Beautiful park and historic village. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the village and reading the history of it. Campground was quaint, with friendly staff and clean facilities.

This place IS Pet friendly, which is an extra star from us, BUT the dogs are not allowed inside any of the buildings, which is to be expected. We have been here so many times, and no matter how many times we visit, we seem to find new things to enjoy each time we come. It's so amazing to walk around and learn about the history of the area, and the buildings and what they were. There are times during the year where people dress in period costumes as well! Such a cool place!
Beautiful grounds, with Lake Superior as the backdrop. Newly preserved buildings, and well manicured grounds make thus a step back in time that is enjoyable and educational. Nice gift shop with clean restrooms, and dogs allowed but not in buildings. (Annoying that dog owners do not always adhere to this). A great and beautiful experience!
