Michigan, USA, is probably best known for the city of Detroit, which spawned the sensation that was Motown Records in the 1960s. Campers come to the 1,000-plus campgrounds in the state to be surrounded by natural wonders, such as Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie, and a wealth of woodland, including the Hiawatha and Ottawa National Forests on the Upper Peninsula, known for its wild camping and stunning fall colors.
Within a few feet of waves lapping on the beach, this rustic campsite in Sleeper State Park gets five stars for its nature-loving location. There are also 2,200 acres (890ha) to hike at nearby Rush Lake State Game Area, where you’ll also find boat charters, horse riding, and canoe and kayak rentals. Within a few miles is the small town of Caseville with restaurants and shopping. The site has no electricity, but there are bathrooms with toilets and sinks at the public beach half a mile away. The site does have some creature comforts, however, in the form of pre-pitched tents on wooden decks, furnished with queen-size beds, although you still need to bring your own bedding.
