We found this campground on a walk around the town of Ontonagon, but didn't get a chance to camp here as it was already closed for the season. We caught it after the beauty of the fall color had already gone, but it's probably a stunner! We'll be back sometime…
For such a township park, it has comprehensive services, with many waterfront options, and all sites have electricity. The sites are rustic, there is a dump station as well as a water filling station for RVs. The bathhouse has showers, there is a cute playground, and it has beautiful views of both Lake Superior and the Porcupine Mountains (about 20 miles away). You can easily walk into town for basic supplies.
Options for hiking, cycling, and water activities of all kinds abound. This campground is one of many along the shores of Lake Superior's Water Trail.
They charge per person, so I paid $75 for my boyfriend and I to tent camp on the river for the 2 night minimum required. They are money grubbers who charge per person then put multiple parties on one site. Firewood available on site is soaking wet so had a lot of issues getting a fire started. Not much to do at the campground unless you want to pay an arm and a leg to rent one of their watercraft. Staff is incredibly rude and unhelpful. Everything they offer is an extra charge. Will not be returning here ever again.
This is a really nice campground with newer bathrooms. I saw two cabins. The campground is not right on the lake. You have to cross the road to get to the state park with a great beach and a small, two mile trail. The campsites are right next to each other but there were a lot of mature trees. There are a few swing sets at the campground and the state park had a splash pad and huge playground.
After several hours of searching for an open campsite for the weekend mid July we found this campground online and quickly reserved our site before it got snatched up. Nice peaceful drive there… pulled in to find they have recently just been acquired by KOA I believe as there was signage down with few KOA signs up. Beautiful well kept restrooms n’ showers, very nice staff, quaint lil store for those “oops I forgot” items along with small variety ice cream shop tucked to one side. A few cabins looked to be just built as well as possibly a few more to come, walked a trail to find a doggy park as well which is nice to have when traveling with our fur babies. Unfortunately they had canceled a lot of their activities due to COVID but we reserved a tubing trip that was over an hour away for Saturday so we enjoyed the grounds/site to relax around the fire for the most part. Would definitely go back when activities resume, would love to see everything they are working on currently to broaden their activities and lodging experiences!
Was a decent place to camp- lots are very close though! Luckily in the fall it wasn’t very busy. Nice little lake on property. Fire pits in odd spot near the road. No pets allowed-not even a cat that stays inside in your camper! Also- there is a $7 a day fee for out of the county. Even when you arrive late at night.
My family and I ended up at Sunrise Lake after searching for a campground. This is a State Forest site so no reservations are available. First come, first served.
The sites were all very big! We have a very large tent and it easily fit on the site along with our vehicle. All the sites are very well shaded. The vault toilets were clean and the water was very good with no odd smells or tastes.
It's a little strange because Sunrise Lake is across the street, so it is a short walk down to the beach. Speaking of the beach, there isn't much of one but what was there was nice. It sloped gently out into the lake and my kids felt comfortable swimming there. We fished a little from shore. If you're just going for panfish, it's not bad. Just don't expect to catch dinner.
A few bad things. First, the campground and half the sites back up against a road. You will hear every car or truck that drives by at night. We went in the summer with full foliage. The leaves and trees did nothing to absorb the sound. Second, being a small campground, you hear everyone who decides to party late into the night. No ranger means no enforcement of quiet hours. Third, it was hard finding firewood. The closest gas station sold pieces of lumber cut into 1"x1"x15" pieces. Because it was lumber and not logs, they burned so fast.
Overall, it was nice for a weekend getaway, but this isn't a place I would choose to go back to. We will look for something else next time.
