Camping near Duluth / Lake Superior

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm new to the state and am looking for a good place to camp on fairly short notice (so, the state parks in the area are out). We have a free weekend and I'd like to head north.

We like to fish and hike. Dogs would have to be allowed. No need for hookups (we're just tenting) but modern bathrooms / showers would be nice. Finally, we prefer cart-in like seclusion over high density campgrounds.

Has anyone tried Indian Point, Gunflint Pines, or Lamb's resort?

Thanks!

The seclusion and modern facilities combo will be hard to come by. If it's seclusion, try a state forest campground. Modern facilities, there's a couple campgrounds up the scenic drive, a couple in West Duluth and a couple outside of Superior. I have not stayed at any of the ones you listed, but I'm sure someone here has.

Have a great time!

Right, you won't find seclusion when theres showers near by. The USFS campgrounds have sites that are spaced far enough apart that your not on top one another. They have running water too, you just have to run and get it. grin.gif

      Seen a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
