50 amp, FHU, pull-through site. Easy access to Hwy 2. Been here before and not much has changed since our last visit. WIFI is now only in the office, several OTA TV channels available. Cash or check only. This is an easy stopping point for us and convenient to our trip eastbound on 2. - Bob & Stephanie

The old bar, registration office is filthy. I was afraid to sit anywhere, everything is dirty.
The lady is rude, a hoarder and complained about people who sleep overnight at Walmart and use her park to dump. It is too expensive for her to have the sewer emptied. We were asking for 2 services, we didn't need sewer service.
Internet in office only. They shouldn't be allowed to say free wifi, if we cannot connect at the site. We had business -unable to finish.
Too expensive for 2 services.
No Good Sam: she said she might as well close is she offers a discount. A constant complainer. We will never return. - Nicoray

Suitable for an overnight stay only because of it's convenience to the highway, this is an old park with tight but doable interior roads. Our pull-through, uneven gravel site was very close to our neighbor, and hookups, including electric, required walking through two inches of water and mud. The sites had a distinct sewer odor, and there were gnats everywhere. The office lady was very nice, but the office and "bar" had an odor of mildew that kept our visit to a minimum. No WiFi except at the office, but our Verizon cell/data worked well. No cable TV, but no obstructions to the satellites and a decent OTA selection. Crowded and noisy on our weekend stay, but fairly quiet at night with a little road noise. We'll look elsewhere if passing through the area again. - Meanderman

Friendly owner on site. This is an older park, so sites are small and tight, our 43ft motorhome barely fit. But the people next to us with a smaller coach were just fine. Water was fine, we had 30A and no sewer or WiFi. But it was convenient for our purposes, and it is a good place for an overnight stay. If we ever get back in this area we'll stay here again. - jOHNONTHEROAD

We picked this campground because it was closest to a Freightliner shop that we needed to visit in Superior. Basically it is a mobile home park with a few extra sites available for nightly rentals. It was well kept and met all our needs for an overnight. Sites were level with decent gravel and nice grass between them. Big-rig access was good. No recreation or special facilities here, but we weren’t looking for them. Credit cards are not accepted. We would stay here again. - dweymouth

This was a very nice park south of Superior, WI. The sites are really meant for smaller rigs like tents and trailers. We did rent an electric/water site, but didn't stay in it because it was too confining. The park allowed us to park on an open grassy parking area adjacent to site 1. We boondocked there. The parking area has a beautiful view of the lake and is an easy walk to the nearby falls. It is a very quiet park. Roads are paved, but narrow. Sites are grass. It is a nice place, but we would not return as it is not meant for anything larger than about 30 feet. - ghatfield

Very pretty park. I agree with other reviewers that these folks have the check-in process down! Nice facilities all-around. We enjoyed being able to walk to the Big Manitou Falls--were they ever running after a week of rain. Sites are excellent--huge, landscaped-for-privacy pull-throughs. That helps one swallow the costly camping: $20 something for the night, $9.70 ReserveAmerica fee (it was a Friday--we had to), and then the $10 vehicle fee. Holy Toledo. But we did enjoy the park quite a bit. - JCLC

Check-in was handled very well. This CG is used to getting people in and out. Roads were a little tight with small tree branches overhead. Sites are large and not right on top of each other. Electric worked properly(30AMP). This CG is right by the Manitou Falls both the large and small one. Overall this is a really nice CG, however be prepared for lots of families with children. The Park Ranger presence was seen several times a day/night. - illini777

Without a doubt the most unique campground we have stayed at. This is a modest sized kind of low budget marina. Nothing fancy. Two sides are parking. The outer portion of each side are angled sites for RVs. The east side doesen't have nearly the view the south side has. We are in 17. I look out my side window at the aerial lift bridge and downtown Duluth. We are in a motorhome. 5th wheels and trailers may not have the view because the sites are strictly back in. We are in a parking lot so it is all black top. There are two grass areas at the ends of the marina for those who need it. The bad news is that the sites are really narrow and in the summer you compete with the boaters for a very limited number of parking spots. I would imagine we wouldn't be too popular. The sites are angled quite a bit so for those with forward front doors, windows, etc. it's not too bad. There are no restrooms or showers. We would stay here again but not on a summer weekend for sure. - johns3

This is all about the location. Right on the bay, walking distance to all the tourist amenities in Canal Park and downtown. yes, it's a parking lot with rigs slipped in side by side and the bathrooms are in a portable building with marine showers but I will stay here again in a second due to the location. Could be tight quarters for larger rigs. All back-ins, no pull-throughs. - ldukeb

All back-in sites, one row has sewer hookups and another row without. Very close to the Canal Park area, just over the aerial lift bridge. Some have said its a problem to get to, but we had no difficulties with a 42 RV and tow. (Turn at Railroad, then Lake Ave rather than the gps directions which take you thru the Canal Park streets). The RV park is basically a parking area along the sides of the marina, but its all about location. We opted for a sewer site, and were assigned a site that had the electric on the passenger side which necessitated using my extension 50A cord. - zcaptain

