Go to mapquest, or some other satellite image website, to get an aerial of the campground as the map on the website is inaccurate as far as placement and proportion goes. Sites 51, 52, and 53 are very, very cramped together. Luckily we had nice neighbors or it could have been awkward while spending time outside. It's about what you'd expect from a city-owned campground. Lots of dandelions and "cabbage weed" which along with the grass was too long. Noticed quite a few huge, deep water puddles which hung around for days, including the one at the front of my site which I couldn't avoid when backing in and it got my truck all dirty. Electrical posts on wrong side on many of the sites. Luckily I had a heavy-duty extension cord so I could reach! Water hookups were nice. Overall, not much thought put into site placement. Bathrooms could have been cleaner. Showers were OK but not very big, nor private. If our stay was shorter I would have showered in our camper. Dump site was OK but on the wrong side. You actually have to drive back into the campground and make the loop to get to it, then head back out when you're done. But, everyone had that figured out so there were no problems when dumping. I usually don't go off what other people say about loud groups. One night it might be bad, and the next night the noisemakers might be gone. There was a mix of young, old, groups, singles, campers, tents, RVs and we didn't have a problem with noise at night and the campground was full. All in all, I would never come back here to "camp", or just hang out and relax. We used this campground only as a place to sleep while we went to Duluth for a wedding, and to visit Jay Cooke State Park and the North Shore. For that: it served it's purpose well, a nice stopover site. One thing to note: the owners of the Willard Manager Inn (right as you turn off of Hwy. 23) are hired by the city to take care of this campground. This is good to know for when the hosts are not around. They were friendly. The host is not real chatty so if you're into small talk don't expect a captive audience. He was all business but very accommodating. We camped at Indian Point Campground in a Travel Trailer.
