Un-remarkable. Mostly permanent residents. Just fine for an overnighter and not a vacation stop. - socaljj

I guess there are no previous remarks because this place is so unremarkable. Sites are gravel on mud (with leaky taps) in a field behind a CW bar. Don't pay for the sewer connection unless your pipe is at the extreme aft end of your rig: with my mid-mounted pipe I had to use the dump station, which is slanted the wrong way. The new restrooms are huge, modern and spotless. Overall an OK place for a night. - ebdavis

Location...location...location. Our site was in the parking lot of a pleasure craft marina within a 10 minute walk to the most enjoyable area of historical Duluth. We opted for the electric and water only site over the FHU due to the outstanding view offered of the city including the nearby Duluth Lift Bridge. We came for 2 nights, stayed for 4 and didn't want to leave. - pwgfalcon

Location. Location. Location. If you want to be in Duluth and close to the action, this is where you need to be. There are no alternatives. Yes - it's a parking lot. Yes - it's a pricey parking lot. If you're parked on the non-sewer side of the rv park, getting a big rig in & out is a little tight but certainly do-able. However the staff was friendly and allowed us to check in early. Sites are level. The hook-ups worked perfectly. Verizon cell and Sprint Mifi worked perfectly. Water pressure is excellent. (You MUST use a water restrictor for your own good! The office sells them if you need one.) You have a view of boats in the marina. It's very quiet at night. If in Duluth, we would stay here again. - GottaGoNow

This is definitely "black top" camping, but the views and location are great! The drive to it is pretty scary with a rig towing a car, but trust Google Maps to get you through the turns in town. You drive through the Canal Park district and over the Aerial Lift Bridge to get there, and turn onto a tiny road. Stop at the marina office and they will show you where to go. A very nice young woman checked us in. All sites are back-in, and you have to back out from the water/electric sites when you leave. We enjoyed the view of the city and the bridge, and it's definitely a different kind of camping. Wifi worked pretty well. The bathroom/showers are in a small trailer, but work OK. There's lots of clanging of the masts and chains and some boat and train horns, but we slept through most of it. There are a couple of patches of grass to walk dogs. - mom2wildlife

This is a seasonal campground with about 8 sites available for short term campers. 6 are pull-through and other 2 are back-in sites. The interior road and all of the sites were on packed dirt and gravel. All sites have full hookup with 20/30 amp service. The electrical voltage is OK, hovering around 120. All of the utilities were up front so you might need a long electrical cord to reach the utility box. The sites were relatively level but the trees need trimming. You might have to maneuver around the trees to get into your site. There was one washer ($1.25) and one dryer ($1.00). The one bathroom and shower was located within the laundry room. The campground did not have Wi-Fi or cable. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. The seasonal residents and campground host were extremely friendly. It was very quiet at night. The road from I-35 to the campground (Commonwealth Road) is extremely pot-holed. There are few amenities on Commonwealth Road. Follow the signs to Boy Scout Landing station, and then turn left from the boat launch area to the campground. We would return to this campground if we were in the area. Our rig is 32' long. - adsaxs

What this c/g lacks in amenities, it makes up for in hospitality. We were the only transients there and were made to feel like family. The site was large, but only had 30amps. There is a boat launch and a small laundry - one machine each. Coffee and baked goods every morning. Good fishing. - dotr
Aug 2012 - $25.00
This campground has a lot of seasonal/permanent rigs. Probably about 50%. At first glance we weren't sure about it, but it turned out to be an okay place. It was very quiet, and the people were friendly. The river ambiance was nice, and our site was level. The rate for full hook-ups can't be beat. Cash or check as they do not take credit cards. Some kids were here, so kids are welcome, but no playground or pool. Most of the people were older. We would stay here again. - Gayle E.

