Good Rv park near Dearborn, Mi.

We will be travaling North through Detroit into Canada later part of July and was wanting to tour the Ford Museam and plant at Dearborn, Mi. Any suggestions on a camp ground for a 40' MH?

Haas Lake and Sterling State Park. Both will be about a 30-40 min. drive to the Henry Ford. At Sterling you will be on a bay adjacent to Lake Erie, with full sun sites. Haas Lake has numerous small man made lakes. Another is Detroit Greenfield. Most larger MH are in full sun sites, but are pull thru. Also it has a good size lake and is closer than the previous two to the Henry Ford. Plan on spending 2 or more hours there.

You can easily spend an entire day (or more) at Greenfield Village.

I stand corrected. 2 hrs is a very short visit. We spent a day there.

We stayed at Harbortown RV Resort in Monroe. Still about 30min away but a very nice place. We took 2 days to see the Museum and Greenfield Village, could have done another day.

Ditto for us. Harbor town was a good location for a visit to the Henry Ford and Greenfield Village, which we too did over 2 days.

Got a set of running shoes? I guess it depends on what your expectations are. There is an awful lot of history there. And it all doesn't pertain to Henry Ford. I take the grandkids every other year. One day for each place. I can't suggest any place to camp. Hass Lake is full of seasonals and its dozen miles from me.

NOTE!!!
I-275 is under major construction. I live here and usually need twice as much time to get around.

Check out Wayne County Fair Grounds. Not the fanciest park around. But more than acceptable for a couple nights stay. Close to shopping and places to eat. The RV park was upgraded to 50 and 30 amp with sewers last fall.
Also look at Detroit Greenfield RV Park It is a former KOA.
There are the closest parks to The Ford.
Enjoy your visit.

Stayed at the Detroit Greenfield Campground 2 years ago. Good campground that is close to the Ford museum. Selected since they allowed dogs.

Took one day for the museum and a day for greenfield village. Still feel that I didn't have enough time to fully cover them.

Good Luck

Never did the River Rouge plant tour and we lived up there for 5 1/2 years. Not sure how long that takes.
