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
3 individual campsites. Recreation.gov 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.
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.
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.
We didn't camp there. We just used the public dump station, twice. Minimal fee. Very clean.
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.
Stayed here for 3 nights over the summer when every other campsite in the surrounding area was full. Original plan was to stay in northern Minnesota but everything was taken. This ended up being a pretty great setup when we had our first spot. The only drawbacks were that some people seemed to be staying for extended periods and if you leave your campsite for any period of time it can be reclaimed. Even if you have paid. We lost our spot when we went into town and scrambled to find another. Close enough to Apostle Islands and other hiking. There’s a great water source in Ashland next to the lake. We would fill our jugs here.
