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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

This is a wonderful municipal campground in the city of Two Harbors. We came up for our nephew's wedding and decided to camp to enjoy the fall colors. Many of the sites are very spacious while others are right next to each other. The lakefront sites would be best suited for a truck top camper as they are very short. The bathrooms are clean, but there are only 2 stalls and 2 showers. One more of each would be nice. One shower is set up weird with a "stall" wall divider and chair. If you don't put up everything your stuff will get wet. We hosted wedding guests for the day and they were not charged anything to visit. Also, if you camp near the stairs to Lake Superior you will get cut throughs as there is no path. We can't wait to come back in the summer or again for fall colors. Not sure where previous submitter stayed but our water and electric were on the correct side. We pulled in wrong the first time in the pull-thru and turned around. All sites seemed to be correct where we stayed. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Good stuff: Nice views, showers and bathroom cleans, paved roads with gravel sites. Fast Wi-Fi and Verizon Mi-Fi works great. Bad stuff: This park is laid out backassward. It looks like the sites were built to pull in from one direction and the hook ups are on the other. Net result is that it's very hard to get into the sites with out running over something that can tear up your tires. We had a 36' MH and we had to be very careful not to run over the fire pit with the bus or the toad. Best bet is to unhook before you use the pull throughs. If you have a back in watch the vehicles parked in the other sites so you don't hit them. However the sites were flat and there was plenty of room for the slides. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice park. They must have improved the Wi-Fi. We watched a movie on Hulu (w/no buffering). Pet friendly. There can be long lines at the dump station so plan ahead. Firewood available. Nice views of Lake Superior. Boat launch nearby. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is owned by the city. It is a very good one for being city owned. They have two $49 Wi-Fi routers sitting on counters and reception is bad all over the camp. I have a USB omnidirectional antenna, so I was OK, but my neighbors were unable to use it, the speed was so slow. The views here are wonderful. You look out over a bluff to Lake Superior. There is a rocky beach. We drove up about 85 miles to Grand Mariha's and saw all of the listed sights along the way. We stayed 2 nights, there was so much to do. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.
