While you might not want to park your RV right in the city, there are several campgrounds near Detroit where you can enjoy a good night's sleep. Wayne County Fairgrounds and RV Park is among the best campgrounds in Detroit, providing pull-through sites with full hookups just 30 minutes from downtown. Due to its convenient location, you'll be 10 minutes from some of Detroit's top attractions, like the Henry Ford Museum and the Detroit Zoo.

Things to Do in Detroit

Things to Do in Detroit

Before bringing your Detroit motorhome rental into the city, it's worth checking how RV-friendly Motor City is. Ironically, despite being famed for its association for manufacturing cars, Detroit is notoriously bad for driving, with some reports ranking it as one of the worst cities in the US. We’d recommend avoiding bringing large rigs into the downtown core. Instead, park at one of the many oversized parking lots nearby or simply leave your RV at the campground and book a bike rental or use public transportation. Alternatively, some campgrounds offer shuttle services into the city.

Detroit has a great mixture of excursions for all ages, making it perfect for family getaways. The Henry Ford Museum is one of Detroit's top attractions, boasting amazing artifacts belonging to famous American innovators and historical figures. While touring the museum, you'll get to see JFK's presidential limousine, a 1928 Model A Ford, and a 1903 Wright Brothers replica. If you're searching for an excursion your kids will love, swing by the Detroit Zoo. This mammoth zoo is among Michigan's top family-friendly attractions and features over 2,000 animals from over 250 species. You'll come across plenty of quirky creatures during your trip, like red pandas, sloths, and rockhopper penguins.

If you'd prefer to spend your days away from the city, you won't have to go far. Located at the center of the Detroit River, Belle Isle is an island park that covers nearly 1,000 acres of lush woodlands and tranquil lakes. Plan a hike across the island and take in panoramas of Detroit's skyline or take a boat out onto the river. There are some exciting attractions on Belle Isle too, including the Belle Isle Aquarium, the Belle Isle Nature Center, and the Dossin Great Lakes Museum.
