This was our third year staying at this campground. The location is fantastic, right on Lake Superior with a very nice strip of sandy beach. The park has two sections. The older one is made up of grassy fields with power poles, water stand pipes, picnic tables and fire rings throughout. You just pull in where you like and hook up. There is a restroom and shower house serving this section. The newer part has paved or gravel back-in sites, many of which are directly on the lake, and a more modern bathroom facility. While the setting is very pleasing, the facilities continue to decline each year. The restroom/showers in the older section are nasty and grungy. They need to be pressure washed and disinfected. Large patches of loose tile, insects and spider webs were everywhere. The trash containers were often full. "Out of order" signs were displayed on several toilet stalls. Mold/scum/crud was on the shower walls and floors. The bathrooms in the new facility are better but the showers, though larger, are just as dirty. The Wi-Fi didn't work last year and didn't work this year either. The answer we were given was the same: it works if you sit on the swings in the playground or the tables outside the bathroom. Many of the RV sites as well as the paths to the beach are infested with poison ivy. This park clearly lacks maintenance. We won't be back and that's a shame because the location really is very nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One of the prettiest sites we have ever camped at! I would have given it a 10 but if you get the full hookup sites on the lake you have to back in if your in a motorhome (due to hookup location) so you can't see out the front of your vehicle. BUT you are right on the water with a camp fire ring, a beautiful beach to walk on with lots of pretty rocks and some of the most beautiful sunsets! Really enjoyed it! Be sure to stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is on RT 28 the busy hwy will keep you in the park for activities like bikes and walking to town. Town is a few miles to the east and by car it is great as well as Christmas which is short on stores and long on finding something here except the Casino. There were dogs everywhere when the locals come to the office to chat and they come with many dogs. Now I am a dog owner myself but putting my dog on the ground was not a option since the dogs were loose and my little 5 pound mutt is afraid of other dogs. Make sure that you meter check the AMP's coming into your RV so that you do not burn out the appliances. Nice views of the Lake but if you want a site ON the lake call early. They are gone by January 30th of the season year We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our first RV experience after years of tent camping. Large sites and a stone's throw from Lake Superior, with beautiful sunsets. Was not camping with kids but saw that playground and horse shoe ring needs to be replaced. Close to town. The restrooms were OK but little ventilation in showers. We needed a longer hose to attach water so office let us borrow one which was nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Location location location The campground is right on a portion of Lake Superior's sandy beach. Our view of the lake was some what obscured by the campers on the lakefront. Sites are grass, gravel, and sand from the beach. Parking location and direction within your site is at your discretion, so we angled our trailer to best suit our windows and the beach. Great benefit for us that dogs on 6 foot leashes are on the beach, we enjoyed walking in he water together. The campground was close to our kayaking day trip along Pictured Rocks. The campground is on the highway, but noise at night was minimal, and could not be heard on the beach at all. No campfires. Close to town for groceries and gas and yummy Muldoon's Pasties Shop but not too close. We will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place was awful! All three toilets in one men's room were clogged and overflowing. Men’s showers had only ice-cold water. There was a long wait for both men’s and women’s showers because there aren’t enough of them for the number of campsites. The women’s showers are old and dirty. This facility sits right next to a noisy highway with high-speed traffic. The campers 10 feet from us built a bonfire from lumber they’d brought with them and strong winds blew the nasty, choking smoke right into our rig. It felt like camping in a burn barrel. Flames were still leaping high well past 10 p.m. Other campers built huge fires too (made possible by the campsites’ extra-tall metal fire rings), and as the night went on, swirling winds brought their smoke to us as well. Lemme outta here! We left after that first awful night, even though we’d prepaid for three nights. Later, I noticed that the camp’s official name is City of Munising Tourist Park Campground. You mean to tell me the city owns this dump? Shame on them! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had such a good time while staying here that I hate to downgrade the CG. First, our site was spacious and clean. There is a lovely view of Lake Superior and good access to a nice beach. It is super convenient to all of the many attractions around Munising and the staff were friendly and helpful. The downside? It is mostly a grassy field with some shaded tent sites along the lake. The electric hookups are shared by several RV's and clustered together in the middle of the field. Even though we had a huge site, the MH behind us was only three feet away and two others were literally within spitting distance. There was a large group of teenagers attending a camp who were in 20 or so tents nearby. This group also had a MH, a chuck wagon, and a dining tent set up. They were super youngsters but it was just too much population for the restrooms and showers. There were lines most of time and frequent breakdowns in the facilities. Speaking of the facilities, they were very dated and "rustic." The CG needs lots of TLC but we liked the convenient location and everything quieted down at 10 p.m. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed in the East, old, end of the campground. These sites are huge. All three of us needed to park way into the sites so cords and hoses could reach the utilities. Fire pits are located well and away from normal trailer parking spaces. Wood was available from the office and they loaned a wheelbarrow to guests. Management of the park were very friendly and accommodated a late cancellation due to illness of one of our party of four. The park has a nice beach, clean restrooms, but only one dump station which ends up giving a backup when leaving. We were able to watch and not get caught in the backup. Many waterfalls, Picture Rocks National Lakeshore, Grand Island, and the Lake Superior shoreline provided plenty to do in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is right on Lake Superior. The sites are large and the park is easy to navigate. We had site #50 which had some road noise but was huge. They allow some campers to tent on RV sites but we didn't mind because everyone was very courteous and well behaved. The dump station is easy to get to but the showers leave a lot to be desired. Overall we liked this campground and would return when in this area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice location right on the lake. We came in with no reservations, but were able to get a site in the overflow area. There are 3 sites with 30 amp electric and water, plus a couple more with 20 amps. These sites are first come, first served, so it worked out great for us. We did have some low voltage issues as we were here during a heat wave. We ended up plugging into a 20 amp outlet at the bath house which ended the low voltage problem. The bath house was also a Wi-Fi hotspot. We were next to the newer bath house that looked very clean. Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. TV via batwing was so, so. But we did have a couple of stations most of the time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is in a great location on the shores of Lake Superior with a few sites backing up to the lake. It has spacious lots, but sites for tent camping and RVs are mixed together. It must be wonderful during the week, but we were here on a Saturday night and it was packed. Folks were a little noisy early in the evening, but at nightfall things quieted down. We did not use the bathrooms. The toilet block needs renovation and the showers were few. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The large park is easy to locate and easy to maneuver around the campground. The attendant was friendly and readily answered questions about the area. The camp sites are gravel and some are grass. We had a level gravel site with sewer, water and 50 amp electric. The internet access was good not great but readily functional. There are shady sites and the view of Lake Superior was good. I would stay there again when in the that area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has two distinct sections which are roughly divided by the main access road. To the left are the sites preferred by big rigs and to the right you'll find smaller units and tents. This appears to be the older section of the park. The bath house and showers in this older portion are nasty and could do with a serious pressure washing and renovation. The bath house in the newer section is more modern and acceptably clean. Wi-Fi is free and reliable. We camped in the older part which is made up of large grassy areas with standpipes and electrical hookups. It doesn't have specific sites, you just pull up to the utilities and connect. Each utility island serves four units. The campground has a nice beach for walking. It's a pet friendly place and also host to numerous geese. Overall, it was pretty clean and we'll stay there again. It's a good base camp for exploring the many sights that part of the UP has to offer. Grocery stores and laundromats are in nearby Munising and be sure to check out the Falling Rock Cafe. Once the older shower facilities are updated this CG would qualify for a rating of 10. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park. Not all sites have sewer or are on the water, but all the sites are great with a great view of Lake Superior. There is a lot of things to do in the area, biking, hiking, kayaking, boating. We had planned to just stay there a couple weeks and ended up staying for 5 weeks. However, there are no weekly or monthly rates. The staff is very nice. Very beautiful sunsets, too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I think your opinion of this campground would depend on which site you are assigned. We were fortunate to be in a full hook-up site, overlooking the lake. This site would be pictured on RV sales brochures. Sites level. Interior roads good. No laundry facility. Decent Wi-Fi. No cable. Local TV two stations. Satellite coverage dependent on site location due to trees. Men's bathroom had motion sensor lights which was a slight issue if you took a few minutes to complete your transaction as they could not be activated while sitting in a stall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our site, and those around it, was huge but the utility layout still had me parked way to one side so my power could reach. I didn't care, as the view out my front window was great. All sites seemed level. I will plan a longer stay next time! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very busy park, we stayed in an electric and water only the first two nights at $23 night and then full hookups with 50amp the last two nights. Neither site we had was on the lake but we still had nice views. Park staff was nice and it was very campground like which we enjoy. We don't use the restrooms so no comment on that. If we had any complaint it would be the campfires. The smoke is always drifting in to the motorhome but then again those who have fires have a right to them so no complaints. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a typical MI city municipal campground: basic amenities situated in a great place at an incredible price! I will forgo the pool and Wi-Fi and other items to be able to camp in an RV park on Lake Superior for $23/night! WOW, what a deal! The sites are fairly level; most are widely spaced. There is little shade available. The few non-tent sites on the lake go fast...reserve early or hope for a cancellation. Even if you are not camped on the lake, you will probably be able to see it. The campground is pretty close to town. The smoked whitefish is very good! I would stay away from Sydney's restaurant...the food is "OK" and the prices fairly high. I couldn't believe they were out of perch and were substituting haddock! So, I got the whitefish instead; wish I would have just stuck with soup and salad bar. A visit to Seney National Wildlife Refuge is a must. As is a trip to Whitefish Point and the Shipwreck Museum. I had previously done the Pictured Rocks Boat tour, so I opted for seeing the National Park via trails instead of via boat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is daily rate for 30 amp electric and water, back-in site. 20 and 30 amp electric outlets, water pressure was high, dump station in the park. As others have mentioned there is an odd layout to the park utilities, and depending on the site, it may require an extra electric cord and water hose. We saw a number of people who had to park in a certain spot on their site so their cord and hose would reach, if you carry an extension cord and extra water hose it shouldn't be a problem. Trees along the lakefront sites, but sites to the rear are open. Good satellite reception as well as a strong Verizon signal with 3G. A great park to use as a base when seeing the area. Good value for the money and would definitely stay here again if our travels bring us back to the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park as you are near Lake Superior. Although only a hand full of full hookups the view is worth camping. We have 3 dogs who just love walking on the beach. You are near the town of Munising and a Casino. We stay every year with about 8 other fifth wheels and have a great time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A little too pet friendly, leash rule was not enforced nor were any other rules. Never saw anyone patrolling the park. If we hadn't had decent neighbors this could have been a problem. Sites vary in size from huge to crowded. No marked boundaries. Always full while we were there. Water and elec were about 75 feet apart on our site and on wrong side of trailer. 