Mouth of the Two Hearted River Campground is a quiet, secluded campground on the shores of Lake Superior. Even with rain the first day, the beauty of Lake Superior doesn’t disappoint, but it was nice with sun on the second day. My son and I had a great time! Great spot for rock hunting. Not too far of a drive from Tahquamenon Falls, Paradise, MI or Whitefish Point, the lighthouse and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum. Echo what previous folks have said about getting a county road map as it can be easy to get lost. For reference, if you’re coming in on US 123 and turn onto County Road 500 then you will be on that for about 6ish miles before turning left onto County Road 414. You’ll be on that about 5ish miles before turning right onto County Road 423 and on that for about 4ish miles before it basically dead ends into the campground. Make sure someone knows where you’re headed because there isn’t service for at least 15 miles surrounding the site.
Also, look to buy firewood when you’re closer to Newberry, MI or Paradise, MI. They have one rack (like 10 “cubbies”) of wood at the corner of Co. Rd. 414 and Co. Rd. 423, but it goes fast.
We swam in the river and then the lake.
The Mouth of the Two Hearted River State Forest Campground is located on Lake Superior at the mouth of the Two Hearted River. There are 39 camp sites on a first come first serve basis. This campground is absolutely one of my favorite campgrounds in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. All of the sites are nice and decently level. They are separated into two sections, section #1 and section #2. The sites in section #1 are closer to the suspension bridge that connects the campground to Lake Superior. Section #2 is a little farther from the bridge, down a short dirt road. I picked site 21, which was in section #2 and across the road from one of the pit toilets. There are two well water hand pumps for drinkable water, plenty of trees for hammocks at all of the sites and more than enough to do. The North Country Trail runs right through the campground, there is a boat launch suitable for small boats and kayaks and some of the best sunsets anyone could ask for. The fishing opportunities here are equally amazing with brook trout and steelhead in the river and lake trout, steelhead and salmon in the lake, just to name a few, If I could give one warning before coming to this campground, it would be: DO NOT USE Google maps, Apple maps or GPS to get here. It will be worth every bit to invest in an actual map. There are numerous ORV trails here which come up as the actual roads and I can tell you it can be quite stressful. Even knowing this before coming here I thought I would be able to tell the difference, I can tell you I was absolutely wrong. It was certainly worth it in the end, but if I could go back and avoid that confusion I would. This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and I would recommend the long trip here to anyone. Make sure to bring everything you need, there is nothing forever which is yet another bonus to this fantastic place.
Would love to keep this gem as hidden as possible, so hesitate to recommend, but it is really wonderful. Amazing location and super quiet when the ATVs stay away. The drive out is remote and easy to get lost (I thought). A county road map is handy!
My favorite campground I’ve ever been too. Rustic, and very beautiful. It’s a bit of a venture to get there but well worth it!
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!
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.
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.
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
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.
