Awesome place to check out when on the Northern Peninsula. Camp sites were well maintained and park staff were friendly and accommodating. Showers are a bit rough but still a great place to check out.

Stayed two nights and had only booked one night. Found the staff at the front gate top notch and helpful. Stayed in site 21, open, airy, and a nice meadow behind the site to watch for moose. Found the campground location ideal after coming off...More