This park can use a good cleaning around the showers, rest rooms, and office. All the buildings are covered with spider webs and bugs and the showers did not look clean at all. Our site had a view of a bunch of junk sitting alongside and the back of the office. We had site #8A and the electric was in the front of the campsite on the opposite side of the RV electric connection, so be sure to bring an extension to reach it. We were right next to the Internet transmitter but could not get on the Internet. We were told it was an old system and sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't, it never worked for us. The lady that checked us in was very polite and accommodating. This campground is way overpriced for what you get here and the quality of the campsites. - jhav

Stayed in this park for 2 nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful getting into our pull through site. The sites are all gravel very level and had no problems hooking up to all the services, we were in a full hook up site. There are many trees in the campground and the sites are large enoug h so you are not on top of each other. The campground was easy to get into and had no problem maneuvering within the campground with our 39' fifth wheel. - Jim Moyer

The campground itself was very pretty and had trails that hooked up to local hiking trails where we geocached a couple times. It was poorly run, however. The office was closed when we arrived so the only assistance we had checking in was from the wife of the camp host that really had no idea what was going on. The site we were given was basically a giant mud puddle so we asked to move to one of the many empty sites available, which she begrudgingly allowed us to do. Because the campground was mostly empty Canada geese had overrun the place and therefore so did their droppings so we really didn't hang out outside much. My husband used the restrooms once and then forbid me from even entering the building because they were so gross - and coming from my unsqueamish hubby - that's saying a lot. Thankfully we were just passing through so we only stayed here one night. Probably wouldn't go back. - LoveShack

We called about availability and got their "after hours - (4:30)" recording stating there was lots of availabilities. Being new to this area and unfamiliar w/the park, we did not realize the closeness of things! Trying to get the big rig in with a tow was a bit tricky and we had no idea of where if any there were any 50 amp sites so we just used a 30 amp converter. The site was not level - our front tires way off ground so decided not to even put slides out or level. We would not try and get in there again with a big rig. The park would be great for smaller size campers though! - Foxes

While we thoroghly enjoyed the park itself we were horrified to discover ticks on us and our dog. From merely walking through the campground, on the road, we all found ticks when we returned to our trailer. The park is beautiful and serene but I can never stay there again because of the ticks. It was unbelievable. - TravellinTam

The best thing this place has going for it is its location and natural setting in the woods. Beyond that, it needs some work. We enjoyed having a quick drive to Duluth and other area attractions. We also enjoyed sitting at our site among the trees and usually only hearing wildlife, although occasionally you could hear the distant hum of I-35. The facilities themselves are in need of upgrades and care. First, the utilities for most sites are on the wrong side of the camper, forcing you to run your electric and water across the site and underneath the camper. Several sites are unlevel and in some cases too close to their neighbors (while others enjoyed a lot of separation.) Be sure to know the layout of your site before booking as some are so close together that they are really only meant for group camping with one camper backed in, one pulled in. Even more sites were so small that only a tent would fit, let alone your car- and I'm not referring to the walk-in sites either! It's almost as though the sites were put anywhere space could be found and without the needs of campers in mind. There are bright streetlights that are left on 24-7 (so much for being "green") and are annoying at night when you're trying to watch the stars. Some of the lights are burned out (lack of maintenance) which was fortunate for us since one was right at the front of our site. The front office was hardly ever open so if you need firewood or other basic supplies, expect to go in town. The dump station was difficult to use because the road was lower than the drain; I had to constantly raise my sewer hose up and down in order to empty the tanks. Our biggest disappointment was with the bathrooms. They were clearly NOT cleaned on a regular basis as we observed the same trash (whiskers, toothpaste, hair) in the sinks and showers for several days before they were cleaned. The shower curtains themselves were stained with black mold. There was no hand soap or any way to dry your hands. We watched the cleaning lady one day sweep out the restrooms (not mop) while her car was running, so that shows you how much attention was paid to maintaining the bathrooms. Overall we were disappointed. This place could be so much more if it was maintained better and some of the sites were reworked. It's really a shame because if they did make the improvements, it would be one of the nicest places around in a beautiful part of our country. Too bad. - Fdwt994

This park is off the beaten path and can be somewhat difficult to find. Our GPS was leading us to it until we discovered that a bridge was being worked on and would delay our travel over 2 hours. An alternate route required a much longer trip through road construction, but with little choice, given the time of day we chose the alternate route. As it turned out, this was fortuitous as we discovered that the bridge had insufficient clearance for our MH.
As an earlier review noted, only cash is accepted. Checks may be honored, however it would be best to clear this before arrival. The interior roads have some tight turns which may make it difficult for larger rigs to negotiate.
This is a mostly seasonal park with a few transient sites that is literally on the river's edge. The seasonal people were friendly and helpful and the units were well kept.
Most of the transient sites were 50 amp full hook up. Although there is no cable, ample OTA television channels were available and ATT cell service was good.
Our site was a back-in site that was just long enough for our 33 ft. MH. Our traveling companions were in the same size MH with a TOAD and were in a pull-through site that wasn't quite large enough to leave the TOAD connected. - Lakewood90

