20 beach camping spots within driving distance of Detroit


Life is a beach — if you're lucky. Thankfully for us Michiganders, we are surrounded by endless opportunities to slip into the crisp, glistening fresh waters of the Great Lakes while barely clothed and/or fully nude, just like god intended. While camping nude might be frowned upon (might wanna check the fine print on that one), that bitch, er, beach called life is made all the more magical when you can sleep under the stars and wake up to the sound of waves lapping the shore. These destinations, all of which are within driving distance of Detroit, offer beach camping. Though the distance between your tent and the shoreline varies, and, well, water levels are wonky AF this year which may limit beach camping availability, these spots are worthy of your next nearly naked vacation.
