Site was drive-through, fairly level, high on a treeless hill with a view of Lake Superior. Close to Canadian border. Grand Portage NP Visitor Center is nearby and worth a visit. High Falls also worth a visit. Canada goose poop everywhere. Campground overlooks a small marina. It is convenient to the casino. We ate at the casino restaurant twice. They have specials that we found worth the price. Also they have a nice beach on the lake with a large campfire ring. The nights we ate at the restaurant we walked out to the campfire and met other convivial guests also enjoying the ambiance. Casino supplied the firewood. Very nice. Restrooms were OK but not the cleanest or the newest. Clerk at the reception desk was informative and helpful. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 4 nights at the park. Our main purpose was to visit Isle Royale National Park. The park is in a very good location for visiting there and the state park, plus very close to the marina for the boat to Isle Royale. There was a Pow Wow going on the weekend we were there, so a lot of activity. We could easily walk to all the festivities. Our site was fairly level. We did get wifi reception and 1 radio station, but no TV channels at all. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Travel Trailer.

You are parking on a hillside (though all sites are level) in a field. There are no shade trees. The view is Lake Superior. I didn't visit the shop or the casino, but they are just a few steps away. There is no playground or place to swim at the park, but you are allowed to use the pool, etc. next door at the lodge/casino. It's basically a place to park your RV, see the lake, and have full hook-ups...oh, and visit the casino if you enjoy that. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Motorhome.

Located on an Indian Reservation about 6 miles from the Canadian border. The campground is down the road from the casino. It is on a hill above the marina overlooking Lake Superior. Request a site that overlooks the lake. No cable, about 6 OTA TV channels. Verizon cell service is marginal. Playground is basic. Marina is a stop for the charter boat to Isle Royale NP. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Be sure to see both sides of the Pigeon River Falls. The Canadian side will get you closer to the falls and has great hiking trails. The American side has easy access and great head on shot of the falls. Spectacular site.

This campground is a large, open, grassy field located above the harbor and near the casino and trading post. The sites are spacious and all have FHU. The bathrooms are clean and there is a very small laundry with one washer and dryer. We had no Verizon cell phone service and poor wifi. The trading post is a well stocked mini-mart and gas station with diesel, a credit union, and a post office. Good for an overnight. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Motorhome.

Park is on a hill overlooking a bay on Lake Superior. Very nice view from some sites ($40 with view, $35 without). No trees but mostly grass with gravel sites. Sites are adequate but nothing to write home about. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Kayaking was phenomenal, hiking had breathing views of waterfalls and flora. Biking is available all over the place but we lacked the time to partake. There is a casino nearby but we didn't go in so no idea how that is. A must do is to visit the Grand Portage Monument. Lots of history here and it is well presented. Grand Marais (pronounced Ma-ray) is 30 miles away and is a really neat little town with a nice coffee shop, shopping, and often has festivities planed.

This is an Tribal,owned and operated park adjacent to a casino, currently in the final remodeling stages of construction.
Our rate is based on a 1 week stay. The sites are all located on a gentle hillside overlooking Lake Superior. Sites are all large and spaced well apart. All utilities worked fine. No cable, they want you in the casino, not watching TV!
Grand Portage is simply the RV Park, a casino and a "Trading Post" which is excellent, having virtually anything you may need while traveling, from hardware to a small market with fresh foods to diesel and gas. (Best price around for sure) there is also a Post Office and Credit Union located in this store.
There is only 1 washer and 1 dryer available in the laundromat. About 1/2 of the park was filled with seasonal workers. (All very friendly) this is 6 miles from Canada, and 42 miles to Thunder Bay, Ontario, and 34 miles to Grand Marais, the next nearest grocery store. Boat trips to Isle Royale 2 miles away.
Not a lot to do here. If you like quiet times, it's here.Great views of the lake.
One downside... We were unable to sit outside during the evening hours because of all the mosquitos and biting horseflies. Mornings and coffee outside are great though! We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the day trip to Isle Royale National Park. $75.00 per person, takes 90 minutes on the boat each way and 4 hours on the island. Park Rangers there meet you and you can take free tours and presentations. Its well done. Make reservations. They only take about 40 passengers per day. We arrived on Monday, dropped in, and were lucky to get on a trip the following Saturday.

