Great little campground a little ways south of Marquette. The park office is not maned, so they ask for reservations to be made. It worked quite well. There was a sign with our name on it and we dropped the payment in their self service box. Our site was a little unlevel, but workable. We had full hookups and the electrical and WiFi were good. We chose this campground because it was convenient to Marguette's airport. We would stay there again. We camped at Farquar-Metsa Tourist Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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. We camped at Farquar-Metsa Tourist Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Farquar-Metsa Tourist Park in a Motorhome.

Great value they should raise the price. A month is $300! PPA $10 a night. Not a big park but a great little park. Great electric. I like the park. Park was a great value. We'd stay again in a minute. We camped at Farquar-Metsa Tourist Park in a Fifth Wheel.
