The Keweenaw is one of the top 3 most beautiful places in the Midwest. The campgrounds at the park, although adequate, pack as many sites together as possible. Unfortunately, in order to save money, the designers decided a single electrical box could service 4 adjacent campsites. It can, but it leaves two of them on the wrong side of the camping units and unless you have a 50 foot electrical cable, you can’t reach the box without a great deal of difficulty. But there are clean restrooms and nice showers in East campground.

Nice Location But Very Crowded
Sites were very close together. Hookup for electric was very far away. Bring an extension cord! We borrowed one from the office. Great location. Was easy to bike to town. Windy in the morning. Dump station is available. Only one dump station for this large park so we had to wait in line. Water is available. Showers were warm but water pressure varies a lot. I believe we paid $25 for electric only site. Most sites were not very level. We were in the East loop as the West was full. East was almost completely full. Town was busy this weekend so we only stayed one night.

Great Place
We came from Florida to see the fall tree colors. Were not disappointed! Lots of bike trails, hiking trails, kayaking, fishing. Right next to old restored Ft Wilkins which was very interesting to explore. We stayed in the west campground and, for our type of camping, liked it better than the east. East has a better playground and larger bathrooms/showers, but our children have left the nest and we use our own rig's facilities. Getting into the sites can be challenging, even though they are quite wide. They are perpendicular to the road, which is narrow, one lane. Other campers usually parallel park next to the road, so backing in can be tough. Park rangers/camp host need to be more proactive in policing numbers of vehicles in a site (supposed to be only 2 per site, across from us had 4). Being a state park, you are required to display a Michigan state passport on each vehicle - across from us only 1 had the pass. We would stay again.

Lots of water fun here! Right between clean and private Fanny Hooe and Superior! Sites were level, grassy - not very private at all. Facilities seemed clean from what we saw, but we didn’t use them.

West is Best
Definitely more space at the West campground, especially in the midst of a pandemic, the added tree foliage divide was appreciated. The only downfall was the slope of the lot. Was hard to balance the camper for a level sleep. In all fairness, this was disclosed by the park prior to the reservation. Amazing walk-thru of the grounds of Fort Wilkins. We decided not to go into the old fort buildings since many folks didn’t wear masks. Spent time privately walking to Lake Superior and spending our time on the shore which allowed for privacy and social distancing. Though Lake Fanny Hooe is a very calm lake perfect for kayaking/canoeing!

We stayed in site 1 if the eastern side of the park. The sites were mostly level and tidy. The restroom and shower house was very clean even though the facilities were built some time ago. The east campground facilities were considerably cleaner and better maintained than the west campground. The east campground had much less foliage between the sites than the west, but they still felt private and comfortable. The dump station was located at the west campground and it was very clean and well laid out. Even though we were located facing Lake Fannie Hooe, we could hear the waves hitting the rocks along the shore of Lake Superior. We will certainly stay here again, and I recommend the east campground over the west.

Circle Tour Stopover
Love this State Park. Been here three times. You can walk to Copper Harbor. I am partial to the West campground as it is closer to the Harbor and is big rig friendly.

The west campground is quieter but the bathrooms are super clean and have large private showers. Wifi is not strong and you'll have no signal in the area. Almost all have electric hookups, affordable for the night. Cool fort near campground with civil war reenactments , great fishing on lake fanny hooe or Superior, lighthouses etc. I'd stay here again for sure!

Awesome Campground
This place was wonderful, very quiet, and very clean bath houses. You will not get cell service but the bath house has wifi just not pointed towards where we stayed. Also be prepared that if you are coming to copper harbor they do not have gas! Closest gas station is at least 30 minutes away. Other then that it's perfect!
