Best campground in America found in Michigan

The best campground in America isn't on top of the Rockies or deep in the Alaskan forest. Instead, it's here in Michigan.

Many who make the trek up north have likely passed it. Indian River RV Resort is just off I-75, nuzzled between Burt and Mullett Lake.

And according to, it's the best campground in the U.S.

The northern Michigan spot is "surrounded by mature trees, offering shaded sites with the comfort of modern amenities," read the website

The park comes fully outfitted for any variety or degree of fun. Blessed with a feel of both rustic isolation and comfortable modernity, the campground offers everything in between.

It beat out campgrounds all around the U.S., outranking spots in Maine, Montana, and Missouri. Some spots were perfect for star gazing while others provided beach side access. To get the most bang for your buck, Indian River is where it's at.
