What a great place to camp and relax. The beach is beautiful and well taken care of. Staff at the park are friendly. It's well kept. Sites are a good size. Love the beach the best. more »

You'll think you are at an ocean instead of a big lake — and the star views are magnificent! Tip: book a campsite along the front row for best beach access and to avoid road noise. We liked our #236: large & quiet, with the beach right across the paved narrow road inaccessible to big rigs. Some in the 300s and 400s are right on the beach.
This is a large area with a beautiful beach on Lake Superior and many camp sites and yurts available. There are barrier free campsites, facilities and beach access. Everyone who visits this park needs to a fee. A day pass is $11.25 per day.
A gem of a beach just off Highway 17. The water is crystal clear, although a wee bit cold, it's a great way to cool off on a hot summer day. The views are amazing!
Very nice overall! The beach was wonderful, and the camp site was great. Bathrooms could be a bit... Nicer.
Beautiful park; the stars at night are gorgeous and very visible; you can see the milky way clearly. Lake superior is cold, but the beach is lovely. Campground staff was friendly and accommodating, allowing us to camp even after arriving at 11pm.
