A small Michigan State Park with a nice historical area and a campground with few amenities, but improvements are underway.

We spent one night here as a stop over between two travel days. The State Park is located approximately 30-minutes off the main East-West route in the Michigan Upper Peninsula.

The park encompasses an historic iron-ore company town that has several dozen refurbished buildings with very cool displays. We spent about two hours wandering around the park learning the history of the Great Lakes Iron Ore trade.

The park has a very nice visitor center and the rangers were excited to share their park with visitors. The campground is located about ¼ down a dirt road from the historic town area and was an easy walk and easier bike ride.

The campground is grass with gravel roads and sites. Sites were clean for Michigan State Park standards and the park was quiet. Similar to most Michigan State Parks, we had 30amp service, but no water. There were no modern bathhouses or showers, just a few pit toilets although there appeared to be a modern bathhouse under construction (this was during summer 2016). The park did NOT have a dump station when we stayed here, but again there was one under construction. There were several pull-through sites, but we had a back-in and had plenty of room to keep our rig hitched up. There are several very nice boat slips available for rent too for overnight stays.

There was a small beach area on Lake Michigan, but it was rocky--more than sufficient for the kid to splash around for an hour or two and expend some pent-up energy after our travel day.

We have AT&T phones and a Verizon hotspot, but had absolutely no cellular or WiFi signals at this campground, even with our booster.

Overall, a nice quiet campground that will be even nicer in a year or two.
