We were here the week after the 4th. Nice campground on Munising Bay (Lake Superior). We had a lakefront site that was all sand! I would've preferred grass, but it was OK. We were here after a heavy rain. Lots of standing water on the roads and on some sites. Some time spent with a grader and some gravel would do wonders! Water and electric hookups were in good shape. Brand new shower house and dump station this year! Perfect campground for seeing the area. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring kayaks to tour Grand Island! Or rent a pontoon boat. Along with all the other tours offered.

View of Lake Superior and sunsets were fabulous. Very accessible to boat tours and National Park visitors Center. Site under trees, so could not use satellite. Great wi-fi. Limited 50 amp sites. Level, pull thru site. Lake side sites were adequate, not spacious. Tent sites long way from shower building. Very popular, so need reservations in advance. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shipwreck glass bottom boat tour, Pictured Rocks boat tours offered unique experiences. Bob's IGA in town for groceries.

Great family campground right on Lake Superior. You need to make reservations well in advance, particularly if you want a lakefront site. Apparently full hookup sites 88 - 100 were added a couple of years ago and they are much narrower than the older lake front sites. While not obvious on the on-line park map they are all different sizes - some very narrow. Our site 95 was narrow but had a bush on the patio side that helped with privacy. Site 96 was even narrower - at one point during our 6 day stay a trailer in that site extended their awning & it was about 12 inches from the side of our motor home. However, the lakefront sites are well worth it - the views are incredible. Our fire ring was full of old ashes, apparently the park staff, unlike other parks we have been to, doesn't clean out the fire ring so we had to fill 2 trash bags with ashes before we could use the fire ring. The park offers "free Wi-Fi" - maybe we were too far away from the source but we could never stay connected to their Wi-Fi for any length of time. Our Verizon MiFi worked fine. Our DirecTV dish worked after moving further back in our site. We would return if ever in the area again. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Pictured Rocks Boat Tour was incredible. Lots of waterfalls in the area.

New waterfront sites, 88 thru 100, all back-in with 30/50 amp service, sewer, and water, gravel, new grass planted, new trees. Showers and restrooms are sparkling clean (new). Dump station appears new. The new sites are mere steps from the beach and the 50 degree water of Lake Superior. Grand Island across the strait. No cable and HDTV is bare-bones, 4 channels with one network station. Easy access to and from the campground, and the host was friendly and helpful. This wasn't a good time of the year for mosquitoes and midges, in swarms, everywhere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return when in the area. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Must do the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Plan to visit Munising Falls, Miner's Falls; pickup the "Discover Munising Waterfalls & Lighthouses" pamphlet at the visitor center. The Pictured Rocks Cruise is great. You just can't see it from the trails like you do from the boat. Pick a day when the water isn't bumpy...lots of seasick folks on one excursion this week.

We were not impressed with this campground. The interior roads are in bad shape, with lots of pot holes. The area had a significant amount of rain prior to our arrival and many of the sites were under water. Since there was very little, if any, gravel on the sites the sites very sloppy wet and muddy. The restrooms need to be updated and a good cleaning! After looking inside the restroom, there was no way we planned to use those facilities. We did not check out the showers. If we were to visit this area again I doubt we would stay here. But if we did, we would use the full hookup sites since they looked to be in much better condition compared to the site we stayed on. We had Verizon service but did not try our Verizon Hot Spot. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a fairly rustic campground. The staff were friendly and helpful at check-in. Some of the roads are paved, but after a rain storm there was some standing water. Our site was grass and fairly level, we had a sewer hook up, but not all sites do. Utilities are side by side, so make sure you bring enough to reach. Big rig access was fair. Fairly quiet, but there was some road noise, plenty of space for our towed, lots of grass, fire ring and picnic table. The bathrooms were clean, but old. There was no laundry. Pet friendly and a wonderful beach to walk your pets on. Wi-Fi and cell were good. There are food stores and some local restaurants in Munising, and lots of sightseeing close by. This is just a plain and simple City Park, it's very popular and the water view sites get booked up very quickly, so plan ahead, it's well worth it! This place is all about the view, we were steps from Lake Superior and a beach. Wonderful views during the day and lovely sunsets at night. We would stay here again.  We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Motorhome.

