Bring your highest SPF sunscreen and your biggest beach towel. Orchard Beach Campground is located near picturesque sandy shores overlooking the fabled Lake Michigan. Stairways navigate the bluff, and will lead you to campgrounds and hiking trails alike. Don't forget to bring that big rafting tube you've been stashing in your closet—we have a feeling you'll enjoy the float.

Right on Lake Michigan, seriously, several campsite say they are on Lake Michigan, this one really is. You get to listen to the Lake the entire time you are there.
