We stayed in one of the newer tiered campsites in the upper tier. We had a picnic table and fire ring on our site which were in the front of the site so that you have an unobstructed view of the lake. We also had a beautiful view of the water from our front window. The deer come into the park in the evening. We used our satellite for TV and the wifi signal was strong but very slow. Verizon worked well. The showers in the new bathhouse must do not have curtained dressing areas so if you use them be prepared for your towel/clothes to get wet. There's a beach area across the road and a very nice paved walking path next to Lake Superior. It's a little pricey but we would stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Two downside issues ,road noise, and it rained the whole time we were there and there wasn't enough gravel to keep it from being muddy. But to be fair they had record rainfall. We were in the new area on the top side which seemed to be the best area . There was much more room at these sites . The view of Lake Superior would have been wonderful if it wouldn't have been fogged over our whole visit. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Our site was a little awkward -- the sewer hookup was pretty far to the front of the site, thankfully our hose is pretty long. The water hookup was on the wrong side of the site, so we had to buy an additional hose and pull it under the trailer to reach without creating a trip hazard. Lake view from the road, not the site. Lots of highway noise. The site was well shaded and spacious, just not well laid-out. Additionally, there was a tree in the gravel area that prevented us from backing into the site a little further. The fire ring and picnic table were in the back of the site. Everything was on a slope, slanting downhill. There is a public beach area and lovely walking trails about half a mile away. Beautiful views of Lake Superior. The newer section had amazing views of the lake, but no trees for shade. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The new sites offer great views of the water and the full hookups are on both sides so that you can back in or drive in a motor home We got all the networks on our batwing - we did not use the new restrooms in the area We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

There is a new section of the park. Great sites. Tiered so that all have a view of the bay. New restrooms/showers were great. Spacious sites. We were there in a motorhome. Our spot was a pull in so that we faced the bay with a view. Well set up. Plenty of room. Reservations during the summer are a must, call early. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This is a city run camp ground. They are very accommodating in that they let you put extra tents on your site ($10 per night) and have extra vehicles ($5 per night). In the original camp ground, sites 1-66, all of the sites along the lake are very tight. There may only be two feet between your awning and your neighbor's camper. The gravel pads are built up so that they are flat, which makes the ground between each pad sloped up or down, so the small strip of grass you have between campers is not very useful. The tightness of these lake side spots also makes for a very awkward setup for hook-ups. There are hook-up posts at the left edge of the pads, but those are your neighbor's hook-ups. They would be on the wrong side for your camper. So our neighbor's hook-up post was literally underneath our awning. This is not the case with the sites that are not on the lake as they are more spacious. There is not much for trees or shade here. There are trees along side of sites 1-15, and between 48-66 and 67-74. There is a newer section of the campground on the other side of the road. These rows are tiered, so every spot has a great view of the lake, but there are no trees there. The bath houses were clean, but old. The showers have cinder block walls and the only thing providing privacy and security is a thin, plastic shower curtain. The bath house is also quite a way from most of the camp sites. Having a spectacular view of Lake Superior made it worth it for us to sacrifice camp site size. (Note, our first night there was a huge motor home on the lake side next to us, completely blocking our view of anything. The next two nights there was a tent on that spot so we got our view back.) We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We loved this park. While more expensive than we prefer, it was absolutely pristine. We stayed in the "new" area, with the stadium-style sites. Each site had an incredible view of the lake. Each site had plenty of room, and the grass was neat and mowed. There was a bit of confusion amongst our neighbors as to whose sewer was whose, but it all worked out just fine. We would definitely go back! We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

First of all, this is a campground not a resort. As others have said, it has two parts, a newer area that easily fits larger RVs and the older part with smaller sites. We were in site 99 with a 37 ft motorhome and we fit fine. This was in a small area of 11 sites where half were on a hill above the lake with a beautiful view and the others were near the highway with a partial lake view. There was road noise in the daytime but it was quiet at night. The Wifi worked well most of the time! The sites in the older section are gravel and grass and of various sizes, levelness, and spaciousness. Some are full hookup and some are only water and electric. This is a good place to stay for a few days while exploring the Two Harbors area. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

The campground seemed well kept and well planned. Camping sites near the main building have toilet/shower facilities. Many treed sites have lake views, some have lake access. We didn't check out any toilet/shower facilities. The terraced, lake view sites are in a separate section directly across a park street, and sunrise views over Lake Superior. Our site had dual 30/50 amp electric, water and sewer hook ups, a picnic table, a fire ring. We parked facing the lake. There's a gravel/sand beach (across a park street), plus a short walking trail along Lake Superior's shoreline. We don't recall any playground facilities...no grandkids this trip. On-site workers seemed pleasant and helpful. A dump site is located near the main building, where propane and firewood bundles are sold. Leashed pets are welcome. We camped at Burlington Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Plan to layer clothing and bring comfortable walking/hiking shoes for exploring. Two Harbors is a short walk directly behind our campsite. Restock groceries at Super-One. Betty's Pie Shop was one of the best we've eaten while traveling. Plan to see Gooseberry Falls Park and MN's #1 visited tourist sight, Split Rock Lighthouse (photos can be obstructed by fog). Duluth is a day trip away. Schedule a Gleensheen Mansion tour, or take your chances at the gate.

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.

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 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.