We called about availability and got their "after hours - (4:30)" recording stating there was lots of availabilities. Being new to this area and unfamiliar w/the park, we did not realize the closeness of things! Trying to get the big rig in with a tow was a bit tricky and we had no idea of where if any there were any 50 amp sites so we just used a 30 amp converter. The site was not level - our front tires way off ground so decided not to even put slides out or level. We would not try and get in there again with a big rig. The park would be great for smaller size campers though! - Foxes

While we thoroghly enjoyed the park itself we were horrified to discover ticks on us and our dog. From merely walking through the campground, on the road, we all found ticks when we returned to our trailer. The park is beautiful and serene but I can never stay there again because of the ticks. It was unbelievable. - TravellinTam

The best thing this place has going for it is its location and natural setting in the woods. Beyond that, it needs some work. We enjoyed having a quick drive to Duluth and other area attractions. We also enjoyed sitting at our site among the trees and usually only hearing wildlife, although occasionally you could hear the distant hum of I-35. The facilities themselves are in need of upgrades and care. First, the utilities for most sites are on the wrong side of the camper, forcing you to run your electric and water across the site and underneath the camper. Several sites are unlevel and in some cases too close to their neighbors (while others enjoyed a lot of separation.) Be sure to know the layout of your site before booking as some are so close together that they are really only meant for group camping with one camper backed in, one pulled in. Even more sites were so small that only a tent would fit, let alone your car- and I'm not referring to the walk-in sites either! It's almost as though the sites were put anywhere space could be found and without the needs of campers in mind. There are bright streetlights that are left on 24-7 (so much for being "green") and are annoying at night when you're trying to watch the stars. Some of the lights are burned out (lack of maintenance) which was fortunate for us since one was right at the front of our site. The front office was hardly ever open so if you need firewood or other basic supplies, expect to go in town. The dump station was difficult to use because the road was lower than the drain; I had to constantly raise my sewer hose up and down in order to empty the tanks. Our biggest disappointment was with the bathrooms. They were clearly NOT cleaned on a regular basis as we observed the same trash (whiskers, toothpaste, hair) in the sinks and showers for several days before they were cleaned. The shower curtains themselves were stained with black mold. There was no hand soap or any way to dry your hands. We watched the cleaning lady one day sweep out the restrooms (not mop) while her car was running, so that shows you how much attention was paid to maintaining the bathrooms. Overall we were disappointed. This place could be so much more if it was maintained better and some of the sites were reworked. It's really a shame because if they did make the improvements, it would be one of the nicest places around in a beautiful part of our country. Too bad. - Fdwt994

This park can use a good cleaning around the showers, rest rooms, and office. All the buildings are covered with spider webs and bugs and the showers did not look clean at all. Our site had a view of a bunch of junk sitting alongside and the back of the office. We had site #8A and the electric was in the front of the campsite on the opposite side of the RV electric connection, so be sure to bring an extension to reach it. We were right next to the Internet transmitter but could not get on the Internet. We were told it was an old system and sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't, it never worked for us. The lady that checked us in was very polite and accommodating. This campground is way overpriced for what you get here and the quality of the campsites. - jhav

Stayed in this park for 2 nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful getting into our pull through site. The sites are all gravel very level and had no problems hooking up to all the services, we were in a full hook up site. There are many trees in the campground and the sites are large enoug h so you are not on top of each other. The campground was easy to get into and had no problem maneuvering within the campground with our 39' fifth wheel. - Jim Moyer

The campground itself was very pretty and had trails that hooked up to local hiking trails where we geocached a couple times. It was poorly run, however. The office was closed when we arrived so the only assistance we had checking in was from the wife of the camp host that really had no idea what was going on. The site we were given was basically a giant mud puddle so we asked to move to one of the many empty sites available, which she begrudgingly allowed us to do. Because the campground was mostly empty Canada geese had overrun the place and therefore so did their droppings so we really didn't hang out outside much. My husband used the restrooms once and then forbid me from even entering the building because they were so gross - and coming from my unsqueamish hubby - that's saying a lot. Thankfully we were just passing through so we only stayed here one night. Probably wouldn't go back. - LoveShack

