“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. ”

Overall Rating

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.
