We stayed here while visiting the Sault Sainte Marie area. It's about 15 miles from Sault Sainte Marie with easy access and good roads. The campground is large, level, and good utilities. They offer free cable TV which we did not use. Also, the free Wi-Fi worked fairly well. Our Verizon phone and Hot Spot signals were weak and the Hot Spot was 3G only. The sites are large with some gravel. Our nightly rate reflects a Good Sam discount. If we visited the area in the future, we would consider staying here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy accessible 35' x 60' gravel sites that are very level and pull-through and easy in and out with my 37' 5th wheel. Over 76 sites and 34 are full hookup. Wi-Fi and cable TV with over 100 channels. Casino and Lake Superior across the street. Grocery store close by. Very quiet and clean campground. Pet walk close to all sites. Stayed 3 nights and would stay again. 25 mi to Sault St Marie. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not a great park but one that fits the bill. Good water pressure, 50 amp service, and sewer connections all were easy to reach. Gravel pull-through sites and roads that are dusty. No trouble getting into our site. Wi-Fi was better then most we have come across in an RV park, was easy to hook up to, not great and could be slow at times. Cell phone connections faded in and out both with AT&T and Verizon. Cable TV was available only in a digital format so if you did not have a way to decode the digital signal there was no TV. Over the air TV is very limited, may be 2 channels. The Bay Mills Casino is across the street and Wild Bluff Golf Course is a few hundred yards down the road. We would stay here again if in the area but would not rush back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Given the options in the area, this RV Park is fine. Full hook ups, long pull through gravel sites, satellite available. Closest available to the Soo Locks and Tahquamenon Falls with full hookups. Across the street from the casino. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects a Good Sams discount. We stayed just for an over night. Park was clean, sites level and all utilities worked well. Wi-Fi was good, but the cable signal not as good as I would have expected. The park is across the street from the casino, so there is not a traffic problem from the casino. The park is just a short drive off of the main east west highway. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, clean park situated across the street from the casino. Long, gravel sites with full hook-ups. (They did not get a 10 because of gravel instead of a concrete pad). They also have limited hook-up sites available. $15 a person free casino gambling for first timers. Well located between Sault Ste Marie and Taquamanon Falls. Would return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really nice place to stay for awhile. The Wi-Fi is super fast but cannot get it to connect in the early mornings until 8 am. There is only about 20 full hook up sights and a lot that have only water and electric. Then there is about another 50 or 60 that is unused for some reason. The lady at check in said there is a bad septic, but they are not working on it. The restaurant at the casino is real expensive and not many selections. I ate from the buffet and the choice was ham or barbeque chicken. Of course, there was good salad and deserts. I tried to extend my stay, but they were booked up so had to move on. I would stay again if ever this way. The Walmart is about 15 miles away. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very clean campground within walking distance to the casino which is across the street. For full hookups with Wi-Fi you can't go wrong. We stayed in the older section because it has trees. The newer section looks more like a parking lot with hardly any trees. A lot of big rigs were parked over there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice Upper Peninsula park. Sites were grassy and fairly level. When checking in, the receptionist worked to find a spot that met our needs, a pull-thru that was satellite friendly. Good location to explore from. 50amp service, water, and sewer all functioned well. Plenty of room to maneuver for big rigs and entrance was well marked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is another park we stayed at last year. We again stayed here 2 nights. I noted in my review last year that they were in the process of adding sites. Since they were starting to get people staying all summer and using up most of the original FHU sites, they decided to put in more FHU sites. There are 45 new FHU, pull through sites. Like the old sites, these are gravel with patchy grass with lots of weeds around them. They are fairly long and wide (they say 35'x58'). I changed the site total to 121 to reflect this. So, they have gone from a 76 site park with only 30 FHU sites to a 121 site park with 75 FHU. The building with the bathroom/shower/laundry facility remains the same, so the bath/shower situation could get tight if most of the 45 W&E sites are full. All the sites have 70+ cable TV and we had no problem with getting the free Wi-F in our RV. There is nothing for kids in the park or the resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very east access from MI 28 if you are crossing the state. Close to a casino that has three restaurants. The park is still in process of adding more campsites which will all be pull throughs. The individual showers are very nice and clean. The laundry consists of 4 washers and 4 dryers which worked well and quite clean. This was our second trip here since we wanted to visit the Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 2 nights and had to settle for a W&E site since all the FHU sites were taken. They are in the process of adding 40 new FHU sites. There is 70+ channel Cable TV but the Wi-Fi was slow and would sometimes disconnect. All sites are gravel/grass pull-throughs. As others have noted, this is a good location for visiting area attractions (Locks, Falls, etc.) but the only thing in the immediate area is the casino. