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.

Really glad we followed advice from others to camp at this campground. It's a well kept municipal facility. All sites were grassy and some seemed larger than others. It's pretty wide open, but there are many mature trees for shade. The beach is down a bluff, but there are stairs down to the beach. If you're a rock hunter the beach is full of a lot of good specimens. Water shoes are a good idea because there are a good number of stones upon entering the water. It's a good swimming beach though. The campground got very full over the weekend, but it was quiet around us (site #66). Downtown Grand Marais is just a short walk from the campground. We enjoyed the Lake Superior Brewing Company (bar & grill). Not much in the way of grocery stores, but there is a small one that has fresh meats and most supplies. The road west to Munising, H-58, is a nice drive. You can access some of the Pictured Rocks Nat'l Lakeshore sites along the road. You will also find some hiking trails there too. The flies were biting while we were there so we didn't hike much. We didn't have any fly problems on our walks into Grand Marais and out to the lighthouse point. We would definitely recommend this campground to others and will camp here again when in the area. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A pleasant surprise to me, this municipal campground is at the end of the road on state highway 77. It is located beside low sand cliffs over Lake Superior with two stairs down to the beach. On the land side is the attractive well kept little town of Grand Marais with interesting neat houses for a evening walk, and a harbour with a U.S. Coast Guard ship. A great place for a bike ride. Most of the sites are grassed and fairly level. There are two clean bathhouses with the hot showers taking 50 cents to use. However, I took a full shower without using all my 50 cents worth of time. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice and wonderful location. Large sites with wonderful view of Lake Superior. Only thing I would want from this campground is sewer hookups. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This municipal campground is located on a bluff above Lake Superior and offers convenient access to the sand beach below. Those not familiar with Lake Superior should be aware that the water temperature stays low (65 degrees) even in the summer, so swimming is not for the faint of heart. Each site is delineated by posts on 3 sides. While this gives the impression of a small pad (all are dirt), mine measured over 30 feet wide. Power, water and cable are located at the back corner of each site. I had no problem connecting to the utilities with a 25 foot power cord. The park supplies a very good Wi-Fi signal and an above average selection of cable TV channels. Grand Marais is a very small town with only a small general store / gas station. Be sure to bring an adequate supply of food. The campground does not accept reservations, so obtaining a spot in the summer might be a problem. I’d suggest calling ahead. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is as described in other posts, big issue is that water hook up on every other site is on the wrong side of the RV so bring a long hose to make a connection. Also if Wi-Fi is important then this may not be the place for you, Wi-Fi worked OK for 1st two days and the was non existent for the next 5 days, park staff did not seem to know what the problem was or get it fixed. Park is still nice being on Lake Superior, nice in Sept. because no crowds. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Good RV park with view of lake. Best sites are #8 to #18 with unobstructed view of lake. Sites need dirt hauled in to fill depression in center caused by years of use. Attendant would not turn WI-FI access on to Internet. Cable TV was weak (analog) and movie channels blocked. No sewer to allow longer visits. Needs MANAGEMENT.

We decided to take a chance on this "first come, first serve" park and showed up about noon on Sunday. We got a W&E (there are no sewer sites) site near the office that was out in the open enough to get satellite reception. The park has cable but we didn't hook up to it because it would have taken a 50' cord to do so. As it was, we had to use a 50' water hose. We shared a water post (it had 6 water spigots) with 4 other sites. Out site was closest to the post - the other sites were using multiple hoses connected together. As previously mentioned, the park is right on Lake Superior and the extensive beach is just a short walk and flight of stairs from your site. Most of the campers are families and groups in adjacent sites enjoying this park for get-together for days or weeks. We would have stayed another day if they had sewers. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.
