10 RV Parks near Bruce Crossing, Michigan
Aug 2018 - $15.00
We stayed at this campground the night of August 23, 2018. A paper on the board in the campground states "water is unsafe to drink at present time." There is nothing about the water on the entrance sign to the park. This is a very convenient park for anyone traveling east/west on Michigan 28. It's just a few hundreds yards off M-28. First come, first serve campground. There is a pay station, which has envelopes and a drop box. Easy in/out for big rigs. There were 4 other RVs in the campground the night we stayed. The entrance road is paved, but the campground interior roads are gravel. Sites are on grass/gravel. We had no problem leveling. I believe there are now at least 12 sites. The first two electrical boxes do not have numbers on them. Two sites share the same pedestal, one on each side. Each site is designed to accommodate two RVs (pull in in opposite directions). All sites are pull-through. There are grills and tables. Dump station on site. We didn't check out the showers/restrooms. Sites are long and relatively level. (We are a 40' motorhome, towing a Saturn Vue, and we did not unhook the car.) There isn't a dedicated pet area, but there's plenty of space to walk pets. Verizon data and cell worked well. There were no OTA channels. There is a children's play area. We would stay again if passing through the area. - Guinness

Basic but very quaint township operated CG. Called to book site but it's "first come, first serve". They said it wasn't busy and they were right - we were the only campers. Easily accessible CG from highway and good road into CG. Hook ups easy to access. Bathroom/shower house were combined with only one toilet so if someone is showering, it could be a long wait. There were outhouses available. The bathroom/showers were clean with good water pressure. No amenities at CG but within very short walking distance to grocery store and 2 or 3 bars/restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. - Bunners

This campground is just fine if you are self contained and can live without good TV. Actually we found PBS stations. Our Verizon phone and broadband worked fine here. We stayed in site East 13 which is right on the lake. The dirt trail entrance is fine and just past the camping site is a look to turn the rig around. Quiet. Grass, some trees fairly level. Hand water pump available next to site. There is a west area campground that we did not visit, but on the site map, the area looks good with a few pull throughs. Check out the website maps before visiting. And there really was no camping charge, I put in $1 to get the page to work. It did cost $8 to visit Bond Falls, which are beautiful. - rncordy

This park is run under by Upper Peninsula Power Company. It is one mile east of US-45 in Paulding. The park has rustic camping with spots scattered all along the north shore of the flowage. There is a office to check in by the entrance. - Yooperboy

Pleasantly surprised by this park. Sites are grass with a firepit and picnic table--sites come in a variety of sizes. Many of the lakeside lots slope significantly toward the water. Sites further back are more level. Nearly every site has a view of the lake. Many people park rig crosswise on lot to maximize the view and minimize slope. There are a number of lots that would accommodate rigs up to 40' and no problem navigating through park. Roads are paved and smooth. The two bathhouses are older but in good repair and kept clean. We camped during the middle of the week and was at 25% capacity--quiet and peaceful. Good Verizon reception. No over-the-air TV, but we did score limited Dish reception on Site 86 (possibly one of the few lots where reception would be possible). Lake Gogebic is the largest inland lake in Michigan's Upper Peninsula--12 miles long and 2-3 miles across. Great lake for kayaking, fishing, or water skiing. Many campers also have boats with them. Nearest grocery is 10 miles away. There are a couple of restaurants within 2 miles of campground. - RagTopDay

Price above does not include park pass which is extra. Park has spacious spots and a number of them are lakefront. Park was quiet though we were there in the off season. Nice little beach and boat ramp. Beautiful area and the lake is gorgeous. There are walking trails though they need some attention. Turned around when a boardwalk installed over a wet area was found to have broken, rotted boards. - carol5249

Got one of the 3 pull throughs. Need a long electric cord 50'. No water hook up. Very nice and clean. Right next to lake. We did not have reservations and got there at 4 on a Saturday while the office was still open. This is Michigan, so if you are out of state they charge you a $9/day fee. Or you can buy a season pass for $31. Pays for itself if you stay more than 3 nights. Also if you have a motorhome, Michigan charges you for you toad.
Overall a very nice park. Nice beach. Level sites. But sites not paved Some have gravel. - Magnum34

My family and I spent a weekend here just for fun. It wasn't much fun. The rules are strict and the host had problems. You get all sun all day and the beach is only one foot wide. The only good thing was the long fishing dock. Do not come here!!! - Yooperboy

