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

Nice little city park. Great value for the area. We called with short notice and got right in. They do accept reservations and will assign you a site when you call. No deposits needed. Pay attendant at a small kiosk at the park entrance. Very wooded park mostly on a hillside, as is the whole City of Hancock. Most sites are not level, so bring your chocks and plenty of leveling lumber. Some sites by the water, BUT... These are adjacent to the city beach parking area, so LOTS of traffic. Laundry facilities available. Overall, a very OK park and the best price we've seen this year. - AlaskaJack

We were looking for a low key place to stay for 2 rest days. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on weekdays.
This campground fit the bill. It was clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful and friendly. There was a wide variety of sites - outer loop sites were larger than inner loop. Some were very private. Some had views of Portage River and a couple were right on the river. Most sites had electric, a few had water. There was a dump station near the entrance. There was good AT&T and Verizon coverage. There was free WiFi - it was a bit slow and fastest near the bathrooms/laundry. - dsvt

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

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

Great place to stop for an overnight or short stay. The 12 campsites are located along the edge of the casino parking lot. All are paved, back-in sites with a picnic table and grass in between, water, sewer, 30 amp power, good wifi, and a trash can. We also got a coupon for a free drink and $5 casino money everyday. There is enough green space around the property to walk a dog. The bathrooms inside the casino are very nice and there is also a bowling alley, indoor pool that campers can use, and a restaurant. The area seemed safe as it is well lit, patrolled by security, and only a short distance from the casino. We would definitely stay here again. - JoyceM

Paved, level back-in sites with good grass spacing, picnic table, full hookups, all for $20 night - and you get $5 in free play and a drink coupon each day. Join the player's club and get another $10 in free play. No cable or OTA TV, but no restrictions to satellite. The hotel WiFi worked well in site 10 most of the time, and Verizon cell/data worked well. Friendly casino staff and decent restaurant. The only drawback to staying here is that there's not much in the area, otherwise a great stay. - Meanderman

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

Clean, clean, nice grassy site with shade. Good 30 Electric. Right on Hwy41, so, yes busy traffic, but easy to get to. Would try to get an inside site. Traffic less at night. Did not see or hear a train. Wi-Fi mostly OK. - USA16RVer
Jul 2010 - $25.00
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

Sep 2015 - $20.00
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

I considered not even writing this review so I could hog this park all to myself. There are sites on Lake Superior large enough for my 40' rig, 14' trailer and car. We have a short walk through a low dune to the beach. We were able to pull the MH in front-first to maximize the view and minimize the wind on our awning. The manager and his staff are beyond helpful and pleasant. Bathrooms are super clean, and the shower water is hot. If you don't want to break camp and dump, they have a reasonably priced honey-wagon, as they have no sewer. But who cares? There is a lovely nature trail through surprisingly mature woods to walk the dog. And I could go on and on.
The only difficulty is they do not take reservations. Some lakeside sites are 9 day limits, some are sixteen. There are always some sites off the lake available through mid-day, and the equestrian park across the street always seems to have openings. So there is always SOME place to stay here. Once here, you can scout out opening sites and move if you so wish. The 16-day limit is for a particular site, not the park itself, so you can move around and extend your stay. It's worth this minimal hassle.
We are extending our stay here, and would go out of our way to return. - Sheryl E

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

These folk were vague on the phone and pleasant but vague in person. The very minimum was done to maintain the park. Lawn was mowed, but areas around posts and rocks hadn't been trimmed all season. Downed branches from storms past were cleaned up, and piled in the middle of the tenting area, which now had a few seasons of weeds growing around them, and there were assorted abandoned vehicles and machinery at the far edges of the park. Some of the sites were too narrow for slide outs, although very long. It was hit or miss, basically, but park was not full, so there was choice. Electricity and water were fine. One permanent trailer was a bit sketchy looking. So basically, it was fine for a few days, but glad we were not staying longer. - Sheryl E

Nice, basic campground. Sites are grass, moderately level; plenty long for 40' coach and tow. But the fire ring and picnic table are at end of site (not enough room next to RV). Price a bit high for no amenities. - Liv2RV

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

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

One of my favorite campsites with great views of Lake Superior and sunsets. Spacious sites. Staff was very helpful and gave us extension cord as electrical
Boxes far away. Walk down to see lighthouse , easy drive to copper mines and around beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula. - IowaGirl
Sep 2013 - $26.00
Great state park on Lake Superior. Sunsets were amazing. Sites are level and spacious. Bring an extension cord as the power was 75 feet away from the site. They are improving the bathrooms, but the existing ones are clean with plenty of hot water. Staff and campground hosts were friendly. We stayed in site 82, two nights so that we could take a day trip to Copper Harbor. We cannot wait to return to this beautiful park. - Glory Bee

We were disappointed to learn that we could only stay one night, as all sites were reserved for a music festival weekend. Only the camp sites on the lake have great views, and we would try to return for one of those sites. - AluminumCloud
