We're headed up to Sleeping Bear Dunes and Ludington areas in August on Lake Michigan side. We also checked into farther north (Mackinac and Sault Ste Marie), but decided to stay a bit closer to home this time. A friend told me her favorite place to camp was Sault Ste Marie!

What type of campground and in what area of the state will you be going?

Then I can give you some suggestions.

I am open for just about anything.... something a 5 and 6 year old would enjoy. I would prefer to be able to plug in.. We are in the detroit area, so our first trip I would like to be relatively close, be we have all summer and plan to use the camper every chance we get..

Tawas Point is nice. You might check the Mesick area if you are into shroomin' as it is the mushroom capital of Michigan. Any of the CGs along the Great Lakes are good. Wilderness, Cheboygan, The Straits, are nice. Sleepy Hollow has a vast quantity of Geocaches in the area. I've heard Rifle River and Hartwick Pines are desireable also.

I'm a fan of the state parks so I recommend Otsego Lake State Park.

If you just want something close and easy to get used to the rig you can always to go Brighton.

It's a few years old but I like to use this as a reference:
