3 Parks near Marathon, Ontario
Sep 2015 - $30.00
Nice separation between sites with trees. Only 14 spaces. Good for overnight or bear hunting. Some highway noise. Small store. - suerover

This is an adequate overnight stay. Price reflects the Passport America rate and US rather than Canadian dollars. We had site #1 so we were facing the highway and there was a lot of noise. It also seems that this site is well used by dogs. The showers in the unisex restrooms were moldy so we chose not to use them. 15 amp service was sufficient for our use but we monitored carefully. We were able to get satellite TV in our site. Internet was free for 24 hours and worked. However, it was slow in the evening. The staff were very friendly and helpful. - Summer Minnesotan

We used this as a stopping point going through northern Ontario, and it was a disappointment. Paid 19.75 using Passport America. It was more of a season camp for transient workers and hunter types. WiFi only good for 1 hour but didn't work at all. Only has 15 amp service. Not recommended for RV'rs. I guess you get what you pay for. - gypsy parrotheads

Camped in area 1,best for big rigs,Beautiful view of lake,large open sites,showers and restrooms very clean.Road into area 1 very skinny with many dead tree branches that can tear up your roof or scatch the sides of your trailer.Beautiful long beach but covered in dead trees,be careful where you walk.Lots of history about campground so visit the information building. - too tall

This is a unique opportunity to park overlooking Lake Superior. If you are a big rig be sure to reserve either a pull thru or Lot 25e as most other sites are very treed and tight. Site 25e is the largest site in this loop and is open for satellite reception and has lots of privacy and a great view. Park is isolated and 15 miles from Marathon. Come for the view and some hiking if the weather is nice. - Freedom Bus

This park is closer to Marathon. It is a jewell of the OPP system. We loved it and plan to visit it next year, another park close by would be Rainbow Falls but I would recommend the lake section past the main entrance west toward Thunder Bay. Lake front sites are the best, beautiful views and the best sunsets I've seen over the lake. - birdbrains

The campground itself is located in beautiful surroundings. The road to enter the campground is so bumpy, I thought the trailer would flip on its side...
Called the city ahead to make reservation, was told that my site would have my name and permit on sitepost. To this day, I still don't know if we camped in the right site... Most of the sites are not numbered, never found any permit or other paper with my info on it. I suspect other campers used most of the permits/reservations papers to start their fire!
Hookups are good. Free firewood. No Wifi.
Because of the confusion and poor road conditions to get to park, I'm dropping rating to 4 stars.
Next morning, a city pickup was doing it's "security" rounds in the park, but was going so fast I had to tell my kids to stay on the site and not venture anywhere else. The guy almost ran over another couple walking their dog. Guy eventually stopped and I went to tell him to slow down as this is campground (he should know), and he told me "whatever" and just drove away! For this, I'm dropping rating to 3 stars (and made formal complaint to city). - Merveilleuse

We stayed 4 nights in a 40' motorhome with 4 slide-outs. We had one of the two long pull through lots, which was more than adequate for our motor-home & 2 vehicles. Water, sewer, & 50 amp electric were reliable. Some sites had services on the wrong side, although our lot had services located on the correct side. Pads are level, hard, gravel. Reservations are made during regular business hours through the city offices. No staff on site, however park maintenance staff are working every day & upkeep is excellent. On site laundromat is clean with relatively new machines. We would definitely stay here again. - Biker2

Very nice park, all freshly renovated. Right on the lake. Good wifi. Good staff. Big sites. It was a very nice stay. The water and hydro (power) were pretty far from my site #5, but my lines reached. - sfrantz