Out of the many rustic national and state forest campgrounds I have visited over the years, this is one of the best. Sites come in a variety of sizes suitable for everything from the smallest tent to the largest fifth-wheel, though options for the latter are limited. Most sites are wooded and have excellent screening and distance from neighbors. Half to two-thirds of sites are located along the lake with either direct access to the water or access down a short trail and/or staircase. Other sites are located on the inland side of the access roads. Several outhouses are scattered throughout the campground. There are also pressurized water spigots, but the spigots do not have threaded ends to attach a hose.
Along with a variety of fish (smallmouth bass were all I encountered, but without much effort put in) and a couple of loons, the lake itself is host to a small number of homes/camps, but at the end of September and beginning of October, the atmosphere was as peaceful as good be. Night was nearly completely silent other than the loons and owls all around.
Staying here was a pleasure and I most certainly will be back, probably late in another season when occupants are few and solitude is golden. - UPJerry

This campground is part of the Ottawa National Forest. Our site must have been 100' deep as well as wide and was a pull through. The sites are so large and wooded that we couldn't even see the campsites next to us. Almost all the sites are on the lake. Depending on your elevation you either had a path going to the water, or for the higher sites individual staircases down to the lake. Some of the waterfronts are sandy and others are more rocky. All sites had fire rings and poles (not high enough for bear poles but we used for garbage anyway, and for hanging our lantern at night). Primitive campground, only pit toilets, water pumps and no showers. They have a large group camp area, a beach and a park. No reservations, first come first serve. While the sites are big enough for even the biggest rigs, we did have a lot of branches to contend with on the campground loop. - User100

This is a nice parks with lots of trees and grass. Lots of seasonal campers permanently here for the summer, but still about 10 sites available. Electric only -shared by 2 sites, no water, no dump station. $15 for non county residents. The sites are VERY wide and since you share a hookup the stretch is very long. You have 40-50 feet between some sites. There is a lake and boat access. Very nice, we would come back. The state park is just down the road so maybe that's where you use the dump? Outhouses scattered around the park for use. - catrst

We stayed there for 5 nights. The grounds were spacious and well kept.
The bathrooms were dirty. Floors had not been cleaned in a long time and were not cleaned while we were there. Showers also not cleaned. I would not stay there again. - arkansas_jeannie

These folk were vague on the phone and pleasant but vague in person. The very minimum was done to maintain the park. Lawn was mowed, but areas around posts and rocks hadn't been trimmed all season. Downed branches from storms past were cleaned up, and piled in the middle of the tenting area, which now had a few seasons of weeds growing around them, and there were assorted abandoned vehicles and machinery at the far edges of the park. Some of the sites were too narrow for slide outs, although very long. It was hit or miss, basically, but park was not full, so there was choice. Electricity and water were fine. One permanent trailer was a bit sketchy looking. So basically, it was fine for a few days, but glad we were not staying longer. - Sheryl E

Nice, basic campground. Sites are grass, moderately level; plenty long for 40' coach and tow. But the fire ring and picnic table are at end of site (not enough room next to RV). Price a bit high for no amenities. - Liv2RV

Overnighted Sept 24, a Monday, so there were many vacant sites to choose from. We were on a sandy site facing Lake Superior just 3 sites west of the little office. Adequate site width. The water faucet was a shared one a distance away, the electric post right there. The narrow sandy beach had lots of logs washed up, one a beautiful cedar stripped of bark. The bath house was clean but showers 75 cents for 6 minutes. The camp road was paved. Sites varied for levelness. Scattered areas of trees. The campground attendant friendly helpful and very talkative. A nice stay. - 210jem

If you want a slot at this non-reservation park you will need to call right at 8 AM EST in order to get the staff to place a cone at an available slot. At least you know will have a place to stay that night. Though not of your choice. They are very crowded in the summer and getting a slot is a good thing. The "on water" sites are limited to nine or 16 days but the "off water" are unlimited stay after you have arrived. Plus they will allow you to upgrade to on water after you are in a slot; first come first serve. Locals take up many of the slots. Showers are great but they cost $.75 for six minutes. Great staff, clean park, and super location. Depending on what you are wanting, be aware that the on water sites are right on the beach and the wave action can be noisy. The off water sites are far enough back to muffle the sound somewhat. OTA TV seems to be non existent (even though some people put their antennae's up) and satellite is very dependent on tree coverage. Very few sites have clear view of the southern sky. Good Wifi at office but ATT hotspot at site. - durham4926

What is not to love about a lake shore site with 30 amp and water. No reservations, but called ahead and after a few friendly phone calls a lake site was available when we arrived. Clean restroom, pay showers, friendly people. - USA16RVer
