What a clean and convenient campground. The owner gives a full run down of sites around the area, the bathrooms are immaculate, the price is reasonable. Nice lodge building. WiFi was weak, but that is about the best you can get up in the UP. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Truck Camper.
Tips for other Campers:
Mountain bike trails leave right crom the campground.

If you want a full hookup site north of Houghton, this is it - thus the price. Sites are wide enough and long enough. Hookups are a bit odd in that there are connections for 2 sites on one post. Our sewer connection was on the correct side, but water and electric required long hose and cord to reach across the site and to the front. Water and 30 amp electric (the best they offer) worked fine. WIFI is free, but slow. Cell phone (Verizon) is non-existent. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
German restaurant in town is pricey, but good. Porter at the Brickside Brewery is very good. Nice drive on the Brockway Mountain Drive and on south on M-23 to Eagle River.

We were there for three days, parked in a real close row across from the bath house. Good things were the wifi comes from the bath house so it was good and the showers were handy. The park is two blocks from town so easy to walk or bike there. In the back, on the other side of the creek, there are well spaced wooded sites. Not sure if they are seasonal or not. There is a lake across the road, still in the park with a swimming area. Warning: the town has little cell service. I could not get ATT even where ATT says it is available. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Charming town with lots of shops. We ate at the Mariner restaurant which was good. Great views from various spots. Sort of the end of the earth. On Lake Superior.

Park has an excellent lake access. Park is positioned for a great trail to Fort Wilkins. Park is located only a few blocks from restaurants, gift shops, and a bakery. The area does not have cell phone coverage but their small motel has an easily accessible pay phone on the first floor. The campground also has free WiFi. The front part of the campground has a building where there is a very clean laundry area and a recreation area with a few video games. The sites for motor homes are fairly level and the back portion of the park have excellent wooded sites for tenting with electric at most sites. The dump station is easy to use in the front center portion of the park. There is a small store with some camp items at the check-in desk. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Tamarack restaurant is great. Great place to start a trip to Isle Royale NP in Lake Superior.
The town and the location are the draw and the park is what it is. Hookups are all over the place so when you make your reservation make sure you can handle what you are getting. Many sewer hookups are uphill, many sites are not level, electric may be way at the front of the site or mid-way. Electric (30 amp) worked well. The bathrooms are large and very clean. Walking distance to town. Lake is very close. No cell service at all. Wifi worked only part of the time and when it did it was very slow. You are off-the-grid around here. Great hiking trail starts at the resort. Satellite dish connected fine. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
As a frequent visitor (never in an RV) to Copper Harbor over the years I was looking forward to our visit here since I had not been to the Lake Fanny Hooe resort in over 15 years and never been there in the summer. This area (and campground) is stunning in the summer. The campground has a great mix of full, partial and primitive camping lots. There are just 8 full hookup sites so reserve early if you want sewer. The campground was well groomed and very...community-like. The campsites are in in a semi-circle with a newer playground set in the center. The clubhouse is right next door and had plenty of tables if you wanted to escape the elements or gather with others. There was not much else in the clubhouse but it was clean and everything in good shape. The restrooms were always clean. Showers were nice with good pressure and always clean too. My only complaint would be the wi-fi. Granted, many go here to get away from it all but there's no cell service or internet in town. The wi-fi worked so long as few were using it. It was unusable when everyone was at their sites. I'm not lowering my rating since I know they always had good signals to the routers, but the overall bandwidth for everyone in the campground was too low. I sync'd my email a couple times a day. It's tough to get good internet up there! The check-in experience was great because the man suggested many things for us to check out during our visit. His advice was spot on for us and we're looking forward to a longer stay up here in a year or two. I do think that $55 a night is a little pricey for 2 adults and 3 kids ages 4, 9 and 11 but this was a great destination in a remote area!

