Michigan Come Experience the Adventure With Us
Michigan offers an endless variety of entertainment and activities just a short distance from any of our resort locations.
The winter months offer skiing, both downhill and cross country, snowboarding, ice fishing, ice skating and snowmobiling for all ages. Snowshoeing through our hiking trails gives you an atmosphere of clean, crisp air and quiet serenity.
Planned and themed activities are available at each of our resort locations with an abundance of local events, activities, and entertainment not far from your campsite.
Upcoming fun at the resorts:
Save July 6 for fireworks at Arrowhead Lakes, Lake Shore, and Saginaw Bay resorts.
Save September 28 and October 5 for trick-or-treating at ALL resorts. The 28th will be trick-or-treating only, while the 5th will be trick-or-treating with the extra events such as haunted houses/trails and more. Both weekends will be tons of fun!
At our resorts, you’ll find lots to do on the water. Kayaking, paddle boating, canoeing, tubing, swimming… there’s no end to the fun you can have on our lakes and ponds. Lake of the North Resort, in West Branch, sits on Lake George, which is an all-sports lake. You can bring power boats, jet skis, and other toys to have fun on the water on a bigger scale. There’s also fun to be had in the water in the local community. The Saginaw Bay, Lake Michigan, and more are near our resorts, giving you even more opportunity to have fun on the water.
Biking & Hiking
Our resorts provide safe places for biking, be it on the roads through the resorts or the paths in the woods surrounding the resorts. The wooded areas surround our resorts also provide great hiking and adventures in nature. Some of the communities the resorts are in offer additional biking and hiking trails. What a great way to enjoy the beauty that Michigan has to offer!
The lakes and ponds within our resorts offer fun catch-and-release fishing. Several of the resorts have fishing tournaments, during which you can try your luck at reeling in the biggest fish and you can win trophies and prizes! Lake George in West Branch, the Rifle River in Sterling, the Saginaw Bay in the Standish, other local lakes and rivers offer opportunities for fishing outside of the resorts. Take a look around!
At our resorts, you will find basketball courts, volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, shuffleboard courts, tennis courts, a go kart track, putt-putt courses, playgrounds, and more. There are lots of sports and lots of fun just waiting for you!
Michigan is known for festivals, particularly during the summer. We celebrate flowers, military branches, holidays, vegetables, local heroes, cultural heroes, and so much more! The local communities that our resorts are located in offer many festivals for your enjoyment. Check them out!
Part of our plan for activities in each resort includes entertainment. DJs, magicians, animal shows, bounce houses, and more can be found throughout the year. Check the activities calendar and plan around the events! The communities surrounding our resorts offer a lot of entertainment too. Musical acts, casinos, water parks, museums, college sports, racing, baseball games… there’s no end to the entertainment awaiting you!
Putt-putt courses are the source of a lot of fun for guests of Outdoor Adventures. The one in Grand Haven is particularly challenging. The golf fun doesn’t stop there, though. There are disc golf courses near some of our resorts, and there are plenty of Michigan’s championship golf courses near several of our resorts. There’s something for golfers of every level in or near our resorts!
Whether it’s in an exercise class or with the machines in our fitness centers, Outdoor Adventures offers the opportunity to build your strength and get more fit with your camping friends and family. You don’t need to put fitness on the back burner just because you’re away from home or your gym for a bit!
Providing fun and activity for kids of all ages is a big priority for Outdoor Adventures. Playgrounds are in each resort, offering the chance to have fun and make friends. Each week of the peak season (Memorial Day through Labor Day) has a theme at each resort. The resort’s Activities staff plans events for everyone to enjoy! Crafts, games, sports, dances, music, entertainers, special animals, bounce houses, and so much more is available for you, your family, and your friends!
