=Since we started camping in 2012, we’ve camped exclusively at Michigan state park campgrounds. For the most part, we’ve found a good rotation of campgrounds that meet our needs. These include electrical hookup, within 4-5 hours of home, and a nice beach, especially for our week long trips. We typically do two week long trips per summer. For the past few years, we’ve stayed at the same two campgrounds for those trips. This year we thought it might be time for a camping trip to mix it up a bit.
Our Old Favorites
One of our campgrounds was Ludington State Park, on the shores of Lake Michigan. It’s one of the most popular campgrounds, as it has access to Lake Michigan as well as an inland beach, lots of biking and hiking trails, and a pretty nice town nearby if you don’t mind the 15 minute trip each way. I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with it as it’s pretty far away, it’s where our awning blew apart in a windstorm on one of our first trips, and we’ve always had bad luck getting sites, even though we’re online trying to book at 8:00:01 in the morning six months in advance of our reservation.
