Date of Stay: August 8 through 10, 2010.
Weather During Stay: Quite a mix of sunny and cool; hot and humid (including warm fog); and rain.
Site Description: This combination mobile home park (older single-wides), RV park, and campground is quiet and convenient. It appears that FHU RV sites have been added as mobile homes have been removed, resulting in about a dozen 50 amp FHU sites in various spots in the small park. Another dozen W/E sites are in a row adjacent to a large grassy area for tent camping (unusually appealing tent area for an RV park).
We were in a FHU site in a row of half a dozen large RV’s. The site was a level back-in, gravel and grass, with a sturdy picnic table. Our site was reasonably roomy with space for slides and awnings. The park road is paved and easily negotiated by big rigs.
Dump station, bathhouse and laundry on site. Very reliable electricity even on a hot afternoon.
Rate: $24/night for FHU; don’t know the rate for W/E or tent camping.
Phone/radio/TV: Good Verizon signal for phones and aircard. No obstacles to block our roof-mounted satellite TV. Twelve channels on air antenna. No cable TV. NPR broadcast from Minneapolis on 100.5; Duluth probably has a station, too.
Elevation/landscape/terrain: This is a small, open campground at lake level (Lake Superior). Views are of the owner’s home (owner lives on site), older single-wide mobile homes, other rigs, and large trees.
Lighting/noise: Conveniently located a couple blocks off of Hwy 2 on the east end of Superior in a residential neighborhood, road noise and other city/residential noise is noticeable during the day, lighter at night. Several large security lights reflected off our rig at night.
Favorite Sites: Sites in our row were all very similar, so no favorites here.
Hiking/Walking: A long, paved walk/bike trail runs alongside Hwy 2 and Lake Superior through town. Very pleasant walking, just a few blocks from the campground.
Comments: We wanted an easily accessible, level, FHU site with reliable 50 amp service for a 3 day stay between W/E sites, and Nemadji delivered it all at a bargain price. Nothing here for kids (though a few live in the park), just us old retired folks. Very friendly and helpful owner. There is a small grocery store nearby, with Target and WalMart within 5 miles. Easy access to downtown Duluth, the harbor, and the lift bridge. We would return.
