5 Reviews of Lake Gogebic State Park
Beautiful all sports lake

Nice large grassy sites - we were in site 50 which is waterfront. Park has two bath houses, this southern most has the hotter showers :), nice boat launch if you need it and a nice beach area. With M28 closed there is a detour that runs right along the park, this contributes to a bit more traffic noise but it is very light for the most part. Pick up supplies on your way as there are not a lot of close options but it is well worth the drive.

Nice view of the lake

Originally we reserved a space by the lake. But the people at the next site were taking up our space. So we moved to another. Which was fine with us as we were tent camping and it was pretty cold(40 degree range) and windy and being off the lake seemed better. The older couple that seemed to be the ones taking care of the place were very nice and understanding.

Lake Gogebic campground is right on the lake.

Lake Gogebic campground is clean and wide open. There are enough trees to provide shade but it is very wide open. There are campsites right next to the lake with clean facilities and great views of the lake.

There is a nice picnic area and a boat ramp. This is a solid park for enjoying the lake.

The Mosquito Coast

Lake Gogebic State Park is an ok campground compared to others I have visited. Some positive things about it that it is not that well-known of a place and one can enjoy some calmness. The site has some of the best maintained restrooms and showers I have seen. The proximity to the Porcupine Mountains is another plus. A big minus for me were the millions of mosquitoes, but I guess that comes as part of the "nature package". If you want to experience the park to the fullest you need a boat. Other than that there are many great trails in the Porcupine Mountains that deserve one's attention.

in the middle of it all

This was a GREAT campground to stay at for checking out some of the numerous popular waterfalls in upper Michigan. Our grassy site was on the shore of the lake with lots of trees. It felt quite secluded and the park wasn't too busy. The facilities were clean and the park rangers were very friendly and helpful. We like trying new campsites on each trip, but this was pretty ideal so we might be back next year!
