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

Just a mile from the quaint village of Ontonagon, this park is right on the south shore of Lake Superior and has several lake front sites (we think the best are #11 and 12). The sandy beach is safe for young and old and alike. Although none of the sites have sewer, the dump station is easily accessible from either direction. Most sites are heavily wooded, but there are a few from which a satellite signal can be obtained. The lake front sites are limited to 9 to 16 days, but very nice sites located just 30 yards from the lake are available for the whole summer. This is a great park. Sites are all "first-come-first served", i.e., no reservations. Camp manager and staff are very cordial and helpful. - hayfever

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

Right on Lake Superior at Union Bay. There is lots of hiking, canoeing, kayaking and motor touring to be done in the area. Sites are grass, somewhat level and open. Make sure to take the time to go over to the Black River National Forest Scenic Byway. A bit of a drive; however, well worth the trip. The "Porkies" as they are known would qualify as a National Park. Michigan decided it couldn't wait for that status so created the state wilderness park instead. The park does have the essence and quality level of a National Park. Well worth the trip. Would come again. - fulltimervtravel

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