You can't beat the view of Lake Superior at this park! Some sites actually on the lake, and access to the beach. It was wonderful. The park should consider treating the road, as it was very dusty every time someone drove through, and the Wi-Fi signal wasn't too dependable. It's just west of the downtown area, not too far from all the touristy stuff. Explore the local waterfalls, tour the rocks from the water, and grab dessert at the Falling Rock Cafe (the Munising Marvel sundae is exceptional). The park is nice, no trouble getting in and out with a big rig, and the owners were friendly and helpful. We will definitely be returning to the area and staying here again!

This park offers an amazing view of Lake Superior. Book EARLY to get a lakeside spot. They have a new bath house that is updated and an "old" one that is worn. They kept the grounds and bathrooms neat and clean. If we are ever back in the UP we will definitely camp here. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Pictured rocks boat tours and sunken ship glass bottom boat tours. Also one of the top beaches in the US.

Rate listed is for 50 amp & water site. Per the staff, the Full hookup sites are reserved well ahead of time - often in October of the previous year. Location is what really makes this a great park. Not only is it on Lake Superior, but it is only a short drive to Munising and the Pictured Rocks National Park. Verizon cell service & MiFi service both worked here as did our roof mounted satellite. Park could be greatly improved if someone were to come through and re-align the utilities. We saw some folks with 3 hoses connected together to reach the water hookups! The power hookups were also out of position in most of the sites. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is right on Lake Superior and we had a site with full hookups, but it wasn't very level. Our end was more organized but the other end of the park had sites that were hodge podge and people were crammed in there. Some of the sites were far from the water and needed extra long hookups. We stayed one night and the sunset was spectacular but feel it was a bit over-priced. It was on the highway but the noise quieted down in the evening.

Beautiful little park!! A true gem by Lake Superior! Lots of people and lots of kids, kind of on the noisy side but everyone was having a great time. This was our 3rd park staying in Michigan and we think it was a nice stay and a fairly good location. Had it not been at Lake Superior though there wouldn't have been much reason to stay here. We would return, but would try to go when it isn't the height of tourism season. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed two nights in this campground, paying $28 for one campsite, and $32 for the second. The second campsite was a pull-through and was in closer proximity to the lake and thus more costly. This is a nice municipally owned campground, right on a bay in Lake Superior. Grand Island is in front of the bay, so the waters are very protected. Many campsites are right on the water, and people had their kayaks and canoes pulled up on the shore. Campers gather at the shore (or on the water in their boats) to watch the lovely sunset each night. The campground itself is plain and simple, the sites are level and the utilities easy to reach. Some of the sites are shaded. This campground is very popular and many campers reserve their spots in advance. Call at the last minute (as we did) and be prepared to move from night to night. Munising is the town on the western edge of the spectacular Pictured Lakes National Lakeshore. The boat and kayak tours of the beautiful Pictured Rocks cliffs leave from Munising. There is also the lovely Grand Island to visit as well. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is located in a very beautiful setting on Lake Superior, just west of Munising. Roads and sites are dirt/gravel with some sites being on grass. Our site backed to the lake and had full hookups and was level. Many sites are just water/electric, and the water connection is at the road, so it could be some distance. The views are just spectacular, especially at sunset. There is some road noise and the interior roads can kick up some dust. Many sites are shaded but it is not heavily wooded, so we were able to use our satellite dish. Wi-Fi is free and is very fast. What a great place to stop.

The location and good restrooms/showers is about all this campground has to recommend. Office (old and junky looking) was never open and we saw attendant only once. Two pieces of playground equipment are old and worn. Sites are grass, but fairly level. The location on Lake Superior gives this park a lot of potential, but it needs updating and to be better maintained. The $37 for full hook-up is a bit over-priced compared to other places. In spite of the negatives, we would stay here again just because of the view. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great location close to Pictured Rocks boat cruise and Munising attractions. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms are in need of updates, but were clean. We stayed in spot 8 which was very spacious and right on the lake. Would have given it a higher rating had it not been for the road noise. We would stay here again but would sacrifice power for the seclusion of the tent sites. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.
