5 Parks near Gwinn, Michigan
Aug 2016 - $10.00
You can't beat the price! There are just 20 sites and they are mostly filled. We had 50 amp power and good water pressure. Satellite tv worked fine. I used my own wifi. There are such great walking paths here. There is a lot of street closures so it was more difficult to get in the park. We really enjoyed our stay here. - oniedu

I have to balance my opinion on this park with the fact it was only $10 a night with the Passport America discount for a full-hookup site. If not for that, my rating would be lower. No full-time host at this city park. All sites are back-in unless there is no one in the site behind yours, then you can drive through that site and pull into yours. Water pressure was 40+ PSI, but volume seemed a bit low. WiFi does not cover the park, so if you want WiFi, get a site close to the office. Antenna picked up only 4 channels and they came in weak. Never had that happen before. Mosquitoes were real bad. Cell service was spotty. The town of Gwinn has the basics. This place is good for an overnight or a few days. I paid for 7 days and left after 5. Would not stay here again. Munising and Marquette have so much more it would be worth the extra cost to me. - TH travelers

Great little park in town on the river. 20 full hookup, back-in sites including Wi-Fi. Very neat and clean park. Looks like 30 and 50 amp at all sites. There are also about 20 primitive sites in the trees. - jprisbe

As detailed in previous postings, this is parking places off to the side of the main parking lot. 50 amp electric and nothing else but you can't beat the price, FREE. Just register at the casino. - lllkrob

This campground has electric only, but it's free! In addition, they give you $5.00 a day to stay there, and a free drink ticket. In my review I gave a cost of one dollar, as the form doesn't recognize free. It is a smaller casino, but we always have good luck there, and the staff is super friendly. - Northern Runner

This is a very nice and clean park. All 7 sites are long and level. Cell phone service was weak. For satellite you had to shoot between trees so it might be hard to get. Would stay here again when in area. - ds4006

Felt like when the owner saw our big rigs, he upped the price. However, it is tourist season. As others stated, nice beach across the street. Interesting stone work pieces around the grounds. Movie shown the night we arrived. - MizB450

BYOW: bring your own water. The water at the park is full of iron, tastes bad, looks bad, and will stain. The owner is a unique individual who built and maintains the park all by himself. And, it looks like it. After the initial creepy feeling I got meeting the man and seeing his treasures, I realized he is most likely harmless, just eccentric. The Wifi is worthless, the Fudge Factory is closed, there is no pool or other amenities other than the rock carvings and his collection of junk. There is, however, a nice beach right across the street.
The price is on the high side but negotiable, especially if you bring cash.
None of the roads or sites are paved, and the park becomes a little muddy after rain. We will not stay here again because of the water and other reasons. - The Penguin

This is an old school campground. The rest rooms are dark and only one stall had one roll of toilet paper. The drinking water was brown. Buy water before you get there. The price was cash only. WiFi was weak except for in the Library where you cannot find a light switch when dark! Our site had deflated balloons and used paper towels on the ground from the previous user. - PF Churchill

The RV park is part of Country Village which includes a restaurant, brewery, motel, tanning center, movie theater, gift shop, and convenient off Hwy 28. - gbburgess

We stayed at this campground for two nights on our way to Copper Harbor, MI. It was pretty disappointing that the pool was out of service but it was because no fault of theirs (closed because of health dept regulations- think Caddyshack). They instead offered wristbands to swim at the motel pool next door. Not the same as an outdoor pool but I'm not lowering my rating for that. The staff was very friendly. The campground main loops were blacktop. Lots were packed red gravel with grass and spacious. The campground is very wide open with almost no trees. This is primarily a motor coach spot and there weren't many families, at least not that we could see. The playground is a little lacking for families but no biggie. Everything was as expected or greater for our visit. - Done Roughing It

The campground is tucked behind a row of stores and services that provide all basic needs within a walk, bike ride or short drive.
Positives: asphalt roads (mostly); wi-fi is okay since it was up and down during my stay; not a lot of long term campers.
Negatives: Most sites are not level.
My site: Most sites are wide with a gravel red dirt pad and a grassy area. My site was one of the odd ones with mostly dirt and it faced my neighbors. The sewer connection was high which required me to monitor the hose when draining waste.
I would chose a different CG if I ever return to the area. - jnateg

We stayed for 4 nights and found the campgrounds to be very nice. The full hooksups are a great feature and there is plenty to do in the area, including swimming in Lake Superior, if you are up for it. For the less hardy there is a small beach on the river in the park with warmer water. - TBammer

I do not recommend this park for big rigs. You can get in here but 30 doesn't work in site 86 and the staff doesn't care. The office is staffed by kids and since this is a city park, customer service is not a concern. Open ground on the pedestal. Electrician will not come out to fix it because it is a weekend. Can't run the AC and lots of campfires so leaving the windows open is not a good idea.
Dirt/mud site with trees so no satellite lock. No cable either and OTA is spotty. Lots of big dogs that bark.
Interior roads are asphalt with huge deep potholes. - pcmike

Huge place. Shaded. Big rigs fine. Two girls in the office were very friendly and helpful. The 30-amp electricity did not work in the first two sites I pulled into, but it was fine in the one where I settled. Some sewer hookups are way too far away from the sites to use (i.e. Space 92). Some site pads are dirt, others paved. They all looked fairly level. My Verizon Hotspot worked fine. This is an okay place, but nothing special. I'd stay somewhere else next time. - Charles3
