12 Parks near Brimley, Michigan
Jun 2016 - $28.00
Great state park with long sandy beach on Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay.
Modern Michigan State Park restrooms with individual shower rooms. Should note that like all Michigan State Parks you need a separate"Recreational Pass" for both your motorhome and "toad" at extra charge. Paved interior roads and roomy shaded grassy sites, but no privacy between sites. - Appleknocker

"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! - MarieB

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. - U.P. North

I can't really remember what we paid but it was about $30- I think.
We only stayed one night as we were moving toward another location.
It is all open field sites. they are level, only small trees. Only restrooms/showers are up at front.
You must register at the Hotel across the street. They are friendly and helpful though. It is completely open to the public, no gate code or anyone from the facility on site. Everything is at hotel/casino.
We had a problem with our awning. It had rained and was wet, slipped and slid hard into down position.
We called the desk and they sent their maintenance guy. He was friendly and helpful- in the rain no less- and helped get it unstuck.
Sites are gravel/grass ( weeds), W/E are well placed and in good shape. Dump station is easy to get to and on the way out.
They have boat ramp into the lake you can use too.
Simple and not great views, but not a bad place to stop over.
Good area to walk the dog. - sunandwater

Price reflects weekly rate ($205/wk); no discount was used, but Good Sam discount is offered. Sites are wide, level, and very long; all are pull-through. Sites on the north end of the park may have a couple of small trees that provide little or no shade. Sites on the south end have no trees and no shade. Sites are gravel/dirt and grass; roads are graded dirt. Clean, well-equipped, inexpensive laundry. Hotel/Casino with restaurants and pubs directly across the street. There is a small Farmer's Market in the casino parking lot on Thursdays. Easy access to Sault Ste. Marie and other sights of interest. Located on the road that turns in to the beautiful Whitefish Scenic Drive! Will definitely stay again when in the area. - CWinLV

Great park for visiting Sault Ste. Marie and the shores of Lake Superior. Nothing fancy but neat and clean. Level sites, good WIFI and cable. All the frills are right across the street, a nice casino. - B&S

No potable water, the utility post was a couple of 120 volt outlets with a bucket over the top to keep them dry. Small sites. From the website we expected a view of the river somewhere in the campground but there wasn't any (we were told you had to walk thru the woods and follow the fence to the park down the way to get to the river. We cancelled our stay and went down to road to another campground (we have stayed is some iffy places before and never walked away but didn't want to risk our unit to their electrical hookup). Nice people in the office-they didn't give us any problem with a refund. - kld

This park is opening all sites to seasonal. Grab your site now. The managers are very helpful and keep a close eye on things. They have decided for next year that all sites, including beach front will be open to seasonal campers. - normsoo

Far from town on a quiet point on the lake. Friendly and helpful staff, small and limited camp store. Good park for a quiet weekend, or drive into town for restaurants, shops and the casino. Fun activities for the whole family. - Makanamommy

We pulled into the park and parked next to the camp host's RV. No one was around. The site was grassy and level. There were 3 or 4 other RVs stating there. One of the 2 men's showers was not working due to a leaking hose. The dressing area was real close to the showers, and I got my clothes damp. Tow of the toilets needed paper. - 1dinky

We stayed here 2 nights. The pads are only 20' long but the area is quite long and we were able to hang over onto the grass. The park was under utilized so we parked our truck on the site next to us and it wasn't an issue. They also have a 30 day rate which was quite reasonable. We would stay here again. - Chris-N-Keith

This is a nice township RV Park in Kinross / Kincheloe to relax. There is not very much you can do there, but we also used it as a base camp for Sault Sainte Marie, St. Ignace + Mackinac Island, and a trip to White Fish Point with the Ship Wreck Museum. The roads inside the park are paved and the sites are all back-in sites with a concrete pad. The pads are only 20 ft long, but level. The full hookups have only 30 Amp. The campground is quiet. The clubhouse looked run-down inside. A grocery is in walking distance. With Passport America you can get a discount for one night. - RVer from Oregon

This park has closed. The land is reportedly being developed as the new site of a WalMart SuperCenter. - peakcomm

A nice campground for a home base to see the area. Owners are very nice. They also provide a pet walking service, too. Had a nice time there. Should note that they are in the process of trying to sell the campground, and if they do, the above statements, might not apply. - Armenian

This is place to dry camp with power. we were scheduled to leave today going to our next stop but decided we wanted to stay another night to take the Soo Locks Dinner cruise. We came here and found the place to be nice for what it is. Sites vary in size but you can get in and out with a big rig, no problem. Road is gravel, Sites are grass and level. Great Verizon 4G and open for satellites. You can use the hotel pool and workout room as well as restaurants and shows. Good place to stay of ra night or two. Cost can be dependent on your activities in the Casino! - Pjoe

Electric on site, water at the bathroom building. Dump site is at the back of the casino parking lot. One huge issue, at the dump site there are two hoses present neither of which is potable water but there is NO sign stating that. Only potable water is at the bathhouse. We mentioned it to the cashier at the front desk when we registered and said that he would bring it to the attention of the manager. I doubt that anything will be done about it. Since it is a tribal casino I don't think that local health department can do anything about it. - Rick & Karen

Great overnight stop for us to resupply the RV and fuel up before heading into Canada. Clean, well maintained campground with access to the casino facilities included. Very nice staff. Restrooms and showers were very clean and well maintained. Would definitely return passing through the area. Electric only available at each site. - Bob & Stephanie

