Nice campground, wooded sites and most were okay for tent camping however some required your tent to be set up a small distance from the fire ring. Clean showerhouses and bathrooms. Big Lake and a few miles of hiking and biking trails right from the campground.
The Iron Ore mines from the past have left the creek water stained red which is why its called the Red Mo with the locals.
Despite the cold wet weather this trip, we had a wonderful weekend!
Nice campground with quiet 250 acre lake for kayaking. Good birding.
