On our way from Sault Ste Marie to Whitefish Point, we stopped at Brimley State Park. It was a cold day, so we were the only ones there. But it has a great view of the Lake, the picnic areas looked nice, and the bathrooms were clean.

Good sized sites, friendly folk, gorgeous beach, plenty to do in the surrounding areas, if you're inclined to leave the park.

Dirty smelly bathrooms. Their playground consists of swings and a slide. Nothing to see nothing to do. Very noisy at night.

Just a drive through. Appeared to be a nice smaller and remote place for recreation on the beautiful shores of the Lake Superior...

Brimley State Park in located in Brimley, MIchigan, along the shore of Lake Superior. It is 15 miles from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The park has a great day use area, with lots of space, all grass, volleyball, playground ( of the old equipment variety-huge swings, huge slide, monkey bars and a merry go round), a sandy beach, a screened-in pavilion, lots of picnic tables. The campground sites are for the most part all grassy, lots of shade, and clean. The bathrooms were always clean, except for the occasional "child/teen" trashing of such, with toilet paper being dumped all over the floor. This is always quickly cleaned up by park personnel, sometimes seen at 2 AM cleaning the bathhouses! There was a problem with one bathhouse and earwigs! Ugh! The showers were hot, clean, and good water pressure-a godsend to campers! The staff was friendly and polite, and the location is great for touring the Eastern/Central UP attractions. There is a small market directly across the street from the park. About 1/2 mile down the road is a gas station/convenience store, a bar, and a decent restaurant. The beach is very sandy, and the water shallow, warm and clean. You can view huge ore boats (freighters) from the beach as the enter the St. Mary's River system. This is one of our favorite state parks.