Best park in area with great location. 2nd time we have stayed here. Some paved sites and some grass. Beautiful spot on river to watch barges, freighters, tour boats, and pleasure boats. Might need reservations. - Rpopeye

Nice clean campground right on the Saint Marys river about a mile down from the locks. The big ships sail right through the front yard and it's pretty neat. 30 amp only, no sewer though there is a convenient dump station.
There are some waterfront sites though they're not necessary to have a good view of the passing ships.
I recommend this campground as a unique experience. - The Penguin

We LOVED this place - our site 51 right on the water where we could watch freighters and other enter the locks. Super staff and well kept showers and rest rooms. Lots to see around locks with good restaurants nearby. We stayed here in a class B - no slides or toad. Water and electric site with convenient dump upon exit. We would definitely stay here again. - KAZIMIRA

When we arrived, we checked in and walked over to check out our site, which had a popup in it. So, we returned to the office and they attempted to contact the owner and got voice mail. They found us a site to park our fifth wheel in, with electric so we could run our AC for our cat, and we unhooked and headed into town for lunch. By the time we were done, our site was available, so we headed back to get settled in. The sites are fairly close together and there are very few trees for privacy or shade. We didn't manage to score a waterfront spot, but we weren't that far and could glimpse the freighters from our window.
Our site had 50 amp and water, but some are 30 amp. Most appear to be fairly level, but the pads aren't always clearly defined. We couldn't use our firepit, since we were almost on top of it, but others had placement that was better. Big rigs work well here, but some spots are more friendly that others.
We managed to connect to the wifi, but it wasn't worth using at our site. We had 2 bars and LTE with AT&T, so I was happy. Nothing overhead, so our Dish satelite worked great. The showers were nice and restrooms clean. We didn't look at the laundry room, but they have one. There is a playground for kids in the center of one of the loops, swings and a slide, nothing fancy.
We enjoyed the town, lots of souvenir shops and a few good places to eat. The locks are the highlight of town and we watched a 1000' freighter go through, pretty cool.
I wouldn't consider this an amazing park, but the location is great and it's got a nice view. If you want privacy and trees or activities and a pool, you won't get it here. But, I don't think you'll find that anywhere close to here. - Uno Mas

This is a very popular campground, and the waterfront spots are almost always full. Reservations are recommended especially during the summer. We met several people who come back every year, in the same spot, for months at a time. We "site hopped" when we visited as we kept trying to get on the water. With persistence, we did score with 2 sites! Due to the creative layout of the sites, you can see water, albeit fragmented, from just about any site. It was a common site to see people running up to the river to take pictures of the freighters as they passed by :) And the freighters are mesmerizing to watch! The sites themselves are fairly level and most are quite large. In fact, it's a challenge in some to figure out exactly where your site starts and ends. All sites have water and 30 amp. A handful of sites have 50 amp. There is a dump in the park. Interior roads are decent with somewhat large boulders set in various places that need to be avoided. We could never get the WII FI to work even with our extender. Verizon coverage is great, and we had no issue with attempts to connect to Canadian towers. Directv satellite worked without any problem. It was very windy when we were there, and I don't know if that is a common occurrence or not. The temperature was perfect anywhere between the 60's and low 70's. Cute, but touristy, downtown area. Very easy to bike downtown. We stayed here in a motorhome and will definitely return. - Free

The park offers great viewing of the vessels that come through Sault Ste. Marie. The directions to get to the park were confusing in Woodall's but Google Maps worked well. - gbburgess

The park was beautiful due to the many trees in their full fall colors. The management was friendly and made sure that we had enough room to park our tow vehicle in a site next to our site. The restrooms were beautiful and clean. The campground included lots of amenities as well as really nice looking cabins and camping cabins. A fun place to spend a week in the summer with your children, lots to do for them. Sites were close but staggered to make it feel spacious. We were close to town and the Agawa train as well as lots of restaurants and grocery stores. - mountainfan

We have been regular visitors at the KOA since 2011. Our preference is the Deluxe patio sites. The staff is outstanding and extremely courteous! in our last visit, we had the opportunity to use their newly developed Deluxe Patio back-in site, it was perfect! Level area for our motor coach, paved patio area also had a complimentary gas grill and had nice shade throughout the day! Since we travel with two rough coat tri-color collies, the campground has a great K-9 play area, also a wonderful Outdoor Dog Agility Facility! We have been very pleased and impressed with improvements the owners have made with their KOA! Great folks! - Pete Stojanovich

The RV sites are very close together and the hookups are in between 4 sites, so you might have to turn your RV around to have the connections be on the right side. There is no cable TV and the antenna only got 1 channel. The night we got there, the Wi-Fi was not working, but it was working by the next morning. The restrooms are clean, but need maintenance. The shower curtain is short, so the water goes out to the dressing area, getting floor and shoes wet. Makes it difficult to get dressed. The laundry facilities are up by the office, too far to walk several times with a load of laundry. I would not camp here again. - Capt.Deb

Easy pull through campsites. There was a torrential downpour when we arrived, and some sites were flooded. We asked to move and were accommodated by very helpful staff. Washrooms were clean. - Bruce1957

Nice, nearly empty park convenient to Sault Ste Marie, ON. Sites were assigned and nearly all campers were bunched together back to back in the "no trees" area. Would be much more pleasant if campers could pick their own sites and spread out more. Pretty pricey for campground. Pool available, but weather was not good. - bambilynn
