6 Parks near Munising, Michigan
Jul 2016 - $34.00
A small campground on Lake Superior just outside of downtown Munising. Water campsites are very nice with a great view of the Lake and beach access. Sites are good size and all have water and electric hookups. Keep in mind that some hookups are closer to the street and you may need a longer power cord or hose. Sites on both ends of water also have sewer and gravel parking pads. Some had no trees others had a few.
Sites that weren't on the water were also good size. Campers from these sites do tend to cut through water sites to get to beach so do not be surprised if someone walks through your site, especially near the picnic area.
Bathrooms (there are 2 bath houses) were kept clean and heated- did not use or look at showers since when I thought about it there was a line to use them.
Free Wi-Fi is available. Worked decent both at RV and on beach.
Ice cream bike drive through on both Fri and Sat night which was great for the kids since the selection in the camp store was small.
Very small playground- a baby swing and tall slide. - 5thatdrive

We opted for the better site along Lake Superior. We had a beautiful view of the sunset every night, well worth the extra dollars.
We had no problems with any of the hookups and the wifi worked well. We had several over the air channels but had to keep adjusting the antenna to keep the signal strong on the stations.
Site was level and gave us plenty of room. - John Borajkiewicz

We stayed here in a 23' class B MH - no slides or toad. Site had 50 amp only so we used a dogbone to hook up our 30 amp. Very nice folks on staff, beautiful setting and our site looked out over the BIG lake!! Had a drippy faucet at our site and reported to office - it had dug a foot deep hole. Hope they fix it ASAP! We would stay here again, Be careful - area around city has zero Verizon reception but at site 4 bars. Means you can't communicate if you're in the National park!!!! - KAZIMIRA

We're traveling for three months and seeing a wide variety of RV parks. This is the absolute worst we have ever seen. Park is far from town, other parks in the area are much closer. Park is a dustbowl. Dry dirt covers the entire park. Electric only sites. Water and sewer dump are 10-15 feet apart, and only one of each in entire park. Also observed other campers washing feet from fresh water fill hose. This is a serious health hazard. WiFi only works if you stand directly under the antenna at the bathhouse. Only two showers for men and two for women in the park and they were dirty most of the time. When WiFi issue was addressed with manager/owner, his attitude was "Well mine works here at the office". A promised follow-up never happened. If you're going to a primative, desolate, isolated park just to get away this place will work. If you're planning to see nearby sites and want a reasonably comfortable, clean park with some amenities, keep driving. As a retired fire chief, I'm also disappointed that the owner/manager would deceive the public with such filthy offerings. - Scenic Cruiser

This is the kind of place in the woods you want to bring your kids or grandkids for a week. It has the feeling of a campground from 50 years ago. Pretty little fishing and small-boat lake with "just okay" sandy beach. Rent paddleboats, canoes or kayaks. Playground with tetherball and a big sand volleyball court. The sites are a mixed bag, some tight, some spacious, some level, some not. My site only had 20 amp, so be sure to ask before arrival if you need 30. The WiFi only works right at the office, and Verizon cell and data service works on and off (mostly off) - one bar at best. AT&T data is "no service." Long trail through the woods to walk your dog. The park is about a 15 minute drive into Munising. This is a good place to relax in a setting pretty as a postcard. - Charles3

Great campground. Very friendly staff. Had a wonderful stay despite the UP mosquitoes! The road in was gravel and had a few potholes requiring you to drive pretty slow. If it hasn't rained, it is a bit dusty with the cars coming and going. The sites are generally pretty big with a lot of trees. Most of the campground is 20 amp with a few 30 amp. No water or sewer hookups, but the dump station and water source was easily accessible. Nice lake with kayaks and boats to rent. Play area for kids and a nice volley ball pit and net. The staff will deliver firewood to your site when you buy it. - Spizzer

Requested to move to a vacant site for better satellite signal and easier connection, they were reluctant to agree to a change. Laundry room is unusable, ceiling tiles missing with illegal electrical wiring exposed. Sewer connection is one foot above ground, making stinky slinky a challenge to empty. As we all know **** flows downhill. Pool looks nice and clean, sign indicates capacity of 70, we counted 12 last night and can't imagine 58 more in there! - JoAnn53

