I don't believe there are any campgrounds "near" Detroit, FrenchBoy.

But the state does have many great State Park/State Forest camping sites that might interest you. Reference the link above. Good luck in your search!

There is nothing really close to Detroit. However there are a few state parks that you could go and camp and drive into Detroit. Maybe a 45 minute ride.

Go to the State Park Reservation System:

midnrreservations.com/campgrounds/search.cfm

Look for:

Brighton Recreation Area (We like the Bishop Lake Campground)

Proud Lake Recreation Area
