“Wonderful, loved the trails!”

Reviewed Jun 27, 2018

Park was just great, lots to see and do in the area especially if you like to take walks or bike. We walked into town from our campsite one day, another day we walked through the self tour of Fort Wilkins and still had several walks along the Fanny Hooe lake paths and to the camp store, where they have the best ice cream!

“Sites packed close, no cell signal. Cute playground”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2018

Overall Rating

Mostly wanted to append the other reviews to say there is no cell signal here. Boosted Verizon gave 2 bars, but nothing would go through. AT&T was zilch. The bathrooms have WiFi’s, but it is delivered by homing pidgin (250kbps). Some sites have gravel pass, some are just grass. Really hit and miss. Our site (31) was pretty decent. ... more

“Solid campground but pricey for out of state campers. ”

Reviewed Jun 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here in early June to serve as a base camp for our day trip to Isle Royale NP. As many have mentioned, the town of Copper Harbor, MI, is a delightful town worth exploring - and if you are a fan of fishing, boating, or kayaking this place would be great as the West Campground is situated right along Lake Fanny Hooe. The campsi... more

“Very nice! ”

Reviewed Dec 24, 2017

Overall Rating

We were there in July / August 2016. Typical State park but not crowded in the least. Self guided tour at the Fort was interesting. Copper Harbor is a nice little town. Lots of hiking and mountain biking trails. Two track out to the tip of the peninsula was a bit rough but doable in the truck and beautiful. There is camping out there... more

“Outstanding. Clean and quiet”

Reviewed Sep 15, 2016

What a wonderful campground. We were in the west campground. 50 pull through with nice paved spot. No water or sewer. Our spot was roomy, quite and private. It was also well shaded. The east campground seemed more open, less shade, gravel small spaces but better wifi. All interior roads are paved and it is very easy to get to.... more

“Really cute town and decent state park.”

Reviewed Aug 17, 2015

We didn't camp here, but drove up from Houghton to see the mountian drive, the fort, and the town. Super impressed with the kid's hands on activities in the fort. There's also popular mountian biking trails (some of the best in the area). The campground was definitely crowded, but lots of bushes and trees between sites so it looked dec... more

“Typical state park C/G, laid out to get the most sites in, but they are still mainly spacious and wooded.”

Reviewed Feb 07, 2015

Overall Rating

Michigan SP's are expensive unless you are a resident and/or have the annual pass. If you are a Senior Resident you are double lucky. They charge extra fees for everything! Here again, bring plenty of long extension chords as you may or may not need them. Sites are heavily wooded on the fringe and Lake Superior's famous Copper Harbo... more
