9 RV Parks near Hancock, Michigan
Aug 2018 - $22.00
Typical Michigan State Park set-up. Most of the park is quite wooded, but big rig can navigate. New bathhouse in park near the ranger station is very nice and well maintained. Showers are individual and located at end of bathhouse. However, bathhouse was a full half-mile from our campsite - bring your bicycle! There are several vault toilets located through the campground. Some of the park and the old bathhouse have been lost to beach erosion. Campsites nearest ranger station are grass, level, with fewer trees - most are fairly close together and some are quite short. Sites 39-85 are paved, longer, and further apart - most will accommodate rigs up to 40'. We backed our 38' motorhome in with problem. Some truck/trailers were a tight fit, but all managed with patience. All sites all slope slightly away from the road, but we were able to get level without using blocks. Electric hookup was back-to-back and required 75' of cord, which we did not have. Luckily we were able to borrow an 50' extension cord from the ranger station. A new loop (sites 100-120) is being completed with 20 large sites, 4 pull-throughs 100' long, and 16 back-ins 60'. These all have convenient 50 and 30 amp service at each site. Looking forward to returning and staying in this new loop. No WiFi, and no Verizon coverage until very close to Hancock or Calumet. We did score Dish reception on Site #67 - must have found a lucky gap through the trees. Nice gift shop with ice cream at the public beach area of park. About a 10 mile drive into Hancock/Houghton, but very pretty ride along the Canal. Sunsets over Lake Superior are amazing! Bring your extension cord--hook ups are back to back and some sites are a distance apart. Ranger Station does have a few cords to borrow. - RagTopDay

Loved this park on Lake Superior! Our site was not lakeside but a short walk brought us to the beach. There are multiple twin set seats so you can sit and just watch the lake or the sunset. We saw some sites right on the lake but they aren't reservable online. Call? Walk up? Be sure to have plenty of extension cords for the power. We had 50' of cord and JUST barely were able to connect. - MsLucy

One of my favorite campsites with great views of Lake Superior and sunsets. Spacious sites. Staff was very helpful and gave us extension cord as electrical
Boxes far away. Walk down to see lighthouse , easy drive to copper mines and around beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula. - IowaGirl

Small park, some sites W/E, some 30A, some 50A, few with water. No FHU, good dump station. On a hill, leveling on some sites could be a challenge. Very nice staff. Good base to tour the area - approx. 1 hour north to Copper Harbor. No OTA signal. WiFi at our site, not sure if the sites by the water would have it. Sites near water could accommodate larger rigs - we had a back-in (#8) that was fine for our 26' and toad. - Loggenrock

Great stay at this CLEAN park. Restrooms recently painted, always clean. Park is clean with workers clearing brush etc. Lake sites look nice, but sites 6,7,8& 9 are pretty good, quiet RV sites. Some levelling required, but doable. - USA16RVer

This is a wonderful little RV Park right on the Portage waterway. All of the sites have views of the waterway. Unfortunately, all of the sites are back ins. You can pull in and connect to water, electric and sewer if you have extended cables and hoses. The town is an easy bike ride along the waterway. Houghton is the home of Michigan Technical University. We were quite impressed. The Campground hosts/managers are extremely friendly and helpful. They are natives of Houghton. - RPFawcett

Full hook ups on the river. Nice site. Restrooms are shared with nearby park. Not the best set up. No showers. No dogs allowed in the park nearby, kind of inconvenient. Tight getting into and out of the spot with my motorhome, but doable. - donpeterson

What a pleasant surprise. Not like any City park we've ever been to. The entrance is off the highway and just down a hill. Small sign so be on the lookout. You cross a narrow bridge and past some playground tube slides to get to the RV park. There is ample room to park your RV and register. The roads are paved and a bit narow but really no problem. The host is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The RV park sits right on the portage canal with views of Hancock across the water and the lift bridge. Some sites are more level than others, and the upper row appears to have more satellite reception challenges. All sites are asphalt, with grass and a covered deck in the rear with picnic table and bench. Each site has a big fire pit. Some of the sites in the upper row, 1-12, have more landscaping separation. All sites are back in. The sites are carved out on the front end to park your toad. Our site was level and right on the water. The utilities and cable were good. Strong cell signal. WiFi was mostly good to very good. There are toilets you can use at the recreation park a short walk away. The City park stretches along the canal past the lift bridge and makes for a very nice walk, about a mile and a half round trip. You can wash your car for $5 and your RV for $10. - VegasVagabonds