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Interior roads in poor condition; dirt and gravel with lots of deep ruts. Sites fairly level but we arrived after a thunderstorm and large pools of water in between and around sites. Grass in very poor condition. Sites are fairly close but does not inhibit slides. Lots of mosquitoes. Way overpriced for what you get. Nothing about this campground makes me want to come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Some sites are a bit tight for larger RV's; we couldn't open our large awning due to a tree. It was hot when we were there. Everyone running their air conditioning put a strain on the electrical, running about 109 volts on our meter. They are adding a bunch of new sites; hope they beef up the electrical. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean and level, packed gravel sites that are all pull-throughs. Tribal-owned like the casino and conference center across the road. Reasonable size grassy strips between units with young trees. Wi-Fi and water pressure were very good. Location is one hour from spectacular Tahquamenon Falls and Whitefish Point and about 20 minutes from Soo Locks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here because there were no sites available in Sault Ste. Marie. The park was okay. The price was very reasonable but some of the sites are too small for big rigs. Wi-Fi had a very strong signal. A local stray dog seems to roam the park at-will, creating problems for campers with pets. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The lot sizes are adequate and with full hookups. The cable TV and Wi-Fi were excellent. The lots are gravel and not really maintained. We experienced several rainy nights/days and the depressions in our site filled with water. We complained but nothing was done. We found the fire ring on the site contained trash. We make it a habit to clean up after our dog but we seemed to be in the minority as one had to be careful when walking in the grassy area. A stray dog was wandering around the park for several days and complaints to the office did not result in anything. We found later that the owner worked in the casino across the street. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has sites with water, electric and sewer and sites with water and electric only. The rate shown is for water and electric only. Water pressure is good, as is the power. The laundry, individual showers and bathrooms are very well maintained. The Baymills Casino complex is across the street. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The most recent reviewer had most of the facts wrong for Bay Mills RV Park. They showed the park as having electric only with no other amenities (cable TV, laundry, bathhouse), that Bay Mills actually has. I think they were reviewing the nearby state park. I think it is unfair to this park and it's potential customers to keep it listed as an electric only, rustic campground. At the very least, let the park listing show the actual facilities and such. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a casino campground that would be good for a one or two night stay unless one is willing to put up with several shortcomings. All sites are level pull thru, but are only about 15 feet apart. You will be close to your neighbor. 50A service is available, but the voltage was low. Not all sites have sewer. There is a discount for no sewer. There is a picnic table and fire ring on each site, but due to the closeness of rigs building a fire may not be possible. The cable service was good. Roads and pads are dusty dirt/gravel. More dirt than gravel. The bath house/restroom facility is located in one building, but oddly designed. The showers are separate from the restrooms requiring a walk outside and around the building after use of one or the other. The showers were always un-clean. Avoid any site with a street light. They are extremely bright and will flood the inside of the rig at night. Free Wi-Fi is available in the hotel/casino area. It cannot be received in the campground even tho it's only about 300 feet away. The campground staff is friendly, but has a limited knowledge of RVing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground isn't close to anything except a joining casino. Good drive to get to any of the attractions. Facilities are clean, but campground roads are dirt and very rutted. Trees immature, no shade. Good as one night stay if passing thru area. We're adults, no kids, wouldn't stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, open, newer park. Good overnight park or base for local sights (Whitefish, Soo Locks, Taquenahmen Falls) if you don't mind driving an hour. Because they are newer the facilities (hookups, laundry, showers, cable TV) are probably better than anything within 50 miles. Not much for kids to do so it should be quiet. Nice Lake Superior view and natural A/C off the lake keeps it generally cool (under 80) in the summer. Nothing but the casino nearby. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Across the street from the Bay Mills Resort & Casino and a beautiful view of the bay on Lake Superior. All sites are pull-thru and fairly roomy, but the trees are all too young to provide shade yet. Firepits at every site. There is free wi-fi at the hotel; some sites reportedly can pick up the signal, but most just walk across the street and sit in the lobby. Our stay was pleasant and quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