This is a seasonal campground with about 8 sites available for short term campers. 6 are pull-through and other 2 are back-in sites. The interior road and all of the sites were on packed dirt and gravel. All sites have full hookup with 20/30 amp service. The electrical voltage is OK, hovering around 120. All of the utilities were up front so you might need a long electrical cord to reach the utility box. The sites were relatively level but the trees need trimming. You might have to maneuver around the trees to get into your site. There was one washer ($1.25) and one dryer ($1.00). The one bathroom and shower was located within the laundry room. The campground did not have Wi-Fi or cable. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. The seasonal residents and campground host were extremely friendly. It was very quiet at night. The road from I-35 to the campground (Commonwealth Road) is extremely pot-holed. There are few amenities on Commonwealth Road. Follow the signs to Boy Scout Landing station, and then turn left from the boat launch area to the campground. We would return to this campground if we were in the area. Our rig is 32' long. - adsaxs

What this c/g lacks in amenities, it makes up for in hospitality. We were the only transients there and were made to feel like family. The site was large, but only had 30amps. There is a boat launch and a small laundry - one machine each. Coffee and baked goods every morning. Good fishing. - dotr

Made reservation for full hook-ups and was told on arrival only water/electric sites were available. Stayed 3 nights and camped with friends in adjoining grass pull thru sights that were far from level but well shaded. Convenient toilet facilities were porta-potties. Restaurant and C&W bar on site with softball and horseshoe facilities. Quiet but relatively tight sites.Even though there were not any full hookups available the camp host did offer honey bucket service at the campsites. - Fred 52

Un-remarkable. Mostly permanent residents. Just fine for an overnighter and not a vacation stop. - socaljj

I guess there are no previous remarks because this place is so unremarkable. Sites are gravel on mud (with leaky taps) in a field behind a CW bar. Don't pay for the sewer connection unless your pipe is at the extreme aft end of your rig: with my mid-mounted pipe I had to use the dump station, which is slanted the wrong way. The new restrooms are huge, modern and spotless. Overall an OK place for a night. - ebdavis

State parks require annual permit or day pass. Rustic camping with some "modern" pit toilets. Central water faucets around the park. No electric, no water at camp sites, no dump station or sewer available. This park is absolutely gorgeous with rapids, water falls, flowing over ancient granite rock ridges. Play in the water or fish in the river, hike the marked trails with points of interest. Mostly private campsites with trees and bush between sites. Love this park and connecting with nature here. It is a "mystic" place to be one with nature. Camped here many times. Always a rejuvinating experience.
Our travel trailer is 24 foot long and that is about the max length for most of the sites. There are a couple of sites that have a longer angled back in that could hold a bigger rig. But many sites are only big enough for your vehicle and a tent or pop up camper.
The day use area is busy on nice weekends because you can wade in the river and climb the water falls and rapids. Take your time to explore the trails and follow the river up and down both sides. Many hidden spots that are treasures of nature. - Macmasterson

We visited this park on Sunday through Thursday. It was completely full almost every night. Reservations are strongly recommended even for non-electric and hike-in sites. The park office is fairly new and staff is knowledgeable and helpful.
There were programs to attend at the River Inn interpretive center during the week. We enjoyed hiking along the river, at the Thomson Dam and Oldenburg Point overlook. There are wonderful biking paths too. The swinging bridge and massive rock formations are the main attraction at this park.
The bathrooms are in horrible condition due to age. The seats are loose and sliding around. Also, you can't get out of the stall without brushing up against the toilet because the door opening is too close. The bathrooms are cleaned often, but they still smelled. They have clearly seen better days. The showers were a little better, however hot water was scarce. We had very cool water until someone flushed and then we would get warm water.
Sites here seem to be better suited for pop-ups and tents. They are a bit short for those with big rigs. We camped in a 25 foot travel trailer and had to park our vehicle sideways. Phone service is spotty, but WiFi is available near the office. We were able to use WiFi in the parking lot and benches around the office. Bathrooms aside, this is a great park for camping and recreation. - brendajoro

We had a wonderful time at Jay Cooke State Park. The weather couldn't have been better and the bugs were at a minimum. This year the park is celebrating it's 100-year anniversary, so fun things are planned throughout the year. The swinging bridge, rock formation, woods and hiking are always great at this park. I emailed the park directly because there is an issue with opening the pictures of the sites. I ended up with a completely sunny site next to the bathroom (#48 ). Also, the bathrooms are very old and outdated. They were kept clean, however, there is not a stall for a disabled person to fit in a wheelchair, only railings. We were close to the new office, so we ended up going across the road to use the new facilities. Much to my surprise, the new Park manager emailed me back promptly to let me know the bathrooms are at the top of their list for repair or upgrade. She also said they will look into making site 48 a non-reservable site because it's so small and open. Actually, the first 3 sites used to get a lot of road noise, but since hwy. 23 is closed 1.5 miles down the road they are just wonderful. We stayed in a popup. - brendajoro

Jay Cooke is very wooded. This location is pretty far from other activities, but it is pretty in a deep woods kind of way. We liked the hiking trails and swinging bridge. There are campgrounds closer to Duluth and Lake Superior if you are going up there for an event. Nice place. - carlie dalton
