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. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Motorhome.

We were pleasantly surprised with this campground in the middle of Marquette! Complete with a nice lake, enjoyed sitting around the campfire and chatting with a Michigan resident. Restrooms were small (1 shower) so be prepared to wait your turn. Sites were large with table and fire ring. Preparation was underway for a weekend music festival...betting it would be lots of fun. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice city campground on the outskirts of Marquette. It's a great location to explore the area from. Roads into the campground are paved. Sites can be paved, grassy or dirt...it just depends upon where you are. The hook ups are not laid out conveniently on some sites, so bring plenty of hose, sewer pipe and electric cords. Campground has WiFi, but is difficult to pick up in some parts of the campground. Verizon 4G coverage was strong and awesome. 6 OTA TV channels can be picked up. Major stations were NBC and FOX. Some road noise can be heard, but nothing really disturbing. If we were in the area, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Motorhome.

Roads are just wide enough for a big rig but some sites have tree challenges backing in. Utilities all worked well. WiFi only works close to office. Sites are pretty level. Great location to see Marquette and area. Trails run along park for easy walking or biking. Very peaceful during the week but filled up on weekend with families. Definitely would stay here again.

Be sure to read the history of the area and go to visitor center to get info on the historic buildings, museums, etc. The area warrants a couple days to explore.

Very nice park in a nice setting. We had an electric only pull-through site but it was tight getting in/out. Staff is basically college aged running the office and are not always knowledgeable concerning big rigs. We specifically asked if Wi-Fi was available and told yes only to find that the site we were assigned would "probably not" pick up the signal (after we were set up). Other than that it was a nice stop and we would return if in the area only we would ask in advance if the Wi-Fi worked at that site. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Motorhome.

Got a last minute cancellation for the 4th of July weekend. Typical City park, crowded on the holidays and weekends. Nice spacious, paved sites and the campers respected the quite hours. WiFi reception at the site and good cell phone coverage from Verizon. There is a small swimming beach at the campground. Playground for the kids and lots of hiking and biking trails in the area. Rate reflects full hookups. There is an additional $5 charge to make a reservation on-line. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for 4 nights but had to leave because of the Hiawatha Music Festival; no sites available. We had a site backed up to the maintenance shed of the local University, and yes, they do start their heavy equipment early in the morning. We also could not get satellite service due to trees and could only get 3 channels on TV. We did enjoy reruns of "All in the Family", "Mash", "Rockford Files", etc! Overall a good place to stay and enjoy the sightseeing in Marquette where there is a lot of history. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Motorhome.

We really loved this park! The sites are very roomy, not at all like the typical private campground. The people who work here are very friendly and the park is clean. We were in site 65 in the back corner, surrounded by tall pine trees. Best of all, since we didn't have a car, the city bike paths were available to go into town or all around the county and even across the UP if you want. The city, the beach, and nearby Presque Isle are all within reach. Their Internet was okay, and our Verizon worked very well. We would definitely come back here.

Stayed here 5 days during 4th of July weekend at site 56. Very large sites, mostly wooded and quiet. Predominately grass sites with some paved. Tree location can challenge your back-in skills. Avoid the full hookup sites near the back fence if you can. The light industry businesses start up their front loaders around dawn during work days. Over the holiday weekend there was a heavy mix of tent and RVers. Some regular visitors put up makeshift 'group' sites, taking advantage of the large, somewhat undefined spaces and land than allowed. After the holiday, everything returned to normal, and the park showed its other face - quiet with most tents gone. Rated lower than a 10 based on lack of W-iFi and strange location of utilities; some sites require 3 lengths of sewer pipe and two or more lengths of water hose. Come prepared! Rated higher for check-in, visual appeal, location convenience, strong Verizon data link. Rate includes online reservation fee. Absolutely would stay here again. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park located on a lake within city limits. The site we had with full hookups was paved and spacious with lots of room for our 35 feet and two slides. The sites are not very close together so there are no neighbors breathing down your neck. There are many beautiful tall pines in this park. Television was very limited and there is no WiFi available, perhaps the only two drawback to this park. Staff is courteous and helpful, maintaining the facilities well. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Travel Trailer.

Marquette Tourist Park is attractive, with many wooded sites. There are bike paths and hiking trails, as well as a playground and beach. The bathrooms were very clean, and the showers were hot. No WIFI available, but Verizon 4G was strong. Friendly attendants, and the park is well patrolled. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Travel Trailer.

It was very quiet while we were there on their last weekend open for the season. Maybe too quiet, but it was nice. They have nicely wooded sites. Electric (and especially water) connections were a little far so you may need extra hose, but the facilities are clean and very well maintained. They have excellent drinking water available and the price is reasonable. Very close to town, but feels miles out. I liked it here very much. We camped at Marquette Tourist Park in a Motorhome.
