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!
2. Creekside Glamp Camp
You’ll absolutely fall in love with Creekside Glamp Camp – an 80-year old chicken coop, refurbished with vintage vibes to make the cutest glamping experience in Michigan. You’ll have your own private fenced in garden, with a firepit perfect for s’mores, and bicycles to take for a spin. The barn-style doors slide open giving stunning views of the Dowagiac creek and your own private nature oasis.
3. The Love Shack
The Love Shack is maybe the most romantic and secluded place to go glamping in Michigan. The house itself is enclosed by glass, and sits on a 500 foot cliff directly overlooking Lake Superior. Think peaceful Milky Way views, an outdoor fire pit for s’mores, and just 20 miles from Marquette – the prefect getaway!
4. Little Cabin at Rocky Top Farms
Feel like sleeping in a Michigan cherry orchard? You can do that at the Little Cabin at Rocky Top Farms. Enjoy a custom timber-frame cabin, complete with a romantic sleeping loft (accessible via library ladder). There is even a soapstone woodstove to add to the cozy vibes. In summer, head to stunning Torch Lake which is just two miles away.
5. Outpost Treehouse
East LeRoy, Michigan
The Outpost Treehouse is one of the very few treehouses in Michigan that you can stay in! Set in the pine trees, overlooking a gorgeous field, this is a perfect place to relax in nature with a bit of luxury. It’s built in the style of a forest lookout, and sits on a 65-acre farm, so there will be plenty of wildlife to watch while you’re here. Continental breakfast is even provided.
6. Uncle Ducky’s Paddler’s Village
Uncle Ducky’s Paddler’s Village lets you sleep in a well-fitted safari tent or yurt located right on Lake Superior. You’ll wake up to stunning views of the lake and Grand Island, and spend your days lazing by the beach, kayaking through Pictured Rocks, exploring the cute cafes of Munising, or maybe grilling out by your yurt or safari tent.
7. Mount Bohemia
Lac La Belle, Michigan
It may be remote, but the UP’s Keweenaw Peninsula is one of the most gorgeous places in Michigan. Here, you’ll find Mount Bohemia, which is the ultimate glamping destination with yurts, cabins, camping, and more. There’s even a Nordic Spa! It’s especially great in the winter – as you’ll be right in the shadow of Mount Bohemia (which has double black diamond runs) – which undoubtedly offers Michigan’s best skiing.
8. Glamping Gateway to the North
The Glamping Gateway to the North – also called the “Wanderhut” – has the comforts of a yurt, set in a Michigan woodland just 45 minutes from Grand Rapids. You’ll have a queen bed, festive lights, and even a screened in porch to protect from the insects. This is really the perfect mix of camping and comfort.
9. Wild Cherry Resort
Lake Leelanau, Michigan
Wild Cherry Resort has one of the best locations of any glamping site in Michigan. Choose from staying in a yurt, tent, cabin, or RV – either way, you’ll find yourself tucked away in gorgeous woodland in the heart of Leelanau Peninsula. This means 24 wineries are on your doorstep, plus countless beaches, hiking trails, and small towns. And it’s just a short drive to both Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
10. Yurt at Autrain Lake
Au Train, Michigan

Enjoy volleyball, swimming, bonfires, BBQ grills, and even free movies shown on the beach.
12. Tiki Hut Yurt
St. Ignace, Michigan
The Tiki Hut Yurt is glamping in Michigan at its best. Enjoy the Michigan wilderness with some indoor comforts like a queen size bed, lights, and even a fan and heater dependent on the weather. Indoor bathrooms are just a short walk away, and a foot path leads to downtown after just a quarter mile.
13. Glamping Galore
At Glamping Galore, you can enjoy an entire trailer spacious enough for a couple, that could even fit a small family. It’s the largest property in a resort campground, complete with a brand new deck which steals the show with a lovely sitting area and outdoor table. You even have your own outdoor fire pit. The location is also great – Mackinaw City and Petoskey are both accessible in under half an hour.
14. Classic Airstream in Houghton
Nothing screams “glamping” more than the iconic silhouette of this classic silver Airsteam. This one is set in the RV park overlooking the beach in Houghton, Michigan (you can also ask to relocate within 250 miles of Houghton). It can accommodate up to four people thanks to its spacious interior.
It comes equipped with a blue ray player and surround sound, a full bathroom and shower, and even hammocks, a YETI cooler, a gas grill, and mountain bikes!

It’s fitted out with 16-foot bell tents – each equipped with a full bed, and cozy chairs, plus some glamping essentials (think… marshmallows).

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.
- Food and drinks
- YETI cooler
- Games – some of my personal faves are exploding kittens, bananagrams, or what do you meme?
- Coffee and a french press
- Books or a Kindle (that’s my fave Kindle model for travel)
- Cozy sweater and blankets
What do you think? Are you ready to cozy up at one of Michigan’s top glamping sites? You’ll get the perfect mix of outdoor vibes and comfort at any of these sites.
The only question now is… which one do you choose?
