Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park / Union Bay Campground, Ontonagon, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed on site 11 which was on the rocky shore of Lake Superior and had vegetation separating the campsite from lake with a little trail to the water. The rock is big flat sheets you can walk and lay on but it can be sharp and slippery. It was beautiful to sit on them and watch the sunrise. Campground was packed every night of the week but never was loud. Campsites were all decent, small and no privacy, though, but still loved it! Bring long extension cords cause the electric boxes are oddly placed. No sewer hook up at the campsites but they have water fill and dump at the park entrance. We have a 21 ft hybrid camper that fit nice on site 11. They had the bathroom and shower buildings tore down when we were there but they had those rentable RV type bathrooms set up which I was told were nice. We used our camper plumbing sparingly to last 5 days. Lake Superior is amazing--crystal clear, and it was a surprisingly comfortable temp for swimming. Our favorite activity was the beach! The stars were unbelievable. Skies so clear! I loved being next to the shore and hearing the waves as we fell asleep. The flies were horrible at times, though. Definitely didn't want to sit at the campsite during the day or we would get attacked. At night and in the morning we had no bug problems. Pack fly swatters, and a screen tent is almost a must.

The Porkies are a beautiful place anyone that appreciates nature must see. We camped at Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park / Union Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't eat at the hotel down the road..overpriced and not good. A guy had a broasted chicken trailer set up on the main drag that was really good, otherwise drive into Ontanagon to Syls Cafe or Roxies bar for good and cheap food.

If you have time go to Quincy mine in Houghton.

Governor Dodge State Park, Dodgeville, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

My very favorite park! this park has something for everyone and in a beautiful part of WI. Pet beaches are great for dogs. 2 lakes are spectacular for swimming and relaxing. Waterfall is very cool and easy to walk to. We stayed in Cox Hollow loop site 30 and it is great. Really nice playground and shower/bathrooms right there. Private sites are great. All of the sites in the outer loop of Cox Hollow were spacious and beautiful but no electric there which is fine for us tent campers. We camped at Governor Dodge State Park in a Tent.

Buckhorn State Park, Necedah, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here in June of 08'...Park was INFESTED with ticks! We set up our tent and equipment and then took it all down and left in 4 hours. If you stood still you would have ticks crawling all over you. My poor dog had over 20 ticks we had to remove off him. The site was on the shore which would have been cool if you could enjoy it. Mosquito's were bad too but the ticks were unbelievable. We camped at Buckhorn State Park in a Tent.

Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA, Sugarloaf Key, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2009 - $99.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed Jan. 09' in a tent on the shore. We must have been one of the only tents packed in like sardines between GIANT motorhomes. The sites weren't anything special...no shade, no privacy, but the amenities of a KOA are sweet! pool was great, tiki bar was relaxing and refreshing. prices were high but so is everywhere in the Keys. There is a beach, but don't plan on swimming there. It's rocky and mucky. No see-ums were bad. Was bitten up pretty bad by the time we left. As far as the Keys though...I HAVE THE KEYSDISEASE! luv the keys. Drove down in convertible from mainland. I'd go back to the keys in a heartbeat. We camped at Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA in a Tent.
