Small park, some sites W/E, some 30A, some 50A, few with water. No FHU, good dump station. On a hill, leveling on some sites could be a challenge. Very nice staff. Good base to tour the area - approx. 1 hour north to Copper Harbor. No OTA signal. WiFi at our site, not sure if the sites by the water would have it. Sites near water could accommodate larger rigs - we had a back-in (#8) that was fine for our 26' and toad. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Motorhome.

Great stay at this CLEAN park. Restrooms recently painted, always clean. Park is clean with workers clearing brush etc. Lake sites look nice, but sites 6,7,8& 9 are pretty good, quiet RV sites. Some levelling required, but doable. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Motorhome.

Accident waiting to happen. Kids on bikes and trikes flying around blind corners - in the wrong direction. Campers driving the wrong way around narrow, curved interior roads shrouded with trees trying to shoehorn into short, odd-angled sites. Trapped at departure by a series of vehicles blocking the road with no concern over check-out time. In fairness, the facility has plenty to offer, including a beach, boat dock and scenic sites with natural buffers between most campers. Plus, Houghton, Hancock and Calumet are rich in history that spills over into present day. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Day trip to Calumet puts you back in time with a downtown full of historic buildings that tell the boom-to-bust story of copper mining. Authentic Finnish fare at Kaleva Cafe in Hancock and Suomi Restaurant in Houghton. Excellent Wash Tub laundromat on Michigan and surprisingly clean and comprehensive Keewanaw Food co-op on Ethel St. in Hancock. Learn about the birth of pro hockey in the small but fascinating display in the lobby of Dee Arena in Houghton.

Nice little city park. Great value for the area. We called with short notice and got right in. They do accept reservations and will assign you a site when you call. No deposits needed. Pay attendant at a small kiosk at the park entrance. Very wooded park mostly on a hillside, as is the whole City of Hancock. Most sites are not level, so bring your chocks and plenty of leveling lumber. Some sites by the water, BUT... These are adjacent to the city beach parking area, so LOTS of traffic. Laundry facilities available. Overall, a very OK park and the best price we've seen this year. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Most of the new stores and development are on the south side of Houghton. Pats grocery store (nice large store) is about 1 mile uphill south of the park.
The City of Calumet is about 12 miles north of Hancock, and is a historical treasure! Read about the area first if possible, then visit Calumet. This was THE hub for copper mining and money!
We visited and took the Quincy mine underground tour a few miles north of Hancock. On a scale of 10, it gets a 3 from us, pretty disappointing.

We were looking for a low key place to stay for 2 rest days. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on weekdays.

This campground fit the bill. It was clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful and friendly. There was a wide variety of sites - outer loop sites were larger than inner loop. Some were very private. Some had views of Portage River and a couple were right on the river. Most sites had electric, a few had water. There was a dump station near the entrance. There was good AT&T and Verizon coverage. There was free WiFi - it was a bit slow and fastest near the bathrooms/laundry. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Motorhome.

There's a swimming beach a short walk from the campsites. Downtown Hancock is 2.5 miles and Houghton is 2.8 miles. Both had a variety of restaurants and places to visit.

Limited sites with both electric and water. We selected a site for the view along the river and it only had electric. We had to fill our tank and watch our water usage so we would not have to hook up again over the 4 days to fill up again. The site view was great but quite far from the bathroom and shower.
The wifi was okay but very slow. They used to have cable because the connections are still at the sites but do not work. We had 2 over the air stations to choose from.
We would stay again but would go for a site with electric and water next time. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice city park, lots of room and forested. Very reasonably priced for the area. Laundry facilities in the bath-house, had to look. Very convenient location to explore the area. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are small, with overhanging trees on many. Campground is across a highway from a gravel pit, lots of heavy truck noise. Many unsupervised children on bikes, lots of locals cruising through, which is a scary combination. This park does not take any credit cards, a fact not disclosed on their web site. Also no confirmation of reservation, just verbal. We called & reserved a site with electric & water, found no sites with water available on arrival. Gate attendant was very rude and unfriendly. I cannot recommend this park to anyone and would not stay here again. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overall, this is a nice park. The interior roads are on asphalt and the sites were on packed gravel and dirt. Some of the sites are more leveled then others. It took us a while to get level in our site. About 7 sites had Electric and Water, others had electric only and still others had neither. A very few sites had 50 amp, all the others had 20/30 amp service. The electric voltage was good, hovering about 123. Almost of the sites were back-ins. About a 1/3 of the sites could accommodate a large rig. The utilities were located at the appropriate place. Dump station with potable water was near the entrance to the park. There was a separate area for tent camping. There were two tiers to this park. The bottom tier had the lake view along with a boat launch area. The upper tier did not have a view of the lake. The lower tier was busier due to the launching of the boats. The bath house had 3 showers per sex. They were very clean especially since the campground was almost full. Cable was available for those that had electrical service. No Wi-Fi. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. We would come back to this park if we were in the area. We camped here with a 32 foot 5th wheel. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice alternative to the state park system. Only a few sites have water and just a handful of 50 amp sites. We were at the back of the large boat ramp parking lot with a nice view of the river. WiFi at our site was limited. had to sit at the picnic table to get any reception at all. Short walk to the beach area on the lake. Lots to do in the area. The Quincy Mine is a must do and get your pastries at Toni's in Laurium. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Motorhome.

I had to clean the plastic bottles out of the fire pit and there were lots of cigarette butts on the ground too. No sewer sites so okay for a few days. Didn't use shower facilities but they looked fairly clean. No shade at our site. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A few sites have waterway views, most don't. 50 amp service is available; however, you get 30 amps & water, or 50 amps and no water. Dump station is handy and easy to access. The city swimming beach is nearby, in walking distance. All roads are paved, and RV sites are level. Big rigs fit OK. Restroom/shower does have a washer/dryer and uses quarters. Boat launch is included as is free Wi-Fi. Cable TV at all sites, excellent channel offering. We shared water hookup (separate spigots) with another rig, but needed all of our hoses to hook up. Lots to see and do in the area -- good spot to make your headquarters! I would have rated it a 10 if there were sewer hook ups. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice city owned park. Little bit of a trick to find. On M203 just West of city beach. Like the others we stayed at site 51 on the river. Great view. Not to busy with boaters coming and going. Spacious site. Friendly staff. And yes they do take out of state personal checks. We camped at Hancock City Park in a Travel Trailer.
