ORV Trail Accessible Campgrounds

Printable campground listing and overview map (PDF ~500K)


Locations of campgrounds with direct or semi-direct access to ORV trails in Michigan. Includes links to trail detail, included in our online MI ORV Guide.


ORV operators can access the designated ORV Trail system from the campgrounds listed below.

Some counties allow Off Road Vehicles to operate on county road shoulders enabling enthusiasts to access ORV Trails from a campground that may not otherwise directly connect to a trail. Campgrounds in this situation are noted in the description.

Please note that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources closed several campgrounds starting in 2007 due to budget issues; check with the DNR before hand for any State Forest Campground.

Have a campground that should be included? Drop us a note: info@vvmapping.com

Please remember that ORV use in campgrounds should be limited to driving from camp directly to the trail. Do not drive around the campground and encourage others to do likewise. Other campers do not want dust or the noise of ORVs impacting their experience any more than you would.
