Schoolcraft is located in a beautiful stand of CCC planted Norway (red) pine. This is a somewhat primitive campground. There are some pull through sites.

I visited Schoolcraft after reading the other reviews. I have 2 dogs that get dog aggressive when they see other dogs so I was looking forward to actually being able to bring them hiking with me. We had the place to ourselves and we had...More

We visiting the park an early spring and it was a little wet and saturated. The road into the park was good up until a sharp turn that proved to be pretty muddy and we almost got stuck. Something to keep in mind if you...More

We stopped here on our quest to complete all state park Hiking Club Trails. This one is a short hike under 2 miles and flat. The trail was well maintained. The trail circles the park along the Mississippi River. If you had a canoe there...More

Lots of bugs but few people at this desolate, primitive campground. Not too many shade sites. Water is on-site. Bathrooms. Little else. There is a decent boat landing. Lots of trails for skiing in the winter and birding. No host or office is manned on...More

Very nice little park, right on the Mississippi River. We were only one of four groups in the whole park. It has a nice boat landing. The camp sites were large enough to fit a small motor home. Nice hiking trails.