Really like this park great view of Torch Lake great price. The grounds keeper Joe was a very helpful person. Before you get here make sure the City guy put you down even if you have a reservation. We had one two weeks in advance he had us scheduled in site 16 where a full time person was parked at. This might not happen to you but make sure. - JustDon

This park was a life saver over Labor Day weekend. All the state and city parks were jammed, so we came here based on a local's recommendation. It was a fine choice and a good value with electric and water for $20. Some pull-through sites, mostly level and gravel paved. You'll want one of those, as our back-in was a bit sandy and turned to mud after a thunderstorm. Restrooms are small, but clean with a good shower. It makes a good base camp for exploring the Keweenaw peninsula. No TV, cable or WI-Fi, but a strong 3-G signal on AT&T. The town of Lake Linden is cute. There was a farmer's market on Saturday. Be sure to check out Lindell's Chocolate Shoppe for a trip back in time and some good ice cream. - catsinacan23FB

Nightly rate is weekly. We almost never stay at a place for more than a night or two without sewer, but we needed to spend 9 nights here. The bathrooms were small - only 1 shower stall in each men/women and cleaned once a day - at 6:30am. However, they were always clean and only had to wait on someone one time because most of the campers are locals and go home to shower. Nice campground on Portage Lake with a beach, playground, disc golf course and 2.5-3 mile gravel walking trail. Fairly level pull through sites and larger, fairly level back in sites - each one has a picnic table. It gets noisy on weekends due to the locals but is very quiet on weekdays. Walking/Biking distance to anything in town. They are hoping to add wifi in the next couple of years. If they added Wi-Fi and sewer, this park would be rated a 10. - hahnderosa

We camped here with a 30ft Travel trailer and had Site 15 with a full hookup. However to use the hookup we would have to drive in, and then wouldn't be able to get our truck out unless we drove through other campsites if available. The sewer connection is at the front of the site so when we backed in we had to put the extended 30 foot sewer hose underneath the trailer to reach the connection. The water and electric hookups are nearer the middle of the site edge. This is a backin site (no pull thru sites) and all hookups are on the wrong side for a backin site. The staff was very polite and very helpful.
The campground is situated right on the waterfront of Lake Superior and is a beautiful spot. The road into the campground is narrow and thank goodness we didn't meet anyone coming the other way. Sites backing to the lake have water only hookups. The wifi is very sporadic to say the best.
When will campgrounds learn that many of us want to be able to go online to look at places to visit in the area, book tours, or book or reconfirmed our next campground. Good reliable wifi should be a priority. - KiwiYankee

We stayed here in our 23' Class B MH - no slides or toad. When we pulled in, we thought we'd made a big mistake, because a long good gravel entrance road, then it was a bit dog eared - no attendant and we were greeted by a nice neighbor lady who pointed to the site we had been assigned via our telephone call. WE FELL IN LOVE WITH THE PLACE! My wife found a super lode of Lake Superior rocks (on nearby lake shore)and could have spent hours filtering the stones, but kept just a few. Rest rooms and showers were neat and clean, but a bit cold (unheated) in the 55 degree temp at night and morning. Laundromat had 2 driers and 3 washers $2 per load (honor system). If you ever wanted to "camp" in a motorhome, this is the place! A rugged, but superb setting!
The owner drove by in his dune buggy like vehicle - we flagged him and paid him and got great advice on where to go when we headed to Copper Harbor. Our site had water and electric (30 amp) - I believe all were 30 amp. Place is named after its sunset and it is beautiful! We would stay here again. - KAZIMIRA

