  • Beautiful winter wonderland! Few landscapes as majestic as ice sculptures on the beach of Lake Superior.  more »
  • This was a wonderful, clean , beautifully maintained state park! Not only is Lake Muskallonge gorgeous but your a short walk to Lake Superior & a rock hounds paradise! I highly recommend you visit...  more »
  • We had a site by the boat launch and it was super nice. Feels very private with great access to both lakes. Only downside was access to the bathroom and showers is a bit out of the way due to the layout of the sections. The boat launch had a vault toilet though, which was very well maintained so we opted to use that instead. Were only there one night but I could certainly see myself returning
  • We stayed 4 nights. Campsites are narrow, so be friendly! No limit to the number of tents on a lot, and we saw a lot of college students crammed onto lots here and there. (They were well behaved!) Lots of barking dogs! It would be nice if parks would limit dogs to 1 per campsite. Lots of people were walking 3 at a time, all of them barking at once. Goose poop everywhere! (Wear old shoes!) No Wifi unless you walk down to the ranger station. It would be very nice if the staff would install a few park benches down there! Overall, it's a nice campground. Beautiful scenery, more stars in the sky than you've ever seen, clean restrooms and showers, and a friendly staff. Lots to see within an hours drive. Give it a try!
