Petersburg, Michigan Campgrounds

Petersburg, Michigan Campgrounds
Petersburg, Michigan, is a sleepy suburb of the bustling and somewhat beleaguered Motor City, Detroit. This town has a variety of recreational, shopping and dining opportunities, and it is also only about 15 miles from the shores of Lake Erie, where campers and travelers can relax on the beaches, go swimming and walk the local trails on the shore. Camping sites are prevalent in Petersburg and most welcome families..

Pirolli Park Campground

Pirolli Park is a full-service campground that offers accommodations to all campers. Tenters, RVers and those trailing pop-up trailers are all welcome and serviced here. The RV sites have full hookups for water and electric, and many of the sites have wireless Internet, too. The campground is family friendly and offers all kinds of activities for kids and parents, including arts and crafts, weekly face-painting sessions and clowns. Families are encouraged to walk the nature trails throughout the park and make a visit to the well-stocked fish pond.
