This comprehensive guidebook is for campers, RVers, and anybody who enjoys the outdoors-from anglers and hikers to morel mushroom hunters and families. It's a must-have resource for anyone who wants to escape the crowds and enjoy the best public campgrounds Michigan has to offer.

This is an excellent camping guide for Michigan. DuFresne is a longtime respected Michigan outdoorsman and outdoor writer, and I like his writing style and his tastes in campgrounds. This guide is aimed at tent campers and those with small to medium camping rigs. Many are rustic, and a little off the beaten path. This is an updated 4th edition. I have used DuFresne's guidebooks for years and have had some wonderful experiences because of it! While there is something in it for every camper, if you have a mega motorhome or need all the amenities and atmosphere of the most highly developed KOA, this book might not be for you. But if you enjoy a little wildness, a little privacy, and the beauty of nature when you camp, then you should buy this book!
