Michigan, or as the locals call it “The Mitten,” is a Midwestern haven for outdoor adventures — perfect for your next glamping trip.
The nation’s 11th largest state has a variety of landscapes, like soft sandy beaches, swiftly flowing rivers, and the ancient mountain ranges of the Upper Peninsula. Beautiful in every season, it’s no wonder Michigan’s state slogan is “Pure Michigan.”
Whether you’re camping on the Mitten, or on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the summers here can’t be beat. Hot, sunny days and crisp nights make Michigan a enviable summer destination.
Shoulder seasons here, like fall, are rich in color and beg for wood-burning fires. Late spring brings the winter landscape back to life with fresh growth and flowing rivers.
Though winter may seem an intimidating time to be outdoors in the Midwest, you can still get outside and partake in activities like cross-country skiing and ice-fishing. In fact, there’s nothing better than coming back to a toasty cabin after a snowy day hike.
Whether you enjoy forests, prairies, or mountains, Michigan glamping has it all.
Why You Should Stay: The best of both glamping worlds, camp out in a tipi, or stay cozy in a vintage camper near Lake Michigan beaches.
Coloma sits on the shores of South Lake Michigan, making this Glamping Hub offeringa beachy getaway for a small family. Parents can find solace in the tipi, while kids can camp out in the camper.
The rustic tipi is outfitted with a bed and sofa, and adorned in woven Native American textiles. The adjacent canned-ham style camper retains its vintage style charm on the interior, with warm wooden walls and the amenities of any modern kitchen.
