Portions of the campground at Michigan’s Baraga State Park will be closed throughout the summer as $1.2 million in upgrades are completed, according to MLive.com.
The 56-acre park, which is situated along the Lake Superior shoreline on Keweenaw Bay, offers 114 campsites, a minicabin and a teepee.
Beginning May 1, the north side of the campground will be closed for construction, reopening June 28. The south side closure will begin July 15 and continue through the end of the camping season.
Construction is expected to be completed by Nov. 1.
“The project will be completed in two phases,” said Dan Dowdy, supervisor of the Baraga State Park Management Unit. “We understand this will cause some disruption for campers and we appreciate in advance the patience of park visitors as we make these substantial upgrades.”
Park improvements will include an upgrade to the electrical system, resulting in new 20/30- and 50-amp services, site renovations to include camper pads, more pull-through sites and the addition of 14 full-hookup sites offering 50-amp service, plus water and sewer.
“The new campground design will result in the availability of 95 sites that will accommodate larger recreation vehicles and electrical pedestals,” Dowdy said.
