you camp in an RV near Port Huron.
Given Port Huron’s strategic position between two of the Great Lakes, it should come as no surprise that much of the city’s history is centered on nautical undertakings. So it only makes sense that you should start your journey through the past at Fort Gratiot Lighthouse in Lighthouse Park. A guided tour of the facilities gives an excellent rundown of the history of Great Lakes shipping and the role it played in developing the Midwest.Another great stop for history buffs is the Thomas Edison Depot Museum on the western bank of the St. Clair River. Edison is undoubtedly Port Huron’s most famous resident, even though he only spent his childhood there (he sold newspapers outside the train depot that now bears his name). The train depot museum has several interesting exhibits focused on the inventor’s childhood and how he came to develop the creativity that eventually led to some of his most famous works.You’ll never go hungry when motorhome camping near Port Huron either as there’s an excellent selection of restaurants to choose from. There’s everything from Chinese to Thai to Mexican, with a whole lot of classic American establishments thrown in for good measure. One of the more unique options is Detroit-style pizza. The pizzas are thick, rectangular, and come with a crispy crust as the style originated with the pizzas being cooked in steel auto parts trays from the factories. Additionally, as you’re just across the border from Canada when camping at Port Huron KOA, you should definitely try some poutine, the ridiculously unhealthy combination of French fries, cheese curds, and gravy that is closely associated with Canadian culture.
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.