20 amp and 50 amp only, no 30 amp so bring an adapter if you need one. Area is nice. Saw everything we needed to see probably wouldn't go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The best sites, on the shore of Superior, need to be reserved in advance. Some of the other sites are not clearly marked and making the hookups reach is a challenge. The view makes it worth the inconvenience. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This city run campground is on the shore of Lake Superior. Our back-in full hook up site put the tail of the trailer over the dunes on the lake shore. The view out the big rear window was spectacular. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed two nights here. We will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This Munising city campground overlooks Lake Superior and Grand Island. The sites are gravel with grass between and includes good Wi-Fi, fire pits, views, dog walking areas and picnic tables. It is one mile past the Holiday Inn Express on M28 outside of Munising heading west toward Marquette. The Holiday Inn Express showed up as a destination on our Garmin GPS: the campground doesn’t. We encountered some bad (40 mph winds and rain) weather the night before our scheduled departure and the park manager allowed us to extend another day rather than push through this “stuff” on the highway. This enabled us to enjoy the Pictured Rocks boat tour and a round of golf at the Pictured Rocks golf course. This is not a destination park (no in park activities) but Munising offers a few restaurants such as Muldoon’s: a roadside Pasty shop that was voted #1 in the UP and the Golden Heart (Chinese) in town plus the boat tours and golf. Our Verizon cell was very strong and if the park could afford it, cable TV connections might be helpful. We have a roof top satellite dish and our site allowed us a HD connection. Some sites might not work for someone with our setup. The campground, especially on weekends, is quite popular so call ahead or risk being told we’re full. We would definitely return if in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly staff, but I was a little disappointed based on other reviewer's comments. We changed to a pull through due to the weather. The site we were assigned was the only one available and we had to disconnect our auto to get level. This part of the park is new and has 50 amps. But they should have graded the area better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this park. It is right on Lake Superior which affords fantastic views and a great place to walk. The staff was awesome. Gave us good pointers for sightseeing and also went out of his way to contact a garage where we could have our oil changed. This is a great campground to use as a base for Pictured Rocks National Seashore. The streets in the park were concrete or gravel. The sites were gravel, fairly level and were of a comfortable size. The Wi-Fi was the best I have seen in quite awhile. There is no cable TV and we could not get any local TV stations. However, our satellite worked fine. We had superb cell phone service with Verizon. Since it is close to the highway there is a bit of road noise, but not enough to be a problem. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is very convenient and pretty campground located just west of the town of Munising. Our site was only 50' from Lake Superior. Sites can accommodate a large rig. We would definitely stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were just going to stay here two nights but the park was so nice we stayed three. We were lucky enough to get a waterfront site #72 in the full hookup section. The 50 amp on the pedestal was not grounded which forced us to use 30 amp, which wasn't a problem. This park is absolutely GREAT! Walks on the beach which was right out our door and the area is beautiful. I highly recommend this park as a stop on your way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were in site #5 right on the water. Hookups are situated for backing into site, but we pulled in forward because of the beautiful view. This required electrical extension cord, and dogbone to convert from 50 amp plug to 30 amp plug. No sewer at this price level, but there is a dump station. Long water hose was also needed. Sites are very big compared to full hookup sites, most being quite level and within range of jacks on our motorhome. Office staff very friendly. Over the air TV reception almost non existent. Only PBS came in. A lot of the sites are grassy. Swings and slide for children. Some road noise but not a problem. Perhaps in the summer there would be more. We used this as a place to stay to take the Pictured Rocks scenic cruise which was definitely worth it. We certainly would return if in the area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean park with great view of lake. Bring extra long water hose for some campsites.The new restroom is very clean. The older one needs to be remodeled, cleaned and upgraded. We stayed here on our way up to Copper Harbor. Would stay again for overnight stays. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A beautiful spot on Lake Superior. We had a site in the newer section with sewer and 50 amp service. The site we had, #76, was right on the beach with a great view of the lake and Grand Island. It might be a little crowded in the summer, but this time of year it is outstanding. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We expected to stay here a couple of days and then move on. But we were lucky enough to get a lakefront site just 20 steps from the water. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the amenities here are few but the experience of camping on Lake Superior more than makes up for what is lacking. We were told when checking in that they do not take reservations after Labor Day and to choose whatever was available. A worker would show up at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. more or less. An older restroom by the lake needed cleaning/updating. A newer one with a pavilion was clean. We ended up staying seven nights and plan to return next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The lack of amenities at this park, is overcome by the magnificent views of the lake. Wi-Fi is erratic, and only worked 50% of the time. There is a newer shower building, but we were closer to the older one, that was in need of upgrades. Sites were ok size, but the larger ones with sewer were full, but we dumped on the way out, and the dump station was fairly convenient. Good location for Munising, and Pictured Rocks. