About
Rev up your senses for a unique RV camping adventure midway between Chicago and Detroit, where the nostalgia of Americana and the thrill of automotive history merge into one picturesque setting. Imagine pulling up in your home-on-wheels to a sprawling 90-acre campus dotted with over 20 historic buildings, each ready to transport you back to a bygone era. At this remarkable destination, step out of your RV and into a re-created sense of yesteryear where an old-fashioned gas station sets the scene for tales of the road. Children will be wide-eyed and inches away from iconic vehicles like a 1930 Rolls Royce, famously spotted in a Disney movie, igniting their imaginations with cinematic magic. Grandparents will find themselves strolling down memory lane, their anecdotes reflecting off the polished chrome of a '57 Chevy, as their grandkids listen intently, creating memories that bridge generations. Wander the grounds freely and time-travel through our exclusive dealership row that showcases classic cars in their vintage glory. Pause for a bite in our authentic 1941 Blue Moon Diner or the charming Heritage Cafe, where the flavors of the past meet comforting culinary classics, perfect for every palate in your traveling party. With a backdrop provided by the stunning collection of 400 vintage automobiles, motorcycles, and evocative memories, it's a feast for the soul as much as for the taste buds. This isn't just North America's Largest Auto Museum; it's a living, breathing, rolling tapestry of history that offers the ultimate family-friendly experience. Whether you are an avid motor enthusiast or simply looking for an off-the-beaten-path retreat, this location promises a stay filled with exploration and wonder. Check out the array of events planned for the year, ensuring that each visit is packed with new experiences and discoveries. Remember to adjust your mirrors, because once you visit, memories of the past arent just behind you; they surround you, at this perfect pit stop on your RV camping journey.
