Camp With Views Of A Beautiful Great Lake At This RV Resort

Piling into an RV for a weekend — or a week — with family and/or friends can lead to delightful memories. Whether you're making s'mores at the campfire, taking in gorgeous views on a hike, or laughing and sharing stories before falling asleep, camping can be a great opportunity for bonding on a deeper level with those you care about. The place you choose to camp at can also impact what memories are made because location shapes what activities there are to do and what amenities are at your fingertips. For those who want a memorable time in nature but still want access to modern convenience, the luxury RV resort, Sun Outdoors Petoskey Bay Harbor located in northern Michigan's upscale resort town of Petoskey, is definitely an upgraded camping experience.

This luxury, gated RV park, formerly called Petoskey RV Resort, offers the most amenities that will make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Amenities including basketball and pickleball courts, a fitness center, free wifi, a putting green, an on-site store, and a pool with a hot tub, make this 26-acre campground ideal for family fun. And we can't forget to mention the beautiful views of Lake Michigan you'll wake up to every morning.

Activities in and outside of the resort

Once you arrive and set up, you can immediately begin to travelerblog your surroundings or partake in one of the many activities available at this picturesque campground. Take a dip in the pool, spend some time admiring the views of Lake Michigan (or even swimming in it), relax in the hot tub, catch a movie in the theater, or even challenge your friends or family members in the game room. "[I] am staying at Petoskey RV Resort for the first time and am super impressed with the property," a reviewer wrote on TripAdvisor. "It was very easy registering and the office staff was very kind and explained the resort to us to make us comfortable. [...] Everything seems new and very clean. [I] will stay here every time I am in this area."

Your practical needs will also be met — Sun Outdoors Petoskey Bay Harbor offers bathrooms with showers, a laundry room, a fitness facility, a library and spaces to work. If you do decide to leave the park, you can visit one of the nearby beaches along Lake Michigan, or go hiking in the area. The Old Baldy and Portage Loop and the McCune Nature Preserve Trail are great options to travelerblog. The charming lake side town of Petoskey also presents an opportunity to peruse quaint shops and enjoy delicious dining in its famous Gaslight Shopping District near its idyllic marina.
