Bay View Campground Map 2014

Camp along the shores of Lake Superior - "By the shores of Gitche Gumee, by the Shining Big-Sea-Waters" - the greatest single body of fresh water in the world. 

Miles of sandy beach and beautiful sunsets across Lake Superior are yours to enjoy at Bay View Campground. Twenty-five campsites are available with picnic tables and fire rings at each site. 


Experience Nature at Bay View Campground

After a fun day of hiking, swimming, boating, biking, or fishing for trout or salmon, relax and take in all nature has to offer as the early explorers once did. In the evening, listen for the woeful cry of a loon or the towering red and white pine, oak, maple, and white birch trees as the wind rustles the leaves. View a  map of available campsites, or make a reservation for Bay View Campground.
