The two RV Gypsies
at Grand Marais RV Park and Campground

Grand Marais RV Park and Campground sign
the RV of the two RV Gypsies at Grand Marais RV Park and Campground

Grand Marias RV Park and Campground is only open May 1 to mid-October. Tent & Electric only sites available year round. There was free Wi-Fi at the office, be sure to get a code. The two RV Gypsies were parked just across from the campground office, so the Wi-Fi came in at their site, but it was very slow and annoying. The roads in the campground were mostly paved, but some were dirt roads. The campground had great water pressure. Campers can use the Municipal pool and spa directly across the street at a cost of $4 a day with campground receipt (that is a $1 savings - yippee) The Municipal Pool closed sharply at 9 p.m. - free lockers and key available. 

Check out time was 1 p.m. - that is later than most campgrounds and they ask that you check out at the office itself before leaving. This is a big park and quite beautiful. Be sure to walk around to the back of the park where you can walk on the rocks and see the lighthouse. Those photos are on this page. The campground is within walking distance to the city of Grand Marais, and a very good restaurant, Harbor House Grille. There is a large picnic pavilion at the back of the park. Also ask at office about pool and golf specials.

The below sign is a picture of the sign seen on the boat in the photo below. The boat was located in the back of the park. It will probably be moved after it is restored.

The photos below were all taken at the back of the park - this is a must-see area.

Built in 1922 of steel, this structure replaced a wooden structure built of surplus and salvaged materials installed in 1886. The lighthouse is located on the East Pier of the harbor and the grounds are accessible to visitors. Because of the narrow opening, a smaller secondary light was installed on the West Pier in 1902.

The picture shown below taken with a self-timer camera. The sun was bright and the two RV Gypsies could not tell it was blurry by looking through the digital screen. Oh well.

The two RV Gypsies were not sure what the house shown below was used for, but they thought it had something to do with dogs.
