Saginaw sits at the confluence of three rivers close to Saginaw Bay, an inlet of Lake Huron at the heart of the Great Lakes. Approximately 100 miles north of Detroit, "the land of the Sauks" was a thriving fur trading and timber town in the 1880s, thanks to its proximity to several rivers, bays, and lakes that provided various transportation modes for different industries. Today, the surrounding waters make for an inviting playground to adventure-loving residents and visitors and offer an alternative route to connect via ferry to other Great Lakes cities in the United States and Canada. And if you love road trips, Saginaw is also well-placed to get you on the other side of the peninsula facing Lake Michigan. With Interstate 75 running north-south and nearby I-69 running east-west, RV rentals in Saginaw, MI will put you on the road for a truly unforgettable Michigan adventure.
Just 12 miles south of Saginaw lies "The Flats," or the Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge, an urban haven for wildlife spanning close to 10,000 acres. You can bring your Saginaw camper rental here and drive through the six-mile-long road that will take you right into the heart of The Flats where you can marvel at huge flocks of birds that often visit the wetlands. Bald eagles, hawks, sandhill cranes, great egrets and 280 species of birds have been documented in the refuge, including migrant ducks and geese from the Arctic tundra that come swooping in by the tens of thousands.
Add a dose of culture and history into your outdoor adventure at the Chippewa Nature Center in Midland 30 minutes northwest by Saginaw motorhome rental. Nearly 1,200 acres of wetlands, woodlands, rivers, and upland fields will greet you, and you'll discover 15 miles of trails for cross-country skiing, hiking and snowshoeing. For a more leisurely walk on the trails, follow the four-mile paved Chippewa Trail where interpretive stops are installed along the route.
Look west and splash some wine to your nature hikes. The eastern shore of Lake Michigan is lined with dozens of vineyards producing wines comparable to the best of California's. Even better, you can combine your vineyard-hopping tour with hiking and camping in state parks. With your RV trailer rental in Saginaw follow I-75 north then aim west for Fisherman's Island State Park. Follow the vineyards as you head south to Silver Lake State Park and Van Buren State Park. Silver Lake offers acres of mature forest, four miles of shoreline, and sand dunes while Van Buren has a mile-long lake coastline, woodland trails and steep sand dunes with easy access to local shops and restaurants. In between state parks, don’t forget to make a stop at the Traverse City wine country, especially during autumn when the trees transform into vivid yellows, oranges, and reds.
You'll find the one of the closest RV campgrounds for the Saginaw RV rental by owner 15 miles away, with several highly rated options within 20-25 miles. A few of them cluster along Highway 46 to the east and in the south shore of Saginaw Bay 15 miles to the north. Experience state park camping in Bay City State Recreation Area, and you will have access to recreational trails, fishing, playground, and a camp store. Hook up sites offer electric service. If you're planning to pursue Lake Michigan's wine trails, break up your journey at Silver Lake or Van Buren State Parks where electric hookups are also available.
