11 RV Parks near Bergland, Michigan
Jul 2012 - $15.00
This is a nice parks with lots of trees and grass. Lots of seasonal campers permanently here for the summer, but still about 10 sites available. Electric only -shared by 2 sites, no water, no dump station. $15 for non county residents. The sites are VERY wide and since you share a hookup the stretch is very long. You have 40-50 feet between some sites. There is a lake and boat access. Very nice, we would come back. The state park is just down the road so maybe that's where you use the dump? Outhouses scattered around the park for use. - catrst

Price above does not include park pass which is extra. Park has spacious spots and a number of them are lakefront. Park was quiet though we were there in the off season. Nice little beach and boat ramp. Beautiful area and the lake is gorgeous. There are walking trails though they need some attention. Turned around when a boardwalk installed over a wet area was found to have broken, rotted boards. - carol5249

Got one of the 3 pull throughs. Need a long electric cord 50'. No water hook up. Very nice and clean. Right next to lake. We did not have reservations and got there at 4 on a Saturday while the office was still open. This is Michigan, so if you are out of state they charge you a $9/day fee. Or you can buy a season pass for $31. Pays for itself if you stay more than 3 nights. Also if you have a motorhome, Michigan charges you for you toad.
Overall a very nice park. Nice beach. Level sites. But sites not paved Some have gravel. - Magnum34

This place is a 8 on our campground scale. Nice place, big wide sites with 30 amp hookups. Great views, big, safe fire rings and super friendly staff. Rustic-style state park. On the bad side: bring your extension cords. Sites share the power poles and the sites are not uniform, some are really far from where you can park. Our stock power cable was about 6 feet short. I tried maneuvering around, nosing in instead of backing in, angling, etc, and there was just no way to make it reach. If we were in a trailer or pop-up or something I think we could have gotten ourselves a little closer, but not in a motor home. Not a big deal. I just adapted it down to 110 and used my standard extension cord. We just had to watch the AC/Microwave use. Just be aware. Overall, great place. Lots to do near by. Just a few minute from lake superior. There's a little beach in the campground and a boat launch if you want to use it. Kayaks and canoes can easily launch right from your site. I'm pretty sure they allow that. Enjoy. - Brian Holmes

My family and I spent a weekend here just for fun. It wasn't much fun. The rules are strict and the host had problems. You get all sun all day and the beach is only one foot wide. The only good thing was the long fishing dock. Do not come here!!! - Yooperboy

I love this place. The flies were out and about, but we still had a great time. The camp hosts were great, they serve free coffee and hot chocolate from 730-10 everyday. plenty of good sights in the area (waterfalls,hiking). - Bob806

Stayed on site 11 which was on the rocky shore of Lake Superior and had vegetation separating the campsite from lake with a little trail to the water. The rock is big flat sheets you can walk and lay on but it can be sharp and slippery. It was beautiful to sit on them and watch the sunrise. Campground was packed every night of the week but never was loud. Campsites were all decent, small and no privacy, though, but still loved it! Bring long extension cords cause the electric boxes are oddly placed. No sewer hook up at the campsites but they have water fill and dump at the park entrance. We have a 21 ft hybrid camper that fit nice on site 11. They had the bathroom and shower buildings tore down when we were there but they had those rentable RV type bathrooms set up which I was told were nice. We used our camper plumbing sparingly to last 5 days. Lake Superior is amazing--crystal clear, and it was a surprisingly comfortable temp for swimming. Our favorite activity was the beach! The stars were unbelievable. Skies so clear! I loved being next to the shore and hearing the waves as we fell asleep. The flies were horrible at times, though. Definitely didn't want to sit at the campsite during the day or we would get attacked. At night and in the morning we had no bug problems. Pack fly swatters, and a screen tent is almost a must.
The Porkies are a beautiful place anyone that appreciates nature must see. - cnacamper

If you are fortunate enough to get a site on Lake Superior, this is a great place to camp. We were on site 25 which was the best for a larger rig, but we had to reserve it 6 months to the day ahead of time. There are only about 6 of these prime lakeside sites so you have to book them early for summer weekends. We loved it and spent hours enjoying our rock waterfront and swimming in Lake Superior. The sun doesn't set over the water but you still get a beautiful sky. And we also were treated to a meteor shower and Northern Lights!
The majority of the sites don't even have a view of the lake as they are on the other side of a tree line. They are currently putting in a new shower building which will be very nice. However, they tore the old one down and brought in 2 trailers with 5 toilet/shower combo rooms to replace it. This was just not enough for 400+ campers and the poor park workers were struggling to keep them clean. Most of the time, they weren't too good so we were happy to use the bathroom in the camper. Of course, without water and sewer hookups, we had to haul water and conserve.
I would definitely come back especially if we could camp lakeside again. - MazoCak

Great place for an overnight. No way to reserve but it was 80% empty when we got there. Easy in and out. Honor system payment by cash or check put in collection box. Quiet. Plenty of room to walk dog. Verizon hotspot and phone worked well. - all4pets

No frills, but quiet with very long and very level sites. We used this as base for day trip to Houghton and Copper Harbor. Can walk to grocery store. Would highly suggest doing laundry prior to coming. Only laundromat in town is very dirty with many broken machines. Not much to the town, but the campground worked great for what we needed. - tillie

Nice sites. Some are large while some are a little tight. Nice clean bathrooms. Sites with sewer have a concrete pad, rest are dirt or grass. We stayed on site 47 which is water and electric. This is a great place for overnight as you are passing through the area. - Traveling Fool

We got a lovely pull-thru with double width for a single campsite rate since we have a 45' with a toad....didn't ask for that, it was offered and we happily accepted. View is facing the lake and it's lovely. Staff very helpful with directions since the GPS coordinates from their website put us in the woods 30 miles east of the campground. They now have wi-fi. - monamonaco

