Our almost 4 acre slice of paradise. Last stop on the Ontonagon River before Lake Superior. Public access to Lake Superior is a short walk from our yard. When there are no burn bans, you can have a fire in our fire pit. We do have some larger wood available onsite at no charge if you wish to use it. Note: There is an active factory next door that has gotten busier and can make a lot of noise. Daytime noise probably isn't too problematic but it can go on at night too. Last year we opted to not offer camp sites for this reason. This year we decided to open up but to make sure guests know the potential. It is a weld shop so the noise is usually grinding or pounding of a hammer. In warmer weather, they open the door and it can be noisy for sure...but many have said it is still quieter than where their home is. Please be sure you are okay with this before booking. They currently work 5am-3am M-Thu and then a small crew 5am-5pm Fri-Sun. Friday-Saturday and Sunday are least likely to make noise but it is still possible.

Lovely spot along the river. We heard a bit of the noise that the owners very honestly reported, but it wasn't bad at all! It certainly didn't wake us up or bother our visit. Nice to be able to walk into town to restaurants and also walk to the beach.

The place was great and would recommend it to any one for an easy camping experience. Very close to town and a beautiful sand beach.

This was my first HipCamp stay. The surroundings were pleasant, in spite of the downtown and industry nearby. It was great to be able to walk to the lake, or to the restaurants and shops downtown. But the mosquitos were terrible. I mean, really terrible. The bathroom was adequate but not very clean. The hosts were helpful. I think the price was a bit high considering the industrial location and lack of a shower.

My husband and I loved this site! This was our second time here. The owners are very friendly and hospitable and the property is lovely! The beach is just a short walk away and we enjoyed a fire at the beach while watching the sunset. Some local restaurants are also just a short walk away as well.

Matt and KJ are great and hospitable, they took the time to answer my pre-trip questions. Great location with a cute Superior beach right across the street. Not ideal weather, but a great trip overall :)
