River Park Campground
Every time we cross the river into the Upper Peninsula from Wisconsin we spot this campground from the bridge and say to ourselves “Wait, what’s that park?” This time around Darren remembered that fact when searching for stops along our path. It was a bit difficult to research the park as the city’s website has moved and none of the links were working. So, he phoned the campground and talked to the answering machine as it was already well past five in the evening, however, our call was returned. We were told that the did still have a few spots left and that they would hold one for us.
We arrived quite late, around 8:00 PM, and there was still someone in the office. After checking in, we were pleased to find that the park looked just as inviting as it did from the bridge. This is one of those immaculately maintained city parks with the mainstay of campers being retirees camping for the season. Usually, we find, the price to pay for inexpensive, pristine parks is strict or unreasonable rules. We found none of that at this park. It is a good deal at $30/night for full hook-ups (30 amp, which we call “Canadian full hook-ups”) The added bonus is a grocery store within walking distance that includes a liquor store selling copious amounts of craft beer. Well, it is Michigan.