"State Parks" all have several things in common - trees, usually narrow roads, close sites and lots of families with children. That said, we like them because they are "natural" and feel like "real camping". The smell of everyone burning wood in the fire pits, pine trees, children playing, birds singing, people laughing, it's all just so much more relaxed than at a "formal campground". The "down-side" is that you don't have TV, WiFi, and here, not even water or sewer hook-ups, but we enjoyed our stay, and you can't beat the nightly rate!(+plus park fee or annual pass). Brimley was a sweet little park, very green, along side Whitefish Bay. Very picturesque and quite. Many of the Rangers (we found) have you "pick your own site" then come back and tell them, rather than they pick for you. The park's aren't, for the most part, to full, especially during the week days, so you have quite a selection, which is a good thing, because with so many trees, it's better for you to do the choosing! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is right on Whitefish Bay in Brimley Michigan. For a state park, the campsite sizes are any where from big to HUGE. You just have to know what sites to get. There are plenty of shade trees. With the campground right on the lake, a strong North West wind blows off the lake and the site along the lake tend to be breezy (anchor your awning). The number of restrooms for the size of the campground is inadequate. The restrooms are also old. The State of Michigan had a program a few years back where they were building new restrooms at state parks and Brimley was not one of them. Overall, it is a nice place to stay a few days as a base camp. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice clean park with lots to do. The park is situated nicely on lake and canal. Great views from many sites. There is a Burger King right outside the park which is a nice option. On the other side of the park entrance is a go kart place. We travel with a small child so it is nice to have options when sitting around the camp fire starts to lose its appeal. We camped here last summer with three groups - tons of room on an average site for our 5th wheel, tent and two vehicles. Variety of site types, lots of green for shade and some with sun if that's what you're looking for. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Used this CG as a home base to visit the Shipwreck Museum, Tahquamenon Falls, Mackinac Island, Soo Locks, and more all within an hour. CG was very clean and the staff was pleasant and informed. Sites closest to water are the windiest and coldest but offer the best view. Sites along woods are not any more buggy. A slide was the only playground equipment. Roads were paved and great for bike riding. Bathrooms were older but very clean. Just enough trees to be rustic but spaced enough for the MHs around us to use satellite. We plan on staying here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice state park right on Lake Superior. When we stayed a cold front had just come through, and the wind really howled off the lake, so weather should be a consideration for your visit. Shower house and bathrooms are very nice, individual showers kept very clean. All paved streets, nice long beach to walk on. Lots of variety on campsites, the website is very descriptive on size and layout. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
You take your chances with northern parks in April. We had our pick of sites. NOBODY else was there. QUIET. Water had not been turned on yet so we had to fill at the office faucet. No biggie. A good portion of the bay was still covered with ice. Very pretty CG located far enough from any built up area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We did not make a reservation since this is during the off-season. There were many sites available, including sites for big rigs. When reservations are made through Michigan DNR, there is an $8.00 reservation fee. We did not visit the bathroom facilities. We stumbled into a "1/2 price for one night coupon" in MARVAC'S RV & Campsite 2007 travel magazine, located at Michigan's Welcome Centers. The discount is good at several state parks. Very nice park, friendly staff and great camp hosts. If this park had full hookups, it would be a "10". We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice park with great views of the lake. The sites are large and there are great trails in the woods for short walks. Be careful of the site in the middle as the fire pits make you become close friends with your neighbors. This park is great for groups to go and make a circle around a campfire. I would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground has mixed sites. Some very large, for big RV's and some are small to accommodate tenters. But all are grass, no gravel. The park is clean. The staff is friendly. And you are only a few miles from Sault Michigan. The town of Bay Mills is nearby with two nice casinos. The park gets a little bit of wind off Lake Superior to help cool you on warmer days. And the last glimpse of the freighters as they head out for the big water is spectacular. Enjoy this part of Michigan. I did. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
