Campground Review: Marquette Tourist Park, MI

By:  Sandra Crespo

28th Nov, 17

We had the honor of staying here in exchange for an honest review and we ended up paying for an extra night on the day we were checking out because we loved it so much! Chuck made our check-in process super easy and quick. He was very helpful since he knew it was our first time in the area.

We stayed here in our 44' Heartland 5th wheel toy hauler and didn't have too much trouble getting into our spot (we were parked in site #66). We had a full hook up site (30 amp) and although our sewer was way back we managed to make it work with 3 of our 10' sewer hoses attached together.

This park's location is PERFECT! It is not right in the city but close enough to tons of stores and downtown Marquette. Something we loved was that we had direct access to bike paths so we didn't really have to drive to go do some sightseeing! Now we are researching mountain bikes because you better believe we want to start riding these trails as we continue to explore!

The park has firewood and ice available for purchase at the front which is super convenient. We did not personally use the bath houses but I did include a video showing the inside of one of the bath houses. I really really really loved the beautiful trees and the shade we had at our site!

The park has a playground, which was a bit outdated, but I know my kids would've enjoyed it. We just didn't have a chance to use it because we were too busy chasing waterfalls and being super adventurous! They also have a beach where we were able to witness incredible sunsets without driving anywhere!

This place is great whether you are in a tent, travel trailer, or fifth wheel… Literally there is an accommodation for you! They have a variety of sites. I am sure you will find one to fit what you need!

Something I was super surprised by was the speed of the free wifi! YES, FREE wifi! I couldn't believe how fast it was! It allowed my to catch up on some work because with our full time travels sometimes our internet is not always very reliable (#RVlife lol).

We will be back and we highly recommend checking this park out during your stay in the Upper Peninsula!
