Be sure to put  the Upper Peninsula on your list of amazing places to RV Michigan for fabulous autumn color.

“The fall color tour season—a time when it’s generally getting too cold for traditional tent camping—is when RV (recreation vehicle) camping really comes into its own,” wrote Mike Taylor in an article posted on Michigan’s The Daily News.

The article brought back memories of when we RVed through the Upper Peninsula on our second autumn of full-time RVing.  We camped in the Hiawatha National Forest at the Colwell Lake Campground. What a dazzling, almost blinding, array of autumn color at sunset. (Read more about the campground by clicking here .)

In his article, Taylor goes on to say: “According to Kelly McGrail, director of marketing for the West Michigan Tourist Association, color tours are just half the fun available statewide in October. Most state campgrounds remain open throughout November hunting season, though some have reduced amenities as the season’s end nears.”

Also, late October Halloween-themed festivals and events abound throughout the state. The list of fun fall happenings, color tours and other RV-centered activities is a long one click here for details.
