Well I had reserved two sites. When I arrived one of the sites had been canceled by someone other than me. lucky I did not need the other site because my traveling companion had to go home. To make matters worse there was already someone in the wrongly canceled spot. These people are crooks. Well they did say no refunds but they do not say they will rent your deposited site to someone else. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a big park with one trash bin. Roads are gravel, most sites are on grass and only defined by the location of the utilities. Our site and others were a sloshy, muddy mess after rain. Very few 50 amp, no sewer; dump station is not in the campground but next door near the boat ramp. Only one building of bathrooms next to the office; really not ample for this big park. Campground is full of people with barking dogs, multiple children running wild and I have no confidence there is anyone in management that would monitor behaviors according to the park rules. In the office, a mother was working with her teenage son and elementary age daughter in there with her. She acted like I was an inconvenience and spoke only to them. She didn't even offer a map of the campground, I had to ask for one. Very sloppy operation. You have to want to come here real bad to stay here. I would not return; I'd rather drive 50 miles to see the locks and stay in a comfortable park. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Motorhome.

We checked in the afternoon following a major rain event - the entire campground had large areas of standing water. Our initial site was unusable, so the manager gave us a one nighter to get us on dry ground. We then stayed out our time in site #45. Close to the office and decent wi-fi. The park needs some real grading work to eliminate the water drainage issues. The electrical posts in many cases are in standing water following a heavy rain. The 30 amp breaker on site 45 will not provide full 30 amp - more like 20-25 and then trips under load. Water pressure is very good and dump station is well designed with stations for entry and exit. We will stay again - not many choices, so best of the bunch. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Second time we've stayed here close to July 4th. Not as busy as in 2015. Very nice campground because of the view of the river and passing freighters. Easy to navigate for big rigs, some sites easier to get into than others. Site 40 is supposed to be a pull-thru but it has to be backed into. The other pull-thru sites are probably the same. Some areas are swampy for days after rain. Only real negative for us is that they advertise wifi but it's useless even with the place only half full. There are now 50 amp sites we didn't know about but would get next time. Would definitely stay again. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It rained before we got there and everything was wet. The water didn't soak into the ground. Clean restrooms and showers. Site surface was dirt and grass, and had both a fire ring and picnic table. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This cg features level grassy sites with a view of St Mary River and passing lake freighters. Drainage is poor, so sites remain quite wet following rain. We even noticed some campers that appeared to be "marooned." Our water connection was almost 100' away, but friendly cg staff loaned us a 50' hose, so all was well. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Soo Locks Boat Tour is practically next door. In our opinion, this comprehensive 2.5 hr tour is absolutely spectacular and well worth the money.

Newer shower/bath/laundry facility. Beautiful views of St Mary's river and ships. All sites had W/E. They had a dump station. Had to ask neighbor to move their truck as we couldn't make our pivot point while backing in-we have a 45ft MH. Otherwise it was easy to navigate through the park. Picnic tables were worn out, playground equipment was from the 60's. Grass sites now as any gravel they had is all buried deep in the ground. Very wet-standing water at sites after a heavy rain-pour drainage at many sites but no one got stuck. The fish flies (aka May flies) were horrible. Used our leaf blower to get them off the door, vents, slides, etc. They said they've had them all summer, very unusual. Friends at Soo Locks CG said they weren't as bad there. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Motorhome.

Visited Soo Locks Visitor Center and the locks. Enjoyed fish fry at Antlers BTW it closed at 9pm on Friday night! Put in our Kayaks at the Rotary Park and paddled the St Mary's River around Voyager Island and hiked the island too.

This was a nice place except for a group in 5th wheels that were camping here and trying to start a campfire after it rained for 4 days straight and smoked everyone else out of the park! Just rude campers that don't use common sense!!!!!

The shower house appears to be a newer facility however, the showers themselves were not clean!!!!! We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice municipal CG right on the St. Marys River, which is part of the St. Lawrence Seaway...which means you get to watch large Great Lakes freighters cruise right by at close distance! Not much in way of trees here, but there is decent spacing between sites. Interior roads are paved and easily maneuvered, and sites are packed gravel and level. All sites are water/electric only, but they have a 2-lane, readily accessible dump station. Bathroom and shower facilities very nice and well maintained, with private lockable shower rooms. There is a laundry but no camp store. They have WiFi with decent signal, but was always too overloaded for our use. However, Verizon signal here is very good. Grounds are nicely maintained. Getting reservations can be a little time-consuming, as they are by phone only, and required a bit of phone tag to get live person. We did not have any rain here, so did not have standing water issues mentioned in other reviews. Would definitely stay again if in area. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Definitely visit the Army Corps of Engineers Soo Locks site in town. We also made a day trip into Canada to just tour the Trans-Canada Highway, which was very scenic north of Ste. Sault Marie, Ontario.

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. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Travel Trailer.

City Campground on St. Mary's River, where you can watch big ships going to and from the Soo Locks. Good paved interior roads; level, gravel/dirt sites, with 30-amp electric (water at dump station). Plenty of green space to walk my dogs. Small, but clean laundry room; large, clean restrooms and private showers. We would stay here again. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a crowded, busy park, and it's not about the amenities, it's about the view. Dried up grass, uneven gravel sites, no shade, 30A and shared water, but ample space between most spaces. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Waterfront view sites are booked well in advance, but you can get a glimpse of the large freighters from almost anywhere in the park. The free WiFi was unusable, but Verizon cell/data worked well. No cable, but some OTA channels and no obstructions to the satellite. Convenient to the tour boat docks, museums, and downtown. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Motorhome.
