We stayed here for one night. Got a lakeside site with electric. It was wide, grassy, with table and fire ring. Lots of families and kids. Quiet at night. A bit of traffic noise. Would stay here again. - Wyboo

Very nice and clean. Nothing like the last review. The locals were friendly and helpful. There is a resort next door were the kids rented a row boat for only $20.00 for all day. I would come back. - jmc

Limited sites with both electric and water. We selected a site for the view along the river and it only had electric. We had to fill our tank and watch our water usage so we would not have to hook up again over the 4 days to fill up again. The site view was great but quite far from the bathroom and shower.
The wifi was okay but very slow. They used to have cable because the connections are still at the sites but do not work. We had 2 over the air stations to choose from.
We would stay again but would go for a site with electric and water next time. - John Borajkiewicz

This is a nice city park, lots of room and forested. Very reasonably priced for the area. Laundry facilities in the bath-house, had to look. Very convenient location to explore the area. - Legends Of America

Sites are small, with overhanging trees on many. Campground is across a highway from a gravel pit, lots of heavy truck noise. Many unsupervised children on bikes, lots of locals cruising through, which is a scary combination. This park does not take any credit cards, a fact not disclosed on their web site. Also no confirmation of reservation, just verbal. We called & reserved a site with electric & water, found no sites with water available on arrival. Gate attendant was very rude and unfriendly. I cannot recommend this park to anyone and would not stay here again. - coolmom42

Superb park with waterfront views at every site. Only problem is there aren't enough spots; we would have stayed more than two days if there had been a cancellation. Park so you have a view of the water, forward, backward, whatever. When arriving, do NOT turn at Houghton Canal Road: no park access despite the advice of some mapping programs. Lots to do in area but don't miss the Quincey Copper Mine tour ($19 for seniors). - Mtmoi

The signage to the office is poor. When you turn in, do not stop at the first building. Go on down the road. The campground is terraced so everyone has a view of the water. Unfortunately it was designed as back-in sites so your windshield is not facing the water. Each site has a covered picnic table and another seating bench. The campground was quiet and we enjoyed our stay. We would camp here again. - Quilter99

Site 15 is not level although all the other sites appear to be level. This site is pretty short and the rear tires will be off the ground if you have a big rig. Bring lots of boards to prevent that from happening. Large plants have grown up around the hookups, so you may need a saw also.
Although this park is over looking a river, none of the sites face the river. Be careful with directions getting here from some GPS units. You cannot get in from Canal Street. That is permanently blocked. As stated in the other reviews, this is a small park all paved in asphalt. One row is next to a road, so expect some noise. Wifi is fair. - pcmike

As detailed in previous postings, this is parking places off to the side of the main parking lot. 50 amp electric and nothing else but you can't beat the price, FREE. Just register at the casino. - lllkrob

This campground has electric only, but it's free! In addition, they give you $5.00 a day to stay there, and a free drink ticket. In my review I gave a cost of one dollar, as the form doesn't recognize free. It is a smaller casino, but we always have good luck there, and the staff is super friendly. - Northern Runner

This is a very nice and clean park. All 7 sites are long and level. Cell phone service was weak. For satellite you had to shoot between trees so it might be hard to get. Would stay here again when in area. - ds4006

Nice place to stay for a few days. The $5 coupon & free drink per person daily brings the actual daily charge down to zero, until you play the machines. They are not what I would call "loose". Although they advertise cable they don't have it. Could not get any channels on the antenna either. We stayed in site 11 and WiFi was good. Although they don't take reservations I have never seen this park full. - flnomad

The RV parking sites are blacktop extending off the casino parking lot. We were on site 10 and it was level. Except for casino, restaurant and hotel traffic in the lot it was quiet. Every day they will give you a guest package good for $5 gambling and a free drink. Pretty good deal when it is only $20 a night to stay. After some rain sites 1 thru 4 had some standing water. Verizon and DirecTV worked well. Each site had its own trash receptacle. We stayed for 12 days. They don't take reservations but the 12 spaces never filled. We would definitely stay here again. - User1984

As detailed in other reviews, this park is parking spaces off to the side of the main parking lot. Full hookups are provided with most sites having 30 amp electric. Also note that utilities are oddly placed with some on left side and the next site would be on the right side. - lllkrob

