Detroit RV Show Begins Oct. 4

Tue Oct 3, 2017

DETROIT — For camping enthusiasts, nothing beats sipping a seasonal beer around a campfire on a warm Michigan summer night.

Except maybe sipping a spiked cider around a campfire while drinking in the fall colors.
According to Darren Ing, director of the 28th annual Fall Detroit Camper and RV Show, the camping season doesn’t end when the kids go back to school.

“Looking back as much as last weekend, you realize the weather in Michigan can at times be agreeable and nice enough out to continue the camping season,” Ing told the C and G News.

“Most campgrounds continue operations until the end of October and kick off their closing weekend with a Halloween event and call that the end of their season.”
