The rate is for a second row from the water site with 50 amp, water, and cable TV (which we did not use). Since they do not accept reservations, we arrived fairly early in the day on a week-day and had no problem getting a site. However, by the weekend, they were putting people in overflow sites, that were not that nice. You drive, or walk, around and find a site without a tag and without anything in the site. You set up, then go back and pay. Some of the best sites next to the water are taken by season (or almost season) renters, but we still got a nice large, fairly level, site. We did not use the facilities but did use the laundry. From the smell in the laundry room and coming from the restrooms, we were glad we are self-contained and did not need the restrooms. We were able to get satellite TV by using our portable dish. We had good Verizon voice and data. It was fairly quiet in the campground at night. If visiting the area again, we might choose to stay in Munising where there are more activities, but this campground worked for us. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Ladies in the office are not real friendly. You can tell they are a bit overwhelmed and pretty much tired of their job. Park was crowded, we stayed in overflow for $21 the 1st night. Were advised to troll around the night before and ask campers when they were leaving to coordinate getting a spot since it's 1st come 1st serve. Sites are close, some REAL close. Lake Superior is beautiful! Makes the circus, overcrowding worth it all. Not many choices in the area. In all this is good if you can fight your way in. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly! Weakness: This is a first come first served park. No reservations. If you call ahead they can tell you if any spots are available.

Strengths: Beautiful park right on Lake Superior with a fantastic beach. Grand Marais is a quaint little Northeast looking town.

Cable TV and WiFi. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Check in was a little confusing as the person was not sure how to proceed to get into our site. We actually walked down to the site to determine which way we should enter. It was a back in which was a little tight, but satisfactory. All hook ups are at the rear so make sure you have extra hoses. The sites were resonably level, with hard packed gravel. There was a table and firepit. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

If you can tolerate a campground run on a first-come first-serve basis, and you want to enjoy some beautiful scenery, then this campground is worth a try. We arrived early on a Wednesday afternoon and found that no sites were available. However, we were placed in an overflow site (dry camping) for one night and all went well. The office staff were extremely helpful and welcoming, and we quickly learned the informal rules for seeking out a new site for the next day. The bottom line is that you find the site and then tell the office, and you have to be quick. We ended up in a site with a great view of Lake Superior and easy access to the beach. We were able to ride our bicycles to the Dunes and the town, although very small, was nearby with lots of charm. The campground is not fancy but the location was well worth the time and effort. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

If you are still looking for that Shangri-La in the UP, think again. Grand Marais has been found! The campground still will not create a reservation system which leaves you with the big 25 mile gamble. In their eyes everyone is a winner - nobody turned away - even if that means sitting in a field with no hookups. Some staff seemed to be really annoyed to answer simple questions. Practice the game of site shuffle to get what you really want. If you really want to come to see Grand Marais, I would recommend staying somewhere else and making this place a day trip. My least favorite campground in the UP but find myself forced to use this mismanaged campground for family reasons. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

As a previous reviewer said, sites range from tiny to huge, level to unlevel, shady to sunny. We had a hard time finding a site we could get into and had to remove a site-number pole to do it. Water hook-ups are mostly at the back of every other site serving four sites per hook-up so have enough hose to cross from opposite side if necessary. Much depends on your neighbors' behavior. Our neighbors were very nice but inconsiderate, constantly burning a campfire which was so smoky we couldn't sit outside or open our windows. Surprisingly quiet for large number of campers. Wifi never worked at our site. Lovely town with lots of history. Would definitely stay again if in area. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Only campground in town. Sites range from huge to tiny, level to unlevel. No reservations so it is a hit or miss of what you end up with. Town squeezed in as many as they could in some sections. Some sites have unobstructed views of Lake Superior, some have too much brush/trees to see the lake. Lost many of their old growth beech trees a few years ago. Doesn't appear that township has any plans on fixing up sites in this cash-cow campground. Long way to drive for a tiny spot that sits in the sun. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Another favorite park in the quaint village of Grand Marais. Although we had a waterfront site we couldn't see too much of the grand Lake Superior because trees had grown too large. But we enjoyed the layed-back ambience of the area. Not too much to do in town (which is only one block long). Woodland Park is a city park and probably the largest commercial establishment in the city. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is first come/first served. You can not call ahead to make a reservation. The phone number listed for it is for the town offices. You drive around and select a site from the unoccupied sites. Then after you move in, you go to the office and pay your fee. While we were there, there were plenty of sites. The sites along the lake shore are $30/night. The other sites with electricity and water were $27/night. The campground is on a bluff overlooking Lake Superior with staircases of 40 steps down to the beach. The beach is sand and then pebbles at the waters edge. The sites are mostly narrow, however they adequate for a big rig. The bath houses are in good shape, and the laundry room is clean. The campground is very close to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

We very much enjoyed our stay in this municipal park. Everything is low key. Lake Superior is just steps away and they have steps down to the beach. Gorgeous sunsets. Showers are coin operated. You can bike to town - 1 grocery, 4 restaurants and an outdoor store. Right at the eastern edge of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is right on Lake Superior! And boy, what a view! Our site was spacious (#22). We were close to both bathrooms/shower buildings, which were very clean. Just make sure to have your quarters with you, as it costs $.50 for a shower. Sites and grounds were well maintained, and the campground was quiet at night. This campground doesn't take reservations, but I was told that they have never turned anyone away, for the fact that they have an overflow area. Nothing fancy about the campground itself, but the view can't be beat! We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Daily rate is $25, weekly rate is $150, and monthly rate is $600 for a lakefront 50 amp electric, water, and cable site. All sites are first come, first served at this lovely municipally owned and operated campground. There is a mixture of full-shade, partial-shade, and full-sun sites. All sites are just a short walk down stairways placed throughout the campground to the very nice, sandy beach on Lake Superior. To enter the water one must walk over a strip of smooth agate pebbles so water shoes are advisable. Spacing between sites was roomy and most sites were level. All sites are hard-packed dirt, which allows you to park in most any direction. The dump station is located near the main entrance/exit. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well lit. Recreational opportunities are available in and around the park. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is adjacent to the park and offers many sights and activities. Do your grocery shopping in a bigger city before you arrive as there is very limited shopping/groceries available in the small town of Grand Marais. Wi-Fi is free at the campground, but it can be a bit flaky at times. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

A great campground by a great town (Gran Marais) by a great lake (Superior). This place was a find. Though Woodland Park is a first-come-first-served campground, we were able to pick a site (of several available ones) during the height of summer. The grass campsites are laid out with adequate room between each and many sites have electric, water, and cable -- though no sewer hookups. There are a couple of small grocery stores in Grand Marais plus a few restaurants. Regardless, it's a great place to walk around. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is within walking distance and boats tours of the Pictured Rocks are an hour away in Munising. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed one night at the end of Sept. Park was less than 1/4 full. Bring extra hook up supplies as the sites are all different and power, water, cable points vary. This was established as a public RV park decades ago and as such was not intended for big rigs. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
