We heard about Woodland Park Campground, a Burt Township Park in Grand Marais on Lake Superior, from David & Sherry. The sites have water, 50amp electric and cable, but no sewer . . . and they are in a beautiful location!
They don’t take reservations, but we called and were assured that we would not have any trouble coming in on Monday or Tuesday.
So, we were surprised to arrive on Tuesday and see the campground pretty full! The Park Manager pointed out a few sites that she knew were empty, but told us to go ahead and drive through and find a site we liked. If there was no tag on the post, the site was available. There was a motorhome and another 5th Wheel looking for a site at the same time, but fortunately we had the car and could maneuver more easily through the roads.
The motorhome was stopped in front of one of the lakefront sites,
so we just drove around them and continued on to the next site.
Site 7 was a large site at the end of the road,
across from the playground and the open area overlooking the lake.
It seemed like both of the other campers may have been interested in this site, but we just pulled the car onto it, and called Nicolas on the radio to bring the RV around.
We got set up and had some lunch, and then Tom and the boys went to play basketball while I got some work done.
Tom thought they were a little crazy.
The beach was beautiful!
The boys put their feet in the water, but it was pretty cold and they didn’t get much further! Casey was ready to go in, though!
Nicolas found a stick to throw for her, and she dove right in!
I think she was shocked by the cold, though . . . she wasn’t too anxious to go back in again!
Later in the afternoon, the clouds rolled in and the wind picked up quite a bit. This was more how I remember Lake Superior!
It’s still a beautiful sight, though!
What a difference a day makes!
Wednesday’s temperature was a lot cooler than Tuesday, and it was still a little windy, but the lake had calmed down and we had a beautiful sunset!
Yep – it was a pretty nice location!
