"Recreation vehicles" come in all shapes and sizes. Alger County Road H-58, the main road through the national lakeshore, is suitable for any sized recreational vehicle or motorhome when the road is open in spring, summer, and fall. (During the winter, H-58 between the Grand Sable Visitor Center and Kingston Corner is not plowed and serves as a snowmobile trail.) The road is quite curvy in places, so slow down, keep your eyes on the road, and enjoy the drive.

The park's campgrounds and several other roads are not well suited for large RVs, motorhomes or trailers.
For information about the campground site vehicle limits (including photos), please visit the Drive-in Camping page.
