Ready to head Up North – but don’t want to bring the tent? I feel that. Glamping in Michigan is your answer!

Honestly, Michigan was made for glamping. We’ve got sugar sand beaches and dunes that stretch for miles. Dense forests where you can only hear the drop of pine needles and the twitter of birds. Winding lazy rivers, ripening blueberry patches, skiing, sailing, snowshoeing… you name it!

I’ve scoured my home state and found these top 15 glamping sites. This list has something for everyone – from the luxurious bell tents with home-cooked breakfasts each morning (#1 below), to an adventurer’s heaven at Mount Bohemia in the upper peninsula (#7).

Check out the full list below! Instead of dragging along the camp stove and sleeping bags on your next outdoor getaway, relax with a Michigan glamping adventure…

15 Best Spots to go Glamping in Michigan

From luxurious bell tents in blueberry farms, to lakeside yurts in the upper peninsula, here are 15 of Michigan’s absolute best places to go glamping!

1. The Fields of Michigan – boutique blueberry farm glamping!

South Haven, Michigan

Well, The Fields of Michigan is first on this list for a reason, folks. If you’re looking for the best glamping in Michigan, then head to this boutique getaway, set in a picturesque blueberry farm near South Haven, Michigan.

The yurts themselves are gorgeously designed, with comfy king beds, a fully operational bathroom (a boon for any glamping experience!), and a wood-burning stove to keep you cozy in the chillier months.

Outside, you can toast s’mores over the bonfire, wander the blueberry patches, and nibble on freshly made pies. A sumptious cooked-to-order breakfast is also provided each morning (I’m thinking blueberry pancakes, anyone?!).

The location is also fab – just hop on one of the provided bikes, and head to South Haven or the beach. Wine tasting, sailing, fishing, and pretty much any other Michigan favorite activity is nearby, too!

What to pack when you go glamping in Michigan

Obviously a perk of glamping is you don’t have to pack a tent and all the technical items that go along with classic camping!

Still, pack carefully so you’re not disappointed (many of these places are quite remote!). Here are a few things you should be sure to pack to have the most pleasant time:

  • Bug spray – not very glamorous but this is a necessary one! This is the exact bug spray I personally use.
  • Sunscreen
  • Food and drinks
  • YETI cooler
  • Cards
  • Games – some of my personal faves are exploding kittens, bananagrams, or what do you meme?
  • Hammocks
  • Coffee and a french press
  • Books or a Kindle (that’s my fave Kindle model for travel)
  • Cozy sweater and blankets
