The Henry Ford - Dearborn, Mich.

We've found "Detroit Greenfield RV Park" near Ypsilanti......... Any other parks that you would recommend for touring the Henry Ford for a few days?

It's a 20-25 min. away, but Proud lake State Park is nice. Elec. only sites. In the opp. direction Harbor Town. If your heading east from here Maumee State Park in Ohio is a nice cg.

We stayed at Greenfield last year. It was fine, not a destination resort but a good place for a base.

Detroit/Greenfield is probably the easiest drive into the Henry Ford. People are nice and the campground is fine for what you need it for.

While at the Village (next to the Museum Same ticket works both gates) There is an old country doctor's office, The lower half is brick, the upper half wood (Per the Docent when I was there this building was originally a school house) Interesting story about the doctor.

That building sat on Jackson Road, Also known as Old-M-60, in Tekonsha, MI while I was in Elementary school, While I was in High School the Edison Institute bought it and moved it to the village. I passed it every day on the way to/from school!.

X2. Not a destination RV park, but only $25. There is a Walmart, and other stores, just outside the park fence.

Harbortown RV Resort is a nice park in Monroe . www.harbortownrv.com. We also stayed at Sterling State Park. You have more amenities at Harbortown, but you can get an excellent lake view at Sterling. If I recall correctly, the full hookups at Sterling are 50 amp and the electric only are 20/30 amp. We enjoyed both. Sunrise at Sterling is a wonderful view.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

Thanks for the ideas folks. Since we hope to spend "dawn to dusk" at the Ford, will probably opt for lesser $$$ and amenities (Greenfield is $44 nite)

Here's your camping location. We stayed there a couple of years ago; it was fine and we will stay again this fall for a UM reunion in Ann Arbor. My memory was wrong on the cost. It's $26/night, not $25. Check their website for other activities; the county fair is August 6-11, and the place might be full.

IF you are a member of the Moose (Any lodge) Taylor Lodge has electric only sites, and water you can get,, Dump stations are another issue (They do not have one). 30 amp.

We were at the Henry Ford 2 days after the 4th of July. The crowds were big but it was not really a problem. They open at 9:30AM and close at 5:00PM during the week
