15 Parks near Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan

The best thing going for this campground is that it is right on the banks of the Saint Mary's River about two miles downstream from the Soo Locks. The big freighters go by no more than 100 yards away. The locks are busy so you'll probably see several freighters in a day. People with sites not on the river bank walk down to the bank when the freighters go by. Even though I did not have a reservation, check-in was professional, easy and quick. The restrooms and showers are very clean. I probably had the best site in the campground, Number 9, in the corner, right on the river. My site had water and electric. I don't know if they have sewer hookups. The campground was pretty much full, even in mid-September. The downside of this campground is that the drainage is very poor with large persistent, puddles almost everywhere. Some sites have gravel but many are mostly grass - and quite muddy after a rain. There is no shade and no privacy between the closely spaced sites. Having now seen the Soo Locks, I would stay here only for a single night, if passing through the area. - Teardrop11

Everyone has pretty much stated all the facts. The biggest issue is lack of sewer hookup. We were only here for 3 nights, so not much of a problem.
Otherwise, you have to use a "honey wagon" or call an off site vendor.
The canal and ships are the real draw. - DJanis

Nice city ran park, friendly staff, good WiFi, 5 over air TV stations. Lots to do nearby. Paved roads and close to tour the locks boats, $27.00 adult prices. Big ships sail right past you up and down the St. Mary's river. - 1972 camaro

This is place to dry camp with power. we were scheduled to leave today going to our next stop but decided we wanted to stay another night to take the Soo Locks Dinner cruise. We came here and found the place to be nice for what it is. Sites vary in size but you can get in and out with a big rig, no problem. Road is gravel, Sites are grass and level. Great Verizon 4G and open for satellites. You can use the hotel pool and workout room as well as restaurants and shows. Good place to stay of ra night or two. Cost can be dependent on your activities in the Casino! - Pjoe

Electric on site, water at the bathroom building. Dump site is at the back of the casino parking lot. One huge issue, at the dump site there are two hoses present neither of which is potable water but there is NO sign stating that. Only potable water is at the bathhouse. We mentioned it to the cashier at the front desk when we registered and said that he would bring it to the attention of the manager. I doubt that anything will be done about it. Since it is a tribal casino I don't think that local health department can do anything about it. - Rick & Karen

Great overnight stop for us to resupply the RV and fuel up before heading into Canada. Clean, well maintained campground with access to the casino facilities included. Very nice staff. Restrooms and showers were very clean and well maintained. Would definitely return passing through the area. Electric only available at each site. - Bob & Stephanie

This park is located on the waterfront very close to the Soo Locks, a major visitor attraction. It is a tight little park but pleasant enough for a night or two. We stayed here on a beautiful night in late September and it was almost full despite the lateness of the season, so think about reservations. This CG is very close to another one, Aune Osborne, but seemed to us to be a little nicer (but similar). You can see the lake and the huge carriers passing by from almost every site, which is interesting and pleasant. Our site was in the back of the CG under some trees and it was not level at all, but most of the sites closer to the lake are paved and very level. We chose our site because it wasn't as close to neighbors - the lakefront sites are very close. - virginianola

Nice park right on the water. Great views of boats/ships going to and from Soo Locks. 30 amp only. It was a strong 30 amp. Walking areas nearby for dogs to run. - MizB450

A beautiful spot to stay. We were right on the canal and could sit and watch the big ships approach the locks into Lake Superior. - W Davidson

This park has closed. The land is reportedly being developed as the new site of a WalMart SuperCenter. - peakcomm

A nice campground for a home base to see the area. Owners are very nice. They also provide a pet walking service, too. Had a nice time there. Should note that they are in the process of trying to sell the campground, and if they do, the above statements, might not apply. - Armenian

We pulled into the park and parked next to the camp host's RV. No one was around. The site was grassy and level. There were 3 or 4 other RVs stating there. One of the 2 men's showers was not working due to a leaking hose. The dressing area was real close to the showers, and I got my clothes damp. Tow of the toilets needed paper. - 1dinky

We stayed here 2 nights. The pads are only 20' long but the area is quite long and we were able to hang over onto the grass. The park was under utilized so we parked our truck on the site next to us and it wasn't an issue. They also have a 30 day rate which was quite reasonable. We would stay here again. - Chris-N-Keith

This is a nice township RV Park in Kinross / Kincheloe to relax. There is not very much you can do there, but we also used it as a base camp for Sault Sainte Marie, St. Ignace + Mackinac Island, and a trip to White Fish Point with the Ship Wreck Museum. The roads inside the park are paved and the sites are all back-in sites with a concrete pad. The pads are only 20 ft long, but level. The full hookups have only 30 Amp. The campground is quiet. The clubhouse looked run-down inside. A grocery is in walking distance. With Passport America you can get a discount for one night. - RVer from Oregon

Very pleasant stay, park was quite crowded, although sites were fairly spacious, so that helped. Pretty location on Lake Michigan. We stayed in our motor home during our visit. Pleasant staff. - Dondi-496

Park extremely busy for Labor Day with every site filled. There were many children which was OK but also many groups of 20-30 yr olds which was not tolerable. They were noisy, threw trash in our site while walking by. Our site was on the lake but lake could not be seen because of the trees. Even though there was a designated walkway to the beach, a number of campers walked thru our site to get to beach. No place for me to walk my dog other than the very crowded camp roads. It seemed many sites had more than one car. Would not stay there again. Do not think staff monitored area very well. - carol5249

Great place to stay. Will definitely be coming back! The dirt/grass sites are nice not too small, has fire ring and picnic table. Park is clean, lots to do in the area. We enjoyed being close to the water. Great family park. - PKG82711

