Tough hike in to the backpack site. But once we arrive we had a beautiful little lake all to ourselves. Didn't pass another person in the 1.5 mile hike in. Quiet, secluded, and relaxing. Site had some log benches and a table if I remember correctly as well as a bear box.

  • sunset on the private like my campsite was on
  • morning views from the private lake the site was on
  • not a very big lake but it was so serene to have this by the site

Boundary waters hike-in experience

If you like primitive wilderness camping but want to be only a short backpack hike away from your car, this campsite is for you! There are actually two campsites at this location, offset from each other on the lakeshore but close enough for a group to spread out into. This is a backcountry camping…

Fantastic in Fall!

This is our second time camping here, the first time being in June a few years ago. Fall camping is a different ballgame! The colors are beautiful, the campground is quieter (at least during the week) and this particular campground is more like a state park than the other more rustic campgrounds…

Harriet Lake

Beautiful spot with plenty of well spaced out sites that can accommodate tents, vans, or RVs . During the thick of summer there still weren't many people there (we went July 31). It is a bit of an inconvenience to get to if you're looking to do things on Lake Superior coast, but even considering…

Beautiful land with so much to offer!

I was so impressed by the trails and the lake-it felt very well maintained and also quite private. I can’t wait to stay again!

Beautiful land!

The trails were so beautiful and it felt like there were options to explore everywhere. Firewood was about $7/bundle and restrooms were clean. I want to go back and try to fish next time! There’s individual docks for fishing!

  • beautiful private areas to sit by the water
  • the lake was down but crystal clear
  • my tent site was very level

Great state park near Ely/BWCA

We have enjoyed staying here. Minnesota does a nice job with their state parks. The campsites are varied in types, sizes and layouts. Ours works great for our 26’ travel trailer and truck, and includes electrical. Main restroom has showers. Nice canoeing lake adjacent to the campground. The…

Great find near Ely, MN

We wanted to visit the North American Bear Center so looked for nearby camping. The South Kawishiwi campground is a lovely forest service campground with 30 amp electric in many of its large sites. There are spotless vault toilets, a dumpster, aluminum recycling and a very friendly camp host. …

Good times.

This is a popular spot and it was pretty noisy. The camp host were great. I didn’t have reservations so I had to move around a lot because I wanted to stay for a few days. There’s lots of things to do And the water is just beautiful. Great places to hike around.

Nice tucked away campground

Nice national forest campground that seems well run, has sites with decent privacy and nice bathrooms.

Sites vary a lot in size and some are quite unlevel so luck of the draw on whether your rig can fit, but worth trying.

I'd you have a Class B, B+, or small C, try to snag Site 42. It's around…

  • Site 42 is large but has a relatively small parking area
  • Site 42 is all by itself
  • Table and fire are up a small hill at site 42 but the parking area is quite level

Great for group camping

Large open fields and large spots in pine groves good for group camping. RV and tents, it’s rustic! There’s a boat dock, that’s usually busy but good for swimming too if you don’t mind the large leeches.

Beautiful State Park

This was a wonderful stay. Very family friendly with a lot to do! There are modern facilities in the drive in campground, nothing fancy but they got the job done. We stayed mid-week and the park was busy but not overly full. You can rent kayaks, canoes, etc. at the park office of a decent price.…

Peaceful spot to rest

This campground is tucked into the Superior National Forest but off of a main road. Access is easy enough for most rigs other than maybe very large ones.

There are a little over a dozen campsites here with 4 on their own loop in an ATV camping area.

The sites vary in size and access due to…
