11 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

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

Rate reflects park fee, plus Michigan park pass, plus day use pass. Very nice, huge sites with trees, etc. 30 amp service was a little low in voltage but not a problem. Park hosts very accommodating. - consort

My family and I camped here for something different. You pay a load of money but it is worth it. The staff was very friendly and there was coffee and sweet rolls available on Saturday and Sunday, but I didnt go. We stayed in a very nice spot with our fire ring near the shore line so we could watch the fire and the lake at the same time. I loved the showers and the bathroom. I forgot my bike, and it's nice to have one because it is a big place!!! - Yooperboy

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

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

The daily rate above was for a week. $95 a week. This was the best deal I have had in years. We are on lot 42, a grass lot, beside the bathhouse and it is the only lot here that is this rate with full utilities including 50 amp service. It is deep enough for our 40' motorhome and twice as wide as some RV parks. The view out the side and front is Lake Sunday. There are 5 concrete parking pads across from us and the daily rate is $35. After a couple days it has been quiet. We are using this as a base to see water falls in the area. Verizon signal is a little weak but works. Park wifi on this site is fantastic. The wifi antenna is mounted on the bathhouse roof. There is a lake beach area in the park. Looked at the bathhouse and it did look dated but functional. Satellite for DirecTV worked great. We would definitely stay here again especially on this lot. - User1984

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

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

A pleasant surprise before heading to the Porkies in the AM. We stayed here in a 23' class B MH - no slides or toad. Couldn't reach them via phone because of non cell areas throughout UP. BUT the owner had heard enough to have a site picked for us. Short walk to the river (a bit muddy) but interesting to see their pontoon boat anchored with a bolted picnic table on it. Quite different. The owner and staff were helpful and attentive. We would stay here again. Our site was electric and water - convenient dump station. Showers and rest rooms were roomy and clean. - and HEATED!! - KAZIMIRA

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

I considered not even writing this review so I could hog this park all to myself. There are sites on Lake Superior large enough for my 40' rig, 14' trailer and car. We have a short walk through a low dune to the beach. We were able to pull the MH in front-first to maximize the view and minimize the wind on our awning. The manager and his staff are beyond helpful and pleasant. Bathrooms are super clean, and the shower water is hot. If you don't want to break camp and dump, they have a reasonably priced honey-wagon, as they have no sewer. But who cares? There is a lovely nature trail through surprisingly mature woods to walk the dog. And I could go on and on.
The only difficulty is they do not take reservations. Some lakeside sites are 9 day limits, some are sixteen. There are always some sites off the lake available through mid-day, and the equestrian park across the street always seems to have openings. So there is always SOME place to stay here. Once here, you can scout out opening sites and move if you so wish. The 16-day limit is for a particular site, not the park itself, so you can move around and extend your stay. It's worth this minimal hassle.
We are extending our stay here, and would go out of our way to return. - Sheryl E

What a gem! They don't take reservations until 8 AM on the day you plan to arrive. We just showed up early and were lucky enough to get a site directly on the beach that fit our 25 foot Class C perfectly. We were literally 25 feet from the beach and water. In another section of the park there were $30 gravel back-in beach sites for larger RVs. Across the road, the park had secluded sites in the woods, but we thought the bugs could be a problem. We only had plans to stay one night, but ended up staying 3 nights because of the sunsets and stars over Lake Superior. The park has a friendly and helpful attendant from 8AM-5PM and a camp host available 5-11 PM. There is a great children's play area in a separate section of the park. The park was very quiet and a one mile walk/drive to downtown Ontonagon. We thought this park was the "find" of our two weeks in the Upper Peninsula. - SnugBug1

This town park doesn't take reservations, but we were able to call in the morning before we came in and the nice young man managing the park took our RV info and held an appropriate site for us.
We had an excellent view of Lake Superior from our site, and as we were looking west over the lake we enjoyed walking down to the water and watching the sunsets.
About the only negative thing is the location of the utility hookups. They were in an unusual location relative to our unit, but we were able to get hooked up OK.
Overall, we were quite pleased with the park and would gladly stay there again. - Starxd
