This campground is divided in 2 sections, each across the street from the other. A several minute drive to the swimming beach which held hot, stagnant water. Typical shower/bath house for corps of engineers campground. Adequate playground. Shady, well spaced sites. Lots of standing water around water spigot. Quiet, but we were there during the week. We stayed there due to its location, not as a destination. Go if you must.
The only thing keeping this campground from being a 10 is the lack of full hook-ups. If you're quick enough, you can secure a spot right on Lake Superior. But you have to reserve 6 months to the date of arrival, the moment reservations become available for the day...and hope someone hasn't extended their stay through your arrival date. Lots of hiking trails in the "porkies"; some bear but they are scarce. Overall, there is actually not much wildlife to be viewed. Awesome visitor's center and many programs offered throughout the day. Oddly placed sites, and electric hookups double up with the neighbor's. You will be camping on grass. Heed the website's site limits. This place is very popular and nearly impossible to get into without reservations.
Nice campground connected to the historic Fort Wilkins by a short trail. As is with the other Michigan campgrounds we've been to, the sites are laid out awkwardly and the electric hookup is communal. . . 4 sites per pole. We had some trouble backing into our site with a 25 ft trailer; I noticed others have considerable difficulty even with pop-ups. I gave this campground a 7 due to its proximity to Lake Superior (across the road by a short trail) and its connection to the fort. A rarity, there is actually a laundry facility inside the campground. There are 2 campground loops. Nice and quiet, some sites are across the campground road from Lake Fanny Hooe.
Sites are very small, basically unusable fire rings, You with have to be creative with parking your tow vehicle. Discounts for admission to SDC properties. . Nice camp store and pool. road noise from the busy road it sits on. Free shuttle to SDC. Lots of other campgrounds on the same road; we will try another one next time but this one was OK; liked the free cable on all sites.
Excellent campground with sites a few paces from the stream. No need to drive to your fishing location! Nice dining lodge with pretty good food. Camp store with nice people who know how to help you catch fish! Most sites shady, nice campfire programs at night during peak season. Worth the drive.
A nice campground centered around trout fishing. Only one campground is withing walking distance to the streams...this one has full hook-ups (#1) which is currently undergoing rennovations. The other campgrounds are up a sttep and long hill. No real playground equipment at the campgrounds themselves but a nice one down by the stream. Nice restaurant but the food is not good and service awful. Best of the Missouri trout parks to catch fish.
One of our most favorite state parks. You can't beat the beauty of nature here, any season. Excellent weekend campfire programs, but they are fewer as the season closes; electricity and water get shut off Nov 1. Fishing is excellent. Basic sites down on the lakefront, it is usually rowdy down there on the weekends. Beautiful lakefront sites. Some sites can be difficult to get into due to trees or ditches on the roadsides.
This was our second visit to Sherwood Forest. The location is what brings us back, and also the friendly staff. The sites are reasonably spaced, the playground is huge and well equipped. Our sewer hookup ran up-hill, as did the neighbor's. Secluded area in back of campground with porta-potties. Older campground, kept reasonably clean. Bathrooms could use renovating and more care, but it is a very busy campground.
We over-nighted here and found this to be a relaxing stop-over. The pool was very clean and nice as was the spa. There are a lot of park-model permanent residents here and I felt somewhat of an outsider but everyone was nice. The sites are very large and there is a fire ring, although somewhat close to the parking area. You can hear the interstate from the campsite. We would stop here again. Wouldn't make it a destination, though.
Don't be fooled by the photos, this campground is basically a grass parking lot, with rv's parked end to end and row by row. I guess you can see the mountains if you get away from your camper and walk to the end of the road. Sites are fairly close together; you can see into your neighbor's rig if you look out the window. Sparse, young trees. Staff kind of friendly but did not seem to like kids, were rather uppity. It was too cold in June to use the pool, but it looked nice. Very clean and nice laundry facilities.
Awesome overnight campground; we made it a point to return here on our return trip. Sites are spaced out well, full-hookup pull through sites and cable tv; clean pool and spa. The all-you-can eat pancake breakfasts each morning were delicious and served in a friendly atmosphere. Great staff. If we're in the area again and need to stop, we'll definitely be back!
