Friendly staff, beautiful location

Hands down the people that work here are wonderful. They bring you right to your site and help you back in. They even loaned me an extra power cord and helped hold up my awning when I put it up.

It’s a lovely quiet waterfront and easily accessible. Wish we would have snagged a site with a view but the public access points are just fine.

Cons - not much shade or privacy. Playground is falling apart (slide and swings)

gorgeous views, flooding issues

Any of the sites along the water (except 1-5) have lovely views of Lake Superior and access to the rocky front there. We did use a public access to get to the water also. The sites are not private and it’s very prone to flooding here. I would ask them which sites usually flood before booking, especially if in a tent. Multiple people had to move sites due to this after a storm.

We had lovely camp hosts that had coffee and crafts for the kids. Bathrooms and showers were great. There is also a boat launch within walking distance.

There isn’t much near this park, but the camp store did have a great selection of necessities. Right outside the park is a local family that makes food and I recommend the broasted chicken!

Holy moly the flies are bad. A screened area to eat and fly swatters are required.

private, poor bathrooms

Pros - sites are private, I could hang my hammock, the rangers had a great snake show

Cons - every single toilet was clogged when we woke up and very foul (most of the stars are due to this). Pretty buggy so definitely bring a screened area for eating. A huge water snake emerged out of the dark clay water while we were in it and will definitely be giving me nightmares for a long time.

family friendly

great campground and I will definitely be back. Right in the campground there is a useful camp store, playground, family style bathrooms with A/C, trails and even a little free library. There’s not a lot of space between sites but everything is nicely shaded. inside the park there is a free nature center, free bike rentals with kid carriers, life guarded beaches, ww2 towwrs you can clImb, fishing pier and off roading on the beach. We only stayed two nights but feels worth staying longer next time. I booked this sooo many months in advance and it was the last spot on a July weekend!