This campground is part of a tribal run casino/marina/campground complex. The casino is under renovation and about 1/4 of the campsites were taken up with piles of building materials. Those should be freed up when the construction is completed. The campground is small and a little weedy. However, we had an amazing view of Lake Superior from our window. Who sees weeds when you can look at that! The staff was super helpful. We called to make a reservation late in the game and they were full. However, they keep a few sites for walk-ins. So we got there early and got one of those sites. All good. There are a convenience store, car wash, gas station and post office as part of the complex. Wifi was terrible. We were told that we could use wifi in the casino hotel lobby, which ended up being 2 chairs and a broken desk next to a doorway. The campground staff were welcoming and helpful, the casino staff were rude and unhelpful. We turned off our Verizon phones, there was no reception. The campground is biking distance to the Grand Marais National Monument and the ferry (3 miles away) that takes you to Isle Royale National Park (Happy 100th Birthday NPS!). We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring your groceries with you, the closest grocery store is 30 miles away in Grand Marais.

The Grand Portage National Monument is a must-see. It celebrates the collaboration between the Indians and the Voyageurs during the fur trade. The Monument is unique in that it is jointly run by the local tribe and the National Park Service.

3 miles away is a 90 minute ferry takes you to the Windigo part of the Isle Royale National Park. You stay there for 4 hours. There are ranger led hikes and talks, or you can head out on your own.

We had a pull thru with views of the lake and open sky for dish. Utilities were fine, but cell phone and internet are non existent as you are very close to Canada and your phone will roam to the very expensive Canadian system-we just turned ours off. The park is on an indian reservation with casino, fuel and groceries available close by. While we were there, the casino was being upgraded, so some noise from that, but they will done soon. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

We took the boat to Isle Royale National Park for the day and it was well worth the cost. Grand Portage National Monument is very close by and we enjoyed the fort section, with rangers dressed in period clothing and very informative, also the falls north of Grand Portage were beautiful

The only campground convenient to the boat tour to Isle Royale. Only 4 pull-thrus. #7 and #9 both have outstanding views of the lake and have no one near them. Wifi erratic, no antenna-tv reception, only ATT&T works there. We were told if we had Verizon we'd probably connect with a Canadian tower and incur huge unexpected charges so we turned our phones off. Laundry has only one washer and dryer but they worked okay and were reasonable ($2.00 & $1.50). Manager works out of marina and wasn't there when he was supposed to be. Several people arriving Friday afternoon with reservations had no way of registering or finding out what sites they were in and no one knew where he was. They were extremely upset. Trading Post nearby has gas and minimal groceries but it beats driving 35 miles to Grand Marais. We enjoyed the solitude and beautiful view, but if you've seen Isle Royale and Grand Portage National Monument, there's no reason to go back. If we were going to do it again we'd stay in Grand Marais and drive up to Grand Portage to do those two parks in one day. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Very remote location on MN-61. Casino, Hotel, Trading Post with fuel. CG is mostly grass, some pull thru and some back-in, all have picnic tables and fire rings, SWE and Wi-Fi. No ctv and no hdtv reception. Some sites have excellent views of Lake Superior. Good location to daytrip out to Isle Royale NP. Casino undergoing remodel and additions with construction equipment. Workers occupy one end of the CG. Must contact the marina office and register before selecting a site. Laundry and restrooms were clean. If we ever return to Minnesota we may stay here again.

This park is in a very remote part of Northern Minnesota and overlooks a big bay on Lake Superior. Walking distance to the casino, trading post with a full selection of groceries, restaurant, boat launch, and use of indoor pool at Grand Portage Lodge. The wifi signal worked great which was a surprise. No cell phone service. Near GP State Park which has a great 1/2 mile trail to Pigeon Falls. Near Canadian border. Quiet place to relax for a few days! A fisherman's paradise. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Motorhome.
