    White Pine, Michigan

    From the MI DNR Porcupine Mountains website:

    Union River Outpost is a small three-site rustic campground located on the Union River. The campground offers solitude and a camping experience unlike a typical modern campground. Union River is a classic UP trout stream. The sites are ideal for tent, van or compact campers.

    There is a vault toilet, but no running water is available at any of the outpost campgrounds. Fill up at park headquarters or visitor center.

    In the far North of Wisconsin along the Bad River I have 3 campsites that are available through Hipcamp.com. At the main campsite, Eagle Pines On The Bad River, there is a composting toilet outhouse, a fire ring with a grill, a picnic table, a canoe and paddles to use, and amazing hiking to secluded waterfalls. I also have a hike in site with a Tentsile Stingray tree tent along the river, and another hike in site with grassy locations to place your own tents along the river. Our campsites are within 10 minutes of Copper. Falls State Park and near Lake Superior.

    More photos and reviews can be found HERE

    2 sites are HIKE IN! 1/4 Mile. Please read the full description of each site before booking.

    On the upper Bad River, I have a special location that I'd like to share for others to enjoy.

    I was fortunate to acquire this land 20 years ago and now that I have retired from the United States Air Force, I can dedicate time to create peaceful campsites along the river.

    This land was originally railroad property as the railroad companies bought much land in the late 1800's to have options to place their railroads.

    There is still a railroad track nearby but it has been abandoned and it makes a nice hiking path along the river for many miles to the north.

    There are 3 waterfalls nearby and I will have a map at the campsite to find these.