This was the 4th time I have camped at this site over the last 13 years. I won't stay here again after this last experience.
I tent camped and was offered a choice of 2 sites that were very small with no privacy at all, camping very close to other campers. I went in and asked for a site directly across from the site I was given that was more private and was told they could not allow it to be used until all the other sites were taken. I continued to press for another site and then was told about several others that were open after I was orginally told there were only 2 open. I took a site with electric and water in the back of the park that offered more room and trees between sites, backed to woods.
Cost me $41, which leads me to one of the reasons I won't stay there again, very expensive to pay $39 for a tent site even if it has electric I was not using. Also, if you camp at this campground you will be camping on dirt and gravel. There is virtually no grass at all. There are only 2 showers located in the ladies room. The water was not cold, but barely warm. Overpriced for sure, if you have an RV it might be a better experience. - anne36

We had a large back-in site. Our neighbors were separated by trees. If you're looking for a "woods" experience, this is the park for you. However, sites in the middle of the property seemed close together.
Although modern (newer), for the whole park they only provide two showers in each restroom of the single bathhouse. I had to wait for my morning shower. The showers were small and had no shelf to hold your soap/shampoo. A plastic chair was provided for each shower, but it took up most of the private dressing area. If you are a large person, I think you'd have a problem.
It was adequate, but an uninspiring experience. Our rate may have been higher than other posts because of the 4th of July weekend. - SnugBug1

This park is a gem in the wilderness. Quiet, beautifully treed sites right on AuTrain Lake. Nice little Songbird Trail Hike through the woods. Clean rest rooms. We took our canoe out on the lake and caught perch. Would definitely return. - Marsha D

No showers at this park... Open May 15 thru October 1 Fees Site Fee $16 - Federal Recreation Passes (Golden/America the Beautiful) are accepted. Some of these sites are reservable. We love this campground. Very shady remote but if you have Verizon you may get cell service. Vault toilets but clean when we were there. Very friendly hosts. Not many fish, at least we have not caught many, but a beautiful lake and real real pretty in the fall. Stayed here many many times. - toflake

This is a concessionaire operated campground within the Hiawatha National Forest on the Upper Peninsula. Considered "primitive" but sites are nice, private with lots of room. Water pump available at entrance. Vault toilets, no showers. Toilets are very clean and kept that way by the camp hosts. Whole park very clean, no trash seen. Lake front sites available, some with access to launch kayak or tie up boat near your site. Firewood for sale at camp host site or can use the "down and dead" rule. Generators allowed but not after 10pm. Paved road. All sites are shaded as you are in the forest. Very relaxing. Fishing in lake allowed but need license. Fire rings at all sites. Camped here for 4 weeks. Will go back there again. - micwtx

Very nice, clean park with gravel roads and gravel pad at site. The rest of the site was sand and grass. Several pine trees throughout the park. They have a camp store where you check in and a small lodge/bar that serves great local beers and fantastic food, the servers are very friendly. They have some pull-thru sites and several back-in sites. Some of the back-in sights are very tight for a placing a 36' 5er because of the placement of the trees, but we managed, other sites are more open. Wifi is available in some areas, Verizon coverage is non-existent, you can find an open spot through the trees for satellite if you have a portable dish. Laundry area was clean but small, 2 washers and 2 dryers. Overall a great place and very enjoyable; highly recommended. - AstroDave

Lovely quiet park halfway between Manistique and Munising. Level gravel site and nicely shaded. Decent spacing between sites. Park host sells wood at campground prices, but loads of wood for sale outside the park by private individuals at less than half the price. Nice walking path behind the park, away from everything so we could let our dog run and get some exercise. Only complaint (not about the park) is complete lack of Verizon service. Park has iffy wifi, satellite so doesn't work well when it's rainy. - Phoenixbird

We stayed here just a couple nights in order to go the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, an easy 40 mile drive. At this price, this campground is a real find. The owner recently extended the length of all the sites to 70 feet, and they are all perfectly level. Because sites have been extended, the sewer connection could require an extension, depending on how deep into the lot you park. Otherwise, utilities worked great. There is no cable, and satellite may or may not get a good signal because of the many trees. The owner is currently studying which sites need better satellite access. The onsite lodge has restaurant and bar. We had a rib dinner that was good, not great. A lot of locals eat there. The onsite store had limited RV and snack supplies. We liked it here and would definitely return. Location is near several forest service campgrounds with hiking and lakes. Also nearby are trails for ATV and ORV. - MissMyGolden
