The Wayne County Fairgrounds & RV Park in Taylor, Michigan, is very conveniently located for exploring the greater Detroit and Dearborn areas, and is probably the closest campground to Detroit and its western suburbs. Just a short hop from the interstate, the park offers gravel roads that lead to level pull throughs and grass back-in sites with full hookups and good Verizon signal, in a pet friendly environment. The absence of trees allows for great satellite reception, and free wifi is available. Although the park is really quiet, it is not so much a destination campground as there is no pool or playground, but it serves really well for events and rallies because of the ideal proximity to many facilities, and the Detroit Metro area in general. Some of the nearby attractions include the Greenfield Village & Henry Ford Museum, IMAX Theater, Belleville Lake, Huron Clinton Metro Parks, Yankee Air Museum, Detroit Zoo, and the Detroit Metro Airport.
