beautiful shoreline year round, rock picking, sunsets, blue ice in winter. Make sure you bring groceries with you as it is 16 miles to Ironwood. Limited cell service can be accessed sporadically and if needed near boat launch and west on Cr 505/122.
Northern Highland American Legion State forest- Plum lake is a long name.
They check in is at Crystal Lake and it's kind of hard to find plum lake if you don't know the area. That is THE ONLY bad thing I have to say.
This is a rustic campground. No electricity or running water. It does have a hand pump if you need water (it was really cool and easy to use). Vault toilets.
Most campsites are "non reservable" but we were able to reserve 1209. Right on the lake and next to the creek. The map makes it look like it is a "hike to" campsite. It is not. There are 4 stairs. You just can't bring a trailer.
I cannot say enough on how great the camp hosts were. Toilet paper replenished every morning. Vault toilets were the cleanest I'd ever seen. It didn't ever smell like a vault toilet! They racked each sites sand after the campers left and stacked left over wood. It was wonderful.
The beach isn't really a typical beach. It's a grassy field that has a set of stairs to the lake and all the sand is under water. But holy moly, the view! See the pictures.
Spacious and level sites, all mowed grass. Very clean bathrooms with hot showers. Absolutely sweetest older lady running the place…she brought me a piece of cheesecake that she made and gave my dog some dog treats, too! Firewood was reasonably priced and a generous amount. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend!
I truly wish I could give Zero stars for this park. The park itself is in a nice location, but the manager has clearly chosen the wrong career path. We had nothing but electrical issues the entire time we stayed there in a very hot part of summer and the managers answer to the problem when I brought it to her attention was, “don’t run the a/c if you’re having issues, no one else seems to have a problem!” On top of that there is a sign forbidding just about everything you can think of posted everywhere at this park….save your time and go elsewhere.
You are able to reserve or have non reserve sites . Beautiful location tucked in by many pines and hardwoods. There is a lake with a fishing dock boat landing and swimming area. You can hike a wonderful nature trail and also bike in areas. There are hiking and a tv trails close by. But the best is no cell service and the sound of the elk and loons in the evening.
Great park with lots of different types of sites however they are fairly close together
Very nice park with several new lots that are all grass with water and electric. Several lots are full hookup. There is not a true dump station, only a spot near the bathroom that you can pull up to dump, but then you have to back out of it. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Quiet campground across the road from the busier Crystal Lake campground. Convenient to the lovely bike trail that takes you to Boulder Junction and Manitowish Waters.
Host was very accommodating when we needed to plug in our boat. The moss-covered old growth forest provided an excellent tent site & entertained our 2 boys under 8 until they tired. The swimming area Was under kept but we still enjoyed all day. Overall our Saturday- Monday visit was very pleasing.
OK New we were far north in May but we had a few nice days in Gogebic State Park of course we had a rainy day also. Loved the area. Nice campground. Loved the surrounding area also. Had fun walking around and the lake was beautiful though cold.
This would be great place to fish and boat in we did neither as we were just passing through.
Restrooms nice and clean and the showers were warm. WE really liked walking to the boat launch area and they did have nice parking.
Took us a bit to find a dry campsite but the ranger was very helpful with us and came out and helped us find a nice site.
They only have 3 pull through sites but the sites are nice and big and if you have problems like us with backing up you will have no problems getting into any of the sites.
We arrived on a Saturday but still found empty sites. There are multiple loops so you have choices. The are vault toilets in the center of the loop and trails lead to them from different points around the loop. A trail leads to a group playground.
The big draw here is fishing on the lake as well as the ATV and motorcycle trails. There is an interpretive trail around Day Lake to enjoy.
This is elk territory so keep your eyes open. We saw one crossing a stream.
Let’s be honest, it’s been awhile since we found a shower and this place has one. It is also in a forested area so we dropped on by. The campground filled up on Thursday for the weekend - but it is Father’s Day so that might make a difference. Campsites are large and there’s plenty of separation. We had a picnic table and another taller table (I’m guessing it’s to clean your fishing catch?). All sites have electric but the fee is reasonable. The shower costs $.25 per 2 minutes. Garbage and even a RV dump station are available.
There is plenty of firewood but you need to cut it to size. They are 6 feet long pine logs.
There is a boat launch right next to camp. A sandy beach is next to a large pavilion and playground. We hiked along a multi-use trail that goes between towns. Lots of ATV trails too.
This is definitely a nice county park.
