Ontonagon Township Park

Shady and peaceful. Tucked away on the beautiful Lake Superior shore northeast of downtown, this simple, pleasant park and campground enjoys a wonderful setting at the end of Ontonagon's nicest old street. The public beach, nearly a mile long, is sandy, with enough stones for interesting rock-picking. The park faces northwest, providing a wonderful sunset walk either along the long sidewalk with benches by the street (wheelchair-accessible) or along the beach. There's a picnic area with tables and fire pits, and a good view southwest down to the Porkies. The park includes a playground and Portajohns. Tip: for good driftwood, go to the beach's southwest end. Easy access to fishing. Campsites under big pines and are big enough to accommodate 35' rigs, but don't provide privacy between sites. Electricity and water serves each site, but there are no showers or flush toilets. There's a playground and a walkway to town. Sunset views from the walkway or beach are outstanding. This is a real find for spur-of-the-moment vacationers who haven't made reservations at the Porkies. Thus far, it only fills on holiday weekends. Not reservable.
