“Great 3 day stay as a base for our adventures in Voyageurs NP and Superior NF. ”

Overall Rating

This was a great first campsite for us as we embark on our National Parks adventure. Our plan was to use the campsite as a base to explore the surrounding area, which for us included a day trip to Voyageurs NP and a day of hiking around Superior NF. This campground is a remote, rustic option with fairly spacious sites, vault toilets, and a solar powered water pump. We arrived in late May and from what we could tell we were the only campers there. The downsides were the mosquitoes - they were everywhere and relentless. I’m not sure if they were just looking for the closest warm bodies or if the campground’s location right along a lake is a breeding ground but bring the bug spray if visiting in late May. There was also a lot of garbage within our fire ring and other campsites seemed to also have a small trash problem. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone looking to also explore the region, especially those with access to a boat, canoe or kayak as that is the popular activity both within and outside the campground. No cell service whatsoever for the both of us. The nearest town of Orr, MN, is about 15-20 miles away. I highly recommend visiting Voyageurs NP and nearby Superior NF has a couple of scenic attractions including Vermillion Gorge and Vermillion Falls. The LaCroix Ranger Station in Cook, MN, was very helpful with their suggestions of things to see and do in the area.
