Good stay an hour from Pictured Rocks Natl Lakeshore

Nice site with electricity for our 17' travel trailer on the edge of Indian Lake. Could have gone swimming right off our site if later in summer. Weather was cold at the campground but we had sunshine for a nice hike to the beach at Pictured Rocks Natl Lakeshore. Clean bathrooms with only 1 shower…

Super close to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore! This KOA is pretty nice. Has a dog run, facilities including showers/bathrooms/laundry, along with a general store! Decent lot sizes for tents and cabins, we were there in the fall so not as packed in, but would imagine it would be tight during peak…

Rowley's Bay Loop

The loop is 4 miles from lot 1. Camp 13 is one of the most isolated sites which was perfect. Plenty of wood to hack down for campfire and dog came back with a few ticks. Please make sure you are prepared for them even in 20 degree weather.. Campsite seems to be on a bedrock so it was difficult to…

Early spring weekend escape!

We hiked from lot 3 to campsite 14 for a total of 3 miles (give or take). The path was pretty easy which was great for us given that we were carrying a lot of winter gear. The campsite was beautiful and isolated, we were the only ones on that side of the peninsula. Site 15 which was our neighboring…

Great week

July of 2020, my wife, bulldog (Winston Churchill), and myself set up our base camp at Northern Outfitters. We chose this campground because it was a central location in the UP and we wanted to see everything. We are healthcare workers and truly needed a break, this was exactly what we needed.…

Decent if you are the only one there...

The sites are quite close, and it is right off the highway.  Not too far from the dam and there are trails everywhere.  Certain times of the year they will have events and it brings out the rowdy crowd.

Rugged yet mild and Beautiful

Newport State Park is one of my Favorite parks in the State Park System. All sites are hike-in, with numerous waterside sites. I’ve camped here twice, the first time in a low-water summer. Spent all day on the flat rocks exposed in the bay next to our site, and the next year (far wetter) at one of…

Tucked just far enough away.

Only 5 sites at this campground. When I reserved through the NF website, they didn’t even have an accurate map to display how the sites were laid out.

Sites 1, 2 and 3 are all decently spaced apart. Sites 4 and 5 are seemingly connected for double reservations.

Plenty of trees for hammocks and…

My literal home away from home during my travels.

I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say. I am more one to frequent rustic and secluded campgrounds. I found this place on a whim years ago... and now JackPine has a special place in my heart.

When I need to truly rest my bones, this is my go to in this neck of the woods.

Clean and…

Great location in proximity to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, adequate

This is very close to the Munising/Pictured Rocks/ Christmas Michigan areas.

The campground is adequate, but not the most awesome bathrooms.  

There was a great trail near our campsite that had signs and info about the birds in the area (great for young ones especially).  

Adequate place for…

Perfect for trail riding SXS or snowmobiles

Great campground!

Book early to get a spot. It’s clean, quiet and caters to riders. It has a shower building, 2 washers and 2 dryers, restaurant, store (only open certain hours), ice, dump station and 91 octane fuel on site. There is direct trail access from the property, and they provide a free…

Adventure Dog & Co

What an awesome trip! My boyfriend and I, along with our two dogs, went camping at Newport at the end of September in 2020. Stayed at campsite 4. We elected to hike in from where we parked at Lot 3 along the trail that kept us near the water, which I highly recommend. It is a harder hike if you are…
