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

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
