RV Parking and Camping Information
o 10 sites with 20 amp electrical services
o 7 picnic tables are available by area of sites
The "ghost" mining town in nearby Fayette is very interesting and so is the Palm Book "Big Spring" state park where there is a neat self powered "raft" that takes ~20 people at a time across the spring where the water is so clear you can see the 10,000 gal/min water entering through the bottom 40' below. It costs $8 for either one but they can both be visited in a day for one admission.
There are ten RV sites on the west side of the parking lot and each site has 20-amp service, but no water or sewer. The sites are on grass and are very long, but are not wide. The RV park is seldom full so parking in every other site gives a lot of room. The 20-amp electric was strong and never dropped below 115-volts, but we did not attempt to run the air conditioner. (Hint: park near the post with the circuit breakers and your voltage will not drop much.)
The sites are $10 a night, but the casino reimburses campers with $10 in tokens. When you register be sure to tell the clerk there are two people in the RV or you will only get $5 in tokens. If you don't want to pay for the RV park there is parking for RVs in a level gravel parking lot behind the paved parking lot for cars. Campers are welcome to boondock in that lot free. The slots seemed to be a bit tight and the restaurant is small and didn't look very inviting so we ate in town.
We stayed at Kewadin - Manistique about a week ago. The report from Gail H., August 2008 appears to be for Kewadin - Sault Ste Marie and not for Manistique.
The electric hookups at Manistique are new -- installed within the past few months. Voltage dropped to about 105V when drawing 15A. We were told it is okay to park in the parking lot without paying a fee. However, the $10/night fee is "refunded" in the form of slot tokens. Tokens to be played in a small number of “token only” three-reel slots.
Parking area is about 100 yards from casino just beyond the west edge of the parking lot
