  • We stayed three nights at the lower campground with spectacular views of Lake Superior and close access to walk the rocky beach. Across 61 there was a fantastic short hike to the Hidden Falls and upper falls of Temperance River. Completely worth the stop even if you're just passing through. Be cautious going through the pull off on 61 especially on the weekend though, as it is well trafficked and lots of moving vehicles and people.
  • We stayed during the week for a few days in August. It is a nice campground with cozy campsites and a good fire ring. It's a little close to the highway but it quieted down after dark. They have very few electric sights so don't forget your generators. Not positive if they can be used here. Great campground for tents. Nice hiking and biking trails. Would recommend while you're traveling up the North Shore.
