Great campground to stay with family! Campground was kept very clean, even though it is an older campground. Only complaint would be that sites are close together!
Fun to be able to camp and tube all weekend!
So many things to see and do in Bayfield. It’s an adorable small town with a lot of different options for lodging including different campsites and air bnbs. You can take the ferry over to Madeline Island for the day without a car or bring your car to be able to camp at the state or town park!
Nice place to stay overnight with kids for a reasonable rate. Great playground area for kids to play. Right next to the freeway, so you will hear that at night. There are a lot of restaurant options near by if you don’t want to cook.
Once you get off of the main road you have to drive 10+ minutes on a very rough dirt road. Not fun with a camper.
While the campground was just fine for an overnight stop, we would not have stayed more than one night. The bugs were very horrible. While I know that it’s part of camping, they were swarming so bad you heard a constant loud buzzing. Every time you needed to open your door, the RV would be swarmed with bugs. I am from MN, where bugs are bad, and this is the worst I’ve ever seen.
The lake must be very low, looked about halfway full. Looked a little sad with how little water there was in it.
For the price, I would say it is a little expensive for how it looked this time of year. Might be better during the summer months.
There is no longer camping aloud. You cannot be in the park after dark I believe.
Only stayed overnight, but would have stayed longer if they had more availability! Very clean and updated campground. The staff was friendly, and the smaller spots were a great price for overnight. Park, pool, and splash pad were all great! Nice walking trail along the river. Only downside is the traffic noise since you are right next to the freeway.
We didn’t end up staying here because it was so windy, but if there wasn’t wind it would be a great place to stay. Multiple spots available along the river. There did seem to be someone who was living there, but there are spots available away from their spot. Picnic tables available!
When all the other campgrounds were closed, we found this one and we’re very happy with it. $15 a night to be paid to the camp host. We didn’t have an electric hook up at our site, and didn’t see many sites that had them. Our site over looked the lake and was a very peaceful campground. Short walk to the trails a long the river. A few campers had fishing boats to take to the lake. We would’ve stayed longer if we could have!
We tried to stay here but it was closed. Looks like a great spot for tent campers, unsure if an rv could get up the roads.
Most things around Fish Lake looked like they closed around Sept. 16th. We were going to try and stay here, but weren’t able to. Looked like it was in kind of rough shape with maybe some people living there after it closed.
We stayed overnight on our road trip, and there were only a few people camping when we arrived, very far apart. The spot we found was very large, but had some fire remnants from previous campers, probably a while ago. Some beer bottles and garbage were around the spot also. Great for a free spot. People were atving, so if you’re looking for something like that, it would be a great place that.
Big Bay State Park is a perfect place for your summer vacation. You can camp with a tent or RV at Big Bay State Park. Don’t forget to look at the cost of the ferry over if you’re bringing your RV. It can get expensive depending on length, but still a better deal than renting an air bnb. Easy walking trails and cliffs to jump off. There are a lot of fun places to visit on the island. Definitely recommend bringing a car if you’re planning to tent camp, the park is far from town.
Beautiful campground on an awesome island. Private spots, updated campground with clean facilities. Walking distance to huge sandy beach with a lagoon for small kids to play in the warmer water. Board walk that starts at the beach of the town park and brings you all the way to the cliffs of the state park!
RV Park that is kept very clean. Spots are close together unless you end up with a larger spot. During COVID you need to reserve your time at the pool. Make sure you know that you want to stay here for the full time because there is not a generous refund policy. We were hoping to change our plans due to the bad air quality and we could not get a refund. It does say that on their website, so it wasn’t a shock. The staff wasn’t super friendly.
Only campground that had open availability at the last minute. Everyone was very friendly and campground was clean. Fire pit and picnic table included. They were flexible on the check out time. It is a great place to stay if you want to float down the Chippewa River, Loopy’s the bar in town will shuttle you to and from the campsite and drop you off with their tubes at the river! Fun weekend!
Private sites with electric hook up and a dump station in the 200 camp ground. Great hiking trails to the river and waterfall. We had little to no bugs! Public showers were closed when we went there. Firewood is available to buy certain days when there is someone at the station. Only con is that you had to purchase a year park pass in order to camp, I’m not sure if that’s changed.
Had a hard time finding a spot to stay overnight, and for $30 this was a perfect spot with hook ups. The host or owner was very friendly and helpful. Looks like a lot of full timers or seasonal people. Nothing fancy, but reasonably priced!
There was a sign that says you need an Arizona Land Pass, which would cost $20 for a family. This spot had no special view only of the highway, good for a quick night stop.