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were here for four nights. The first two nights were near the very busy highway and cost $20. The next two nights were at a lakeside site and cost $25 per night. The lakeside location was much quieter. This is a beautifully situation park however lacks sewer connections and some sites are without any utilities. There are lots of tent sites both with and without utilities. There is a very long albeit narrow sandy beach you can walk upon at any time of day. There is a pump station. The restrooms were relatively clean given that sand was being tracked in constantly by heavy traffic. The older restroom/shower facility was closest to the beach and had very heavy use. It did however have four locked door unisex shower rooms which seemed to be in use constantly by the teenagers camping in tents. There is a newer facility by the highway that has fewer number of toilets and showers and uses only shower curtains. The staff cleans and mops daily but can't make headway. Its best to come here in a self contained unit if that type thing is important to you. There are lots of fire rings in use here. The Wi-Fi signal is excellent if you are fairly near to the office area because they were having technical difficulties while we were there. Just ask the manager. That said, we'd definitely come back here as its very scenic, has great sunsets over the lake and is a great base to tour this section of Michigan. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is for overflow 30amps and water. Full hookup sites are taken by seasonal campers. Power voltage was low, had our power management system kick out once due to low voltage. Regular sites were available, but in trees for $25 night. Opted for same connections w/o trees for less $, so all satellite systems would work. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Playground bored the kids. Weather was uncooperateive during our stay but they let us leave early with refund. Access to ORV trails but they hadn't been used in awhile and very narrow. Large sites, great view if it weren't for the fog. Lots of traffic --would have kept us up all night if we weren't already used to it. Construction did wake us up, however. An OK stay but better for those just passing through and need to be put up for a night. Clean, hot showers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a w/e hookup which was a pullthrough. No problem getting the satellite service. The angle seemed to be lower then DirctTV said, but got a 90 percent signal. Unable to get any local TV. Not a bad view of the lake. We were in a center site, the ones backing to the lake were good views and higher cost. Whoever set up the water and electric never owned or stayed in an RV. Need at least 35' of hose and an extension for the electric. Very poor planning. Free WiFi but no cable TV. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The views, site size, and managers were all great. Be wary of "satellite friendly" sites - very questionable if that's important to you. The hook-up was strange with water and electric far apart. Wouldn't have worked for us if we didn't have an extension cord. But the site was beautiful and we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have NEVER been to a CG with a cleaner, nicer bathroom, and probably will never find one. Everything was/looked brand new and was immaculate! Owners couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Very convenient to shopping, RV store, movie theater, bank, fast food. Layout was spacious, landscaping, while new, was nice. If every CG was this nice and this reasonably priced, why own a home. Live in a CG! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice city park with adequate facilities except for having no sewers but that seems pretty common in this area. We were fortunate and were placed on a newly renovated site with full paving that would normally be saved for handicapped folks. The views out over the lake were great and we saw some neat sunsets. We would definitely visit this park again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park that accommodated our needs for 3 days. It was very convenient to town and shopping and, access to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Most of the sites are grass with 30 amp electric and water hookups. Recent improvements however added 50 amp service; and our site did have a level asphalt drive. Also Wi-Fi is up and running. Beautiful view of Lake Superior and Grand Island for those close to the water. Good sand beach to walk on but it's narrow, and the swimming area has small pebbles. We did not use or rate bathrooms/showers. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We live in the UP, but this is one of our favorite parks in the US! The park is right on the lake, so bring a sweater because the evenings can be chilly. The sites are level, the showers and bathrooms are nice, and it's close to town (and the best Pasties in the UP - Muldoons! -sorry grandma!) There are some great ATV trails just across the highway that you can spend hours and hours on. This will continue to be a summer destination for us! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our site backed up right to the beach. The view of Lake Superior was incredible. The sites were wide. The bathroom closest to our site was clean, but showing its age. The other bathroom, located across the campground, was new. Pictures Rocks was also beautiful. The water reminded me of the Caribbean without the heat. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just stayed for an overnight, but really enjoyed this City Park gem at only $20. It was much quieter than most other campgrounds despite its proximity to M28. We were in Site 25 with a view past a vacant lake front site to lovely Lake Superior. We had to do a little moving around to get our fixed roof Dish to work , but the trees are sparse here so we were able to get it. The 50 amp worked fine, but utilities are shared so if the other rig is using the 50 you'll be stuck with the 30 which others have reported can be iffy. The water hookup required an extension. Hosts were friendly and helpful. It's about a 10 minute drive into Munising for the famous boat tours and restaurants. The Dogpatch was a fun place to eat. Negatives include the unpaved grassy or gravel sites can get muddy and/or wet; no sewer hookup (but there is a dump); 30 amp problems & hookup placements as mentioned by others; no Wi-Fi; and judging by the crowds after Labor Day, it probably fills much of the time in peak season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We agree with the other comments, but were close to the road and did find the road noise objectionable. DirecTV reception is good. Verizon is extended service and National Access for data card. The local Telco is Alltel which I understand was just bought by Verizon, so service may improve. We had 30amp service and found the voltage was low, 108vac with 1200w load around supper time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Electric and water hookups are not in the normal placement on many sites; bring long hoses and cords. The showers were very nice. The park is close to M-28, but the road noise was not too bad. The park is right on Lake Superior, and offers beautiful views and is very close to Munising and the Pictured