Union River " Big Bear" Campground is located 2 miles west of Silver City, MI, just past the entrance sign to the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.   Watch for the big carved bear on the left hand side of the road.


The Union River Big Bear Campground has 45 quiet, grassy, shady, spacious sites surrounded by forest.  Every site is level with easy access, several are drive-thru.  Power to all sites is 30 amp.  There is a clean, modern indoor restroom and shower building for your convenience.   Every site is complete with a picnic table and fire ring.


Marvel at the awesome scenery of Lake Superior and the Porcupine Mountains!  Walk or drive 1/8 mile to the state park’s visitor center for maps, videos and information on the 90 miles of walking, hiking, and backpacking trails, towering cliffs, amazing waterfalls, and numerous small lakes and streams located throughout the park.

The soft, sandy beach of Lake Superior is within walking distance of the campground for your swimming, picnicking, sunbathing and beachcombing enjoyment.  The churning waves of the lake bring deposits of colorful agates and rocks, gnarled driftwood, and other intriguing treasures!  Enjoy the stunning sky colors as the sun rises and sets over the deep blue waters of Lake Superior.

Union River ‘Big Bear’ Campground is a relaxing stop along your journey, the entire family will enjoy the calming sights and sounds of nature as you end your day with a colorful sunset and warm crackling campfire.
