3 Parks near Ontonagon, Michigan

This town park doesn't take reservations, but we were able to call in the morning before we came in and the nice young man managing the park took our RV info and held an appropriate site for us.
We had an excellent view of Lake Superior from our site, and as we were looking west over the lake we enjoyed walking down to the water and watching the sunsets.
About the only negative thing is the location of the utility hookups. They were in an unusual location relative to our unit, but we were able to get hooked up OK.
Overall, we were quite pleased with the park and would gladly stay there again. - Starxd

We called early morning and spoke to the host. He promised to hold a waterfront site for us, if one opened up (we figured we could be there in a couple of hours) We ended up in one of the newer premium sites with a great view of the beach and lake. Plenty of shade, slightly un level, but doable. The older section had much more of a mix of sites, more suited to families and big groups. Overall we were pleased with our location. - housecar

Would have given this a rating of 10 if there had been water on our site. We had to fill the tank before parking. Beautiful backing right up to Lake Superior. The hosts were terrific and do a great job of taking care of the park and looking after their guests. - Rick & Karen

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

Typical state park with sites close together. Close enough that we had to close our windows to avoid the campfire smoke from the site next to us. In fact, their fire was closer to our trailer than our fire was. Plus, the bathrooms were torn down and they had portajohn/showers brought in - 5 for a large campground, so they got pretty disgusting. We chose this campground because it was centrally located to the trails we wanted to hike. Quite a few of the sites were torn up from tires apparently mired in the mud from a recent rain - ours included. - Marsha D

We had a beautiful site right on the lake shore. The site was level and grassy, with large slab stones covering a small wet drainage area.
30 amp power at the site but no water hookups. (Water was available about 4 sites away at a shared faucet).
Great sunsets and sunrises over the lake!
Out site was rather narrow (length along the road). It was deep enough to put the trailer perpendicular to the road. It would have been better to put the trailer parallel to the road (as most others did) but the site was too narrow that direction. - User3581

Long, grass, pull-thru sites that are firm even after rain. Sites are close but the park was not very busy so people spread out giving room. Utilities were good. Restrooms are dated but fine, not cleaned very often. Staff is friendly and helpful. Easy to get in and out with big rig. Free WiFi worked well. Strong Verizon signal. Good location to store, restaurant and the Porkies. Rate is weekly. Would stay here again. Rating 7 rather than 8 because restrooms marginally clean. - cwier

We had a nice, grassy site with 2 open sites next to us so it was roomy. Most of the campground had sites very close to each other. The owners were very nice and the campground was well taken care of. It was a great location to tour Porcupine Mountains State Park. Be sure to eat at Henry's Inn located about 10 miles away. They have some great nightly specials at a great rate. - SNL

This park is a nice alternative to the ones in the Porcupine Mt. State Park or the Ontonogan City Park. It is conveniently located close to the parks and town. Very nice IGA grocery store in town. The bathroom and shower facilities are a little dated and were not cleaned every day. They could use a good scrubbing. Cable TV was provided, but no Wi-Fi. Verizon cell coverage was very good. Some of the sites are quite close together, so if the park is full you would be up close and personal with your neighbor. Good gravel access roads. Sites are mostly grass, but firm and only a few wet areas after a heavy rain. - Good Vibes
