Note - 2019 Bathrooms are a tear down, no flush toilets or showers. We're self contained, so not an issue and we finally scored a site on the lake in 2019. As usual, Temperance exceeded our expectations for hiking and camping (see previous posts). We have never experienced such bad mosquitoes as we did this past summer in July. This campground is so popular that we weren't able to complete our stay in our favorite site. Our next site, 21 was closer to the lake, which was wonderful. We camped at Temperance River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Loved this park. We spent 6 nights in site 24E (electric site) in the C loop, which is the quiet loop. Site was wooded and mostly private - we couldn't see other campsites - other than the one directly across the road from us. Across the road and down a few steps we found a beautiful trail to the lake, where we could hike along the shore and rarely see a person. We camped at Temperance River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The roads are paved so a lot of people biked through the park and the park is connected to a bike trail. Make reservations early - this park fills up fast.

This is one of our top 5 favorite State Parks. The park is very well maintained and the bathrooms are very clean. Due to the heavy rain, the river was unusually high and fierce. Hiking is always great here, but can get a little congested. Bike riding or walking on the Superior trail is highly recommended. Make reservations early because this campground is full from June through mid-October. We stayed in site 37 electric, which is the size of 2 campsites. The fire pit and picnic table are on the opposite side, but we didn't mind due to the amount of space in this site. The campground map does not list that site 19 is a pull-thru site and is large enough to accommodate a big rig. The sites on the lake look wonderful, although, we've never been lucky enough to get one.

(Update to the previous review: this is not the only electric State Park on the North Shore. Tettegouche (our favorite) and Cascade River also have electric sites.)

There is no dump station here, so you will need to go to the town of Silver Bay, about 20-25 minutes South or to North to Cascade River to dump. We camped at Temperance River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There were bear sightings during our visit. Just be careful not to leave out food or trashcans.

Temperance River State park speaks for itself. It is currently the only state park on the north shore with electric sites. Almost without exception, every site is nice, most with shade and some have great views of Lake Superior. We camped in site 22 which is in the electric loop and although one the lake side it does not have a lake view due to trees. The restroom is kept clean and has 2 showers on each side. Be prepared for possible invasions of black flies - a screen tent would be worthwhile to ensure being able to sit outside. We were there for 8 nights and 2 of those days were intolerable for sitting around the fire due to flies. This is part of the north shore experience, though. Weather was warm and we were able to swim in the mouth of the river where it feeds into Lake Superior. Be safe in the river! Worth a destination camping vacation! Reserve in advance as this park can be hard to get into, although we were surprised to see available sites the entire time we were there. We camped at Temperance River State Park in a Travel Trailer.
