My Favorite

This is the most amazing campground there is. I was on the side of the water and it was absolutely exceptional. Easy access to the water and lots to explore whether on the beach or on the trails. Words cannot do the beauty of this campground and area justice. The campground itself was easy to get…

Quiet, coastal, remote.

Great campsite in the middle of Pictured Rocks. Close to the light station and Hurricane river, and about 35 minutes to Munising and the boats. Simple campground, steps from the lake on a peaceful and quiet Lake Superior beach. Wonderful spot.
