Welcome to the premier “playground” for outdoors and motorsport enthusiasts – St. Helen, Michigan. This is a true “hidden gem” tucked away in the beautifully forested Michigan interior. With a stunning 2,200-acre lake, public beach, 300+ miles of off-road recreation trails, camping resorts and more, St. Helen is, without a doubt, the outdoor activity “capital” of the U.S. mid-east.
And that’s why Tilbury Auto Sales & RV was so excited to have St. Helen Power Sports RV & Auto Sales join our family in the fall of 2022.

St. Helen stands apart as a unique place to experience fun and adventure in a wide variety of ways within a warm and welcoming community. Matt Henning, Sales Manager at St. Helen Power Sports, shared his thoughts: “It’s a different world here in St. Helen. Here, we’re allowed to ride on the streets. We’re allowed to ride golf carts, mini bikes, side-by-sides, basically anything with a motor.” It’s commonplace to drive by restaurants, gas stations and even our dealership in town and see ATVs and UTVs parked outside.
