9 Parks near Houghton, Michigan

Superb park with waterfront views at every site. Only problem is there aren't enough spots; we would have stayed more than two days if there had been a cancellation. Park so you have a view of the water, forward, backward, whatever. When arriving, do NOT turn at Houghton Canal Road: no park access despite the advice of some mapping programs. Lots to do in area but don't miss the Quincey Copper Mine tour ($19 for seniors). - Mtmoi

The signage to the office is poor. When you turn in, do not stop at the first building. Go on down the road. The campground is terraced so everyone has a view of the water. Unfortunately it was designed as back-in sites so your windshield is not facing the water. Each site has a covered picnic table and another seating bench. The campground was quiet and we enjoyed our stay. We would camp here again. - Quilter99

Site 15 is not level although all the other sites appear to be level. This site is pretty short and the rear tires will be off the ground if you have a big rig. Bring lots of boards to prevent that from happening. Large plants have grown up around the hookups, so you may need a saw also.
Although this park is over looking a river, none of the sites face the river. Be careful with directions getting here from some GPS units. You cannot get in from Canal Street. That is permanently blocked. As stated in the other reviews, this is a small park all paved in asphalt. One row is next to a road, so expect some noise. Wifi is fair. - pcmike

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. - AlaskaJack

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. - dsvt

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. - John Borajkiewicz

One of my favorite campsites with great views of Lake Superior and sunsets. Spacious sites. Staff was very helpful and gave us extension cord as electrical
Boxes far away. Walk down to see lighthouse , easy drive to copper mines and around beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula. - IowaGirl

Great state park on Lake Superior. Sunsets were amazing. Sites are level and spacious. Bring an extension cord as the power was 75 feet away from the site. They are improving the bathrooms, but the existing ones are clean with plenty of hot water. Staff and campground hosts were friendly. We stayed in site 82, two nights so that we could take a day trip to Copper Harbor. We cannot wait to return to this beautiful park. - Glory Bee

We were disappointed to learn that we could only stay one night, as all sites were reserved for a music festival weekend. Only the camp sites on the lake have great views, and we would try to return for one of those sites. - AluminumCloud

Sunset Bay RV Resort is in a beautiful location. The road into the park is narrow and gravel, but we had no problems with our 40' fifth wheel. The roads inside the park are narrow and could be problematic for long rigs. The sites for RVs are not along the shoreline. All the shoreline sites are tent sites. Overall, a nice park in a beautiful part of the Upper Peninsula. - N9ID

This campground is located on the shores of Lake Superior and has without a doubt one of the most beautiful and scenic views in the State of Michigan. The campground is clean and well run with the only drawback being no sewers; of course, there is a dump station. A real plus is the free WiFi: somewhat slow at times but overall a surprise in such a remote location. Shore power was good and drinking water was excellent. We stayed 3 nights and very much enjoyed our stay. Would rate it a 10 but felt I could not do so because of the lack of sewers. - leferen

What a beautiful spot for a campground! All of the sites are a few seconds walking distance from the Lake Superior shoreline. You can walk as far as you want in either direction along the shore, - a rocky shoreline at the campground. Yes, the sunsets are beautiful. The washrooms are plain but very clean. The three shower units are self contained with toilet, sink as well as shower. The sites are acceptably level, relatively spacious and there are lots of trees. I was surprised and pleased to have wireless internet available. - Stan Wigg

We stayed here in our 23' Class B MH - no slides or toad. When we pulled in, we thought we'd made a big mistake, because a long good gravel entrance road, then it was a bit dog eared - no attendant and we were greeted by a nice neighbor lady who pointed to the site we had been assigned via our telephone call. WE FELL IN LOVE WITH THE PLACE! My wife found a super lode of Lake Superior rocks (on nearby lake shore)and could have spent hours filtering the stones, but kept just a few. Rest rooms and showers were neat and clean, but a bit cold (unheated) in the 55 degree temp at night and morning. Laundromat had 2 driers and 3 washers $2 per load (honor system). If you ever wanted to "camp" in a motorhome, this is the place! A rugged, but superb setting!
The owner drove by in his dune buggy like vehicle - we flagged him and paid him and got great advice on where to go when we headed to Copper Harbor. Our site had water and electric (30 amp) - I believe all were 30 amp. Place is named after its sunset and it is beautiful! We would stay here again. - KAZIMIRA

The campground is about 8 miles from a small town with no services. You have to negotiate almost a mile of rough dirt road to get to the campground. Sites are very rough. No pads. Not even gravel. We were parked on grass. We were near the office and couldn't connect to the wifi. The lake is visible but only one site is actually on it. Road through the campground is dirt/gravel. Very narrow, be careful. There is an office with a number to call if you need something. Never saw anyone in the office. Restrooms rough. Only looked in after one had obviously been used. We were disappointed in the RV Campground given the reviews. Again, very rough and not well maintained. - chris4499

