Let's Go Camping & RVing

Camper & RV ShowIt’s a perfect weekend to begin thinking about camping and checking out the RV Show at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center in Traverse City! All types of new recreation vehicles are showing all the newest advances in RVs. You’ll find huge parts and accessory displays along with campgrounds from around the state to round out your experience! The show runs through Sunday.

As many campers discover, campgrounds often fill up quickly during the summer season. The best time to make camping reservations is just before spring, especially if you plan to camp on a major holiday weekend. If the campground of your choice is open seasonally, you’ll want to pay attention to when it reopens.

Advanced reservations also allow you to get a prime camping site, depending on what amenities you like to take advantage of. Water lovers may want to camp near lakes, hikers may choose to be close to trails—if you book early enough, you may be able to select your ideal location.

The Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC), is a member organization that represents all aspects of the camping and RV industries. Consumers can call 517.349.8881 or visit MARVAC for additional information on the RV show.
