We stayed at this campground for two nights on our way to Copper Harbor, MI. It was pretty disappointing that the pool was out of service but it was because no fault of theirs (closed because of health dept regulations- think Caddyshack). They instead offered wristbands to swim at the motel pool next door. Not the same as an outdoor pool but I'm not lowering my rating for that. The staff was very friendly. The campground main loops were blacktop. Lots were packed red gravel with grass and spacious. The campground is very wide open with almost no trees. This is primarily a motor coach spot and there weren't many families, at least not that we could see. The playground is a little lacking for families but no biggie. Everything was as expected or greater for our visit. - Done Roughing It

The campground is tucked behind a row of stores and services that provide all basic needs within a walk, bike ride or short drive.
Positives: asphalt roads (mostly); wi-fi is okay since it was up and down during my stay; not a lot of long term campers.
Negatives: Most sites are not level.
My site: Most sites are wide with a gravel red dirt pad and a grassy area. My site was one of the odd ones with mostly dirt and it faced my neighbors. The sewer connection was high which required me to monitor the hose when draining waste.
I would chose a different CG if I ever return to the area. - jnateg

I do not recommend this park for big rigs. You can get in here but 30 doesn't work in site 86 and the staff doesn't care. The office is staffed by kids and since this is a city park, customer service is not a concern. Open ground on the pedestal. Electrician will not come out to fix it because it is a weekend. Can't run the AC and lots of campfires so leaving the windows open is not a good idea.
Dirt/mud site with trees so no satellite lock. No cable either and OTA is spotty. Lots of big dogs that bark.
Interior roads are asphalt with huge deep potholes. - pcmike

Huge place. Shaded. Big rigs fine. Two girls in the office were very friendly and helpful. The 30-amp electricity did not work in the first two sites I pulled into, but it was fine in the one where I settled. Some sewer hookups are way too far away from the sites to use (i.e. Space 92). Some site pads are dirt, others paved. They all looked fairly level. My Verizon Hotspot worked fine. This is an okay place, but nothing special. I'd stay somewhere else next time. - Charles3

Very clean and also friendly people that check you in, loads of trees for shade. Nice bike trail right next to the park, nice river beach area for swimming. We have been there alot and will go back. - LD53

I picked this campsite from the reviews of all of western U.P. - it seemed to have the best overall reviews. I concur with them, it's a very well managed/maintained, clean, nice campground on the lake Michigamme with a decent beach and rental boats. We were there in off-season, so that meant few campers were there, and we got almost our pick of the sites - the best are in the loop just off the beach (48 to 53) where you look out on the lake.
Regarding other reviewer comments, see below - neither was a problems for us, but here is my take on these concerns:
Trains - yes, there are train tracks running right through the campground. (See the campsite map at bottom of their website). We noticed 2 trains in our 10-day stay, there were probably others. For the campsites adjacent to the tracks they are closer than it appears on the campsite map - really close. (This includes sites 1 to 6 in the big-rig section, and low 40s, and 18 to 21.) But for the loops for sites from upper 40s thru 50s to lower 60s - and the small site loop 26-36 , they are reasonably far enough away.
Bathhouse - The bathhouse is clean, but is small for the number of campsites, especially as there are many small sites that could only handle tent or popups without the in-unit option of full size RVs. This was not an issue for us due to being off-season, but I can imagine they could get crowded when full during the summer. - Jim n Lynn

It always depends what you are looking for in a campground. The positives are plentiful here. It's in a beautiful location right on Lake Michigamme with boats to rent (or bring your own). There is also fishing and swimming in the warm lake water. Big rigs? No problem. There is 50 Amp service, good wifi, and many sites with open sky for satellite. If you are looking for a traditional peaceful camping week, without chaos, this is a great place for you. Bring a book to read, and relax and recharge. - sse

We needed a half way point between Duluth and St. Ignace, and this park fit the bill. It is a well run park on the shore of Lake Michigamme. They have boat rentals and a nice beach. Wifi is very good. Yes, there is a railroad thru the park but it has very low usage. Nice back-in spot with 50 Amp service. - Tim and Susan

As detailed in previous postings, this is parking places off to the side of the main parking lot. 50 amp electric and nothing else but you can't beat the price, FREE. Just register at the casino. - lllkrob

This campground has electric only, but it's free! In addition, they give you $5.00 a day to stay there, and a free drink ticket. In my review I gave a cost of one dollar, as the form doesn't recognize free. It is a smaller casino, but we always have good luck there, and the staff is super friendly. - Northern Runner

This is a very nice and clean park. All 7 sites are long and level. Cell phone service was weak. For satellite you had to shoot between trees so it might be hard to get. Would stay here again when in area. - ds4006

BYOW: bring your own water. The water at the park is full of iron, tastes bad, looks bad, and will stain. The owner is a unique individual who built and maintains the park all by himself. And, it looks like it. After the initial creepy feeling I got meeting the man and seeing his treasures, I realized he is most likely harmless, just eccentric. The Wifi is worthless, the Fudge Factory is closed, there is no pool or other amenities other than the rock carvings and his collection of junk. There is, however, a nice beach right across the street.
The price is on the high side but negotiable, especially if you bring cash.
None of the roads or sites are paved, and the park becomes a little muddy after rain. We will not stay here again because of the water and other reasons. - The Penguin

This is an old school campground. The rest rooms are dark and only one stall had one roll of toilet paper. The drinking water was brown. Buy water before you get there. The price was cash only. WiFi was weak except for in the Library where you cannot find a light switch when dark! Our site had deflated balloons and used paper towels on the ground from the previous user. - PF Churchill

I was nervous to stay here after reading reviews but was pleasantly surprised. The water was full of iron, so plan ahead and fill your tanks if possible. The owner and his son were friendly and the camp ground was cute and across the street from a beautiful beach. I felt it was a little on the expensive side. I would stay here again. - slinke
