Curry Park Campground Ironwood

curry park campground Ironwood, MI

Review Ironwood, Michigan Municipal Campground Curry Park is on the Western edge of Ironwood, located on US Highway 2. It is a city owned campground and is located next to Gogebic County Fairgrounds. Until recently we didn’t realize the campground was as extensive as it is. We had the impression it was primarily a tenting campground with only a few sites suitable for RVs. We also had the impression it wasn’t well-maintained; it looked somewhat “rustic.” In the fall of 2021 finding a vacant RV campsite was a challenge due…

Woodland Park Campground – Grand Marais

Woodland Park Campground

Campground Review – Grand Marais, Michigan Municipal Campground Woodland Park is situated on a bluff overlooking Lake Superior. It is one of our favorite RV campgrounds because it is located on one of the most popular rock hound and agate hunting beaches around the Big Lake. The campground is only three blocks from the main business section of Grand Marais and four blocks from the town swimming beach situated in a warm water bay off Lake Superior. The park is also at the Eastern Edge of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.…

Fall Color – Black River Scenic Byway

black river scenic byway

We were in the Ironwood area at the end of September, about a week early for the best fall color along the National Forest Scenic Byway from Ironwood to Black River Harbor. The best fall color was actually in Ironwood at the Curry Park campground. Even though it wasn’t full color along the Scenic Byway, it was a beautiful sunny day for a drive and the fall landscape was quite colorful even so. On the way to the harbor we passed Powderhorn Mountain Ski Area with attractive splashes of color…

Apostle Island Sea Caves

Sand Island Lighthouse Apostles

Visiting the Apostle Islands Sea Caves In 2016 we chartered a boat ride with Captain Mike out of Cornucopia for an Apostle Islands Sea Caves and Sunset Tour. We had previously taken a similar trip around the islands with Apostle Islands Cruise Service on one of their 65 foot long cruise ships. Captain Mike’s ship is half that length and his cruise is customized to his passengers (there were only four of us) needs. So we got closer to the caves and saw more detail and variety of sights than we…

Pictured Rocks Boat Cruise

The Pictured Rocks of Pictured Rocks National Park In September of 2016 Jo and Donna took the Pictured Rocks Cruise on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We had taken the Sunset Pictured Rocks Cruise a few years ago but that was an early evening cruise on a more overcast day, so the girls were looking forward to doing another cruise – in the daytime and when the sun was shining. The cruise ship was packed as many other people also felt this was a great day for a cruise out on…
