Great Campground

Great campground with lots of space. One of the longest running campgrounds on Lake Superior. Family owned, very clean and the bathrooms are very nice.

Peaceful on a Great Lake

We were traveling through and needed a place to stay for the night.  Found this place to be very welcoming.

Our Happy Place

We discovered this campground 6 years ago when my nephew wanted to camp as far north in Michigan as we could. Since then we've spent 2 weeks each August tent camping on the shores of Lake Superior. The facilities are well maintained and the owner and camp host are the some of the most down to…

Nice spots on the water

Rough trail well marked from rock harbor. Tent sites close to the water but they get taken quick. Very nice dock to tie kayaks up to also.

Great starting point

A lot of people around. It has a small store for supplies and a small cafe if your hungry. Not far up the trail are shelters if the weather turns bad. They are first come first serve but can be shared.

Beautiful and quaint right on Lake Superior!

This was a last-minute stop for us because we didn't want to stay at the campground we had originally intended. I found it here on The Dyrt, but bypassed it for another campground option. However, when we drove past the roadside sign, my husband said he wanted to check it out. And we're so glad we…

Nothing wrong, but nothing fancy

Most sites have a view of the water, but this campground has a very specific purpose to this area, and it's not for long term camping. I mean, you can, but there isn't much glamour here.

The good part... They have electric, the bathroom is close, you can take a shower and even do laundry! In the…

Quiet and spacious

Only a few shelters and we got the last one on Tuesday afternoon we arrived.

The shelters are similar to the other ones on the island.

There are outhouses but no potable water nor cell reception.

There were a few people who docked their fishing boat and ate here.

Quiet and Scenic

We could see the water from all shelters, But in 1 the shelter isn't as exposed as there are trees at the shoreline to block the wind.

There are outhouses, but no potable water at the site.

Gorgeous, Established, and has Shelters

Stayed in a shelter (there are 9) - they are no additional cost. There was one open when we got in on a Saturday afternoon in late June. 

It is the most established campground we stayed at. It had pottable water on tap. It had a ranger station and a small store.

Quit Spot for a rest.

Nice private camp ground. Sites are nice on the North side not to crowded with some trees still. South side much more open.

Tent camping.

This is a nice campsite. Not very private no trees or shade but I guess it’s not really needed when you’re on Lake Superior. It’s mid June and the high is 60. You get to enjoy all the amenities of the lodge and casino. The view is very nice.

Amazing place, management, and view!

Went here over memorial weekend and I've gotta say it was just wonderful. This is a more modern camp site with a full bathroom and shower for those of us who dont want to make our own Blair witch movie but that doesn't take away from the beautiful lake view and the wonderful surrounding wild life.…

Busy Camp

Not as many sites located directly on the water, about a 7ish mile hike from Rock Harbor. This is one of the few if only campgrounds on the island with fire rings because of people boating in and fishing. Quite a few tent shelters. Can get crowded because of the close proximity to the harbor.

Lake side camping at its best

Tent camping right on the lake. Camper camping right next to it.
