Fortunately for Michigan, there are numerous places to camp besides the state parks. Numerous State Forest Campgrounds, which offer "rustic" camping have hand pumps for water and pit toilets but no electric, are still open. Michigan is blessed to have an abundance of state lands and three national forests which offer dispersed camping away from designated campgrounds. A quick review of national forest campgrounds show that those are also open although some still may be temporarily closed because of what I believe are access limitations caused by the remaining snow on the ground.
As fiberglass trailer owners, most of which are under 20 feet long, we have the distinct advantage of being able to use the smaller state and federal forest campsites as well as pulling into any clearing off of a forest road or two-track (an adventure in of itself!) and disperse camp. Often these more rustic camping opportunities are adjacent to streams, ponds, and lakes where the wild life is more abundant, the fishing is better, the air is fresher, and the campsites are not on top of each other like in the state parks.
So if you're itching to get out of your home during this isolation period like I am, I think there is no better place to isolate yourself than in the state or national forests. Get your fishing license
while your at it and make a spring fishing adventure out of it!
I've attached a few links that will lead you to the national forests in Michigan as well as the state forest dispersed camping rules.
Hope to see you at the lake!
