4 Parks near Pukaskwa National Park, Ontario
Jul 2012 - $36.00
Very nice National Park on Lake Superior. The campsites are spaced well and are mostly woodsy with good privacy. Wi-Fi is available at the visitor center. Really helpful ranger/warden with lots of good ideas, suggestions and answers. There are trails to walk and explore including a boardwalk on the way to the cove. Both of my GPS units failed to get me on the right road here so for routing purposes take hwy 627 south from Hwy 17 near Marathon and it will lead you to the park. No store, so bring provisions. I would return here. - exportman

This is the campground at Hattie Cove. There are other camp sites for hikers scattered in the backwoods. Great hikes to the shore & into woods. Very quiet. Site very level on gravel pad. Electric nearby. Visitor center with rentals of canoes, etc. Great scenery along shore. Enjoyed some short hikes during short stay. Will go back to explore more. Friendly staff. - Browndogs2

This is a lovely little municipal campground just a couple of miles off the TransCanada highway. The town of Marathon is on the north shore of Lake Superior, and this little gem is on a small inland lake with warm shallow water and sandy beaches.
This campground has a number of 30 amp sites and tent sites and it has 2 pull-through big rig sites with 50 amp full hook up service. The site was satellite friendly, and there was cable TV and WiFi! Seriously!!!
This is a self-serve campground - I made reservations via email and phone with a town employee during the week, and my site was marked reserved with my name when I arrived. Self-serve/ self-pay is also an option. The roads were paved leading to the campground, and were easy to navigate!
Not much going on in this little town, but this was a great stop over between Thunder Bay and Sault Ste Marie ON. - MerBee

Pretty park. Web Site shows cable tv. Was not able to get any stations at all. We bought a new cable and still nothing. Expensive for what they offer. One utility pole for 2 sites so can be hard to hook up. Make sure you have extension cords. We took a pull through and pulled in the right direction for the utilities. Busy campground with road workers. - normdave

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

Price reflects Passport America rate, including tax. Campsite was decent enough with fire ring and picnic table. Noise from highway and trains. Bathrooms seemed like they hadn't been cleaned in a while. Water was almost scalding in the shower and you cannot control the temperature. Glad I didn't pay full price. - MSSW

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

Stayed in Area 1 best for larger rvs especially with slide outs.Access to sites all over park is scary as the dead trees along the roads can easily rip into your roof or sidewall.Like all parks in Ontario roads are not very wide for todays bigger rvs and the parks wont do any cutting of branches.Turns at the end of each road too tight as well as trees too close at many sites Beautiful sight when weather is good but cold when not sunny. - too tall

This is nice little provincial park on the shores of Lake Superior. We reserved online, yet had to re-register upon arrival with the person at the kiosk asking all the questions that I had answered on the online registration form - such inefficiency! Waterfront sites are quite wonderful, though tend to be quite windy. Sites one row back from the water are better suited for sitting outside and having a campfire. And if you enjoy late sunsets, this is the place to be in June when sunset is after 10:15pm. There are laundry facilities (wash $1.50, $2.00 dryer). Fill up your freshwater tank at the dumpstation as you cannot attach a hose to the water spigots through the campground. And good luck finding the location of their garbage cans. Rogers but not Bell has phone service within the park. The Lookoff Trail provides a nice view of Lake Superior. I don't remember the price, and am unable to submit this review unless a price is given, so the $30 campground fee likely is an error. - driftdiver1

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
