This is the campground at Hattie Cove. There are other camp sites for hikers scattered in the backwoods. Great hikes to the shore & into woods. Very quiet. Site very level on gravel pad. Electric nearby. Visitor center with rentals of canoes, etc. Great scenery along shore. Enjoyed some short hikes during short stay. Will go back to explore more. Friendly staff.

Paved roads with mostly grassy pads, some paved (near office - like parking spaces). Some large trees for shade. Some sites along river, most have view - can see large ships go by. Campground is a "No" campground - notices posted everywhere stating NO parking, NO dogs allowed, NO wet feet, NO garbage, etc. Not full so no one near by, but could be crowded if sites are full. Fairly tight along river. East of town, but close for restaurants, Soo Locks, etc.

A large campground with many sites. Some of electric sites are just lined up in a row, and some are scattered in more secluded and larger sites. Most of the sites are in trees with shade. Some may fit larger units. There are many trails, a boat dock, beach, and a store. It was raining during our stay so we could not use all the facilities. But we would go back to explore more. Our site was level with view of lake.

A large campground spread along the shore of Lake Superior. Most of the sites are in the open with a few large trees for shade. Grassy sites and mostly paved roads. Many seasonals but it was still neat. Waterfront sites are near the shore through the trees. Some sites overlook the marina. Sites require some leveling. Park is very close to town: one can walk to shops and restaurants. There are many places to eat. Last stop before Canada or BWCA. Friendly staff. Most of the sites are a bit tight to each other.

Great state park campground. Sites nearly secluded from each other, neat old CCC buildings (which have been updated with modern restrooms & showers), new visitor center, friendly staff, great hiking & bike trails to the shore, falls, and deep woods. Roads and pads are gravel, a bit tight with trees in spots. Some sites may fit a large unit. We had no problem with 30' 5th wheel. Close to town of Two Harbors. Would have gotten top rating if sites had views of water and electric available.

A bit off the beaten path, secluded and quiet. All sites on grass with gravel roads. Showers available but are pay, restrooms next door at the NP parking for the Apostle Islands. Close to beach (across road), marina/harbor, and historic fishing works. Hosts very friendly. Nice beach to walk along, clean, sheltered. Can see some of the islands from campground. Most sites open and with few large trees for shade. Tent sites off to side more removed from main camp.

Positives were sites on the water - there was a covered deck that hangs out over river at the sites along the water, all sites have a covered deck with table & bench, paved roads & pads are level, Wi-Fi available, close to town, nice city park right next door (can use restrooms there - no showers, locked at night) with beach & large play structure. Negatives are sites are a bit tight to each other, no shade, and manager was a bit cranky - forgets who the customer is. We would stay here again due to convenience to town and MTU.

We stayed in site 228, in the section across the road from the lake. The campground for the weekend was full every night, very heavily used. But we were surprised at how calm it was, especially after dark. We were concerned that with all the ORVs & 4x4s, that it may be a bit rambunctious, but it was VERY quiet after dark and pretty normal during the day. The park maintains strict control over ORV use inside the campground - not allowed unless road licensed. The restrooms and showers (separate from the toilet area in separate rooms) were not spotless due to the heavy use, but fairly clean (sand is everywhere). One complaint we do have is that multiple vehicles are allowed on each site, so the access roads were very tight and crowded with all the vehicles (even beyond the ORVs) - getting some large units in and out could be a bit tough. Unit across road was very shaded, no grass, but large sites. The unit near the lake had trees but not as thick, so some grass, but sites were much tighter. You can walk to the nearby town for basic food, hamburgers, go-carts, etc. You do hear some of the noise from the road that runs between the two units - it is heavily traveled by the ORV traffic heading to the dunes.The park also has a beach & day use area, a boat launch, off-site parking for extra vehicles & trailers, and within the campground along the lake front, a nice large grassy area with benches for kids to play and to sit and watch the activity on the lake & the sunset.

Campground is built on side of hill, so most sites are tiered or terraced into hillside. Difficult to get into site (2E), had to back in from side. Only a couple of sites appeared to be easy to get into (14E-20E). Cabins also nearby, causes more users for single restrooms & showers. Close to the town of Custer on western side of Custer State Park. Wi-Fi is available at lodges in state park. Host friendly & helpful. Park was full but quiet. All sites shaded by tall Ponderosa Pines. Similar to Stockade North campground on other side of lake.

Park was hard to find due to sign overgrown by weeds & bushes. Campground is located in rural area behind homes. It is very quiet. Park was only partially full. I was able to pull through multiple sites due to empty spaces. There are paved interior roads for full hook-up sites but dirt for electric & tent sites. All sites are grassy with shade from large maple trees. This is a clean park with mostly seasonals. It has small ponds for fishing & swimming and a short hiking trail through woods. Restrooms are dated but fairly clean. Park once had grand plans but is not quite reaching them.

Park is now part of Jellystone Resort. Stopped for 1 night - easy on & off from I-90. Park is very busy with many kids running around - having fun. Not a place for a quiet weekend away, but looks like a great place for families. Staff was very friendly & helpful. Restrooms are dated and well worn and dirty at end of day. Interior roads are tight & congested. Caution needed due to high traffic of golf carts. OK food served at on-site cafe (pizza & breakfast).

Campground behind Super 8 Motel. All pull-thru sites (except tent sites). Guest can use hotel pool. Showers by pool were like warm and not very clean. Restrooms & showers by office much better. Campground between interstate and railroad, but very quiet.

Campground is clean, well cared for. Grassy sites with some landscaping trees and bushes around sites. Paved level site pads. Campground is between railroad and river. Train passes about once per hour during day, less frequent at night. Sites moderately close to neighboring sites. Campground quiet at evening. A few miles from interstate. Host was friendly & helpful.

Roads are paved, sites have dirt pads. Sites have good shade & size (deep). Interior sites back-up to small pond. Nice park with great biking trails, dog park, water park, and close to Charleston. Water park is more for younger kids - splash area, small waterslide, lazy river float, teenagers (ours) may be bored. Hosts offered pancake breakfast. Wifi through-out park. Park well maintained and clean, friendly staff, waited for us when we arrived late.

A very large park and very popular, shows signs of use (trash in parking lots and along roadways & trails). Several campground units, we stayed in Riverside Area #1, Site #398 . Sites have good space between each other with thick vegatation, but site was shallow. In our area nearly all sites were pull-through. Park was thick with poison ivy - a concern for those with kids or pets. Several beaches, including one for dogs - nice and sandy. Restroom buildings planned to be replaced in 2009 (according to park staff). Dunes campground seemed tighter - better for tents or smaller units. Great bike trail around park. Many locations for picnics. Park store with small restaurant.

Campground was maintained, paved roads & pads, nearly level. Some shade on nearly all sites. 2 of 3 bathroom buildings include showers - building in pet loop does not have showers. Pet beach for the dogs to enjoy Lake Erie. Great campground for kids & bikes. Being in island makes stay unique - golf cart rentals available on island but not allowed in campground. Ferry cost may be high for large rigs ($150 for 2 adults, truck & 30' 5er, may make a weekend stay cost prohibitive, but also keeps the campground free of rowdies. Campground hosts were friendly and seen working every day. Many boaters anchor near beach to swim also. Beach is sandy with some rocks. Hosts offered movies for kids on Saturday night, along with some nature programs. Would given a higher rating if showers in all buildings, more toilet stalls available (currently 2 each), a bit larger site, and a cheaper ferry service.
