Ok we are planning to drive with 5th from SW OK to Milford, MI. We will be leaving around the 11th getting to MI 14th leaving 18th. Then thinking of heading to the west side of state and spend a few days.
Then working our way either to Omaha, NE or working our way back home. Looking for nice places to stop along the way. No children, one sm. dog. Any suggestions would be grateful Thanks.(we do need electric)
We have found some pretty nice campgrounds from suggestions on the RV net.

The following state parks are right on the lake shore. Ludington, Muskegon Hoffmaster. Forget Grand Haven SP unless you like parking in beach sand with no trees.

September sorry - leaving Altus,OK the 10th heading to Milford, MI arriving around the 14th-leaving 18th. We use to live in Oscoda, MI. Have been to Traverse City area, and dunes, north all the way to Canada. Haven't been south of TC. Also considering heading south out of Detroit/Milford not go to Omaha and just head south-west working our way back home.

You mentioned dunes. Have you thought about maybe going to Silver Lake sand dunes? They are west of Hart and there are multiple private campgrounds in the area and 1 state park

IF you want DUNES, go see the best, go see the bear, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The park service runs a little campground nearby named the Platte River Campground.

Muskegon State Park is set in some very nice dunes as well.

There's also the NORDHOUSE Dunes, which are CRAZY BUSY all summer long. There's no (close) RV camping, very little parking and huge crowds. These are some of Michigan's oldest sand dunes, and this small portion of shore has never seen any form of commercial development. It's very pristine and relaxing, if you tune out the crowds.

We like Lake Fort Smith State Park in Arkansas. We also like Sam A Baker State Park in Missouri. Then to miss St Louis, we would go east to I-57 in IL and stop at Rend Lake near Benton IL. There are several Corps of Engineers campground and also Wayne Fitzgerald State Park on Rend Lake. We prefer South Marcum Campground. Closest to I-57. Farther north at Shelbyville IL is Forrest W "Bo" Wood Campground. Farther off I-57 but worth it.

In Milford go to Collesanti's Market on Milford rd north of town. Fantastic place. The best imported/craft beer selection along with a huge wine selection. The meat/deli counter is wonderful and the home made deserts are to die for. The produce is good too.

Thank you sdaine and ken58. We will for sure check out the market. I think we are going to try and book Camp Dearborn for Milford looks like the closest with Water and Electric. And to the rest of family who live in Dearborn Hts., Livonia, Novi. Thanks Lonny and Diane. I'm now going to check these state parks and campgrounds out. We have found some nice COE parks. Last year we discovered COE in Ozark, Arkansas nice.

Ken58 Looked up Collesanti's Market, never knew it was there. Made my mouth water just looking at the pictures. All we have in Altus is Walmart. Our saying is if Walmart doesn't have it you don't need it today! We miss the specialty shops. Thanks
