We've camped here two years in a row and we've loved it both times. It's a LONG drive, but totally worth it. There are tons of trees and Lake Fanny Hoe is beautiful not to mention how close it is to Lake Superior. It's by far my favorite state park in Michigan.

I have been coming to Copper Harbor/Fort Wilkens for the past 20 years. Some years as many as three times a year.The park hasn't changed a bit in these 20 years. It's still a friendly, quiet place to camp. While the facilities are older, they are very well maintained by the park workers. I usually reserve the mini-cabin, I've camped... More

We have tented at Ft.Wilkins throughout my children's youth. We tend to stay at the more rustic section as there is more privacy between sites. Try camping Encampment. So neat to hear the Gaitling guns, troops marching through camp, historical activities, and so on. My kids learned a lot without even knowing it.

Great campground, great sites. Near water, trails, shopping and dining. Plenty to do or simply just relax. Will go back again on the Fall for color season. Very family friendly. The Fort was very interesting.

Camped for two days in early October and had a fantastic time. The campground was not crowded and was at the peak of color. Lots of walking and hiking opportunities at the park and nearby. Also, somebody was providing free internet service. We will be back!

The campground is adjacent to the historic fort, which is well worth a visit, and runs along an inland lake, so all campsites are within a short walk to the water. It's within walking distance to town, and there is a footpath so you don't have to walk on the road. Sites are a bit close, so you will hear... More

I stayed in the Western portion of the campground so I cannot speak to the Eastern portion. The Western area is a compact loop, but there enough trees to provide a decent level of privacy. Restrooms were clean and modern. Nice location on Lake Fanny Hooe with a short walk (via a trail) to Fort Wilkins.

Our first vacation ever as a family was to the U.P. Our first stop was Fort Wilkins State Park. We camped there for two nights and did not want to leave!! It was peaceful, beautiful, the best vacation ever!!! It was a little chilly in our tent at night, but so what, we were way up north in the UP... More
