Beautiful destination

Little Bay De Noc, Lake Michigan access with a pier. Only a few campsites, but includes group fire pit, playground and proximity to Pictured Rocks, 1 hour. Lots of hiking and great motorized non-motorized off-road trails.

Great Spot

Easy to get to. No service for TMobile or Verizon, but still a great secluded spot.

Excellent new campground

Open, level gravel sites and some concrete pads scattered throughout this pretty new campground. A few baby trees in the open meadow are trying to get started, but other than those there is no shade. We stayed in a full hook up 50 amp site, and experienced no power issues despite 2 days of…

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…

Best campground in Marquette

This is by far the best campground in Marquette. Rustic sites only, this is the trail head to a network of snowshoeing, biking, and hiking trails. There are 19 sites, three of which line the field the other 16 are tucked in the woods. The campsites are first come first served and have a self…

We love this campground!

We love Tourist Park, and will definitely be coming back! It’s on the back side of the city of Gwinn, which is a smaller more run down little town, 18 miles from Marquette. But this little campground is well kempt! Quiet and relaxing, tucked in the woods with a nice hiking trail, picnic tables,…

Bad vibe, didn't stay

It was super crowded when we got there... All sites are practically on top of each other with little privacy. You can't build a fire without a fire ring but not all sites have them. We tried to build our own with rocks around and a woman watching us, camping across from us, came up to tell us that…

Beautiful, quiet, secluded

The road that the GPS told us to go down was closed but if you follow the sign posts they'll take you the right way. The sites offer privacy and beautiful lakeside views under canopies of trees. The toilets are minimalist but fine. The ambience is amazing. We fell asleep to the sound of Loons over…

Beautiful spot to camp

We got one of the spots closer to the road but turned out great! These spots don't have quite the lake view but seem to feel more quiet and secluded. The lake views were gorgeous, amenities fine. We found this after leaving another spot closer to Marquette that felt uninviting despite all the…

Munising, MI

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…

Very nice- good service

Very nice - we were in site 31. Plenty of space and we did not feel like we were too close to others. They had lots of hiking trails near and a bar and pizza place. Nice store, nice staff, pool/ hot tub, and right on the river. You are also able to take a nearby ski lift up the mountain for some…

Clean, friendly and safe place to spend the entire summer!

We parked our Fifthwheel all summer for the last 4 years. Came up every weekend and spent 4-5 weeks as well. Many friends were made and so much to see and do! The town welcomes all campers as family! Clean bath houses every morning and night. Groundskeeper are awesome and go out of their way to…

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.…

Amazing Spot Right on Lake Superior

Rustic campground far away from it all. At least 11 miles of corrugated dirt road to get to the campground from either way. Very slow going with a camper. All sites are first come first served so get there early if you want a spot. We got lucky and grabbed one of the last sites available and we…

Lovely and Isolated in the Fall

I went in mid-late November so water and restrooms were closed off by then. I was the only camper there but it was lovely. You can hear the lake waves and you’re steps from the trail to the lighthouse. The grounds are well kept and trash is still picked up intermittently.
