“Not great for trailers”

Reviewed Aug 19, 2018

Overall Rating

This park was built by the CCC. So it is nearly 100 years old. It was not built with RVs in mind. I have stayed at other CCC parks, that were better adapted to RVs. The road through the park takes sharp turns through big tall trees. We have a 33 foot trailer, I'm pretty sure this trip took a couple of years off my life. There were only a few sites that had any gravel left on them, they were mostly mud. Many of the sites sloped up hill. We reserved site 19, stated it was good for a trailer up to 35 feet. You would have to be a magician. We moved to 28, which was wide and long, but sloped badly at the back, had to park with the tongue of the trailer a foot from the road. Some of the sites were right on algae covered water, I can't imagine the bugs. If you have a motorhome on the smaller side, this probably wouldn't be as big of an obstacle for you.

No wood available for sale, no direct access to the area bike trail, no water hook ups.

Shower house was pretty new looking, clean. Bathrooms by playground were flush toilets and ok. Playground was well enjoyed by my boys. Very shady park,, tall oak trees throughout.

I would recommend camping at nearby Emerson Bay of you have the choice. I will not come back here for any reason.

“Green & Quiet but a bit drab”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2016

Overall Rating

Most of the amenities at Gull Point are well-worn, but the Park has 112 sites in a quiet, lush, forested setting. Sites are well spaced and most have fire rings. Picnic tables could use a coat of paint. Sites do not have pads per se and have not been leveled, and most are too small for larger rigs. Fine for tents, trailers and smaller motorhomes. There's a mix of reservable and non-reservable sites, as well as sites with electric (30 amp max it appears) and without.

There is only one bathhouse with showers (sites 41-52 are closest to it). Other bathrooms in the park are older and worn, but are clean and serviceable. Nearby Emerson Bay State Recreation Area has more modern amenities but sites are close together and it is a much busier park. Gull Point is for the camper who wants more serene surroundings and brings their own bathroom with them.
