A nice clean park right across the street from Lake Superior, right on the main road around the lake. The campground host directed us to the back of the campground, stating it was quieter back there. There was a train track back there, but the train only came through once during the night. I recommend this campground for it's location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access next to US41. Some noise from the highway and railroad line immediately behind the park, but it didn't bother us. Interior roads are paved. Sites are grass. Some sites very shady, but the site we stayed on had a few trees. Sat TV was no problem at our site and Verizon Wireless had full bars service. About half of the RV sites have 30 amp electric. You may need an extension cord to reach the pedestal. Water is available at only a few places in the park. Good central sewer dump location. Keweenaw Peninsula is beautiful. Nearby casino with RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I downgraded my rating from last year because I reserved a pull thru site and they did not have mine available when I got there. Also, the traffic noise from the highway seemed to be worse then last year. The south section of campground was closed so it got a little busy in the north section. I was surprised how many campers there were, again reservations not essential unless you want a pull thru. A good place for base camp. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great, small state park. Good campground facilities for a state park, with no sewer and water at site, but a very convenient dump station and water points. The park has not much other than the campground. We would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first trip in our 5er so we wanted to try our contained systems and not have full hookups. Campground staff was friendly and helpful, however, not always available. First day they had no one at the gate all day. Have a campground host, but they too were not around very much and the one question I asked (about firewood, he could not answer). Baraga as most Michigan state parks are beautiful and clean. Most sites are grassy and level. They have 6 sites that are pull thru that only 30ft and up can use. You can reserve over the Michigan DNR website. They have a dump station. Electric service is 30 amp in some sites (need to visit web page, map will show which sites). Bathrooms are clean, showers are very hot. Park is across a highway from the Keweenaw Bay, has boat launch. Did I mention highway? Yes the only down side is that the entire park borders US 41 , major two lane connecting Houghton/Keweenaw counties to the south. Needless to say traffic is constant and noisy, it does decrease at night and what litte traffic there was never woke me up. Good place to stop overnight or use as a base camp to visit Copper Harbor and other scenic sites, or to fish. Close to grocery and gas. Definitely will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our second year in a row staying here. See my 7/11 review. We again had a FHU, back-in site with 70+ channel cable TV. Again, there are no restrooms (other than those in the casino) or shower facilities. The only new things I want to add are 1) We arrived after a heavy overnight rain and the first 5 sites had large puddles on the asphalt pad and 2) their hotel Wi-Fi has a sign in page but I did not check to see if we could use it. As I noted last year, only the even numbered sites have the electric on the driver side. Good overnight stop on the U.P. or as a inexpensive base camp for sight-seeing on the Keweenaw Penninsula. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good place for the price. Has cable TV, but no Wi-Fi. Can probably go into the hotel lobby and get a hot spot. No shower/bath facilities, you can go into the casino and use those restrooms. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for 50 amp FHU back-in site, no discounts. RV park is a row of back-in sites at the edge of one side of the asphalt casino parking lot. Sites are fairly level, and the area is wide open which allows excellent satellite reception at all of the sites. No reservations, all sites first come, first served. Was never even half full during our three night stay. Biggest negative is the fact not all sites have 50 amp service. Sites farthest from the road did have 50 amp. Registration is at the Casino hotel on the opposite side of the complex. Decent park for the price, so we would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Most of the previous reviews have covered the basics: FHU, back-in, paved sites with 70+ channel cable TV. They are trying to get their Wi-Fi to work for the RV park area. We couldn't connect in the evening, but were able to do so in the morning. As noted by others, there are no bathrooms or any other typical RV park amenity. The biggest negative for me was that one electric box is shared by 2 sites, so that only the even numbered sites have the electric on the driver's side. Also, several of the sites have some depressions in the asphalt parking pad that make them look unlevel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 3 nights over the Labor Day weekend because they had room. Its a typical casino paved parking lot with level FHU sites along one edge. They had good cable TV but no WiFi. We were told when we asked well in advance about it that they had WiFi. There is no WiFi service to the campground. It is only available in the hotel itself. Everything was very clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Concrete pads, lots average size but not on top of each other. Cable worked great, full utilities. No WI-FI, even went in the hotel and could not get a signal. No showers. For the price not a bad place to stay for an overnight or touring the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Best kept secret on the UP. Great place to park your motorhome and see the Keweenaw Peninsula. At $20 per night (tax incl) for full hookups, cable TV and Wi-Fi, you can't beat it. They do not take reservations so when you arrive, pick a spot, back in and go to the motel to register. Staff friendly and helpful. Had everything we needed and nothing we never use such as showers, restrooms, laundry, etc. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
