Monocle Lake Campground has something for everyone. Monocle Lake is a perfect place to use as a home-base while visiting the many recreational opportunities available in the Sault Ste. Marie area, as well as exploring the Whitefish Bay National Scenic Byway all the way to Tahquamenon Falls. Monocle Lake offers a quiet, relaxing place to fish, swim, hike, and just enjoy the outdoors while camped along the shores of a lovely inland lake. Link to Campground Map
