Not only does Fort Wilkins Historic State Park offer camping and day use facilities, but it also features an 1844 military outpost. If that isn’t enough, it also contains one of the first lighthouses built on Lake Superior.
There is plenty of activities to do here, including biking, fishing, hiking, swimming, cross-country skiing, and wildlife watching. The hiking trail, Fort Wilkins Foot Trail, is 4.0 miles long and is open to a variety form of traffic.
There are three options for camping at the historical park, including a cabin, a group use area, and a modern campground made up of 159 campsites.
Overall, this is a nice family campground but not a great option if you prefer a rustic style of camping like we do.