Rocks area. We stayed overnight and would stay here again for longer than one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Perhaps the nicest campground have stayed in. Sites are roomy and most have shade. Views of Munsing Bay and Grand Island are awesome. Miles of sandy beach in which to explore. Small campstore did not have many supplies needed for extended stay camping so be prepared to go into Munsing to shop, or bring all that you need for your stay with you. Centrally located to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore as well as other central UP attractions. Very clean and staff is very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I give this campground a 7 which may be generous, but the location and view of the lake is quite lovely. The hookups are definitely a problem, but knowing this from reading other reviews helped us. Definitely go to the site before setting up. The staff gave us a site that we would not have been able to get all of our hookups. Also make sure the ground is firm. Our RV is big and heavy and we would have had problems in some of the sites. We would stop here again knowing the perimeters. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is located right on Lake Superior with some beautiful views. Sites are large and either gravel or grass. Most appeared to be fairly level. Water and electric located at opposite ends of site requiring extension cord and hose? If not for the view this would be considered an overnight park only. Staff was friendly and polite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very satisfied with our accommodation here. We found the washroom facilities were clean and adequate. The showers were pricey at $1 but lots of hot water. A beautiful sand beach with a great view towards Grand Island. The sites were relatively level and spacious with many shaded sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had weak electric 108 volts on 30 amp without a load on the service. We stayed here for two nights, but doubt if we would stay here again unless it was an emergency stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We (two adults) spent month in UP and liked this campground a lot except for the restroom & shower facilities. They were awful. Need a bunch of work. Otherwise nice big sites, pretty beach, close to attractions, we would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had site #3, a really nice, lumpy but good sized lakefront site with 50 amp service and water (we did need extra hose to reach the water even though we pulled in forward ). Beautiful sunsets and sunrises over the lake at this park with a nice beach. There was some road noise from M-28 but we didn't notice it much with the doors and windows shut (and when the wind was howling). Bathhouses were not very close to us so we did not use them. They were older but had private, individual showers that we like. Good base camp for seeing Pictured Rocks Natl Lakeshore. We're new to pasties so we don't have anything to compare with but we really liked the pasties at Muldoon's down the road from the CG. Very nice city park with great lake access and views that's a real value at $20 a night for 50 amp electric and water at the site with no expensive reservation and motor vehicle permit fees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice view of Lake Superior, but closer to the highway and louder than I would have liked. Was good for 1 night stay. Shared the campground with 3 large Prevost/Bluebird buses, so they can definitely handle the big rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our first trip in our RV. Beautiful location and close to town. We did not travel with children but playground needs updating. Bathrooms clean. Shower water pressure was good but not much ventilation. Needed a longer hose for water so office gave us one to use during our stay. Large sites with plenty of shade. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beware of this place, if in a larger RV or with slides, while 1 or 2 sites may work, it is not big rig (or medium rig) friendly at all. The website says: "A magnificent setting with full modern facilities." Well maybe 30 or 40 years ago, not now. Most sites are electric only (or no electric) and not very level. We were hitting branches on the driveway in, with our 35' MH. There is a water station for filling, no water hookups at site. Verizon had no service here. It was a real short stay for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Beautiful lake. Clean laundry room. New bath house and showers. Warm and clean shower and bathroom. Great place for our dogs. Beautiful trail to hike on. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Stayed here one night late Sept 2012. No one in the office to take our $$ at arrival or the next day. Finally just before we were going to pull out and mail them a check they showed up. Had 4-5 other people approach us with the same problem. All arrived at or before 3pm the day prior. Most of us stayed in the area nearest the highway, as the rear side of the park where all the sites are, are all overgrown with big trees and hard to get a moderate/big rig size unit into. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Please do yourself a favor if you plan on visiting this area. Make advance reservations at another campground. We did not, so we ended up here. $46.00 to park on grass, squeezed in between 2 other motorhomes. Hardly enough room for a slide. The restrooms were filthy. I went right after they were supposedly cleaned, and it was so bad that I turned right around and went out. One of the worst places we have stayed considering the price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
$46/night for a FHU site? OUTRAGEOUS for what you get. Dirt roads (very narrow) dirt uneven sites. Rain turns everything into a mud hole. So many trees you can hardly see the sky. This by far is one of the poorest campgrounds we've ever stayed at. Oh, did I mention that the dumpsters were overflowing on the ground for days?? Remember to take extra water hose and electrical extension as the site connections are reverse of what is normal. Munising City has their own campground on Lake Superior and we will stay there next time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed ten nights. We used the camp for a base to see area. We had a sunny/grassy site in front of office. Sort of semi circle with full hookup. Rest of park is behind the office. There are very wooded/dirt sites back there. Some full hookups in wooded area. Very small laundry area with people waiting at times. As others stated about the kids, we did not see any over the top kid routine. It was just normal stuff. Fair condition pool but cold. Fair condition mini golf. I heard trails do exist way to the back. Train is loud, but only comes by a few times a week. There is a land fill across the road but no real issues with this. Just noted. Dog friendly with no real rules. Wi-Fi good and Verizon signal excellent. We'd stay again. Price was steep for what you get, but it is close to all sites in area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you're