Loved the park! Level sites with cement pad. Showers were older, but very clean. It was 25 cents for 2 1/2 minutes, but that was ok. Water was hot and a great idea to conserve water. Bathrooms although older were always VERY clean and neat. The owner is fantastic and does all he can to make you comfortable. Very near Iron Mountain and other scenic areas. We weren't looking for campground entertainment, just a good, safe, clean area....and it fulfilled our desires. We did not elect to have the full hook-up, but they have a "Honey Wagon" that comes around once a week or you can dump on your way out. The dump area is level and easy access. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

Tour Iron Mountain Mine if possible, but wear good shoes...it is a walking tour and lasts about 35 minutes. Ground not level..may be a challenge for some to navigate. Not a place to use a walker or other assistive devices. We checked out the local museums and they were small with great information about the history of the areas. Interesting insight into our early miners.

We were only there for one night. I think the transient sites were full and they SQUEEZED us in with the full time campers. It didn't feel like our presence was appreciated. Manager was very nice and helpful, he helped us back into our site but also backed us over the neighbors lawn ornament. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were in the overflow area right near the office. We had no sewer hook up, but there is someone at the park who will come to your site and pump your tanks for $5. Showers are .25cents for 2 1/2 minutes. Owner is very nice and accommodating!! The beach.... well there wasn't much of one and The Menominee River is more of a brown water. We all swim and came home with no bugs! We also rented kayaks it's a nice place to kayak. Also up toward the dam there is a current, you had to paddle fast and hard....a fun challenge! There are no river spots available to campers they are all filled up with people who "buy" the spot. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

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 was our first stay in a private park. The place was very nice. The park owners are very helpful and very friendly. The are a LOT of seasonal people here and the only drawback is that you are not able to get near the water with your rig. There is a small swimming area on the river but other then that there is a pond near the play ground. The bathrooms and laundry areas are very clean and are kept up daily. There is propane onsite and pretty reasonable too. The only bad is that unless you are near the office, the wifi signal is weak. We really loved the place and will return 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.
