RV Activities in Leelanau County

No matter what type of adventure you seek, you can find it in Leelanau. There are so many activities surrounding Leelanau Sands Casino that you’ll likely need more than one night to explore them all! From adult-friendly to kid-friendly activities, the possibilities are endless.

Adult Camping RV Activities

Some of the best adult-based activities in Leelanau include wine tours, breweries, and beaches. You can park your camper at the Leelanau Sands RV Park and go explore the nearby area. There are wineries and breweries close by—some just a few minutes away.

Enjoy a bonfire at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Bring s’mores and other campfire foods to satisfy that summer sweet tooth. Come back to your RV home and enjoy some play time at the Casino or find some grub at Big Dex’s located inside the casino.

Our Idea of the Perfect Day with Your RV

  • Morning—Start your day right by hitting the links at one of Grand Traverse Resort and Spa’s three renowned golf courses, located just 46 minutes away in Acme, on the other side of Traverse City.
  • Afternoon—Head back to Leelanau and Big Dex’s for a bite to eat. Then take a quick drive to downtown Suttons Bay for some ice cream, shopping, and strolling around town.
  • Evening—Try your luck at the casino! It’s easy to travel back and forth with our complimentary transportation from the casino to the RV lot. After a night of fun and games, wind down in a lawn chair outside of your RV. Enjoy a night stargazing and visiting with friends and family.

RV Activities for Kids

Traveling with kids in the RV can be rough sometimes. One way to beat vacation boredom is to plan kid-friendly activities. Luckily, there’s plenty to do in Leelanau County such as the Great Lakes Children’s Museum.

Here are some things to consider the next time you find yourself on an RV road trip with kids:

  • Games—Keep restless kids engaged by deeming specific games “RV-only.” Sometimes RVs can be short on space so be sure to grab a deck of playing cards. Learning to play the Michigan classic card game of euchre is a great way to pass the time!
  • Pure Michigan Activity—There’s lots to discover in Leelanau. One of the best day activities to do with kids is to go Petoskey stone hunting!
  • Audiobooks and News—If you’re looking to introduce your kids to stories of adventure, listening to Ghosts of Northern Michigan’s Past is a great way to learn about the area (just be sure the episode is age-appropriate for your kids).

Our Idea of the Best Kid-Friendly Day with Your RV

  • Morning—Visit a nearby beach to enjoy a picnic and some sun. Don’t forget to pack drinks, sunscreen, and some games (like a frisbee)! You can find snacks for the beach and more at the Leelanau Sands Casino’s gift shop (the same shop where you made your RV reservation).
  • Afternoon—If you’re ready for a little excursion and a break in the shade, we recommend visiting Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. Your kids will love the indoor waterpark. The water slide is always a hit!
  • Evening—Finish the day with some sandwiches and fries from Big Dex’s before heading back to the RV for a night of ghost stories and family fun.