looking for a campground that attracts families with kids, then this is the place for you. It does seem to be a great spot to bring a group together, as it provides a lot of play space for kids. So first... the positives of this campground: - The sites are spacious and VERY shaded and mostly cleaned. - Lots of activities for kids - great family vacation spot - The WiFi was actually usable But that's about where the charm ends. Here are the things we disliked about this park: - Even on their website, they obscure their actual address by just listing the street name. When you look the location up on Google, it shows it as waterfront just west of Munising - which seems like a good place to be. And that's why we booked a reservation here after not being able to get into the municipal tourist park which is actually on the water. But search further on their maps, and you see it's actually EAST of Munising, and not at all close to water. - We're kid-free full timers, and family oriented vacation spots are not our ideal location at all. When we arrived, there were tons of kids all over the place. Not pleasant or relaxing for us. If being around lots of kids isn't your thing, don't ever count on getting a chance at the heated pool. And be prepared for lots of sounds of kids playing. - Many of the pull-thru sites are situated so that your front porch and your neighbor's face each other. While there's lots of distance between them, this greatly reduces your feeling of privacy. If we had to stay here again, we'd request one of the back in sites in the back, those seemed to be the most private feeling and away from the pool and playground! - The amenities here are seriously undersized and aged. Only two showers for each gender available, which is hardly enough on a busy weekend where each of the sites has an average of 4 people on them - many of them tent or pop-up campers. The laundry room had 3 working washers and only 2 dryer (1 of which wasn't working all the great, requiring multiple runs to actually dry) - this caused a massive back-up, and had us up to 2am just to work our loads in. It's way too humid and shaded here to line dry. Skip their laundry facility and go to the 24hr one in town instead! - Most of the sites don't have sewer hook-ups (only a few do, they don't publish how many). - Most of the electric hook-ups are just 30A... which is probably ok considering it's so shaded and the weather usually mild. We only had to run a single A/C for a couple hours anyway. But the price point for this place suggest far more! - While the shade provides relief from the sun, it is VERY shaded. So shaded that we had to turn on all our lights during the day just to keep from feeling drab and dark. - There is absolutely nothing in walking distance and you're a bit far from town, despite them heavily advertising the Cherrywood Lodge next-door as an amenity (so you don't have to cook!). The lodge had no sign of life during our prime season weekend stay. - They advertise 400 acres of walking trails. We found none. - This place is seriously overpriced for what it offers. At $40/night, we expect so much more in up kept and quantity of the facilities. The AT&T signal was faint and 2G. There's a usable Verizon 3G signal that can be boosted in if needed. The WiFi, thankfully, was fairly usable. We would actively avoid coming back to this location. And we seriously regret that we pre-paid for 3 nights here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Agree with previous reviews. Only plus was very shady. Quiet after the kids left. Spotty AT&T cellphone service. We paid $47 a night. Was that a weekend rate? I don't know. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The worst campground and big rip off that we ever stayed in. I totally 100% agree with the previous reviewer. We camped in the back area which was more private, but we had no Wi-Fi service and no sewers back there. Campers were pulled in any way they wanted and you were facing someone else door. Interior roads were dirt and very dusty with dirt flying everywhere. It felt like you were in the jungle, love trees but this was too many. No signs in campground that mark campsites in each row. We had family over that was vacationing in area also, it was embarrassing. Stayed 3 nights, could not wait to leave. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We reserved for 1 night and ended staying 3 to have a full day in the park doing laundry and enjoying the pool and one day taking the Pictured Rocks boat tour. We had been here years ago and wanted to make sure we got a site we liked. We were in site 1: one of the handful of open sites in the front of the park. All other sites are heavily wooded as others have noted. If you are not a fan of "parking lot" RV parks and prefer a site that is more "woodsy," this park is for you. I cannot comment on how level these sites are but they did seem quite spacious. I am surprised that no one in recent reviews has mentioned that the number of FHU sites is limited to the 7 in front and maybe a dozen in the wooded main area of the park. There are another 20+ W&E sites, with rest E only or rustic. During our stay, with the park maybe 50% full, there were probably as many tents and popups as RVs. Lots of families and ATV'ers. So, you will find just about every type of RVing/camping customer here during the summer season. The Wi-Fi worked OK for us and the 70+ channel cable TV was good. The laundry and bath/shower facilities are old, but functional and inadequate for a park with so many sites without sewers. We would stay again but some aspects (unpaved roads and dirt sites, for example) of this park might not appeal to some RVers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is lovely. When we first pulled in, we saw an open field right by the road and began to worry. Now I understand it is for folks who want satellite reception or want to be near the bath house, or who just like camping in open areas. We prefer wooded quiet camping, and we got it here! Our site had full hook-ups and is on the far end of the campground (as far away as you can get). There are trees all around, but there is plenty of space for a big rig. Backing in was a breeze and the lot is level enough. Wi-Fi works fine on our computers. We're a little far away for it to work well on our iDevices. AT&T reception is almost non-existent. We would absolutely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects 3 week stay. Staff/Owners were very helpful and knowledgeable. There are 8-10 full hook-up, grassy, level satellite friendly sites in front of the office. These can be noisy due to proximity to M-28 Highway and the railroad across the highway. We moved from front to back after several days. Back area offers assorted sites from tent to full hook up (with some "buddy" sites). All sites are large, private, with mature tree canopy, not satellite friendly, and have fire-ring and picnic table. Cable was excellent with 60+ channels. Back roads and sites are dirt/gravel, some potholes. We had no trouble maneuvering a 42' 5th wheel. Site was fairly level. There was an occasional train whistle. Pet friendly, but no designated areas. ATV trail behind park was pretty, and there was a good dog walk area. Verizon 3G voice and data were excellent. Laundry was small with 3 residential washers and 2 dryers. I used the laundromat in town which had spotless stainless commercial equipment. We did not use Wi-Fi or showers, although showers were clean when I checked. Pool was very clean. