Keweenaw Waters Resort, found in Houghton (Michigan), has finally been given the green light to begin construction on its campground.
The park’s owner, Bradway Enterprises, told a local report that the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy as well as the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ approval is good news despite construction being delayed until next year.
“This summer, however, we’ll be building some of the cabins. They’re used in conjunction with the campground, but they’re available year-round, where the campsite is seasonal. So they’ll operate like a short-term rental, ” Derek Bradway, owner of Bradway Enterprises, said.
Once complete, the campground sitting on 25 acres of land will have 79 modern full hookup campsites with 20, 30, and 50-amp power, water, and sewer hookups.
There will also be a fire ring, table, and a privacy screen made up of native trees and lattice fencing.
Keweenaw Waters Resort is located across from Coles Creek, within Houghton’s city limits, giving easy access to water, sewer, and utilities.
“At some point in time, we’d like to—if possible—connect to the city of Houghton’s trail network. Which would then interconnect Keweenaw Waters resort all the way to the Nara Nature Park,” Bradway said.
The campground hopes to positively affect the local economy and recreation opportunities for tourists and residents.
