If you are searching for the peace and tranquility of pristine nature, Sleepy Hollow does exactly what it says on the tin. A large lake sits in the middle of this 2,600-acre (1,052-ha) park, where there are more than 200 species of bird to spy on, as well as the more common activities such as kayaking and canoeing. From here, you can enjoy the water or take advantage of the abundance of fish that can be caught. The sites are family-friendly with children’s playgrounds, and they have the comforts of electricity and cement slabs.
Accessible by ferry, this island on the coast of Lake Huron has a campsite offering comforts that others may not. There is the luxury of a heated pool, wifi, satellite TV and a basketball court. You can also try scuba diving, where you can search for hidden shipwrecks. Many also choose to rent a pontoon. Fitted with a GPS, it allows you to sail far from the site to reach your ideal fishing spot, or to find your own remote position to enjoy the sunset.
