The Northern Lights Campground is located just off Highway M-95, one of the main north-south routes in the Central Upper Peninsula, in North Republic, between the shores of the Michigamme River and School Lake. We offers great fishing, boating, and kayaking on the Michigamme River. The park features 11 30/50 amp electric and water hookup sites, 12 spacious rustic sites located in a natural setting, and cable TV and Wi-Fi. The RV sites are located in an open setting with gravel roads and site pads with each featuring a campfire ring and a picnic table. There is a new vault toilet and an RV dump station for usage. Whether its for a night or two, we hope to see you soon!

Open Dates: May 1 to October 31

As you can see the campground is small but nice and quiet.  Canoes and Kayaks can be launched directly from the shore on the Michigamme River side.  A public beach, playground and other amenities are just a short walk away.The sewer dump station is only 1/2 block from the campground itself and easily accessible for any size rig.  Also a short walk away is the neighborhood restaurant and also a bar.  Each site has its own fire ring and picnic table.

Republic, Michigan is located almost in the direct center of the Upper Peninsula.  There are boat tours, waterfalls, casinos, festivals, deep water fishing, restaurants, theaters, (live action and film), nature reserves, walking, biking, ORV and hiking trails all within easy reach.  There are many opportunities for day trips.  Don't hesitate to ask the locals for advice on where to go and what to see, they are really friendly folks.

Overall Rating: 4.3

Clean spacious sites. Modern bathroom. 3rd year we've stayed here for several nights. Kayaked down the Michigamee River right to the campground.

Clean, level, quiet - especially for being right in town. Doesn't feel like you are right in town. Fishing and kayaking right there. We will be back!

Steve Valine

Beautiful place to stay! Great little town right on the river. Convenience store, bar, area churches, Town Garden all within walking distance. Quiet, peaceful - just a great place to visit!

Campground is neat and clean. There are not any showers and bathrooms are pit toilets which were very clean also. The park is located right in the small town of Republic on the Michigamme River. The sites have gravel or concrete pads and are level. A nice place to stay if you are doing any activities in the area such as fishing or kayaking.
