In Summary

You’re not going to find Pilot/Flying Js, Loves or a TA-Petros in the Upper Peninsula or the northern part of the Lower Peninsula. Once you get up north, most motorhome dump stations in Michigan are going to be in state parks and privately owned campgrounds.

You will also find that most campgrounds close down for the winter in November and don’t open again until mid-April.
