We had a site with a wonderful view of the lake. The site was fairly level and mostly gravel. Those were the pluses. On the other hand the site was a back-in site off of rather narrow and short diameter circle. People park cars and boat trailers inside the circle adding to the navigation difficulties. There is a train track through the park although only 2 trains a day come through. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here in August, 2017. Made reservations in April for full hook up, requested nice spot. Arrived, unlevel, bad spot next to rr tracks. Trip hazard in spot, huge hole. When we arrived, trash was everywhere. Pretty much a dump. Picnic table could not be used. Will not recommend and will not stay again. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Motorhome.

Not convenient for a passing-thru overnight stay. Dumpster was locked with no phone number or Instructions for unlocking. Dumpster next to dump station was recycling only. ( Must have been another somewhere but not next to the dump station) We're on our way and not coming back....... Staff was nice tho and site was pretty with a view of the lake, Nice with trees but not too level. Bathrooms clean but not many for the size of the campground. One near our site was okay. And clean. But no facility for washing hands. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice location on lake. Train runs through campground. Our site was big but others small. Washrooms small, dirty every thing was rusty.Garbage cans over flowing. Park right along hwy and noisy. Seems run down and not modernized. Not worth $46.00 a night and will not return. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stay here for the summer season. Nice big lake with a swimming beach. Lot's of fun fishing, although they're tough to find sometimes. There's a boat dock for smaller boats and pontoons plus boat rentals are available. There's a small park store and office that offers the necessities. The very small restroom/showers are older but pretty clean. We always use our trailer facilities. There's a lot of toys and organized games for the kids. Overall, a nice park with nice owners. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Closest larger city is Marquette which is about 30 miles with smaller towns in between. We like not being too close to the bigger cities. There is some road noise from the highway at the upper end of the park. A train runs slowly but loudly right through the park at about 8:00 am and 6:00 pm almost daily but it only seems to add to the kids' enjoyment of the park.

I picked this campsite from the reviews of all of western U.P. - it seemed to have the best overall reviews. I concur with them, it's a very well managed/maintained, clean, nice campground on the lake Michigamme with a decent beach and rental boats. We were there in off-season, so that meant few campers were there, and we got almost our pick of the sites - the best are in the loop just off the beach (48 to 53) where you look out on the lake.

Regarding other reviewer comments, see below - neither was a problems for us, but here is my take on these concerns:

Trains - yes, there are train tracks running right through the campground. (See the campsite map at bottom of their website). We noticed 2 trains in our 10-day stay, there were probably others. For the campsites adjacent to the tracks they are closer than it appears on the campsite map - really close. (This includes sites 1 to 6 in the big-rig section, and low 40s, and 18 to 21.) But for the loops for sites from upper 40s thru 50s to lower 60s - and the small site loop 26-36 , they are reasonably far enough away.

Bathhouse - The bathhouse is clean, but is small for the number of campsites, especially as there are many small sites that could only handle tent or popups without the in-unit option of full size RVs. This was not an issue for us due to being off-season, but I can imagine they could get crowded when full during the summer. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It always depends what you are looking for in a campground. The positives are plentiful here. It's in a beautiful location right on Lake Michigamme with boats to rent (or bring your own). There is also fishing and swimming in the warm lake water. Big rigs? No problem. There is 50 Amp service, good wifi, and many sites with open sky for satellite. If you are looking for a traditional peaceful camping week, without chaos, this is a great place for you. Bring a book to read, and relax and recharge. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Motorhome.

Marquette, is 25 minutes east, right on Lake Superior. It has any supplies you might need.

We needed a half way point between Duluth and St. Ignace, and this park fit the bill. It is a well run park on the shore of Lake Michigamme. They have boat rentals and a nice beach. Wifi is very good. Yes, there is a railroad thru the park but it has very low usage. Nice back-in spot with 50 Amp service. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground on a lake. Sites were very unlevel, had to use a 4x4 to get level from side to side. Mosquitoes were very bad and being from Louisiana, I know my mosquitoes. This could be a real nice park with a little money. We just did an overnight here. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate listed is for 50 amp full hookup. We did receive a 10% discount with our Good Sam membership. Wi-Fi was weak in our site but we were able to get a roof mounted DirectTV signal. Verizon and our Mi-Fi worked. Park is located right off highway 41 so there is a bit of road noise. There are also train tracks that run through the middle of the campground, with trains passing through 1-2 times a day while we were here ( never at night ). Larger units are parked in the front section but have to pass this area to initially register. Once registered you have to navigate the rest of the park to turn around before getting to your site - kind of a goofy set up. Front sites are not on the lake, nor do they have a lake view. Think we would stay in Marquette next time as this park is about 35 miles away and not much to do in the area. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Motorhome.

We spent a Tuesday night here in late July and had a FHU, back-in site with a view of the lake out our windshield. About 60 of the sites are FHU and we had one of maybe a dozen that are satellite friendly. There is no cable TV and only 4 antenna channels. The sites are mostly grass and gravel back-ins and of a decent size. Our site was level. There appear to be some, but not too many, seasonal sites. There were only about 30 sites occupied the night of our stay and maybe half of those might have been we seasonal. There is a small beach. The water is much warmer than Lake Superior. There is also a 60+foot pier that can accommodate customer boats. There were numerous empty boat trailers on the park's grounds. This is a nice park that serves locals for boating, fishing, and that week long vacation or weekend get-a-way. The Wi-Fi worked well at our site. The restrooms were old and a bit small for a park with 20 sites without sewer. The laundry had two of each machine and was $1.25 per machine. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Motorhome.

Great park that has just about everything. The sites are spacious and level. You can choose from a site with or without trees. Some sites have views of Michigamme Lake. Beautiful spot and we would have stayed longer, but had to keep on our schedule heading back home. We will definitely stop here again. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Motorhome.

VERY nice campground. Incredibly clean, super great beach and swimming area. Very nice playground. We also saw the bald eagles. We were right on the lake and had full hook up. If were were not touring the UP we would have stayed for the entire week. The only strange this is they clean the bathrooms from like 11am-12pm. I thought that seemed a little early. I like to wait a bit until the morning rush had a chance (I hate lines), but it turned out I had to use the shower in my camper any way, which is fine too. Owners are also very familiar with the area and are more then willing to give suggestions and directions anywhere you ask. We will be back!

Excellent park with huge pullthru sites. Some highway noise at the pullthrus but not annoying. I thought the price was a little high. We camped at Michigamme Shores Campground in a Travel Trailer.
