Overall Rating

This state park also has a good campground layout for most of the sites. There is an upper campground with about 36 RV sites ( 1/2 are electric and other 1/2 non-electric) and 3 walk in tent sites and lower portion that is situated closer to Lake Superior that has about 15 RV (non-electric) sites and 3 cart in tent sites. Some of the sites offer more privacy than others, but most are spaced apart enough that although you may not have tree/hedge privacy you are not right on top of the other camper.

I was in Site #1, upper level, non-electric and non-reservable with enough sun on most days for solar even though it was late September 2015. This campground sits pretty close to Highway 61 and I could a little highway noise but not anything that really bothered me. Site #5 is also a non reservable, non electric site that sits further away from the highway and will provide sun and a great view of Lake Superior.

Some of the best reservable sites on the upper level will be along the outer ring near Lake Superior, sites #25 - #28, all electric. If making reservations, check the length of the site as many sites are varied as to length of trailer that will fit. When I checked in, most of the sites in the Lower Campground that would fit my trailer were occupied but I was quite happy in Site #1.

There are short trails that will take you to Lake Superior from either campground, where you or your dog can swim. There are also two longer but scenic hikes from across the highway, one popular one is hiking to Carlton Peak utilizing the Superior Hiking Trail, the other less popular, and probably more arduous route (we had the trail to ourselves) is to Cross River using the SHT the other way. As you get to the Cross River crossing, you will be rewarded with a neat bridge and more waterfalls. There is also backcountry camping at this area.

No Dump Station, but there are some water spigots throughout the campground. The one spigot near site #10 did have threads.
