When you initially enter the Ojibwa Recreation Area, you enter a world of mature red pines and the main campground set in the red pines. The Ojibwa Recreation Area includes two unique campground settings, the Red Pines Campground and the Lakeside Campground. Additionally, it has the Sandy Point Lighthouse, pow-wow grounds, a marina, pump station for RVs, and swimming areas.
Electrical hookups and running water are available within this campground. Forty different sites are available for public camping, and the Recreation Area is working to develop more camping 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. See camping fees and other service fees listed on their official site as all the rates change yearly. At the campground entrance is the dump station for RVs with a price per dump or year.
Two significant annual events take place that the Ojibwa Recreation area. The first is the annual Kids’ Fishing Derby held at the end of June and put on by the KBIC Tribal Natural Resources at the Sand Point Pond. Hundreds of young children participate in this fun event, which is open to the public.
The second is the annual Keweenaw Bay Maawanji-iding or Pow-wow every summer in July. Tribal members from many different Ojibwa reservations come together to celebrate and to visit old friends.
The Pow-wow always honors all military veterans. The Pow-wow is one of the highlight community activities of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community. The event is also open to the public though there is a small cost for entrance to the Pow-wow.
The Marina has 30 boat slips that rent for the season or overnight parking. The boat launch has a fee for one-time launching or 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 and eight more boat slips. At the Ojibwa Marina, there is only one electrical hookup for boats.
The Recreation Area also rents two pavilions as well.
The campground fees are for tents and RVs and can be for a day, week, or season pass. Prices vary for Tribal Members and the General Public.
The Ojibwa Recreation Center is located just north of the town of Baraga on US-41. The Red Pines Campground is located within walking distance of Lake Superior, and both the Sandy Point Lighthouse and Marina campgrounds are located right on Lake Superior. The Sandy Point Lighthouse campground has a most beautiful sandy near the shore for swimming.
