Michigan is a great place to spend a week (not just because I live here.) If I was you, I would skip Silver Lake. I would go to Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, Traverse City and Mackinaw. Anything in the UP is great to, lots of interesting things relating to maritime and mining history there as well.

I will be at Platte River Campground in about 10 days, staying for 5 nights. This will be my third consecutive year, each year in a site without any hookups. They do have electric sites, but I've never gotten one of those. Very nice campground. Exceptionally clean. VERY high demand - the sites are booked solid through the summer. They have something I have never encountered anywhere else - a room specifically dedicated to washing your dishes!!!!

Only thing I don't like about the campground is that you need to buy tokens to take a shower, so you are spending a few dollars daily just for that. There is a nice little place to rent canoes just outside of the campground, and you float all the way to Lake Michigan.

We just got back from there!!! Stayed three nights in Mackinaw City at Mackinaw Mill Creek campground. I highly recommend it has quite a bit of shoreline and great views of the bridge. From there we went down to Traverse City and stayed two nights at Holiday Park RV Park. We went to Sleeping Bear Dunes, and they are amazing. We also picked 8lbs of cherries as they were just coming ripe last week when we were there. After that we spent three days in Ypsilanti at the Detroit/Greenfield RV Park and spent one day at The Henry Ford Museum and another at Greenfield Village. Little over 1300 mile round trip for us.
