Trip, Henry ford museum.
« on: May 19, 2004, 03:13:09 PM »
  Ok, the wife and kids have talked me into taking a short break.  We have decided to go to the Henry Ford museum near Dearborn / Detroit.  We have never been in the area before and was looking at websites for campgrounds and info on the museum and village.  They weren't very informative.  The nearest campground I can find is 20 miles away, the KOA at Detroit / Greenfield.  Can any of you locals or anyone else who has been there give some info.  Is this museum and village a one day or two day thing?  Plan on being in the area for 2 or 3 days.  Any suggestions on other attractions in the area?  Thanks for any info...John.

It has been a long, long time since I was at Greenfield Village.  I think it was in the early 70s.  You can see most of it in a day but if you want to take your time and study it a couple of days would be better.  The Thomas Edison exhibit is pretty amazing and the cars are way cool.
I doubt if the camping situation is anything like it was then.  I stayed with relatives in Detroit and drove over.

Haven't been to the Henry Ford Museum for some time. Worth visiting if you are interested in automotive history, vintage vehicles, artifacts, etc. There's about 12 acres of it.

The Kennedy limousine is there. It can be seen in 1-2 days depending upon all your interests including Greenfield Village which is also a "travel through time". You can take a ride in a Model T, vintage steam locomotive, and steamboat if you want.

We've stayed at the Detroit-Greenfield KOA Kampground several times; again last August in fact. We usually stay there when we visit our daughter in Ypsilanti.

It is a very nice campground for being in a city area. It is on Greenfield Lake which is nice. You may want to get a campsite right on the water; sites # 212-218 are quite nice.

There is a picture, I believe in the Outdoor Thread, of a sunset taken from one of the sites there.;action=display;num=1045326523;start=40

Don't forget Cabela's at Dundee. You won't be too far from there and it takes some time.  ;).