The campground is about 8 miles from a small town with no services. You have to negotiate almost a mile of rough dirt road to get to the campground. Sites are very rough. No pads. Not even gravel. We were parked on grass. We were near the office and couldn't connect to the wifi. The lake is visible but only one site is actually on it. Road through the campground is dirt/gravel. Very narrow, be careful. There is an office with a number to call if you need something. Never saw anyone in the office. Restrooms rough. Only looked in after one had obviously been used. We were disappointed in the RV Campground given the reviews. Again, very rough and not well maintained. - chris4499

Last year's reviewer pretty much hit it on the head. When we arrived, our reserved spot was occupied, but the owner put us in another OK. It is an old campground, but clean and scenic. We did not use the bathroom/shower, but when I checked one, the floor was soaked from all of the showers. The owners grandson tore around on an ATV: annoying, but otherwise quiet and serene. Good location for touring local sights. - renodick

We stayed here for one night. Got a lakeside site with electric. It was wide, grassy, with table and fire ring. Lots of families and kids. Quiet at night. A bit of traffic noise. Would stay here again. - Wyboo

Very nice and clean. Nothing like the last review. The locals were friendly and helpful. There is a resort next door were the kids rented a row boat for only $20.00 for all day. I would come back. - jmc

This is a small section of the casino parking lot. There are paved sites with grass in between. They aren't anything special but they do the trick. The casino is open 24 hours that's where the bathrooms are. The hotel has a pool, Jacuzzi and sauna which are available to Campers as well. You can't beat the price for FHU. Ask for what you need, they are very accommodating. - Missrobbie

My wife and I weren't expecting much, and that's exactly what we got: A place to park with full hookups. The "campground" consists of a row of slots along one side of the casino's parking lot. The sites are paved, but the pavement in several of the sites nearest the highway is uneven and fairly steeply sloped. During our visit, a few days following heavy rains, our site and a couple of others were partially covered by mud. However, $15 for full hookups is hard to beat and we stopped here primarily to support the local economy by playing a little video poker. - Doctor Bob

Nothing special, but good price and easy place to stay. Close to other spots but not too close. Good for over night or a couple of days. If staying longer stay at the Tribes campground on the lake about 2 miles away. Same pricing but also found it muddy after recent rains. - Johnny xxxxx

Considering Michigan has a leash law it obviously is not enforced here. We are leaving today because there seems to be an incident daily because dogs are free to roam and harass other leashed dogs. We almost had a fight again as a dog rushed into our site and charged our dogs that were both leashed. Staff is completely unresponsive to complaints. I say that because they are pretty much non existent. Never will we stay here again!! It's really a shame because it is a beautiful place! - JohnJackie

This park is off the road with sites along Lake Superior. Very quiet. Sites are grass with a shared electrical outlet box at most sites (two campers plug into one outlet pole). There is sand-bottom swimming near the lighthouse. - Timeking

Excellent views of the bay at Sand Point just on the North side of Baraga, MI at the lighthouse. All sites have 30 amp service but no water or sewer hookups. Dump station is available. Sites along the waterfront are $20/night and the inland sites (still a lakeview but across the road) are $15. Everything is first come first served. All sites are grass with a fire pit and picnic table. Roughly 2/3 of the sites are waterfront. There are very few trees except for a small grove of pines near the center of the waterfront sites. All roads are smooth and paved.
This seems to be a local secret since the state park nearby was quite busy but this gem of campground was nearly empty. When you enter, turn towards the marina to pay the manager. There is a house and a garage with a drop box for the registration papers, otherwise the manager will come to your site for payment.
There is a boat ramp and excellent spots at the lakefront sites to launch a kayak. Fishing is excellent around the marina plus there is a small pond near the rear of the campground. There is free Wi-Fi all around the park. Wi-Fi antennas are visible at several points. We got 2 Mb download speed but very few other campers in the park.
The website is old and outdated. There are many pieces of information that are not accurate as of 2015. The website says rates are $8 per night but it's $20. There are discounts for tribal members. Weekly rates are $100 per week on the waterfront and $65 for inland. - Craig H
