Black Beach Municipal Campground – Coming May 2020!

Black Beach Campground will be owned and managed by the City of Silver Bay.  It is a 49-site campground that will have 30-amp electricity throughout all sites and 34 of the sites will also have 50-amp electric service and full water and sewer hookups. Most of the sites will accommodate larger RV’s that have difficulty finding appropriate size sites in other campgrounds along the North Shore.  There will also be a few pull-through sites.  Rentals will be either nightly or weekly.

The main building will house the required lavatories and bathing units.  There will be a playground, a group picnic area, and walking trail in the campground leading to Black Beach.
