Another very nice Federal Forest Campground. Blacktop roads into and the road in the campground is also blacktop. Pit toilets, but they were cleaned every day. Sites are gravel, but hard-packed, and mostly level. There was no camp host at the time, as I stayed in what would have been the Host's site. Not busy, but I was there in the middle of September.

“Typical NF c/g with gravel sites, brushy surroundings and primitive when we were there. C/G located high on a bluff overlooking (thru the brush) Lake Superior and Black River Harbor entrance. ”

We used to sail our boat into here for years. Black River was originally a harbor of refuge built by the Feds. to provide a safe harbor for sport and commercial fishing boats and recreational boaters. Theree is a gorgeous park with buildings and shelters originally built by the CCC out of local rock. The river cuts back through the high hills and is crossed by a high swinging bridge. Boats dock alongside the riversides toed to sturdy wooden docks.

The campground is up the hill, about a 1/4 mile walk. It is tucked into the woods and again is a place for locals there for sport fishing or hunting. Driving back to the c/g from hgwy 2 is about a 20 mile jaunt on asphalt. It is worth the drive, but come prepared to boondocks.