We were just looking for an overnight and saw this place. Dropped in and got a full service site--water, electric, sewer, and it was pull-through. Full cement pad although the water and electric are on one side and the sewer on the other at the rear. We decided not to connect sewer and use their dump station in the morning so we could view the lake. Great place. Quick service easy access and good overall park. - Xenamax

Family owned and operated. Owners live on site and are very friendly and helpful. Sites are reasonably level, considering you are in very hilly country near the base of the Porcupine Mountains. Sites are large and are grass on hard packed sand and adequately support the weight of big rigs. Some sites have full services, but most are water and electric. Dump station easily accessible to big rigs. Nice place to stay while going to the Porkies and other scenic places in the area. Our RV is 40' long. We would return. - Biker2

Agree with previous reviews. What you don't know until you get here, is that using your A/C will cost you an extra $3.50 per day and using the cable TV will also cost you another $3.50 per day. There is no Wi-Fi and I doubt there ever will be. Bathrooms are outdated but appeared clean. Laundry room has 2 washers and one dryer. Interior roads are skinny and rough in spots. Not bad for one night if you don't care about A/C, cable TV or Wi-Fi. - lburas

I almost didn't recognize this park based on the previous review. While there are some long pull-throughs in the front section of the park, these sites are only W&E and do not have cable. I had to change the facilities listing above to reflect the fact that there are sewer hook-ups at this park. Most sites are in the trees, are FHU with 70+ channel cable TV, and are a both back-in and pull-thruoughs. We had one of these sites. We rejected the first site assigned due to poor utility placement (only the sewer was on the left side and we would have needed extensions to reach the electric, cable, and water on the right side). This type of problem exists for most of the FHU sites - the utilities are all over the place. Additionally, most of these sites appear to be very unlevel. The park only had about 10 (maybe 5 of which were seasonal/extended stay) of 50 sites rented on a Saturday in mid-August. The bathrooms were inadequate (one stall and one shower for each sex) and dirty. I was also not impressed by the owner as the previous reviewer was. This is one of those parks that was OK 20 years ago but needs some new ownership with a willingness to spend enough to bring the park into the 21st century. Next time I'll drive a little farther. - Jerry S

We stayed there for 5 nights. The grounds were spacious and well kept.
The bathrooms were dirty. Floors had not been cleaned in a long time and were not cleaned while we were there. Showers also not cleaned. I would not stay there again. - arkansas_jeannie

These folk were vague on the phone and pleasant but vague in person. The very minimum was done to maintain the park. Lawn was mowed, but areas around posts and rocks hadn't been trimmed all season. Downed branches from storms past were cleaned up, and piled in the middle of the tenting area, which now had a few seasons of weeds growing around them, and there were assorted abandoned vehicles and machinery at the far edges of the park. Some of the sites were too narrow for slide outs, although very long. It was hit or miss, basically, but park was not full, so there was choice. Electricity and water were fine. One permanent trailer was a bit sketchy looking. So basically, it was fine for a few days, but glad we were not staying longer. - Sheryl E

Nice, basic campground. Sites are grass, moderately level; plenty long for 40' coach and tow. But the fire ring and picnic table are at end of site (not enough room next to RV). Price a bit high for no amenities. - Liv2RV

We stayed for an overnight and were pleasantly surprised. The sites are mostly large and separated by trees. We could see Lake Superior out our back window. There are trails to and along the river to view several waterfalls. We would definitely come here again. - dewwood

Black River is run under the Ottawa national forest. This means there is rustic camping with no hook ups. But this NFC has a sewer dump station and water fill ups in the front of the campground and flush toilets. The spots are separated with woods so you get some privacy. The campground is along L. Superior. There are about 4 lakeside spots. About a 1/2 mile west is Black River Harbor with a picnic area, a beach for swimming, a boat landing and long/short term boat parking. It is 15 miles away from Bessemer on City RD 513. Just turn at the stoplight in Bessemer.l - Yooperboy

As others have said, this is a gem of a campground. Township run, but do not let that deter you. It is by far nicer than many private campgrounds where we have stayed. And the price is unbeatable. We had a spot parallel to Lake Superior. The views were amazing! We stayed 5 nights and I wished I could stay more.
We had site 30 and it was a little frightening pulling in with the soft sand, but my truck has 4 wheel drive. Getting out was a little harder, since a class A decided to pull in next to us and crowded the side closest to where i had to pull out.
There are similarly nice lakefront sites in the "new" section but they are often full. - Goin 4 Broke

We have stayed here before and keep coming back - there is nothing like camping right on the shore of Lake Superior, listening to the waves and watching the sun set over the water. Brought family members here for their first visit and planned to stay two days. They loved it so much we just stayed here the whole week. There are times when magic happens and you get to see the northern lights shimmering over Lake Superior. Stayed up late one night and saw them - what a wonderous sight! They have made improvements here over the past several years, adding new bathhouse, more camping spots and a playground. These are water and electric only sites. Very nice park!! - Nautical Wheelers

Did not stay on lake front (too windy)but we were able to see lake from our pit fire. Campground staff was very helpful they even called restaurant to find out if they had grilled fish besides deep fried for us. And Roxey's did. Campsite was fine. We noticed that their playground was very nice, they even had two wheelchair swings--one for a child and another one for adult. Seldom see that offering. They have four disc golf baskets. Wifi worked great. Beach area access was right there and enjoyed watching the sun set both nights. We forgot our flashlight but walk way to rest room/ shower building was well lit. The only very tiny thing wrong was that the outside office building does not light up their directions well for late comers. - Wi Gal
