Detroit Area

Can I please get some input on where to stay (or more importantly NOT to stay) in the greater Detroit area. I want to visit the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village and stay as close as I can but still be in a decent area. I'm sure there are areas to stay away from or not travel through. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

BUMP! Apparently no one visits Detroit with no reply's from 99 views. Sound like I should avoid the area.

Bear,
Sorry you got no help, but perhaps no news is the best answer 'cause I haven't heard much good out of that area in some time.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, it's looking like a good place to avoid.

Seeing the Henry Ford is a great experience, it is just not easy to do when you have an rv along. The closest place to park that was 'safe' or at least a certified rv park was about 30 miles away. If driving a distance isn't an issue, Algonac State Park is very nice and runs along the St. Clair River where you can watch the freighters glide up and down 24 hours a day. There are other rv parks, all within the 1 hour's drive to Henry Ford so a search on RV Parks Reviews should help.http://www.campgroundreviews.com/

Thanks for the reply. That was my plan to say some distance away and day trip it. Also, that web site is great! I looked up several CG's I have stayed at and the reviews were spot on, thanks again.

HI! We were just there about 2 weeks ago. We stayed at the Detroit Greenfield RV Park in Ypsilanti.

Nice area, nice lake to walk around. I think it was about 30 minutes from the Ford Museum. They sell discount tickets for the museum, etc. right at the campground office!
