Hard to pick just a few Michigan State parks because of the over 100 there are, 40+ that are extremely nice and very special places with excellent CG's etc. Most all of the best State Parks are on the westside of Michigan and in the U.P. With Michigan having over 11,000 inland lakes and over 3200 miles of great Lakes shoreline and with more than 50% of the state being forested with hardwoods and evergreen trees and then including the tens of thousands of miles of nice clean streams and rivers to fish, swim, boat, canoe or kayak etc, Michigan has so much variety and so much to offer for every hiker, camper, RV'er, tourist, boater, water lover, hunter, fisher, etc and that why it's nearly 1/3 of the states economy. Just pick one of the state parks, National Parks, huge state forests or vast national forests and have a great time! Even if all you want to do is totally relax on a beach or in the real woods with true nature surrounding you 360 degrees. You'll keep coming back year after year like the millions who do each year. Would take more than a lifetime to even visit and see what's waiting for you! We know as we have been RV'ing, camping, boating, traveling, etc many weeks a year in the state for over 50 years during our marriage now and still have so much more to see and do.
