Two Michigan campgrounds are among the 10 hardest to book in America

Summer is a time when people spend more time outdoors in Michigan, and it’s the perfect time to park an RV or pitch a tent at a campground. Two campgrounds in Michigan are so popular that they’re considered the hardest to book in the U.S.

Michigan Spot names two campgrounds that are the most difficult to book in the USA

The Dyrt recently released its list of the hardest campgrounds to book in the U.S. A national park in Michigan has the most sought-after campgrounds, taking two spots on the top 10 list.

#2 on the list of hard to book campsites is Twelvemile Campground at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Lake Superior. According to The Dyrt, the campground offers stunning lake views and easy access to the water:

Centrally located and just a stone’s throw from a pristine sandy beach, Twelvemile’s well-maintained and easily accessible grounds provide easy access to the waters of Superior as well as attractions such as lighthouses, the surreal Chapel Rock and more.

And since there are only 37 campsites, the site is often fully booked months in advance.

Another campground in Pictured Rocks is on the list #6, Hurricane River Campground. According to The Dyrt, Hurricane Campground offers a truly unique experience:

Whether you take a short hike to the Au Sable Lighthouse, marvel at the remains of shipwrecks from above, or simply admire the bright colors of the cliffs from the beach, this campground offers countless ways to experience Michigan in its purest form.

Since there are only 22 parking spaces available, there is a lot of competition for a reservation.

Campers lucky enough to secure a reservation for these hard-to-book sites can expect an unforgettable experience in one of the most beautiful locations in Michigan and the United States.
