Camp Dearborn to welcome RV campers early this season

DEARBORN – Camp Dearborn opened its doors early to RV campers this season. The official camping season is May 1 through Oct. 31; however, camp began accepting RV campers Friday.

Lee Morris, interim camp manager, made the decision in response to the many calls he receives from anxious campers.

“The warm weather in March woke up the campers and they are ready to go,” Morris said last week. “We’ve had plenty of RV owners calling about the start of the season. Now I see we’ll be ready by late April, so we will make the change.”

The camp office is accepting RV site reservations now, but tent and cabin rentals will remain within the traditional season of May through October. The camping season with full recreational service begins mid-June and runs through Labor Day Weekend.

Camp Dearborn offers 191 temporary RV sites, 118 tents, 30 rustic cabins and eight new resort cabins. Temporary sites are either full hook-up or electric only and can be reserved by calling either of the camp offices: Dearborn Recreation Department at 313-943-2350 or Milford Camp Office at 248-684-6000.

In addition to the camping area, Camp Dearborn offers acres of picnic area equipped with tables and grills along
side a half-mile beach and swimming lake. The camp is open to the public daily, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Admission at the gate is $4 per car for residents of Dearborn or Milford, $6 per car for all others and $10 per car for all special event dates.

Season passes are available for frequent visitors at the rate of $25 for residents of Dearborn or Milford and $35 for the general public.