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As other reviewers have indicated, if you stay in the back areas (the wooded areas), drive to your proposed site before pulling your RV back into the woods. The turns are tight, roads are narrow and the trees are close to the roads. We stayed in the front area for satellite access so the tight turns of the wooded areas were not an issue for us. The sites in the front area are level, spacious and have good satellite access. Wifi is free but poor. We had poor signal strength and we were a stone's throw from the office (where I assume the wifi server is located). Laundry was reasonably clean and well maintained. There were 3 washers and 2 dryers. A very loud train goes by a couple of times a day but for us it was not a problem. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it. The cable television system is excellent, 67 channels. Be aware that satellite service will not be available in the wooded area in back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground with great shady, mostly level spots. Utilities and cable are good. Would have rated higher except the Wi-Fi was not even usable for most of the stay. Would definitely stay here again if the Wi-Fi improves. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We chose this park over the less-expensive Munising Tourist Park in order to have Wi-Fi and sewer hookups. They accommodated our very early arrival without any additional charges. Nearly all sites are shady, level, and there are a substantial number of pull-thoughs. Our site exceeded the length of our trailer and tow vehicle even after unhooking. Trees and small undergrowth help define your site from your neighbor's. The site we were on was mostly dirt which was dusty when dry and muddy after a rain. There was a storm the first evening we were there which knocked out power for a while and wreaked havoc with the Wi-Fi. Power was restored quickly; the Wi-Fi was out for about 24 hours. The park was clean but could have used some tree/shrub pruning. Office staff was very personable. There was very little in the way of groceries in the store - you'd be better served driving the two miles into town. The pool looks dirty but was not; the high iron content in the VERY refreshing water stains the sides and bottom of the pool. The passing of the trains did not bother us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We enjoyed our stay here with our large back in site (#20). Easy access with a 34 footer. Even much larger would be happy in many of these spots. Wi-Fi was poor here however, probably because of the very thick vegetation and tall trees. Small laundry room. Friendly and helpful staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Mixed feelings about this park. We were near the office at M-28, but it was a long level pull-through. It was open for satellite, with all the trees in the park it was one of the few sites open for satellite. As mentioned before, good utility hookups and the Wi-Fi was pretty good. The highway noise did not bother us but there was a loud train whistle 2-3 times during the week that we heard quite well. Without a reservation we were lucky to get a site and the site was great for satellite but then another big rig pulled in next to us and the sites were at an angle such we were right next to each other. These are the only two sites that are that way, the others have good distance between them. The area is terrific with waterfalls, lighthouses and of course Pictured Rocks. We will be back in the area and would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a long level pull-through in the grassy area across from the office. It was open for satellite, but that was not needed with 70+ very good cable TV stations. We had no problems with 50 amps or Verizon, but WiFi dropped connections a couple times. The front sites do have highway noise, but it didn't keep us awake. There were several big rigs in the treed area in back, but most sites were for smaller units. The staff was pleasant. We didn't use the laundry, and bathrooms were only ok. There are lots of beautiful hikes to take in the area, and Pictured Rocks boat tour is not to miss! Check with the National Park Service in Munising for information and good maps. We would return and get reservations in busy months. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a reservation for two nights. When we arrived they sent us down dirt access roads with trees and brush growing into the roadway. It was impossible to manuever our 40' MH into our assigned site so we went back to the office. On our way out we had to drive through dirt trails with trees protruding into the road as evidenced by a scratch in our clear coat finish. We asked for and were given a site on the front lawn (1 of 7 sites) more suitable for a large RV. When we asked why they didn't offer the more suitable site in the first place, their response was that they didn't know what size rig we had even though they had that information from our reservation and our RV was clearly visible in the drive. They offered no apology for the damage to our MH. This is an older campground more suitable for tents and small RVs. The price was a little steep for a facility that clearly needs to be updated before they advertise as having "perfect sites for large rigs." We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were given a backin slot next to the Highway 28 in the front of the campground. A little noisy but not enough to keep you from sleeping at night. Campground had lots of trees, sand roads and camping spaces, nice pool, cable TV, and friendly employees; but the shower house and bathrooms were always dirty. Other campers left messes everywhere (paper towels on floor, shampoo bottles, soap, dirt in wash basins), wet sand on the floor, water hose in bathhouse was too short to wash the floor before showering, did not see a cleaning schedule. I was in the bathhouse several times during our stay and it was alway dirty. Partly other campers but mostly management not keeping the room clean. It needs more than one cleaning if that is all they clean a day. Would use campground again, but would only use my motorhome bathroom and shower. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After multiple attempts to get a response trying to obtain reservations from the Munising Tourist park, (which was more preferred due to the location on the lakeshore), we finally received a rude reponse from the owners of the Munising Motel who run that park. Came here as an alternative choice, and found people at this park were welcoming and helpful. Park was an odd mix of scattered full hookups, but mostly w/e sites only, with some electric only and rustic sites. Park was very full and packed in when we were here on the weekend, though sites were large with nicely wooded. Bathrooms were very dated and always dirty, with only two rough showers that had people waiting in line to use. Park is 4 miles away from town, on busy M-28 and not close to anything. A bit overpriced compared to the other parks in the area. Though the WiFi and cable TV was appreciated, I could get no signal on my cell phone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a great time camping here for 5 days. