Unlike a lot of Minnesota state parks that usually have a some non-reservable sites, all of the sites at Bear Head Lake State Park are reservable. I was in the non-electric loop, some of the sites will not fit a big trailer either due to the site length or the fact that you will have to navigate between trees to fit. So the spaces do vary quite a bit. The reservation web-site does provide photos so look at those before booking you site. Because I was in Minnesota in late September when the sun is not great for solar unless you are in a open area, site #5 wasn't the greatest for solar as it is fairly shady. Solar wise, it was fine for 2 nights and may be better in the summer. Mostly got 3G on Verizon without booster.
The campground road within the sites is fairly narrow. If you can tent, the backcountry sites that sit on the Lake are really sweet and private. There is a Dump Station. Also you can rent paddle boats and kayaks for use on the lake.
Bear Head Lake is very pretty especially at sunset.
Ely, MN is about 15 miles away and Soudan Underground Mine is about 8 miles away.
