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. We camped at Brimley State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The lake is the main attraction but a visit to Sault Ste Marie and the Soo locks is interesting.

"State Parks" all have several things in common - trees, usually narrow roads, close sites and lots of families with children. That said, we like them because they are "natural" and feel like "real camping". The smell of everyone burning wood in the fire pits, pine trees, children playing, birds singing, people laughing, it's all just so much more relaxed than at a "formal campground". The "down-side" is that you don't have TV, WiFi, and here, not even water or sewer hook-ups, but we enjoyed our stay, and you can't beat the nightly rate!(+plus park fee or annual pass). Brimley was a sweet little park, very green, along side Whitefish Bay. Very picturesque and quite. Many of the Rangers (we found) have you "pick your own site" then come back and tell them, rather than they pick for you. The park's aren't, for the most part, to full, especially during the week days, so you have quite a selection, which is a good thing, because with so many trees, it's better for you to do the choosing! We camped at Brimley State Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is right on Whitefish Bay in Brimley Michigan. For a state park, the campsite sizes are any where from big to HUGE. You just have to know what sites to get. There are plenty of shade trees. With the campground right on the lake, a strong North West wind blows off the lake and the site along the lake tend to be breezy (anchor your awning). The number of restrooms for the size of the campground is inadequate. The restrooms are also old. The State of Michigan had a program a few years back where they were building new restrooms at state parks and Brimley was not one of them. Overall, it is a nice place to stay a few days as a base camp. We camped at Brimley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice clean park with lots to do. The park is situated nicely on lake and canal. Great views from many sites. There is a Burger King right outside the park which is a nice option. On the other side of the park entrance is a go kart place. We travel with a small child so it is nice to have options when sitting around the camp fire starts to lose its appeal. We camped here last summer with three groups - tons of room on an average site for our 5th wheel, tent and two vehicles. Variety of site types, lots of green for shade and some with sun if that's what you're looking for. We camped at Brimley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Used this CG as a home base to visit the Shipwreck Museum, Tahquamenon Falls, Mackinac Island, Soo Locks, and more all within an hour. CG was very clean and the staff was pleasant and informed. Sites closest to water are the windiest and coldest but offer the best view. Sites along woods are not any more buggy. A slide was the only playground equipment. Roads were paved and great for bike riding. Bathrooms were older but very clean. Just enough trees to be rustic but spaced enough for the MHs around us to use satellite. We plan on staying here again. We camped at Brimley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A nice state park right on Lake Superior. When we stayed a cold front had just come through, and the wind really howled off the lake, so weather should be a consideration for your visit. Shower house and bathrooms are very nice, individual showers kept very clean. All paved streets, nice long beach to walk on. Lots of variety on campsites, the website is very descriptive on size and layout. We camped at Brimley State Park in a Travel Trailer.

You take your chances with northern parks in April. We had our pick of sites. NOBODY else was there. QUIET. Water had not been turned on yet so we had to fill at the office faucet. No biggie. A good portion of the bay was still covered with ice. Very pretty CG located far enough from any built up area. We camped at Brimley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We did not make a reservation since this is during the off-season. There were many sites available, including sites for big rigs. When reservations are made through Michigan DNR, there is an $8.00 reservation fee. We did not visit the bathroom facilities. We stumbled into a "1/2 price for one night coupon" in MARVAC'S RV & Campsite 2007 travel magazine, located at Michigan's Welcome Centers. The discount is good at several state parks. Very nice park, friendly staff and great camp hosts. If this park had full hookups, it would be a "10". We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Brimley State Park in a Motorhome.

A nice park with great views of the lake. The sites are large and there are great trails in the woods for short walks. Be careful of the site in the middle as the fire pits make you become close friends with your neighbors. This park is great for groups to go and make a circle around a campfire. I would return. We camped at Brimley State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
