Aune Osborn is located on the St. Mary's River and makes for great freighter watching. And you won't have to wait long to see a freighter either. They pass through the Soo Locks on a regular basis (the Soo Locks are busier than the Panama Canal). It is very interesting to watch as the ships navigate the river, and they... More

Because Aune Osborn is relatively new, the trees aren't large and it has a bit of a parking lot look. However, the showers and laundry look new and were well kept. The gal at the registration desk was super nice. We had a site on the water and loved seeing the freighters go by.

Convenient location, with amply sized lots even for big rigs. Pads are grass & gravel and are quite level. Some low areas are slow to drain after a deluge. Water, electric & WiFi in most sites. Like I said, it's all about the view.

We have enjoyed staying here the past several years. Lots are nice and spacious. Watching the freighters cruise up and down river is enjoyable. Could spend hours watching them. Prices are reasonable and staff is friendly. Restrooms are well maintained. Location is convenient to casino and downtown area.

We booked this campground because of it's location within walking distance from the Soo Locks #1 to take the tour during our stay. Watching the boats going up and down the St. Mary's River was great!! Didn't mind the ferry whistle either. No shade but our weather was not hot so it was fine but if we needed our A/C... More

A must campground to stay for viewing the big lakers as they enter/leave the Soo Locks. Typical RV park with close sites in a treeless environment. Boat launch also attached to park and casino nearby.

Our recent trip to the Aune-Osborn campground was great! Loved how we could enjoy the freighters up close and found it very surprising that you can't even hear them coming! The Sugar Island ferry does sound every now and then, but got used to it quickly. The staff is friendly, other campers were friendly, the facilities are very nice and... More

I usually don't give stuff a 1 star but for this place I have to! Their is no cover from each site and the sites are very close together. The staff is usually rude also... Their are a lot of better options around town.

We absolutely love this campground. The people who work there are just super, restrooms and laundry area are clean. If something needs attention its done. Even received help backing in my camper. Good spacing between spots unlike the campground before this one. Being able to watch the freighters morning and night tops it all. Quiet campground and the boat launch... More
