This a little different review as the park was officially closed for the season. This means the water is off and no restrooms are available. There is no staff on site but there is electricity. This city-owned park does allow cold weather camping for only 20$ a night with a drop box to pay. The park is not busy this time of year which makes it likely you will get a Lake Superior waterfront spot. We stayed in the older section of the park just feet from the shore. Was fairly cold at night with temps below 30F. Clear nights made for very good stargazing over the lake. As there was few people, it was very quiet other than some heavy truck noise from the highway. Park is within walking distance to town. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very Nice City Campground. New 50 amp Big Rig Sites with water view. 3 Rows, higher better views and more wind, top row has curb that could be problem for large 5th wheels. Utilities strong. Dog Friendly, Verizon OKClear skies, walk to restaurants about 1/4 mile. Lots of Geese in morning, messy. Will stop again. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As previous reviews have stated there are two camping areas. We were in the new section on the top tier. Yes- the curb made backing our 5th wheel into the site more difficult but we managed. Yes- the geese are terrible. Have had problems with our dogs developing intestinal problems after camping where these geese were. We tried to keep them away from our site and the young workers even went after them in their carts. All that being said the view was possibly one of the best we have ever had. We sat out in the evenings with a campfire watching the tankers come in to Two Harbors. Wish we had planned to stay longer. Lots to see and do in the area. We made it to Split Rock Lighthouse but did not have time to go into Duluth. That will have to be for another trip. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We are from Texas and miss our HEB when we travel. The SuperOne grocery in Two Harbors is the best grocery we've seen since Texas!

Very nice city owned campground on Lake Superior. We were in the new section with the lake out our back window. The park is terraced so that all sites have a view and all are back in. Excellent utilities, clear sky for satellite and nice grass between each site. i made reservations ahead and avoided having to park in the street to register. Would have stayed longer, but founders day event sold the place out. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice site backing up to the Burlington Bay, electric only, no water on site.

Young fellow in the office was not very helpful. He charged us $30 a night when the sign as we entered the park clearly said $28. He said that was last years rate and refused to honor that rate. would not stay here again. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here with a rally group and loved most of the park. Since it is brand new, there is neither wifi or cable but the satellites worked well and we had good cell service, so mifi was good. My big complaint is that they put curbs across from the sites, making a tight turn to get backed in with a long trailer. We all drove over the curb to get in but if it was muddy this might be a problem. Otherwise, we liked the park and will return. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the "new" section on the top row. Nice level sites, the size and spacing of the sites are fine. Any size rig can fit, I do agree with previous post that the curbs could make it a little challenging. Traffic from the road can be heard. But the view from these sites are what you are paying for. Across the street is the original section. There are water front sites there, but some of the sites are small and close together. It is a more natural area with trees. The pups loved the room to walk. No WiFi, but Verizon and Sprint both worked well. Short drive to lighthouse and historic downtown. We would definitely stay here again We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an update to my review from last year. We stayed in the new expansion area this summer. This area is designed with big rigs in mind. Plenty of room to maneuver. Terraced views overlooking the bay. Easy walk down to the beach. Sites are reasonably wide with large grass area in front for a picnic table and fire ring. Pads are gravel, roads are paved. Sites have double hookups so motorhomes can pull in forward and trailers can backup in. No shade in this area. No bathrooms or showers so you have to be self contained. Excellent satellite and tv reception. Good Verizon cell signal. Wi-Fi has not been deployed to this area yet but it's possible to pick up a signal from sites to the visitors center office. Excellent water pressure. Dog park about two blocks away. When checking into this section it's best to park in the visitors center lot and walk across the road to the campground office. Otherwise you will have a lot of maneuvering to do to get back over to this site. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate and comments apply to new class A section only. Three terraced rows of RV sites each with a view of Burlington Bay on Lake Superior. Great ore ship watching. Paved Roads and gravel sites. Each site has two sets of full hookups so pull in or back in for your best view of Lake Superior. Was not able to connect to their WiFi but Verizon Hotspots worked fine. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the "New" section. It had only been open for a few weeks. Huge sites with beautiful view of Lake Superior when the fog wasn't there. Quiet except for some road noise which was bearable. Very difficult to back into as sites are aligned so you must back in from the right which is blindside backing. There is curb in front to hang up on. Sites are gravel which was not packed down well. No trees or easy access to bathrooms. You need to go to another part of the campground to use facilities. Hopefully, it will get better as they work out the kinks. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Most of the sites have great views of Lake Superior. Sites are reasonably sized with easy access. Some are shady but most are in the open. Wi-Fi connection was good from our site but bandwidth was spotty. Excellent satellite and local TV reception. Easy access to a local trail/park for biking to downtown. Golf course across street. Two blocks down is a car wash with an RV bay. Campground is expanding into a new area with 34 new big rig sites with 50 amp hookups. That area should be complete by Fall 2013. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

The Views are AMAZING! If I could get a site along the water with full hookups, I would totally stay again. But the showers/bathroom are so gross it makes it necessary to be self sufficient. Nice playground, spaces are grass and close together but the view is really worth it. If you are back along the highway it's NOISY! I say it's a 7 hubby says a 4, you decide!

We called in January of this year and requested a site where the dish could get a signal. Check-in was easy and the roads were nice to the grassy area that was our site. But we drove by the site because we could not see any hookups, we thought it was a parking area, a very well shaded parking area. The power and sewer were way down the hill by the site which shared the water pedestal with the site on the other side. After hooking up we found out the roof mounted satellite dish would not work. Why the people in the office don't know the sites is beyond me. We found out later, after we left our water pressure regulator and water softener on the pedestal on the wrong side after we did our normal walk around before leaving on the usual side, we found out that the office people never go into the park. Makes you appreciate parks with owners on site. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

For starters, we started calling this park during office hours (8AM-8PM), 3 days before our expected arrival and kept getting a message saying that they would return our call. We never got the callback and just showed up early Monday afternoon. We were able to get one of the last few FHU sites for 2 days. Several hours after we arrived we got the "promised" callback. Bad customer service. The park has 66 W&E sites in an area in the front section of the park. This area is very congested and includes many popups and tents. There are 2 FHU loops. All RV sites appear to be back-ins. The W&E area has a bathhouse with 2 showers and 2 toilets for each sex. The first FHU loop has a similar bathhouse. As previously noted, most sites have a lake view and some views are unimpeded. The only stairs to the shore are behind sites 23 and 25. It is only 1-2 miles to most of the sights (lighthouse, RR depot, ore docks, etc.) in town. Most customers appear to be locals (MN and WI) who book their 1-2 weeks vacations well in advance. So, call early if you are trying to get site in the summer and hope they get back to you. Staying here to see the local sights is worth the effort it may take to get a site in this park. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Burlington Bay was my first RV trip of the season. I had a site facing Lake Superior, which was absolutely gorgeous. A long rocky beach was just about twenty steps down. I enjoyed wonderful quite time down there. It is a city-run campground so amenities are few. The only critical comment was the condition of the bathroom on my final morning there, but I called after I left and they were very apologetic and said they cleaned it up. Let's just say that some people are just animals and the campground can't help that. I will be back, but next time I need to bring a bike so I can bike into Two Harbors or up to Betty's Pies.
