This is one of our favorite campgrounds in the Upper Peninsula. We have stayed here dozens of times and love it everytime. We normally canoe the Two Hearted River where you're sure to see Bald Eagles, Salmon running upstream if it's late fall and some of the best star gazing around.
You have to travel down miles of dirt roads to get to this area, and if you're into trail riding on motorcycles or fourwheelers, this is a great spot to use as base camp. They also have a boat launch to load your boat into Lake Superior. There is a cool suspension bridge to go from the campground over to the beach, and the local outfitter can shuttle you right from the campground up river. Canoeing back down, you'll end up right at your campsite!
If in the UP, this is a must see.
