Unique location close by Lake Huron. Brittany was very helpful greeting us, gettiing us situated, and providing documentation on the museum and surrounding area. We had a very relaxing Labor Day weekend.

A stop in time.
We stepped back in time on a road trip tracing the great lakes. This was a great little spot to pop our rooftop tent in the grass amongst the historic buildings. We had a picnic table and firepit and an expansive grass area to enjoy. There are some really cool old buildings and shops you can walk around as well a little nature trail. Would've been fun to catch it on a day where the general stores was open.

Peaceful little gem
Stayed there for 6 days with my 22ft travel trailer. My spot was next to the Church and I had water and electric (20AMPS) hooked up. Worked there during the day, exploring after. Great location, very quiet during the week. Setup of the historic village is great, people take great care of everything. Spot levelled very well. Port Sanilac is a charming little spot and just 15min walk to get to the Marina where you find a very good restaurant and ice cream store. Beach nearby as well. There is a Dollar General store mid town and another market with gas station just few minutes walking down the main road. No dump station at the location or in town but few miles north is Sanilac County Forester Camp Ground where I was able to use their dump station for $5. Great experience overall, highly recomment this little gem
