Officials say the north side of the park's campground will be closed May 1 with reopening scheduled for June 28. The south side campground closure will start July 15 and continue through the end of the camping season.

The 56-acre park is along the Keweenaw Bay shoreline, northwest of Marquette.

Other renovations include camper pads, more pull-through sites and the addition of 14 full-hookup sites offering 50-amp service, plus water and sewer. Improvements also will be made to the park's sewage wet well and pumping station.

The $1.2 million construction project is expected to be completed by Nov. 1.
