What's a few good Campgrounds in the UP that have Electric hook ups and are near some decent Hiking trails and Scenic places? maybe even the best Months to visit? been a bad winter, so gearing up for some Summer Camping trips now. Thanks in advance.

This summer, we camped at AuTrain Lake campground (https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/hiawatha/recarea/?recid=13283). Excellent location, plenty to do nearby. Pictured Rocks National Shoreline is very close by as well as many hiking trails, lakes, rivers, waterfalls etc.

I have to partially retract my statement, I can't recall if that campground had electric hookups (we tent camped).

McClain or Fort Wilkins State Parks are good. McClain is right on the shores of Lake Superior and Fort Wilkins is on Lake Fanny Hooe. Fort Wilkins is a great historical military fort that was in use before the civil war until early 1900's many weekends they have character actors on site in several of the restored buildings. Everything from full hook ups to tent camping available at both. Make your reservations early if you want a lake front spot at McClain.

Seriously........Any state park, they are all great and all have electricity. Pick one where you want to be and enjoy!!

Union Bay Campground in the Porcupine Mountains State Park has electric hookup, The Presque Isle Campground does not. Otherwise all Michigan State Parks have electric, and water fill / dump stations, as well as modern pluming/ shower facilities. McLain State Park will be without modern pluming for part of the summer as they are re-working sites due to erosion State forest campgrounds are rustic, no electric and vault toilets.

Houghton and Hancock both have municipal parks with power.

Fort Wilkins in Copper Harbor does too.

Check the web to update status of McLain later in the spring.