We stayed in this park overnight only. The sites are huge and very separate from each other. The night we stayed, the mosquitoes were so big and plentiful they could carry you away. Setting up was a real challenge with all the bugs. The first site we chose had no electric active, so after getting all set up, we had to unset up and move. The campground itself is very nice in terms of its natural settings being preserved. I think this might be used for long summer stayers as well as campers who just stay a night or two. Kind of like having your own north cottage. The people are friendly and accommodating. We walked over to the restaurant and had dinner which was fun. There is no path really between the campground and restaurant yet. The road worked. I think a standard price of $40 is a little high actually; the price does go down with longer stays, however. We were given a discount for confusion over directions and the terrible mosquitoes. That was so nice. We might stay again but the bugs were so disruptive. I guess sometimes you have to pick either stay in a parking lot with fewer bugs or woods with more bugs. We never know quite what is best. These people are trying hard, are kind and responsive and the spaces are lovely. - twestover

We like this campground because of the big sites and privacy. The campground is new, so they don't have showers/bathrooms yet. They do have a dump site, but no water hooked up there yet. Not sure about the pump service. We spoke with one seasonal guest who said he pumps himself out, as it never seems to get done when he asks. There isn't a playground, but lots of kids biking and playing with the big sites. The lake is across the highway from the campground, which is a little inconvenient, but there's a beautiful public beach there. Location is nice with Island Lake and Boulder Lake right nearby, as well as many other lakes within minutes. A short drive/bike from the campground, you'll find a couple of bars/restaurants, an ice cream shop, and a convenience store with gas and groceries. - Mncamper

This is a very small campground, but it has spacious sites. It is not on the water, but only about 10 min to Two Harbors & Lake Superior. All the sites are pull-throughs. Ours was somewhat level, but we did need our jack pads & jacks. The owners were very nice and gave us some suggestions about things in town. There are only a couple sites with sewer hookups, but they do offer honey wagon service, which I think is free, but I don't know if there is a limit. - goldenruler

Nice park with pull through sites. Lots of trees. Convenient to most of the north shore of Lake Superior. Owners were really nice and helpful. - DYK 640
Aug 2015 - $34.00
Nice campground. Sites were barely level enough for us at 40 feet. WiFi was spotty. Good power and water. You pay an extra $4 for 50-amp and you also pay $4 extra if you use air conditioning. Two Harbors was lovely. Staff was friendly and helpful. - sfrantz

There are 2 sections - an old and newer terraced section. We stayed in the terraced area. The campground was busy and asked us to move to the older section after the 1st night. Rather than go to the smaller tighter sites, we moved on to Duluth. The nice office staff said a lot of people have to move, sometimes 2 or 3 times, so make your reservation early. Satellite was good in the new section. - zcaptain

We stayed a week for an RV Haulin' HitchHikers rally.
We were in the new sites south of Park road.
We loved the terraced sites that are spacious with well maintained roads and grass.
sites are gravel pads that are level and raked with 50amp full hookups.
The view of Lake Superior is Awesome out our back window.
Hookups are provided on both sides so Motor homes can pull in and face the lake.
The sites north of Park road are 30A and vary with EWS and some with on EW.
Staff was very friendly when we checked in, otherwise we had no interaction with them. - Calibrateguy

We echo the other reviews for this campground, as its just a basic place to spend the night, or if you are just needing a place to park your rv while you tour the area. No credit cards accepted, cash preferred over checks. We have AT&T and a Hot Spot that worked great, so we never use the park WiFi. No cable, and over the air is hit and miss. The single shower was OK. A bit pricey for what you get, other choices in Two Harbors are better, but plan ahead as they fill up quickly. - AlaskaJack

Nice small park, only 25 sites. Our site #25 was the first one in but by far the largest. Next to road to marina but little traffic. Wi-Fi at the office but not at the site; water pressure was a bit low. Otherwise a great little park with just the basics, which is all we need. Oh, and there's a small vintage plane and a UFO! - Liv2RV

This is a very rustic RV park with full hook-ups. It is not MH friendly. We were the only Class A in the park. Gravel sites are not very level. Site did have a picnic table and a fire pit. No laundry room, pool or cable tv. Wi-fi was free but very slow. There is a MH friendly RV park about 5 miles north. - Michael Kibler
