Campground Description

Introduction Craig Lake State Park is the most remote state park in the system. It spans more than 6,900 acres in Baraga County. Craig Lake is a wilderness area and access into the park is somewhat of an adventure. Vehicles with high ground clearance are recommended due to the rocky conditions of the road. The park contains six full lakes and numerous small ponds along with a variety of wildlife such as deer, black bear, beaver, loons and a portion of the Upper Peninsula moose herd. Craig Lake is 374 acres and features six islands and high granite bluffs along its northern shoreline.

    We've been going to Craig Lake for 20 years now and have stayed in both cabins and have camped in many of the sites around the lake. It's a bit of work getting back in, so plan on staying at least three nights to make it worth it. You will not be disappointed. Great fishing, hiking, stargazing and adventuring, all enhanced with the knowledge that you are in the most remote state park in Michigan. I've been to every remote corner of the state and this is my favorite place, next to Isle Royale.
