Average KOA- There were many tents and RVs but we had a rustic cabin for 3 nights. The bathrooms could use some attention as well as the playground, but an overall nice stay with easy access to Pictured Rocks hiking and the town of Munising
Busy spot obviously, convenient place to stay being right near the pictured rocks. Be prepared to get close with your neighbors, and the Backcountry tent sites are the same way. Very close together so privacy isn't really an option especially when busy. Bring bug spray, it doesn't help much but the black flies can be absolutely relentless and those things hurt!
We were not prepared for Lake Superior gusts of winds. Literally had to put our kayaks on both sides of the tent. For people that can’t laugh that off, as we did, do not stay right on the water. I would go more towards the road. It was absolutely stunning, the hiking was awesome. Just to pitch a tent was about $30 a night. Not surprised for being in Pictured Rocks and on the water. They do have bathrooms/showers, fire wood, local stores etc. we went to this library/coffee shop. It was gorgeous. It took me about 10 minutes to fall in love with Munsing. Would go back when more prepared, yes it was my first time!
We went in September and it was still mildly warm, bugs were gone the only thing I would recommend is water proof hiking boots which is a must hiking in Michigan anyway.
The Munising / Pictured Rocks KOA. The least impressive KOA I have ever been to. The campsites are incredibly close. See that orange hammock? It’s not ours and is actually on the neighboring site. The sites are all dirt. Not Gravel. Not Grass. Dirt. It is going to be an extremely messy week of camping. The camp store is sparingly stocked, a few essentials, but nothing extra. The big upside is the heated pool. It was very comfortable even in the shade of the trees on a very windy day. Our camper is maybe thirty feet away from our neighbors and we face each other. The hookups are every other site so this forces the campers to always face each other. Overall a very underwhelming campground.
