Tourist Park Campground
The City-owned and operated Tourist Park is located approximately 1/2 mile north of Wright Street on Sugar Loaf Avenue on the north edge of the City. 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 being 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, drinking fountains, and three large picnic areas. It is one mile from Lake Superior beaches, next to the City bike path, as well as near the Noquemanon Trail Network–miles of unpaved access to hikers, mountain bikers and runners. Tourist Park is the site of the annual Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival.
There is a $5.00 reservation fee. There is a 14 night limit on reservations, and reservations may be made at any time. Online reservations must be made at least five days in advance of when you want to camp. The season begins in May and lasts through October, depending on weather. There is a $20.00 cancellation fee. Professional staff are able to assist with questions and provide brochures for your needs. We ask all campers to please abide by the Tourist Park rules and policies.
