Welcome to the Dead River Storage Basin Dead River Campers, Inc. was created in the mid-1990s to negotiate in the purchase of land around the Dead River Hoist Basin. The Dead River Basin is located in the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) of Michigan. It spans across Negaunee, Ishpeming, and Champion Townships of Marquette County. There are 397 shareholders that belong to Dead River Campers. The goal of our website is to provide our shareholders with a quick and convenient access to a variety of resources and information.
