GREAT PLACE !

I stayed here for a week and Loved it! It’s a bit of a drive to get there but well worth it! I can’t wait to go back again! It’s only you and Nature at its Best!! I enjoyed all the Quiet!

A good family camp

Direct access to Lake Superior, and wonderfully scenic river for fishing, and canoeing. It's a great family camping experience, or a nice stop for hiking trip accross the Upper Peninsula.

Great views of Lake Superior

The sunsets from this campground are unreal. The walking bridge over the Two Hearted River takes you to the Lake Superior beach. It has small rocks near shore and lots of sand near the river.

Vault toilets and a water pump are available. Picnic tables are at each site.

This is a fun place to stay with kids.

🏕A little slice of heaven ⛺🛶🌞🌚🌠🏄‍♀️🌅

Mouth of the Two Hearted River Campground is a hidden gem. 30 mile drive on dirt roads is totally worth the dust and bumps. Once you select your campsit and get settled head across the swinging bridge that connects you to the Lake Superior Beach. Enjoy a chilly dip or search for agates and other great lakes rocks. Make sure you stay for the most beautiful sunsets around

Beautiful rustic campground

This area is beautiful, on Lake Superior, peaceful and absolutely beautiful, roads can be rough getting to it and expect lots of dirt, but it’s well worth the drive.

Rustic Lake Camping

If you are looking for that off the beaten path rustic campground, this might just be what you are looking for. This rustic campground is located 35 miles north of the town of Newberry on Lake Superior. The first thing you notice driving down the gravel roads is the openness that resulted from a devastating wildfire in late 2011 to 2012.  This is a stark contrast to the woodlands that typify the Upper Peninsula of Michigan but once you drive into the park and campground you see large trees and a nicely wooded campground. 

One of the best features of this campground is the access to Lake Michigan and the miles of beach available for walking. We can only imagine how spectacular the fall colors display is with a mix of deciduous and coniferous trees.  There are 39 sites all on a first-come, first-serve basis which are suitable for RVs and tent. There are multiple shaded camping sites with quick & easy access to a Lake Superior beach and more sites further back into a more heavily wooded area.  Some of the sites that back up to the lake have short trails that go through the pine trees and lead you to where the mouth of the river spills into Lake Superior. It was great to hang out by the lake because the breeze kept the black flies from driving us crazy. The lakeshore is composed of an amazing array of colored rocks and the water is beautiful. Pit toilets were clean, well-stocked and did not smell (super plus for that). Potable water is available from a hand pump. There isn't cell phone service in that area, which didn't bother us.  This is a very popular place for people who like to explore the area on ORVs as there are hundreds of miles of trails and roads to travel.  A boat ramp is located in the park and has sufficient water depth (approximately 3 feet) to accommodate all boats as well as paddle craft.  There is access to the North Country Scenic Trail from the campground but the black flied made it pretty unpleasant for us.
