Very nice state park campground. We had to reserve several months ahead of time for a mid-week site. Very brushy between sites which restricts all air flow but makes for great privacy. Very few mosquitos. Nice hiking trails in the park. We camped at Bear Head Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

The rate does not include the required daily entry fee or purchase, as we did, an annual pass for motorhome and towed vehicle (for $43 per year), and is for a no-hookup site. By the time we got around to making reservations, only dry camping sites were available, so that is what we got. This is a heavily wooded campground. Our site, and most, were heavily shaded. There is a beautiful lake, but is not a feature of the campground. On our loop, the trees were very close and scraped the side of the RV. A little trimming would be nice. Because of tree cover, satellite was not possible, even with our portable dish. The sites are well-separated and had lots of vegetation for privacy. We had OK, Verizon data and voice coverage. We had mechanical problems and all of the staff was great. We would stay here again while passing through, but not as a destination park. We camped at Bear Head Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You can rent canoes to go out on the lake. Come with supplies as the closest (small) grocery will be in Ely.

We were disappointed when we drove through the campground as the majority of sites were quite small for a larger motorhome - just fine for tests or pop-ups though which is what most others were using. Sites were pretty wooded and the roads and sites had low hanging tree branches. Sites 51-57 look like they are along the lake front but many trees prevent a good view of the lake. Only electric loop is sites 25 - 50. We camped at Bear Head Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park with lake access. Campground has some electric sites. Non electric sites seem a bit larger. Good space in between sites. Park offers boat rentals with electric motors. Good fishing lake. Dump station and water are available. Enough room for truck and 26 foot trailer. We camped at Bear Head Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
