Far away AND close to town...all at the same time!

We found this campground on a walk around the town of Ontonagon, but didn't get a chance to camp here as it was already closed for the season.  We caught it after the beauty of the fall color had already gone, but it's probably a stunner!  We'll be back sometime...

For such a township park, it has comprehensive services, with many waterfront options, and all sites have electricity.  The sites are rustic, there is a dump station as well as a water filling station for RVs.  The bathhouse has showers, there is a cute playground, and it has beautiful views of both Lake Superior and the Porcupine Mountains (about 20 miles away).  You can easily walk into town for basic supplies.

Options for hiking, cycling, and water activities of all kinds abound.  This campground is one of many along the shores of Lake Superior's Water Trail.

  • Nice, rustic sites.
  • Views of Lake Superior.
  • The local water trail.  We'll be back to try this someday!
  • Pit toilets if you prefer, especially during COVID.
  • Nice playground, but only for kiddos.
  • Modern bathhouse facilitites.
  • Sanitation and water available at the campground.
  • The Porcupine Mountains in the distance.
  • Group fire ring near the water.
  • A very wintery place, but not open for camping in the winter.
