Fronting the Dead River, the nicely wooded 40-acre park provides visitors with a clean, pleasant and convenient place to camp in the immediate Marquette area. There are approximately 20 acres of campground space with 110 camping sites. One hundred sites provide electrical hookups to accommodate RVs and trailers with the remainder sites designed for primitive style tenting. Each camping site has a picnic table and barbecue pits are available throughout the campground. There are 38 sites with water and sewer service. Campground facilities also include hot showers, restrooms/flush toilets, sanitary dump stations and paved roads. The campground has a small playground, grills, grassy open space, hiking trails, bike pump track, drinking fountains, and three large picnic areas. It is one mile from Lake Superior beaches, next to the City multi-use bike path, as well as near the Noquemanon Trail Network--miles of unpaved access to hikers, mountain bikers and runners.
