Could be so much better!

Review for Indian Point Campground This campground is owned and run by the City of Duluth; I shouldn’t have to say more, but I will. It could be a real jewel, but sadly it’s not. We ended up staying here 17 nights (!!) Because we had some business to do in town and there’s pretty much nowhere else to go. We were moved 5 times during our stay, once because our site was sold out from under us. We weren’t offered any kind of upgrade or anything for the inconvenience, either. The staff is nice, but 2 quit right after Independence Day and left the others overworked. The bathrooms and showers are new but poorly designed (how could that happen in Duluth?) and often very poorly maintained- out of hand soap, paper towels, toilet paper, and overflowing trash receptacles (and dumpster). There are only 2 regular showers for women and 1 handicap bath/ shower prioritized for tent campers; same for men. There are no trail markers for the walking trails or foot paths to the bathrooms hence lots of traffic through the unfortunate campsites around those areas- avoid sites 58 and 59. This is the darkest campground I have ever stayed at, even rustic ones were better lit for safety and security. There’s no security and no bathroom codes. There’s a troubling amount of activity at night that isn’t involving campers- (drugs, prostitution, loitering, driving through and making noise,)and the Duluth police aren’t too interested in driving through at night. There only 7 full hook up sites, most sites are electronic only. Lots and lots of tent campers (21 dedicated sites, and they allow extra tents on the sites for an additional fee)and a few long term homeless tenters (they were not a problem but it’s sad and messy.) I would be more discerning about the campsite we took next time, if we ever return, and probably bring some outside lights with us as well.