Check in at casino hotel desk. Nice staff, two decent casinos, buffet very limited but not expensive. Park is all pull-thru and clean. Too many pot holes on access roads, needs work. Dump station at park exit location. - JAYFLIGHTRV
Sep 2016 - $35.00
Great location for visiting the area. The casino is across the road. The sites are spacious and many have full hookups and cable TV. Easy access for big rigs and pull thru sites are very long and level. Very quiet and well maintained. We come here several times a year. - Wimsey
Jul 2016 - $30.00
I can't really remember what we paid but it was about $30- I think.
We only stayed one night as we were moving toward another location.
It is all open field sites. they are level, only small trees. Only restrooms/showers are up at front.
You must register at the Hotel across the street. They are friendly and helpful though. It is completely open to the public, no gate code or anyone from the facility on site. Everything is at hotel/casino.
We had a problem with our awning. It had rained and was wet, slipped and slid hard into down position.
We called the desk and they sent their maintenance guy. He was friendly and helpful- in the rain no less- and helped get it unstuck.
Sites are gravel/grass ( weeds), W/E are well placed and in good shape. Dump station is easy to get to and on the way out.
They have boat ramp into the lake you can use too.
Simple and not great views, but not a bad place to stop over.
Good area to walk the dog. - sunandwater

No potable water, the utility post was a couple of 120 volt outlets with a bucket over the top to keep them dry. Small sites. From the website we expected a view of the river somewhere in the campground but there wasn't any (we were told you had to walk thru the woods and follow the fence to the park down the way to get to the river. We cancelled our stay and went down to road to another campground (we have stayed is some iffy places before and never walked away but didn't want to risk our unit to their electrical hookup). Nice people in the office-they didn't give us any problem with a refund. - kld

This park is opening all sites to seasonal. Grab your site now. The managers are very helpful and keep a close eye on things. They have decided for next year that all sites, including beach front will be open to seasonal campers. - normsoo

Far from town on a quiet point on the lake. Friendly and helpful staff, small and limited camp store. Good park for a quiet weekend, or drive into town for restaurants, shops and the casino. Fun activities for the whole family. - Makanamommy
Found another one of those rare RV spots worth spending extra days. Glen’s Cove is a campground, not a resort or fancy place to stay. But if you want low cost camping, fishing, power boating, canoeing, kayaking, biking or a just quiet place to stay and great people to visit with on the office porch or around the campfire in the evening then this place is worth looking into. Concrete boat ramp, dock and slips with electric for up 25 foot boats, enclosed fish cleaning station and plenty of room for trailer parking or boat and RV storage. Very large St Mary’s river waterfront common area for watching the freighters go by, napping in the hammock or enjoying campfires and lively discussions just about every evening. Pet friendly and playground for the kids. Most sites are well shaded and a few on the hill are satellite friendly. Fire pits, picnic tables, 30 amp and water at all sites plus a dump cart and small tractor for all to use for the dump station. Sites are pretty level, grassy with gravel. The camp access road and all interior roads are well maintained gravel. Showers and bathrooms are scattered around the park and there is a honor system laundry on the hill near the entrance, all are older but well maintained and clean. Camp store is well stocked with fishing gear and rental movies. Twenty-five RV sites, 5 tent sites and four waterfront cabins. Wi-Fi and rental motors and boats available at the office. Owners live on site, are very friendly and go out of their way to be sure everyone has a great camping visit. Camping rate reflects Passport America discount, seven days or more is $18. - ctpres

The park is small and beautiful--right on the shore of Lake Huron. However, the electrical system is so woefully outdated that I will never camp there again until I learn it has been rewired. The temperature was in the 90s and humid and very sunny. There was not sufficient power at the post for me to run my air conditioner, so I had to unplug and run my generator, which I hate to do in a park because it's so intrusive to others. (I travel with a black cat who overheats in severe weather, so I can't endanger his health.) The motor home next to me had reverse polarity! I spoke to the manager about the situation. She said it was the fault of the "little black boxes", referring to our surge protectors. According to her, the "boxes" siphon off power that would otherwise be available at the posts. She told me the wiring in the park is 30 years old. It's time for rewiring! - 0045-6420

The location of this campground is very nice, right on the water, and they have plenty of land; it's too bad they didn't use it to spread out the campsites. We were parked awning to awning, way too close for us. True, the view of the water is very nice, but to see it you have to be at the edge of your site. Wi-Fi is available at a price and the signal was not strong. Our Verizon signal faded in and out, too. Not much going on in Cedarville. We would not come back again, primarily because of the sites being too close. - dbcordello

Rate was for Passport America, however, we were able to use PA for only 4 nights, not a week as specified in the PA book. We did not use the bathrooms or showers, so no comment. We were assigned a very nice pull-in site overlooking the bay, which we enjoyed looking at out of our windshield. We had a lot of privacy and some shade trees on our west side. Site was hard-packed grass. Our electric and water hookups were on the wrong side of our rig but that was no problem for us. However, the sewer was also on the wrong side but impossible for us to reach with our hoses. We realize owners have to compromise hookup locations to accommodate 5th wheels, trailers, or motorhomes. We noticed other sites' sewer locations would also be challenging for any type of rig unless they had a LOT of hose. This campground is convenient for touring the eastern area of the U.P. One drawback: the mosquitoes were bad, however we found out that there was an over-abundance of the pests all over the country! Oh yes, we had visitors to our site; deer and sandhill cranes. No loons though. We will visit again providing we can us PA. We travel in a 33' rig. - gatordan
