The Ojibwa Recreation Area includes two unique campground settings, Sandy Point Lighthouse, pow-wow grounds, a marina, pump station for RVs, and swimming. When you enter the Ojibwa Recreation Area you enter a world of mature red pines and the main campground which is set in the red pines. Electrical hookups and running water is available within this campground. 40 different sites are available and the Recreation Area is working to develop more sites. These sites have fire pits and access to showers and toilet facilities. The sites are available on a first come, first serve basis and no registration is needed. The Park Ranger will come to your site. Cost is $8.00 overnight, $45 weekly, and $185 monthly for all the sites.
8 more sites are located by the marina for everyone but there is only 1 electrical hookup at this location.
The Marina has 30 boat slips which rent for the season by $10 per foot or $8 overnight parking. The boat launch has a $2 fee for one time launching or $20 per season. Lighted buoys for channel markers into Lake Superior have been put into place starting in 2004. Baraga Village Marina immediately across a short inlet has a gas pump for boaters.
The Recreation Area also has two pavilions which can be rented for $20 per use and $10 for clean up.
At the entrance to the campgrounds is the dump station for RVs with a fee of $8 per dump or $20 per year.
