Nestled in a forest on the western high point of Duluth, Minnesota, Spirit Mountain Campground offers walk-in tenting as well as 73 campsites equipped with fire pits, picnic tables, and electricity. Easy access to our award-winning Mountain Bike Trails, our Adventure Park and Superior Hiking Trail.
Thirty-nine sites have water hook-ups, and two shower buildings offer 24-hour convenience.
Spirit Mountain overlooks majestic Lake Superior and the St. Louis Bay. Natural beauty abounds in the area– you can quickly and easily access water, hiking and biking trails and much more. The trailhead for the Superior Hiking Trail is within walking distance of the Campground. And near the Campground, there is an overlook area of Lake Superior, the bay, the St. Louis River, and the Aerial Lift Bridge.
Stopped in to check this out everyone said you have to go and do alpine slide as well. We didnt have the time to that day but plan on coming back in fall to do that!!! Park was nice and clean and staff was very friendly. Gave us great ideas for places to check out and great food spots in town too!!! And they are open in winter for sking and snowboarding as well!!
Stayed here over the 4th of July, busy but good campground! Clean bathrooms and close to Duluth. Lots of fun things to do
We stayed at Spirit Mountain in September of 2016. We went up there to do the Heck of the North Gravel ride on a Saturday and then ride Spirit on Sunday. The campground was beautiful and full of amenities. They had nice large camping pads and decent restroom facilities. The best part was being able to bike down the trails right from the campground! The trees were just starting to turn so it was beautiful!
We stay here when we want to go to Duluth, but don't want a hotel. It is a large campground, with sites of all types and sizes. Many sites are more private than others.
Spirit Mountain Ski has many activities, right across the street. There are discounts for campers. Activities (summer) include alpine slide, zip line, and chair lift (for views of the harbor and Duluth below).
The camprgounds best features include immediate access to the Superior Hiking Trail, and an awesome mountain bike course/trail system. I prefer the walk-in sites, just for more woods. But site J was not private, and was not flat. Tent pads are small. Still, great time, and good night campfires!!! Bring your mountain bike!
This is a unique commercial camping experience. I wouldn't normally rank a commercial campground this high, but the activities and things to offer at Spirit Mountain are unique.
The campground is average. It is packed full on the weekends and is pretty windy to the point you might get a little lost or confused when trying to find your campsite. It has amenities and is reasonably clean for the large crowd.
What makes this place great is the numerous downhill bike trails with varying degrees of difficulty. When you get to the bottom ride the ski lift back to the top. It looks like an amazing experience if you are into mountain biking.
There are other activities: miniature golf, a zip line, and alpine coaster, etc. This is a fun weekend for everyone, but bring your pocket book because it's not free.
I would recommend visiting this park and potentially camping with the hopes of visiting Duluth one of the nights you are there!
This is a good car camping campground with a few walk in sites that allows you to get away from the road but close enough to get to the amenities. Very close to Duluth so you can easily get to all the sites.
