The Great Outdoors

You can start your vacation by taking your RV rental to one of Michigan’s oldest state parks. Since 1917, Interlocken State Park has been a hotspot for outdoor sports and recreational activities. Inside the park, visitors can take a picnic to a day use area or swim from the beach.

One of the best things about RV camping at Traverse City KOA is that Huron-Manistee National Forests are just a short drive south.

On the water, you can spend a tranquil afternoon in a non-motorized boat or paddling a kayak on the many lakes and rivers.