Easy access next to US41. Some noise from the highway and railroad line immediately behind the park, but it didn't bother us. Interior roads are paved. Sites are grass. Some sites very shady, but the site we stayed on had a few trees. Sat TV was no problem at our site and Verizon Wireless had full bars service. About half of the RV sites have 30 amp electric. You may need an extension cord to reach the pedestal. Water is available at only a few places in the park. Good central sewer dump location. Keweenaw Peninsula is beautiful. Nearby casino with RV park. - eaglessoc

I downgraded my rating from last year because I reserved a pull thru site and they did not have mine available when I got there. Also, the traffic noise from the highway seemed to be worse then last year. The south section of campground was closed so it got a little busy in the north section. I was surprised how many campers there were, again reservations not essential unless you want a pull thru. A good place for base camp. - Tom51

This is a great, small state park. Good campground facilities for a state park, with no sewer and water at site, but a very convenient dump station and water points. The park has not much other than the campground. We would definitely stay again. - wandrr

Excellent views of the bay at Sand Point just on the North side of Baraga, MI at the lighthouse. All sites have 30 amp service but no water or sewer hookups. Dump station is available. Sites along the waterfront are $20/night and the inland sites (still a lakeview but across the road) are $15. Everything is first come first served. All sites are grass with a fire pit and picnic table. Roughly 2/3 of the sites are waterfront. There are very few trees except for a small grove of pines near the center of the waterfront sites. All roads are smooth and paved.
This seems to be a local secret since the state park nearby was quite busy but this gem of campground was nearly empty. When you enter, turn towards the marina to pay the manager. There is a house and a garage with a drop box for the registration papers, otherwise the manager will come to your site for payment.
There is a boat ramp and excellent spots at the lakefront sites to launch a kayak. Fishing is excellent around the marina plus there is a small pond near the rear of the campground. There is free Wi-Fi all around the park. Wi-Fi antennas are visible at several points. We got 2 Mb download speed but very few other campers in the park.
The website is old and outdated. There are many pieces of information that are not accurate as of 2015. The website says rates are $8 per night but it's $20. There are discounts for tribal members. Weekly rates are $100 per week on the waterfront and $65 for inland. - Craig H

What a gem! They don't take reservations until 8 AM on the day you plan to arrive. We just showed up early and were lucky enough to get a site directly on the beach that fit our 25 foot Class C perfectly. We were literally 25 feet from the beach and water. In another section of the park there were $30 gravel back-in beach sites for larger RVs. Across the road, the park had secluded sites in the woods, but we thought the bugs could be a problem. We only had plans to stay one night, but ended up staying 3 nights because of the sunsets and stars over Lake Superior. The park has a friendly and helpful attendant from 8AM-5PM and a camp host available 5-11 PM. There is a great children's play area in a separate section of the park. The park was very quiet and a one mile walk/drive to downtown Ontonagon. We thought this park was the "find" of our two weeks in the Upper Peninsula. - SnugBug1

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

A pleasant surprise before heading to the Porkies in the AM. We stayed here in a 23' class B MH - no slides or toad. Couldn't reach them via phone because of non cell areas throughout UP. BUT the owner had heard enough to have a site picked for us. Short walk to the river (a bit muddy) but interesting to see their pontoon boat anchored with a bolted picnic table on it. Quite different. The owner and staff were helpful and attentive. We would stay here again. Our site was electric and water - convenient dump station. Showers and rest rooms were roomy and clean. - and HEATED!! - KAZIMIRA

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

A steep, narrow entry road affords access to this quiet, well-groomed and scenic public park. Sites are grass and many are on a slope. There is no water or sewer hookup, the reliable electric is a long stretch at many sites and the park’s Wi-Fi was good most of the time. AT&T phone and data signals were good. In addition to pit toilets there is a shower house with flush toilets. The one shower stall per gender is kept locked with keys issued to campers but not the general public; all facilities were clean. We would be happy to stay here again. - never settled

This park is a gem in many ways. The view of Keweenah bay is fantastic. The park is clean, quiet, has good power, good water available at a central point, and good Wi-Fi. The Verizon cell phone also has a good signal. Most sites are level side to side with a slight downward slope. The only negative I have are the fire pits. They are over a foot deep in the ground, makes it hard to enjoy a campfire when all you see is smoke coming from a hole in the ground! - midnightpumpkin

Beautiful view of sunset over Lake Superior. We stayed here on their closing weekend but all was very clean and the host was very friendly. Spaces were fairly tight but since there were only two others staying that wasn't a problem. Happy to have electricity on a chilly night. - User2225
