“Very relaxing campground”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Took a chance coming here based on the reviews and had a really great time. The park is very clean, depending on where your site is you have lots of room in between neighbors. The sunsets are picture perfect and you can rock hunt down at the beach till no end. Copper Harbor is such a beautiful place to visit, the drive up there alone is worth it.

We had a wonderful weekend at McClain State Park. We camped in our camper and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful beach. We took a drive up to Copper Harbor and Eagle Harbor. Make sure to stop at the jam and jelly place operated by monks that is on the road back to the campground from Eagle Harbor.

We visited the McLain State Park in the summer and winter. During the summer, we had a good time going to the light house (it is risky because of the rocks) and looking at agate rocks on the beach. In the winter, we enjoyed looking at the partly frozen Lake Superior and snow shoe-ing around the area.

It’s off peak so my friend just phoned in for reservation. Stayed in a mini cabin fronting Lake Superior. The staff was kind enough to warm it up prior to our arrival. Had a very pleasant stay. Few visitors at this time. For the nature trip and the splendid sunset that comes with a double bunk bed with mattresses, heaters, fridge, stove, table, chairs, picnic table, grill and a fire ring, at less than 40USD off-peak with an MI Recreation Passport is cheap. Will definitely recommend.
