“Good Keweenaw Location”

Reviewed Aug 19, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a beautiful area with easy access to Calumet, Houghton, Copper Harbor, waterfalls, and Lake Superior. The campground is OK. The sites close to bathroom are crowded and very open. The sites further away are nicely separated with asphalt pads. The lakefront sites are first come first serve. Shower/bathroom facilities are in fair condition and only one building for large CG. There is one vault toilet (kind of nasty) in a central location.They are preparing to undergo renovations. Another review mentions that you'll need a long electrical cord. Our cord was not long enough but the park had long cords available for free checkout. Michigan state parks require a DNR pass for nonresidents $9/day or $32 for annual. The balance of the park is nice with trails, Lake Superior access and nice walkway for viewing the sunset.

“Beautiful lakeside location, Lake Superior at its finest”

Reviewed Jan 11, 2015

Overall Rating

Popular state park all late summer into autumn leaf peeping time. Mainly grass sites, some asphalt and gravel. As of 2012 they were getting ready for a major revamp of all sites.

Bring long extension chords if you want elec. Water and dump station available. Popular and expensive if not a state resident and/or have annual pass. Outstanding Lake views make up for this.
