The vast shorelines of The Great Lakes stretch across 8 different US states, plus more than 5,000 miles of shoreline span across the border into Canada. Michigan alone has approximately 3,200 miles of Great Lake shoreline—split between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. For this list we’ll be focusing specifically on our favorite Tentrr campsites near Lake Huron.
At the time of writing this article Tentrr has a whopping 33 different camping (and/or glamping) sites in the Lake Huron area. 18 of those sites are found in the Highland State Recreation Area, which is about an hour south of Lake Huron. The remaining 15 sites are located directly on the shore of Lake Huron, in Sleeper State Park.
This Tentrr State Park campsite is located directly on the bank of beautiful Lake Huron, where guests can wake up to the morning sun reflecting off of the water. This beachside location is as good as it gets in Sleeper State Park. Plus, you’re right next door to another 2,200 acres of wilderness in Rush Lake State Game Area. All of Tentrr’s state park sites include plenty of on-site amenities, just be sure to bring your own food, firewood and bedding. Everything else will be ready and waiting for you, like a queen size bed, adirondack chairs, campfire grill, and even a designated “camp loo” and solar shower.
Another beautiful and private campsite in the heart of Michigan's Sleeper State Park. This site is nestled back into the woods a bit, but you’re still just a short walk away from enjoying a refreshing dip in Lake Huron. As always, the canvas tent will be setup before you arrive, with a queen-size memory foam mattress, side tables, and a propane heater waiting for you inside.
About an hour south of Lake Huron you'll find the Highland Recreation Area, which covers 5,900 acres of forested hills spotted by lakes and marshes. Tentrr has established another 18 campsites throughout this scenic natural area. This particular site is located right on Teeple Lake! Here, you'll be surrounded by miles of multi-use trails, and you'll have easy access to water activities on Teeple Lake as well as the numerous other lakes in the area.
If you're traveling with a larger group, there are also a few "double" campsites to choose from. These expansive sites come equipped with two pre-set canvas tents, both of which sit atop their own wooden deck platform. Plus, all of the usual amenities that Tentrr sites are famous for. When you're not hanging out on the included Adirondack chairs or cooking something up on the grill, you could always take a 40-minute drive southeast and end up in downtown Detroit. It's a great combination of nature and big city convenience.
Last but not least is another double site in the Highland State Recreation Area, but this one is the lakefront version. Just like it's wooded counterpart, this campsite has two full size canvas tents and all the amenities you need. Anyone keen on swimming, kayaking, or just floating the day away on Teeple Lake, this is spot for you. It's an ideal waterfront getaway for a family!
