Fantastic setting

Found this place by chance. Amazing location across from Lake Superior. The best sunsets I’ve seen west of the pacific.

First to Review
If it's not closed

Usually closed. Been since 2019 for sure. Most likely for 2021 season too. Accessing the mainland anyway.
Caves by boat (sail, motor) are awesome to see. By kayak are made even better on calm days to access. Be weary as it is a 30+mile Roundtrip route. And that's direct.
The tale is, the light keeper would hear screaming during times of high wind. Thought it to be haunted. It's wind whistling through caves

"Tropical" Feeling

3 individual campsites. to book. Bathroom is to the west of site 2. See nothing but open water (and Minnesota on a clear day) feels like own lagoon. Be kind & respectful on the south side of this island. You'll know what I mean if you see it.

Tallest of 'em all

Site-A is where it's at for group camping (8-24 people) Site-6 is off on its own on the north eastern side which is nice. I'd say site A, 1, 6. Site 3 is okay to. All others are close to ranger station.

Bring head nets and long clothes june-july for bugs.

Long hike to get to The Overlook. Bring a sandwich and water. Hike light.

Hidden Gem

This small - off the beaten path - campground is wonderful. It has all the amenities you would need of a large campground without all the commotion. It sits on the shore of Long Lake, allowing for fishing, swimming or relaxing with cocktails at sunset. It's just south of Copper Falls SP and just a tad further to Lake Superior, which makes the location great for hitting up all the attractions this area of the Northwoods has to offer. RV water/electric sites, tent and cabin options.

Good Hideaway

Was looking for a remote, simple camp ground in the U.P. and was not disappointed. With a small walk to the beautiful beaches, a long day hike of the waterfalls, with access to the Porkies you can not find a better place. Yes, the only thing you will get is running water and vaulted toilets, but the campsites are clean, and well kept, good for just popping a tent and sleeping after a long day of playing in the U.P. play ground.

Nice place,

A bit cramped But clean and friendly

Great City RV Park

First come first served park. We were able to find a spot before 1pm but the park filled up by 3-4pm. There was steady traffic of disappointed RVs driving through the grounds till 6-7pm.

Water and electric sites only with a dump station on site. The dump station is on a hill and with a longer rig our tow vehicle felt in the way of the entrance/ exit and the road to the boat launch.

Great views of Lake Superior and it was fun to walk out on the the lower park of an old ore dock. Ashland is a nice small town with several good options for food/restaurants and groceries.

Check out the artisan well along the lake on the east side of Ashland and bring some empty containers to get some great water.

Would definitely recommend.


I only stayed for one night but it was incredible! The waterfalls are remarkable. Stay for more than one night because there is so much to do.

Waterfalls & the porkies

Good base camp for exploring the porkies and the nearby waterfalls of the black river