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The sites are very woodsy and clean. We really enjoyed our visit in this beautiful area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground offered many amenities. Seems to be only one in UP with cable, Wi-Fi and pool. Our site was nice, overall sites are laid out nicely. Pool was clean, showers were pretty clean. Posted hours of bathroom cleaning not adhered to, was interrupted twice by maintenance while showering. Also, firewood was good price, but it was not seasoned, lots of smoke! Overall, our experience was very good and we would definitely stay here again. Great location! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The people were polite and we were able to find a site the same evening. Unfortunately, the sites were all too close to each other, and there was no grass. The driving access to the sites is very narrow and covered in brush, making it hard to maneuver an RV in. Our site was a pull through with a 5% grade downhill. There was no way of leveling well. The electric was 10 watts and over 60 feet away from the parking site, as was the water hookup. The pool was somewhat dirty with hair and insects floating in it. We couldn't see the lake from where we were, and I doubt there was a view. Too expensive for what they have here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is actually a pretty nice campground. Two drawbacks though. One is that the sites are too close together and the other is that they had 106 campers this evening (but only 97 sites listed!) and all of us got to share two showers per gender. They tried desperately to keep them clean and did a good job but the showers were constantly busy. Another drawback is that many sites were mud as it had rained and there is no grass in many sites. The proprietors are very polite and helpful. The pool was clean and there is s ton of stuff to do to keep the kids busy. The Wi-Fi is slow but its there. The location is great and I would stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The campground was very spacious. The pool was not very well kept. Not clean. otherwise it was a good campground with shade and close to where we wanted to go like pictured rock and many waterfalls in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for eight nights while visiting Munising. Pluses for this campground are spacious sites and easy to maneuver access roads. There are several grassy sites up front but they have no trees and are close to the frontage road which carries lots of traffic. The sights in the back are shaded with trees, but also have no grass so they are muddy and dirty when it rains. All of the back sites have shared hook-ups and some of the sites will require extra electric cord or sewer hose to hook up. The laundry room is in the basement and was unpleasant/damp enough that we elected to use a laundromat in town. The swimming pool was not well kept and was starting to look a tad green while we were there. Given the condition of the laundry room and the pool I thought the $40 rate was a tad high ... that being said there are limited choices in the Munising area that offer full hookup so we would probably stay at this campground again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here at the end of the season and could pick any site we wanted. As it was raining we chose a grass site with few trees there were sites that were fully shaded. The laundry at this park was closed they said due to vandalism. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay at Wandering Wheels and found the staff to be very helpful. We did not have the kids with us on this trip but wished we did due to the kid friendliness of the site. The facilities on the whole were somewhat dated but that wouldn't have been an issue for the kids. Most of the sites were wooded without any grass. Our site seemed level and we had no issues with electric or water. The only issue was that the Wi-Fi seemed to drop sometimes. We would recommend the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice woodsy park w/heated swimming pool. Close to all attractions. We had a back in site but most were pull-thur's. Only complaint was the water pressure in the showers, it was not good at all. Overall a nice place to stay w/kids. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is a nice woodsy campground with great amenities for children, but the cabin was dirty when we arrived. The bathrooms/showers were filthy during our entire stay (5 nights). A little clean-up would make this a much better place to stay. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
A former chain campground: needs some work, potholes in roads, etc. It is situated next to a large ORV use area, so be prepared for the noise. Encountered the Upper Peninsula (UP) bird (mosquito) in expected numbers, and a severe thunderstorm. We would return as it is near a lot of major natural attractions: such as the Pictured Rocks etc., and the beauty of the UP!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wooded campground with mostly shady sites, giving the feel of camping in the woods. There are several pull through sites as well as back in sites. All sites are fairly level and are generously sized. Most sites are divided by trees giving some privacy. The big rig 50 amp sites are in the front, on open grassy sites. The shady sites are basically dirt and gravel, so you will want to use an outside rug or carpet. I only went in the bathrooms a couple times. Both times were just before the scheduled cleaning time, and they were dirty. This may, however, have been in part due to a large group of teens that was staying at the campground on those days. The office staff was always friendly and helpful, both on the phone and in person. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
E10102 Hwy M-28 just East of town. (906) 387-3315. Found the staff to be nice, we were camped close to the entrance and it was very dusty. Interior was dirt and gravel some sites looked very lumpy and unlevel. Lots of trees and campers. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we arrived at this campground, it was closed, and there was a sign on the door that said they opened at 2 p.m. We waited around until 2:30. When the woman who ran the office arrived, she was obviously very put out that people were waiting for her. She was very rude and condescending. We finally located a space, but she was very snappy in giving us instructions of how to get around to it. The campground has a few good pull through spaces in the front, but behind the office, it is dense, and low branches prevail. Okay for a one night stand, but no longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
