6 Reviews of Union River Big Bear Campground
Beautiful campground at the foot of the Porkies

This place in the fall is magic. Beautifully wooded, many sites have a view of Lake Superior. You can hear the waves at night. Some of the sites are a tight squeeze if your rig is large, opt for the pull-through. Don’t expect to do work or school, service and internet up there is practically non existent. Instead, walk the shore of Superior, enjoy the all gorgeous sights the Porcupine Mountains have to offer just a short drive away. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well kept.

Right on Lake superior

Campground sites are right next to each other other than that it's a great campground!

Friendly People and Amazing State Park

Not enough good words for the Porcupine Mountains. Views of huge hills sloping into Lake Superior are visible from the entrance. We visited the iconic Lake of the Clouds and hiked to other great sites in the park. My family and I toured the area and spent the night. I only wish we'd have had more time there. Campground owners were very helpful and kind.

Nice place good size site clean camp and restrooms

Will return goods location

Last Minute Save!

This campground saved the day when we visited the Porcupine Mountains. We might have skipped the step about doing enough research, and we arrived after a 10 hour drive to find that everything in the backcountry and campground were 100% full. I wouldn’t really rave about much else, other than the view of the beach and the fact that it’s really close to hiking in the park. The entire grounds are just a large grassy area and a lot of the sites were a little soggy when we were there. BUT, like I said, it totally saved our asses, so it gets 4 stars! Oh, and the bathrooms were SO CLEAN! Like epic clean👌

You will love it here

We decided to go on a two week no plans but travel trip and found this campground by mistake and so happy we did. Super nice family-owned location with showers, wifi and so much more. You are just a 1-minute walk from the lake. You for sure will not be disappointed with the decision to stay here.
