A Small shhhhh!

There are 8 campsites, 1 cabin and a pair of vault toilets, so I’m reluctant to let anyone else know about Joeida Campground…just keep it quiet, ok? We had site #8 which was large, near the toilets and near the water pump. (As someone else mentioned, the vault toilets are like no others we’ve experienced. Amazingly clean and new.) The sites are well-spaced and it was very quiet within the campground. The owners welcomed us and gave us a few tips on hikes and other things to do in the area. It’s a short drive to both Munising and to Grand Marais, and to many other activities within the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Firewood is available at the campground and can be arranged for at the time of reservation. Otherwise, there are several racks of firewood available for purchase nearby.

Worth The Drive

This is a small campground with about 35 sites, most fairly private. We were here mid week just before Labor Day and there were only a handful of other campers. It was very quiet, aside from highway and occasional train noise. The hiking here is beautiful and relatively easy. And, it's close to Superior/Duluth, where we found plenty of opportunities for an outdoor beer. We will be back!

Beautiful Lake, Nice Campground, On Bike Trail

Although none of the sites are on the water, it’s just a short walk to the water from any site in the campground. The campground is clean, has vault toilets, and pumps for water. The sites don’t offer a lot of privacy, but are generally flat and easy to access. We kayaked for a few hours-beautiful and clear lake. It’s a rocky, not sandy, bottom.  If you bike, this is definitely a good place to stay. It’s right on the bike trail and a short ride to Boulder Junction, where you can get cold beer, good food, and great service at Aqualand. Aqualand has all outdoor service and seemed very safe from a Covid 19 standpoint.

A Nice Find

We stayed here in late June 2020. Happy to find that the campground wasn’t too crowded and we were able to snag the last lakefront site.  The campsite itself was big but not huge. Enough for our camper, vehicle and the extras. There were a few trees to offer some privacy from other campers. We were surprised at the lack of mosquitoes, given that it was June in the woods in Wisconsin! The lakefront at our site was a little mucky, but became more sandy a few yards out. Good enough for launching our kayaks, but not great for swimming unless you could tolerate the muck before getting to the sand. There was a small beach area in the campground, but we didn’t use it. It looked nice from a distance and there were a few families using it. The bathrooms were vault toilets and looked new. They were very clean. Firewood was available at several places just outside the campground.  It was a short drive (or bike) to the 50 mile long, paved bike trail. Definitely worth it!
