We stayed in site B34, which is in the new section. They are in the process of building a bathroom and shower building for this section. The sites are nice size, and fairly level. Site 34 is on the lowest level, close to the lake. We selected this site because we thought it would have less road noise than the upper row, but it turned out the opposite. The road between our site and the lake was noisy at night, where the upper sites or the middle row sites are further from the lake but quieter at night. Needed two lengths of sewer hose and they put the sewer access at the back of the lots instead of next to the electrical connection near the middle of the site. We would stay here again, but on the middle or upper level sites. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the new section of the campground and really enjoyed the view of Lake Superior. There is no privacy between sites, but the view makes up for that. For those with Class As or Cs it's nice they give you the option to pull in or back in so you can choose your view out the back or front window. But for those of us in large 5th wheels, pulling in isn't an option, and it's rather awkward when your next door neighbor in a class A pulls in so you end up sharing a yard basically like a buddy site even when you didn't want a buddy site. We had 3 neighbors the whole week that pulled in next to us like that so we had a buddy site the whole week. The first few days were awful because the neighbors were so unfriendly and rude. I mean if we're going to be that close to each other we can at least be friendly right? Well, thankfully they left and the next people that pulled in were so much nicer and we enjoyed a campfire with them. We really don't like "buddy sites" unless we know the people next to us, but these sites are set up so that chances are you may be getting a buddy site whether you like it or not. Anyway, other than that we enjoyed this campground. The staff is very friendly and the location is great for visiting the north shore, Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Lighthouse. Verizon 4G coverage was good there too. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a well-engineered park for Class A motorhomes. Roads are wide and paved. Sites are packed gravel surrounded by grass. Curbs and stairs with banisters are placed at appropriate spots. There is a view of Lake Superior from most of the terraced sites, each of which has two sewers so rvs can be placed to maximize the view. We could find no Wi-Fi service; Verizon had a strong signal. It is a city-owned park. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

When we checked the website to make reservations, about a month before our intended arrival, it showed nothing available. On a lark, we called and were able to get a site. So don't necessarily believe their website. Give them a call. Arriving was a bit confusing. As you turn off of highway 62, the office is on your immediate left. There is no sign, but that is where you check in. I think your experience in the campground will all depend on what section you are in. Our experience and rating is based on our stay in site 22, but the comments would apply to sites 1 through 66. This is a very close-packed campground, with only a few sites having a reasonable view of Lake Superior. If we had put out our awning, we could have provided shade for the camper next door. On the other side our view was of a very white camper about ten feet away. We did have a bit of a view of the Lake out our front window. Our picnic table and grill were behind our neighbors site. We had good, strong 30 amp and water at our site. We did not have the worst site by any means, most had no lake view and were even more crowded. It was not quite since there were so many people crowded into a small space. The campground roads are one-way and the angles are wrong on the turns. Even in our relative short motorhome, we had to back up once to get around a turn. The dump station is also very tight with wrong-angle turns. At our site satellite was not a problem since it was fairly open. We had good strong Verizon data and voice. We did look at the other sites and many were much better than those in this loop. Sites 1B through 34B are large, reasonably separated, and most have a lake view. This seems to be a newer section of the park and is set up for bigger rigs. Sites 67 through 91 are significantly better than our loop was. Sites 92 through 102 are quite close to Highway 61, a very busy road in this area. We certainly would not stay in this campground in the same loop as this visit. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

The new terraced section is ideal for larger rigs. Each site has two sewer hookups so you can either back in or pull in forward. Pulling in with a motor home gives you a nice view of Lake Superior out your windshield.
The older section has trees and many sites have a nice view of Lake Superior, but many of the sites are closer together and quite un-level. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
