Stayed right on the lake, wooded sites, water and electric, easy in and out, very friendly staff and accommodating. Well layed out and pet friendly. Worth the trip. Our only choice for this area. We camped at Ontonagon Township Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice town park and campground right on the lake. We got a space by calling first thing in the morning but unfortunately couldn't get one on the lake. It appears locals get these sites locked up as there were many with unoccupied rigs just taking up the space. Some of the lakefront sites have a 9-day limit but the rest appear to have no limit at all. Sites in the northeast section are in twos so half have privacy with their doors facing wooded areas and half have another camper right at their door. You take what you can get. There were lots of children running around with typical kid-noise. The worst thing was when a camper inconsiderately set off 15 minutes of extremely noisy fireworks at 11:00 pm, way past quiet time (and it wasn't even close to July 4th). Nothing was done about it in spite of having a camp host on site. The noise terrified all the dogs....our neighbors' dog was lost for several hours after breaking out of his harness and running off in terror. (It wasn't a good experience for combat veterans with PTSD either.) They have wifi but it never worked well enough for us to use it. Our Verizon hotspot worked fine. We loved Ontonagon and the park's location on the lake was so good we would take another chance on the place. Your experience will depend on what site you get and how your neighbors behave. We camped at Ontonagon Township Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit the Gitchee Gumee Landing Gift Shop in Ontonagon. Very nice place with lots to look at (and buy for gifts or for yourself). Don't miss the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park just 17 miles down the coast.

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. We camped at Ontonagon Township Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Check out Stubbs museum bar. It has all kinds of logging and copper history on the walls.

One of the best parks we've stayed at. We were on a premium site (each premium site has its own path to the sandy beach of Lake Superior). Exceptionally clean and personnel incredibly helpful and friendly. We camped at Ontonagon Township Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Gitchee Gumee Landing- best souvenir shop, laundromat- up for sale and the majority of the washers and most dryers broken and have maintenance slips on them, but the ones that are still working do get the job done.

Sunsets at this campground are incredible. We were going to stay only 3 nights and more than doubled our stay.

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. We camped at Ontonagon Township Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Syl's in town has a great breakfast with homemade breads and pastries. Had the BEST cinnamon raisin toast ever, hands down. Laundromat in town is terrible. It has been vandalized several times and the old lady that owns it won't replace the bathroom or the carts. She hardly keeps up the machines. The repairman was there when we were there and filled us in.

Camped here in mid-July so it was fairly busy, but thankfully we got there in the middle of the week and were able to secure a lakefront site (#26). There are really 4 different sections here. The ones on the north end were grassy and generally shaded. Some water hookups were more than 25 ft. The middle section (where we camped) had about 7-8 lakefront sites, all very nice. There were pull-throughs, but not made for longer RV's. Also some sites were along the country road that were grassy and shaded. The newest section, and probably the most sought after, has 7 lakeside sites only. The new restroom/showers were in this section and were very nice and kept clean. The 4th section was across the road from the other sites and the lake. It contained several sites that were level, grassy, and mostly shaded. The dump station was in the newer section and was easily accessible. Usually one young man ran the office. He was pleasant and usually around the campground area attending to duties. This is a laid-back operation, but they take good care of things. The beach was excellent!!! Nice and sandy and not very far from our campsite (about 50 yards or less). Town was about 1 mile south and there is a sidewalk most of the way there. We walked into and around town for our morning exercise. Porcupine Mtns. State Park was about 14 miles south, but the park is huge so there is more driving necessary if you want to enjoy the full park. Syl's is a good place to eat. There is a good grocery store on the east side of town along M-38. We camped at Ontonagon Township Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
