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

This campground is just fine if you are self contained and can live without good TV. Actually we found PBS stations. Our Verizon phone and broadband worked fine here. We stayed in site East 13 which is right on the lake. The dirt trail entrance is fine and just past the camping site is a look to turn the rig around. Quiet. Grass, some trees fairly level. Hand water pump available next to site. There is a west area campground that we did not visit, but on the site map, the area looks good with a few pull throughs. Check out the website maps before visiting. And there really was no camping charge, I put in $1 to get the page to work. It did cost $8 to visit Bond Falls, which are beautiful. - rncordy

This park is run under by Upper Peninsula Power Company. It is one mile east of US-45 in Paulding. The park has rustic camping with spots scattered all along the north shore of the flowage. There is a office to check in by the entrance. - Yooperboy

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

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

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

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