Last year's reviewer pretty much hit it on the head. When we arrived, our reserved spot was occupied, but the owner put us in another OK. It is an old campground, but clean and scenic. We did not use the bathroom/shower, but when I checked one, the floor was soaked from all of the showers. The owners grandson tore around on an ATV: annoying, but otherwise quiet and serene. Good location for touring local sights. - renodick

We stayed here for one night. Got a lakeside site with electric. It was wide, grassy, with table and fire ring. Lots of families and kids. Quiet at night. A bit of traffic noise. Would stay here again. - Wyboo

Very nice and clean. Nothing like the last review. The locals were friendly and helpful. There is a resort next door were the kids rented a row boat for only $20.00 for all day. I would come back. - jmc

Great place to stop for an overnight or short stay. The 12 campsites are located along the edge of the casino parking lot. All are paved, back-in sites with a picnic table and grass in between, water, sewer, 30 amp power, good wifi, and a trash can. We also got a coupon for a free drink and $5 casino money everyday. There is enough green space around the property to walk a dog. The bathrooms inside the casino are very nice and there is also a bowling alley, indoor pool that campers can use, and a restaurant. The area seemed safe as it is well lit, patrolled by security, and only a short distance from the casino. We would definitely stay here again. - JoyceM

Paved, level back-in sites with good grass spacing, picnic table, full hookups, all for $20 night - and you get $5 in free play and a drink coupon each day. Join the player's club and get another $10 in free play. No cable or OTA TV, but no restrictions to satellite. The hotel WiFi worked well in site 10 most of the time, and Verizon cell/data worked well. Friendly casino staff and decent restaurant. The only drawback to staying here is that there's not much in the area, otherwise a great stay. - Meanderman
Jul 2016 - $20.00
Nice place to stay for a few days. The $5 coupon & free drink per person daily brings the actual daily charge down to zero, until you play the machines. They are not what I would call "loose". Although they advertise cable they don't have it. Could not get any channels on the antenna either. We stayed in site 11 and WiFi was good. Although they don't take reservations I have never seen this park full. - flnomad

Excellent views of the bay at Sand Point just on the North side of Baraga, MI at the lighthouse. All sites have 30 amp service but no water or sewer hookups. Dump station is available. Sites along the waterfront are $20/night and the inland sites (still a lakeview but across the road) are $15. Everything is first come first served. All sites are grass with a fire pit and picnic table. Roughly 2/3 of the sites are waterfront. There are very few trees except for a small grove of pines near the center of the waterfront sites. All roads are smooth and paved.
This seems to be a local secret since the state park nearby was quite busy but this gem of campground was nearly empty. When you enter, turn towards the marina to pay the manager. There is a house and a garage with a drop box for the registration papers, otherwise the manager will come to your site for payment.
There is a boat ramp and excellent spots at the lakefront sites to launch a kayak. Fishing is excellent around the marina plus there is a small pond near the rear of the campground. There is free Wi-Fi all around the park. Wi-Fi antennas are visible at several points. We got 2 Mb download speed but very few other campers in the park.
The website is old and outdated. There are many pieces of information that are not accurate as of 2015. The website says rates are $8 per night but it's $20. There are discounts for tribal members. Weekly rates are $100 per week on the waterfront and $65 for inland. - Craig H

Clean, clean, nice grassy site with shade. Good 30 Electric. Right on Hwy41, so, yes busy traffic, but easy to get to. Would try to get an inside site. Traffic less at night. Did not see or hear a train. Wi-Fi mostly OK. - USA16RVer
Jul 2010 - $25.00
Easy access next to US41. Some noise from the highway and railroad line immediately behind the park, but it didn't bother us. Interior roads are paved. Sites are grass. Some sites very shady, but the site we stayed on had a few trees. Sat TV was no problem at our site and Verizon Wireless had full bars service. About half of the RV sites have 30 amp electric. You may need an extension cord to reach the pedestal. Water is available at only a few places in the park. Good central sewer dump location. Keweenaw Peninsula is beautiful. Nearby casino with RV park. - eaglessoc

I downgraded my rating from last year because I reserved a pull thru site and they did not have mine available when I got there. Also, the traffic noise from the highway seemed to be worse then last year. The south section of campground was closed so it got a little busy in the north section. I was surprised how many campers there were, again reservations not essential unless you want a pull thru. A good place for base camp. - Tom51
