Fall Camping (and Beyond!) in West Michigan

As summer fades into a few glorious weeks of fall here in West Michigan, it’s the perfect chance to take a weekend camping trip to get out and really experience all that fall encompasses. Pack up the tent or RV, some cozy sleeping bags to keep warm, & hit the road for one of the many campgrounds along the west side of the state. Whether you’re looking to camp right along the shores of Lake Michigan, deep in the woods far away from civilization, or as an easy access route into a nearby town, we’ve got you covered!

Campgrounds such as Twin Oaks Campground & Cabins are open year-round, for those of you brave enough for some cold-weather camping! Twin Oaks is located in the Manistee National Forest, and offers everything from rustic & group sites to full hook-up RV sites. They provide fun holiday activities, including hayrides and kids activities to help keep your kids entertained. Twin Oaks also caters to the snowmobiler crowd, with direct access to trails for lots of riding. With nearby activities including canoeing & fishing the Pine & Big Manistee Rivers, spring steelhead and fall salmon runs, the Big M Trail for mountain biking, morel mushrooming, and ORV/ATV trails, you could visit any time of year & not worry about running out of fun activities to do!

Take advantage of an Autumn Color Tour while you’re on the road by picking out one (or more!) of our 26 driving routes through West Michigan that we’ve designed with the best views of the color in mind. Make sure you check our weekly Fall Color Updates before you hit the road though; the fall colors can be here and gone before you know it, so we’re here to help you not miss any of it this season! If you’re looking for new places to get out and explore while camping, we’ve got you covered. With activities ranging from history to adventure sports, and culinary tours to “mancations,” you’re sure to create your perfect trip through West Michigan.
