One of our first family camping trips many years ago was a weekend at the Holland Michigan Tulip Festival in our little Apache Camping Trailer. It was just a small weekend event that featured a lot of beds of colorful tulips to look at and a parade. It was fun! The Festival has now grown into a week-long event that includes performances by nationally known entertainers in addition to the beautiful Tulips. Check this website for details http://www.tuliptime.com/ It is a great close-to-home destination for your first camping trip of the season. The Holland State Park offers nearby camping. http://www.michigan.org/property/holland-state-park/
What a way to start the camping season!
