You are in the middle of the best of both worlds. On one side you have Lake Fanny Hooe and in the other Lake Superior. Both offer a great place for water fun. The lake is great for fishing.
You will also find a nice quiet trail around the camp and a short drive to bigger bike trails. The camp has good size spots and lots of trees, a park for kids to play in and you are next to the Fort! Great place for history and fun.
If you walk to town, about 1.5 miles, you will finds many local stores with lots of character, good coffee by the lake where the old fish market used to be and don't forget to stop at the Brickside Brewery.
Easy drive to other beaches, don't forget to look for agates!
Take 26 to Eagle River to The Jampot monastery, the best place for jams and pastries.
