Description

SmokinSoleResort is a five acre camp in the woods one mile from Eagle River, Michigan and the shore of Lake Superior, on the beautiful Keweenaw peninsula, at the tip top of the Michigan U.P.

Our camp sites are not at our home. As stated above, they are at our camp. We have a small cabin there, and try to spend as many weekends as possible at the camp during the season. Since we are both employed, we are unable to be there during the work week. The camp is only about a block's distance from the highway and a mile from the nearest small town, but it is still a little isolated, and for this reason we prefer that our guests are there on the weekends (typically Friday and Saturday night), when we are also there. It should also be noted that, although we have had no problem with unwelcome wildlife, the Keweenaw peninsula is in black bear country and there are both bears and wolves in the general area. Other wildlife (deer, coyotes, racoon, opossum, squirels, partridge, woodpeckers, and a host of other birds and wildlife) is abundant!

House Rules

No campfires other than in the fire ring at the main cabin (unless it's too dry or windy).

Access Road Conditions

Narrow road with sharp turn into property from the blacktop. Hard packed rock. Not perfectly smooth but only a short distance from the blacktop. We pull in a 30+ foot fifth wheel, but you need to be an experienced camper/RV driver to make the turn from the blacktop.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

Anywhere in the area

Availability

SmokinSoleResort is closed for the season, and until June 15, 2018 when the snow is gone.

When we are open, we have spots available for one camper 22' or less, and two campers up to 35'. The smaller spot is a level rock pad. The larger spots are on the grass and will require more leveling.

Our first...

Boon Dockers experience AND it was most excellent. She, the hostess with the mostest and he the host with the most. An evening sitting outside with great company and great food. We got lots of local tips from restaurants to near by attractions. All leading to fun. A definite "10."

OMG! Super Hosts!

So the hostess should be her own little visitor center. Oh wait, she is! They had lists of hikes, swimming beaches, and a wealth of historical info. Never mind that this spot is soooo pretty and the whole area is breathtaking. I wish I could have stayed a week! Well worth the extra miles to get out on the peninsula and into Lake Superior's heart and sole! I dropped the 5th and went off on day trips. The couple could not have been more friendly, hospitable and generous! I sooo hope they will come stay with me in NY.

Pleasant and private

They were not around much when we were there, but when we saw them they had good recommendations for sight seeing. We stayed 2 nights, and enjoyed driving around the peninsula.

Smokin' great boondocks hosts!

Paul and I spent a night at the SmokinSoleResort and could not have been more pleased or surprised with our stay. First, Joyce knocked herself out prior to our visit providing travel tips about the UP area. We followed her advice and enjoyed attractions and features we may not have otherwise discovered. She and Gary were warm, hospitable, and eager to share with us one of the UP's traditions - pasties! Sitting around a campfire in their private camp was super. Hard to beat their hospitality. They're down-to-earth generous and fun people and we are so glad to have spent time with them.
