We stayed here over the 4th. Way too many fireworks. Looked like a family camping place. Lots of permanents and regulars. Level site. No wifi. Close to town. Host was awesome!!! We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

This was our first visit to the UP. Had an excellent time. We will not stay during the 4th should we travel this way again. Loved the cool weather in July.

This park had some surprising positives. First, the managers (owners?) were unbelievable. Anything they could do to help and with a truly positive attitude. I saw the walk or bike or carry equipment past our site multiple times a day. The park was immaculate. The most pleasant surprise was a large park-like addendum with a pond, a bit of woods and more than enough space to run the dog without bothering anybody else.

Unfortunately, the riverfront was cheek by jowl with seasonal people and park models, and there was no access. We would return, and considered changing our plans to stay longer. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

Iron Mountain was a lovely little city with a couple of good grocery stores, restaurants, and an unbelievable Italian Deli (Crispigna's). The Grocery store in Niagara, WI (Marcouiller's) has a great meat department and prices, although produce is truly sad. Park owners can give further information and recommendations.

Very nice campground on the Menominee River. Paved interior roads and sites. Good wifi. Pleasant owner-lovely area. Only stayed one night-would stay again. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is very clean and appears to be well-managed. We were only passing through so ended up staying on the upper level of the campground. Campsites are narrow. Roads were difficult to maneuver with our 40' MH. Manager had to have other campers move their vehicles so we could get around the corners. Park is full of seasonal rigs. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

Such a memorable place! The park is so picturesque and peaceful, sitting on the Menominee River. Many seasonals, but everyone is so friendly! The sites are a nice size, and the owner guides you in himself! The WiFi signal was quite weak, but that was our only issue, if you consider it one. We drove a mile down the road and climbed the Pine Mountain Ski Jump, visited the beautiful Veterans Memorial, ate a delicious lunch at Legends (at the ski lodge), and hiked along the Piers Gorge (a short drive to Norway, MI). Bring a raft and float down the river in the campground, it's a great place to relax! We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful location, squeaky clean, and as friendly and helpful as you will ever find. Call ahead to make sure a site is available. You won't be sorry if you need a couple of nights rest. I didn't see motorhomes, but I'm sure they have the sites available. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We are fairly new to RV’ing and so far Rivers Bend was the best campground we have found. The owners Willie and Will were fantastic and they taught me some valuable lessons in backing up our 41 foot fifth wheel and maneuvering in tight spaces. I have been using those lessons successfully since. The grounds are immaculate and quiet and if you have a chance to stay here, by all means do. I just wish all campgrounds where this nice and the staff as friendly and helpful. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The owner makes this campground a very nice place to stay. Both he and his son goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and walks you to your site and helps get you backed in. The WiFi is over loaded so don't count on it. We use a verizon air card and it was okay. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A beautiful place on the river. Lots of seasonal residents, but plenty of room. The owner could not have been nicer. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I agree with prior posts--the owner was wonderful. He walked us to our site and helped us park. The sites are on the small side, very close to your neighbors, but the surrounding trees make it easy to forget the neighbors are there. Everyone was friendly in the sites near us. We would definitely stay here again. It was a beautiful drive to the campground as well. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a pretty park located on a river and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The river sites are all permanent. Only a few of the transient sites have sewer hookups and the sites are close together. We had a nice spot under the trees with excellent cable and Wi-Fi. The bathrooms and laundry are older but clean. The owner has to be one of the nicest guys around. Unlike a previous post, we found that everyone at the park was friendly too. Most of the permanents have been coming to this park for generations. We would definitely return if in the area. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

The staff was extremely helpful in making sure that we got into our site. All the visitor sites had concrete pads for the picnic tables (and the tables were on the pads). Most of the sites are seasonals but they are all very clean and presentable. The location is hilly and very picturesque. We definitely will return. No credit cards but will take a check.

Very friendly staff and it is clear that owner takes pride in park and keeps it up and continues to make improvements. Large number of seasonals who are very friendly. Large number of transient sites. Cable and Wi-Fi very dependable with good signal. We were guided to our site and when we left owner came out and said thanks for staying. We will definitely return. Lots of inexpensive tourist things to do in the area with close proximity to Wisconsin. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a good overnight campground. We did not have sewer, but did have a pull through and the dump station was convenient on the way out. The Wi-Fi was good, but we were close to the office. Grounds are well kept. There are a LOT of permanent rigs on site. Do not know much about area, but the electric was good and the cable TV was good. There is a river, but there are sites on every foot of it. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

This was an excellent campground to stay at. Most sites are seasonal but there are also several spots for campers just passing through. We were here for three days. It was a nice central location to the various sites (Porcupine Mts- 2 hrs, Bond Falls- 1 hour, Wisconsin- 15 minutes). Had some big pull throughs. We had cable TV and an excellent Wi-Fi signal. The hosts were extremely friendly. They seemed to take great pride in their park. They paid great attention to cleanliness in their park. Would definitely stay again.
