5 RV Parks near Ontonagon, Michigan

As others have said, this is a gem of a campground. Township run, but do not let that deter you. It is by far nicer than many private campgrounds where we have stayed. And the price is unbeatable. We had a spot parallel to Lake Superior. The views were amazing! We stayed 5 nights and I wished I could stay more.
We had site 30 and it was a little frightening pulling in with the soft sand, but my truck has 4 wheel drive. Getting out was a little harder, since a class A decided to pull in next to us and crowded the side closest to where i had to pull out.
There are similarly nice lakefront sites in the "new" section but they are often full. - Goin 4 Broke

We have stayed here before and keep coming back - there is nothing like camping right on the shore of Lake Superior, listening to the waves and watching the sun set over the water. Brought family members here for their first visit and planned to stay two days. They loved it so much we just stayed here the whole week. There are times when magic happens and you get to see the northern lights shimmering over Lake Superior. Stayed up late one night and saw them - what a wonderous sight! They have made improvements here over the past several years, adding new bathhouse, more camping spots and a playground. These are water and electric only sites. Very nice park!! - Nautical Wheelers

Did not stay on lake front (too windy)but we were able to see lake from our pit fire. Campground staff was very helpful they even called restaurant to find out if they had grilled fish besides deep fried for us. And Roxey's did. Campsite was fine. We noticed that their playground was very nice, they even had two wheelchair swings--one for a child and another one for adult. Seldom see that offering. They have four disc golf baskets. Wifi worked great. Beach area access was right there and enjoyed watching the sun set both nights. We forgot our flashlight but walk way to rest room/ shower building was well lit. The only very tiny thing wrong was that the outside office building does not light up their directions well for late comers. - Wi Gal

I love this place. The flies were out and about, but we still had a great time. The camp hosts were great, they serve free coffee and hot chocolate from 730-10 everyday. plenty of good sights in the area (waterfalls,hiking). - Bob806

Stayed on site 11 which was on the rocky shore of Lake Superior and had vegetation separating the campsite from lake with a little trail to the water. The rock is big flat sheets you can walk and lay on but it can be sharp and slippery. It was beautiful to sit on them and watch the sunrise. Campground was packed every night of the week but never was loud. Campsites were all decent, small and no privacy, though, but still loved it! Bring long extension cords cause the electric boxes are oddly placed. No sewer hook up at the campsites but they have water fill and dump at the park entrance. We have a 21 ft hybrid camper that fit nice on site 11. They had the bathroom and shower buildings tore down when we were there but they had those rentable RV type bathrooms set up which I was told were nice. We used our camper plumbing sparingly to last 5 days. Lake Superior is amazing--crystal clear, and it was a surprisingly comfortable temp for swimming. Our favorite activity was the beach! The stars were unbelievable. Skies so clear! I loved being next to the shore and hearing the waves as we fell asleep. The flies were horrible at times, though. Definitely didn't want to sit at the campsite during the day or we would get attacked. At night and in the morning we had no bug problems. Pack fly swatters, and a screen tent is almost a must.
The Porkies are a beautiful place anyone that appreciates nature must see. - cnacamper

If you are fortunate enough to get a site on Lake Superior, this is a great place to camp. We were on site 25 which was the best for a larger rig, but we had to reserve it 6 months to the day ahead of time. There are only about 6 of these prime lakeside sites so you have to book them early for summer weekends. We loved it and spent hours enjoying our rock waterfront and swimming in Lake Superior. The sun doesn't set over the water but you still get a beautiful sky. And we also were treated to a meteor shower and Northern Lights!
The majority of the sites don't even have a view of the lake as they are on the other side of a tree line. They are currently putting in a new shower building which will be very nice. However, they tore the old one down and brought in 2 trailers with 5 toilet/shower combo rooms to replace it. This was just not enough for 400+ campers and the poor park workers were struggling to keep them clean. Most of the time, they weren't too good so we were happy to use the bathroom in the camper. Of course, without water and sewer hookups, we had to haul water and conserve.
I would definitely come back especially if we could camp lakeside again. - MazoCak

We stayed there for 5 nights. The grounds were spacious and well kept.
The bathrooms were dirty. Floors had not been cleaned in a long time and were not cleaned while we were there. Showers also not cleaned. I would not stay there again. - arkansas_jeannie

These folk were vague on the phone and pleasant but vague in person. The very minimum was done to maintain the park. Lawn was mowed, but areas around posts and rocks hadn't been trimmed all season. Downed branches from storms past were cleaned up, and piled in the middle of the tenting area, which now had a few seasons of weeds growing around them, and there were assorted abandoned vehicles and machinery at the far edges of the park. Some of the sites were too narrow for slide outs, although very long. It was hit or miss, basically, but park was not full, so there was choice. Electricity and water were fine. One permanent trailer was a bit sketchy looking. So basically, it was fine for a few days, but glad we were not staying longer. - Sheryl E

Nice, basic campground. Sites are grass, moderately level; plenty long for 40' coach and tow. But the fire ring and picnic table are at end of site (not enough room next to RV). Price a bit high for no amenities. - Liv2RV

We stayed here for one night. Got a lakeside site with electric. It was wide, grassy, with table and fire ring. Lots of families and kids. Quiet at night. A bit of traffic noise. Would stay here again. - Wyboo

Very nice and clean. Nothing like the last review. The locals were friendly and helpful. There is a resort next door were the kids rented a row boat for only $20.00 for all day. I would come back. - jmc

Great place for an overnight. No way to reserve but it was 80% empty when we got there. Easy in and out. Honor system payment by cash or check put in collection box. Quiet. Plenty of room to walk dog. Verizon hotspot and phone worked well. - all4pets

No frills, but quiet with very long and very level sites. We used this as base for day trip to Houghton and Copper Harbor. Can walk to grocery store. Would highly suggest doing laundry prior to coming. Only laundromat in town is very dirty with many broken machines. Not much to the town, but the campground worked great for what we needed. - tillie
