“Nice place to camp on Madeline Island”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Sites are generous in size but there are only 60. Only a handful have electric. Most have sufficient shade for adequate privacy. Pit toilets throughout but only one bathhouse with flush toilets, showers situated between the two campgrounds. Only two showers/sinks and more than once, I had to wait to wash my hands. The water pump near site 12 did not seem operable. In addition to the cost of the campsite, you also have the cost of the ferry ($52 including vehicle for two people) and you will need your vehicle to get to the park. Campground was quiet on a Sunday night in September but there was a noisy drinking party on Saturday night! You can walk to Big Bay Town Park via a boardwalk but I really recommend taking a small boat tour out to explore some of the other islands, once you’ve come this far!
