Not the fanciest place but we spent two enjoyable nights. The office, a long-ago converted milk barn, is messy - "antiques and junk," the owner told me. She has owned the park for 29 years. Opened it with her father who died six years ago. It's cash only, no credit cards. Some sites are very crowded, others not so bad. Mine was perfectly level. WiFi barely works and Verizon data varies from one to two bars. Overall, this is a good place close to the Superior/Duluth area. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is the start of scenic state route 13 along Lake Superior.

This campground is run down but the sites are level and have full hookups. Given the poor availability of good facilities in the Duluth/Superior area this park is a reasonable compromise for the price. Big rigs can easily use this park. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Quiet park, convenient, spaces a little close and internet was not great. Had problem with electrical service and service man had it repaired very quickly. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
North shore drive in Duluth, Enger Tower, and Wisconsin Point all good and close places to visit. Apostle Island tour was a little further but worth the drive.
Cash or check only and no receipt. One side of the campground entrance sign is spelled correctly, the other side is "Entrance - Offcie". The office is also a bar with Bud Lite on tap, but is not a camp store. Inside the office you are greeted with a large welcome mat that says "Holiday Inn Express". The men and ladies bathroom offer no soap or paper towels to dry hands and the facility is run down. Very nice folks and you can see the efforts they make, but the decline is winning. They let you pick your own site from a hand-drawn campground map. The whole interaction was very laid back and 1960-ish. Our site's dump cap was glued on so we had to pull to another site to dump. Very overpriced if you don't use the pool, sauna or hot tub. Pretty setting. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Close to Lake Superior seashore and Whittelsey National Wildlife Refuge.
It's right off Hwy 33. Convenient to Duluth/Superior. We thought they were remodeling...because the whole campground needs upgrading...but they were just opening for the season. Everything is old and dingy, but the sites were adequate and have full service. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Definitely does NOT deserve the positive review in the Good Sam book. I would not stay here again. This place has potential and was probably nice when first opened. But it is totally run down now. Entering the campground office, I thought the owner was having a garage sale. Instead, it was all the stuff from her house being stored while some renovating was being done. The pool area was messy. The hot tub was hot, but the jets don't work. The Wi-Fi was good. Over the air TV reception was good. Verizon phone coverage was good. Payment is by cash or check only. But the place is just run down. Next time I would camp right in Duluth at a marina right on the harbor. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice owner, park was well organized and clean. Over the air TV available, Wi-Fi worked well as did the hookups. Easy access to US-2. We would return in the future if in the area. We did not use the pool or hot tub but it looked welcoming and clean. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Motorhome.
Cash or check only. Staff very helpful with maps and suggestions for the area. Quite convenient to Duluth/Superior area. Very adequate facilities. Comfortable roads for a large motorhome. Pool looked inviting even if we didn't use it. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Motorhome.
Shore services 50/30 amp, Sewer good, Water @ 45 psi, Wi-Fi is weak at the sites, but strong in the office, AT&T Cell Phone is good with 3 bars, Both 3G Sprint Air Card -83 dBm, Verizon Air Card -90 dBm have poor signals. No Cable service. Site is crushed stone and is soft. The site is long enough and just bearly wide enough for our trailer to fit. Our tires sunk deep in the ground on the sides as we backed into the site. Site closeness is good. Enough room to put out the awning without being close to the neighbor. Roads are gravel and good enough to allow getting into the site. Directv Satellite was easy to access. No Discounts. Payment is by cash or check. The owner is very nice and friendly. She gave us a lot of information about the area and told us some great sites to see and photograph. We stayed an extra 2 days to take in the local attractions. We would stay here again, if in the area. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
The TV reception was good, but the WiFi was not worth bothering with. The office and grounds need work. The location is good for visiting the Port of Duluth/Superior, which has lots of restaurants, shops, pretty landscaping and fountains. The William Irvin Ship Tour is good. The only other campground which is a bit closer is really run down. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The good - The hosts of this campground were awesome. We arrived in one of the heaviest rain falls of the year. Everything was flooded. Even though we arrived late, the host stayed up for us and guided us to a level solid spot for the night. She then recommended we move to the concrete pad area the next morning when the sun came out because more rain was expected. Awesome advice because for the next 3 days the skies opened up. Electricity was stable and water and sewer were very conveniently located. The laundry facility was clean and very usable. I was able to connect reliability to internet using a Wilson booster with high gain antenna via my Verizon hot spot. We were definitely there off season, so the bathrooms and shower being unheated, were mostly unusable. Campground provided internet was spotty at best.

$32/night cash or check only. Roads and sites were gravel and mostly level – no problem with full hook-up and most are pull through sites with tables and fire rings. Data card and antenna TV worked well. Bathhouse was old could use some work – no soap or anything to dry your hands with – showers were hot but the blowing curtain can be cold. The owners were very nice with maps and info on the Duluth and Superior areas. Easy on and off Hwy 2/53. Pool and hot tub looked okay, but closed after the holiday. We would stay here again.

We also stayed here last August for one night. See my 8/11 review. I could almost say "ditto" that review for this one. We had a FHU, pull-through site with good, at sight, Wi-Fi. There is no cable, there are antenna stations and most sites are satellite friendly. The laundry still has old, but working machines and the room could use a good cleaning. Same with the bathroom: it is hard to make old cement floors look clean. The pool was refreshing on an upper 80's afternoon. This is a good, but not great park. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a week. Sites are gravel and level. Owner was pleasant and helpful telling us about the area. The park location is ideal to see sites both in Superior as well as Northern MN. The laundry could use some TLC. The machines worked fine even though they looked beat up. If we ever came back through this area we would stay here again.

Very friendly owner/manager. Good gravel/dirt interior roads and sites all seem fairly level. I saw other reviews and they stated they paid a lesser amount than what I was charged. When checking in, I was told $31 per night and no discounts. The laundry room was dirty and the washer very old, but it worked OK. My wife found a pile of dog crap right outside the laundry room door left from an inconsiderate campers's dog. We don't have a dog so she did not pick it up. There is plenty of fire wood for campfire and Sat TV was easy to get a signal. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Motorhome.
