Resort Camping

This campground is great for what it is, a resort type campground with tons of activities and opportunities for fun. It is not a typical campground for people looking to get lost in the woods. There are trails if you want to get away from all the action, however the main campground area is usually quite busy.

Great Forest Campground w/ Lake Access

Have stayed here now 2 years in a row and loved it both times. We've been lucky enough to stay at a site with great water access both years and the way the geography works out, it seems like the majority of these sites are either on the water or right across from it. Being that it is in the forest, there is plenty of privacy with a lot of tree cover from site to site if you need it. It's a solid no frills campground that I will definitely continue to visit.

Great Campground, Slightly Condensed

We stayed at Tourist Park this past August which is obviously peak season. I was able to secure the very last spot for the night we were staying there which was pretty much right next to the check-in cabin so basically right in the middle of everything. We had no problem sleeping or enjoying our stay as everyone is always so nice but if you are staying in the middle area of the campground there won't be a ton of privacy. The campground does have a beach area with a view of Grand Island. The campground is closer to Christmas, MI than Munising but there is a gas station and even a casino near by so it works out just fine. Overall I will definitely be back, but if at all possible I will try to book my site towards the outside of the campground perimeter.

Awesome Campground

Muskallonge Lake is a little bit off the beaten path of the typical UP camping trip but if you can make it, it's an amazing stop. Facilities are fine but the main draw is the combination of the small inland lake (Muskallonge) and big lake right across the street. We stayed at a tent site right near Muskallonge Lake and caught the sunset on the big lake and stargazed out by the small dock they have on Muskallonge. Staff was more than helpful in accommodating us to park our car near the entrance (this stay was the beginning of a week long bikepacking trip). Overall a great stay

Other things to note: Very minimal cell service, as is most of the Upper Peninsula. There is a store just down the road that has all the necessities asl. Photo is of the sunset on the big lake.
