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

Non-electric campground. Lots of space between sites with plenty of trees, very secluded. Roads are narrow with some tight turns, but we had no problems with our 34' trailer. Not many sites to handle big trailers. Showers were clean, but water was too hot for my liking, only one temperature, and you have to keep pushing the button to get water. Lots of nice hiking and biking trails right from the campground. 1/2 mile walk to the falls from the campground. Kids enjoyed climbing on the rocks and waterfalls. Mosquitos were not too bad, but the flies were terrible. Our site was 2- tiered. The camper was about 3 feet higher than the picnic table and fire ring. Steep hill connected the two levels. - Shootecogo

While this campground has beautiful modern bathrooms, our shower experience ruined our opinion of the overall facility. The showers have no temperature control (ice cold water was only available). To take a shower you must continually push the single control button. The sites are wooded and nicely separated. However, the large number of mosquitoes prevented us from enjoying our campfire. - D&H

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

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

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

Doesn't get any better than the views from many of the sites! Friendly staff. It is a popular location and is therefore very crowded but the sites are all reasonably large. - jwlbal

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 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

Its all about the location if you want to be in the action. It was fun seeing the marina activity. Our 42' motorhome squeezed into a full hookup with a limited waterview. Last night we moved to elec/water site which has a much nicer view facing town and water. Be prepared to face traffic when leaving marina for day trips. You have to drive in and out of a congested tourist area. Even coming in with the coach was a bit daunting with a few tight turns through the shopping/dining district. We really enjoyed the Duluth area, golf and a few good restaurant meals. We never got their WIFI going and didn't bother with owners to try so not sure about that. We had our satellite and mifi. Limited doggie areas in the marina but again, it was fun to be on the water. - gardener

Honestly, we were somewhat disappointed. Our checkin was performed by a rather grouchy man in a dirty boat yard shop. At that time we were informed that although they advertised we Good Sam, no discount was offered. He did offer to lend us a water pressure regulator as the yard pressure was 120 psi. Wow! I always carry my own regulator in any case. Although the facility was indeed unique for many, after having managed several boat yards, it was a bit ho-hum for me. Actually the yard looked pretty run down. It was kinda nice watching the 1000 foot ore boats come into harbor though. The electric service was stable and strong. Sewer clean and accessable. WiFi virtually unuseable. Verizon signal strong in the area. As we have relatives in Duluth we will probable return to the area, we may very well choose a different place to stay though. - Airstreamers

Friendly owner on site. This is an older park, so sites are small and tight, our 43ft motorhome barely fit. But the people next to us with a smaller coach were just fine. Water was fine, we had 30A and no sewer or WiFi. But it was convenient for our purposes, and it is a good place for an overnight stay. If we ever get back in this area we'll stay here again. - jOHNONTHEROAD

We picked this campground because it was closest to a Freightliner shop that we needed to visit in Superior. Basically it is a mobile home park with a few extra sites available for nightly rentals. It was well kept and met all our needs for an overnight. Sites were level with decent gravel and nice grass between them. Big-rig access was good. No recreation or special facilities here, but we weren’t looking for them. Credit cards are not accepted. We would stay here again. - dweymouth

This was a run of the mill RV park (not campground). It was quite lovely in the back but the whole place smelled like sewer and trash. The dumpster wasn't emptied the whole time we were there, but we did witness them use a frontloader to smush all the trash down, which just added to the bad smell. The "office" was an old bar that was extremely cluttered and dark and gave me an uneasy feeling. The woman running it was not friendly one bit and had many, many rules that she loved to shout at the campers. Really not a pleasant experience. Especially when you are a quiet person who keeps to yourself. She was quite abrasive. - Zoey Katz

This is an old campground. No WiFi except at office. No cable. Over-the-air TV okay. Verizon cell data spotty. Sites are spacious and level. Each has water, electric, and sewer. Bathrooms and showers are spacious and clean, if old. Has a pool and a limited playground. Definitely NOT the 4 star rating we saw!
Could we stay here again? Sure. - Sir_Charles395

Nice, quiet country park just minutes from Duluth. There was a bit of traffic
noise in the morning but didn't notice it at other times. Pads were gravel or concrete strips with grass between, and a few small trees. Pull throughs were long enough and alternated so that we were not really next to the neighbors. Manager was very friendly and a great tour guide! - Liv2RV

State parks require annual permit or day pass. Rustic camping with some "modern" pit toilets. Central water faucets around the park. No electric, no water at camp sites, no dump station or sewer available. This park is absolutely gorgeous with rapids, water falls, flowing over ancient granite rock ridges. Play in the water or fish in the river, hike the marked trails with points of interest. Mostly private campsites with trees and bush between sites. Love this park and connecting with nature here. It is a "mystic" place to be one with nature. Camped here many times. Always a rejuvinating experience.
Our travel trailer is 24 foot long and that is about the max length for most of the sites. There are a couple of sites that have a longer angled back in that could hold a bigger rig. But many sites are only big enough for your vehicle and a tent or pop up camper.
The day use area is busy on nice weekends because you can wade in the river and climb the water falls and rapids. Take your time to explore the trails and follow the river up and down both sides. Many hidden spots that are treasures of nature. - Macmasterson
