Closed Effective September 7, 2010, until May 2011

The Little Beaver Lake Campground and its access road in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore will be closed to all traffic and campers beginning Tuesday, September 7, 2010, for reconstruction of the access road. 

The road will be realigned to alleviate safety concerns along curves and steep embankments.  

The work will be completed by late fall of 2010 so that the campground and road can re-open as scheduled in May 2011.  

"We regret this inconvenience, and encourage autumn campers to plan their stay at another area campground," said Chris Case, Lakeshore Chief of Maintenance. "Hurricane River and Twelvemile Beach Campgrounds will continue to be open until November 1, although 3.4 miles of Alger County Road H-58 remain closed between the campgrounds."

"In addition, several Michigan State Forest campgrounds are located nearby and offer camping experience similar to Little Beaver Lake," Case added. 

For further information, please contact the Interagency Visitor Center at 906-387-3700.