Site 56 not level. Wi-Fi not so good. Cable TV good. Toilets and showers plentiful and clean. Nice lake . Nice setting. Sites close together and some shared areas depending if you back in or go forward. With no cell service, it would have been good to have totally consistent and reliable Wi-Fi. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
Very nice little campground situated right on Lake Fanny Hooe - cabins and lodge on the water; campgrounds just across the little road. Big rigs and RVs in front of the campground; tents set back in second loop. RV sites were accessed easily, but were close to each other, with no trees in between most of them (trees in the back of each spot), but the very friendly staff, the ultra-clean bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities made this a winner! Great location for visiting Isle Royale National Park - ferry leaving from Copper Harbor is just minutes from this campground. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
Beautiful location. 10 full hook up sites which worked fine. Grass site was easy to level. Shared utilities; ours were on the correct side with back-in site so satellite from roof was good. If you had to drive in there would be no satellite due to trees. 40' no problem. Picnic table and fire rings. Only cell phone reception is by driving up a hill outside of town. Can walk to boat to Isle Royale. Staff very helpful. Only a general store in town so be prepared. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
This campground also has cabins and a motel. The campsites are level. The shared utilities posts are set between sites, so depending on which one you have, it may be on the "wrong" side. The town has no cell phone reception at all. The campground has wifi, which was nice to have. Our site was at the edge and was surrounded on 3 sides by trees so the service was degraded. In the clubhouse in the center it was more than adequate. Copper Harbor is beautiful, natural and rugged. There is great mountain biking and kayaking. Some Friday evenings they have an Art Crawl where the local artist community open their galleries and homes to sell their wares. There were re-enactors at the Fort. We camped here because the state park was full. We would camp here again. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
Great little campground in the UP. On a lake but the sites were off the lake. Think maybe 1 or 2 sites had a little lake view across the street. I believe all sites backed up to woods or meadow. Smaller sites very wooded. Larger sites more open but nice size. Utilities on front of site so make sure you have adequate hose and cord to reach. Cell service non-existent. They claimed to have wi-fi but weak. Some people went to club house to connect. Great staff. Very we'll kept property. We would return. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and northernmost town of Copper Harbor. Full hook-up. No cellular voice or data within 5 miles. Free Wi-Fi in park works well in non-peak. We were able to Skype to make a few important calls. The campground is very nice and the sites roomy. There are only 10 or so full hook-up. Others are without utilities. The area is very scenic with many biking and hiking opportunities. We also kayaked the lake which was right behind our site (but no view). There is also a historic Fort (Wilkins) up the road. We took in the Delaware Copper Mine tour which was very good. The restrooms were VERY clean and there is a nice community lounge. I would use Lake Fanny Hooe again.

This was an odd little campground in that the connections were placed way at the front of the sites. We had to park nose-in instead of backing in and then bring out electrical cords under the coach in order to reach the unit. That put us side-by-side the other coach, making us quite close to them - leaving lots of space on the other side. That, plus the site itself was really lumpy so we had to be very careful how we walked or we would trip as the grass covered the dips. The plus side was that it forced us to meet our neighbors which were very friendly and we had great evening fires with them! The lake is lovely to look at and Copper Harbor is enjoyable itself. There was a bike race in town, so the state park was full, and we were lucky to get this place! All in all, it was a fine stay. We were told to expect no cell service, so no surprises there. We didn't expect to get our WiFi, so that was a nice surprise when we got that! It helped to have low expectations. Very nice people tho and a beautiful drive there! Well worth the trip in!

Shore Services 30 amp, No sewer in many of the sites, Water at 70psi, Wi-Fi is good and that is good because there is no Cell Phone, Sprint, Verizon Aircard service here. No cable. Sites are level and wide enough. Our site is long for our 38ft fifth wheel, however, the power and water services are up at the front of the sites. I had to park my truck beside my trailer between a tree and the trailer. There was 20 ft behind my trailer I couldn't use. I have a 25 ft extension to my 50 amp power cord. This allowed me enough room to set my trailer back far enough to keep the front out of the campground road. Twenty eight is ok for electric & water, but $42 is way to much for full service. The road into and in the campground are good. Restrooms are very clean, Laundry has 4 washers & 4 Driers. They both cost $2.00 per load. The dryers only run 30 min, which did not get our clothes dry requiring another $2.00, then the blue jeans still did not get completely dry. No discounts. Credit card is good for payment. This is a nice park and there is some great scenery out along the lake. I would stay here again. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campsites here are good sized, and it was nice to have full hook-up and free internet in such a rural area especially when there is no cell service. It’s close proximity to everything makes it convenient. Overall a very nice property. We camped at Lake Fanny Hooe Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.
