Jul 2016 - $9.00
The rate reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount. Do not just blindly follow your GPS to reach this campground. You will want to take County Route 2 from Highway 61. It is paved for about three miles, then becomes (good during our visit) gravel/dirt for the next 20 miles or so. During our visit they were working on the road in preparation for paving part of this, so your results may vary.
There are 49 sites with about half reservable. Most sites are large, level and well separated with lots of vegetation for privacy. There is fresh water for filling a tank and a dump station located at the outfitters that manage this campground. There are no hookups, so this is dry camping. The outfitters have showers and laundry available for a fee. The outfitters host were nice and helpful. We had no cell voice or data with Verizon. The outfitters do have very slow WiFi at their offices, next to the campground. We were unable to get a satellite, even with a portable dish because of tree cover. We enjoyed our stay. - TheJim

The campground is in a dense stand of red pine. It is a popular National Forest campground. There is no water, electricity or sewer at the sites. There are pit toilets and water spigots scattered throughout the campground. There is a free RV dump, pay showers and pay laundry at the outfitters that manages the campground. There are about a dozen sites that overlook Sawbill Lake. - Teardrop11

Note - 2019 Bathrooms are a tear down, no flush toilets or showers. We're self contained, so not an issue and we finally scored a site on the lake in 2019. As usual, Temperance exceeded our expectations for hiking and camping (see previous posts). We have never experienced such bad mosquitoes as we did this past summer in July. This campground is so popular that we weren't able to complete our stay in our favorite site. Our next site, 21 was closer to the lake, which was wonderful. - brendajoro

Loved this park. We spent 6 nights in site 24E (electric site) in the C loop, which is the quiet loop. Site was wooded and mostly private - we couldn't see other campsites - other than the one directly across the road from us. Across the road and down a few steps we found a beautiful trail to the lake, where we could hike along the shore and rarely see a person. - Rather-B-Camping

This is one of our top 5 favorite State Parks. The park is very well maintained and the bathrooms are very clean. Due to the heavy rain, the river was unusually high and fierce. Hiking is always great here, but can get a little congested. Bike riding or walking on the Superior trail is highly recommended. Make reservations early because this campground is full from June through mid-October. We stayed in site 37 electric, which is the size of 2 campsites. The fire pit and picnic table are on the opposite side, but we didn't mind due to the amount of space in this site. The campground map does not list that site 19 is a pull-thru site and is large enough to accommodate a big rig. The sites on the lake look wonderful, although, we've never been lucky enough to get one.
(Update to the previous review: this is not the only electric State Park on the North Shore. Tettegouche (our favorite) and Cascade River also have electric sites.)
There is no dump station here, so you will need to go to the town of Silver Bay, about 20-25 minutes South or to North to Cascade River to dump. - brendajoro

Staff is great= friendly and helpful; tried to help in any way needed. We thought we reserved a 50 amp site but when we got here it was 30 amp (there are only two 50 amps in the park). Since the weather was cool we did not need our a/c so we had no problem. The site was set off by itself with woods on 3 sides. The utilities had to be run under the trailer but we had enough long hoses to make it work. Utilities worked fine. The site is level. Their office has gifts available for purchase. A short walk on their property takes you to a nice breakfast/lunch/bakery. It was lovely to be near Lake Superior. There is a 12 mile drive to do laundry in Lutsen. - GailMOH

Excellent location on the shore of Lake superior. There are a limited number of FHU sites. Bike and hike trails are very close by. Customer service was excellent. Very clean bathrooms. - durham4926

I have been staying at Crooked Lake Resort for years! I bring both my family and church youth group there regularly, and we always have a great time. The grouse hunting is great in the fall. They have very nice cabins (no running water) and excellent shower facilities. The sauna is wood-fired and as hot as any I've enjoyed. I highly recommend Crooked Lake Resort for those who don't mind a little "roughing it." The campground and cabins have "out house" facilities, but there are modern bathrooms available in the restaurant. The lake is excellent for fishing, and the shoreline is shallow and good for swimming, especially for children. You won't be disappointed! - Pastor Marc Monte
