Twelve Mile Beach Campground Summary
This campground is situated 15 miles west of Grand Marais off Alger County Road H-58.

The campground's 36 sites are located on a high sandy plateau above Twelvemile Beach on Lake Superior. There are two disabled accessible campsites. Generator use is prohibited in the campground's west loop.

There are three sets of stairs to the beach as well as a day use picnic area and parking. The two mile long White Birch Interpretive Trail begins and ends at the campground. The North Country National Scenic Trail treks through the campground. The entrance road winds through a picturesque white birch forest.

Because the turning radius and some parking site lengths are limited within this campground, we recommend single vehicles no more than 36 feet and vehicle/trailer combined length no more than 42 feet.

Camper Jim's Comments on Twelve Mile Beach Campground
Twelve Mile Beach Campground is quite the sight! A very secluded campground in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Twelve Mile Beach is a great place to get away from it all and take in all Lake Superior has to offer. Many waterfalls are in the area and you can catch a senic boat tour out of Munising to get a breathtaking view of the Pictured Rocks. Incredible sunsets looking out over Lake Superior will create many memories.

Many of the sites are located along the beach bluff and have a 20-30 foot drop to the beach itself. There is no power or modern facilites at the campground, only drop toilets, hand pump, and trash cans. I have not been here in the summer, however if you would like to get a site along the beach, I imagine it might take a bit of luck.
