Where the intrepid camper can explore historical marvels alongside natural wonders.
Dust off your boat, camping gear, and hiking shoes, because Duluth has it all. Bordering Lake Superior, Duluth sits as great gathering point for all things water sports, ice fishing, and both long and short trail hiking. Nearby Jay Cooke State Park, Superior Municipal Forest, Cloquet Valley, and Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest all have clear, well marked trail heads that lead to easy, clear paths, as well as others that go through more skilled terrain. Rustic camping is common throughout the region, with more well ammentied options—including a tiny house and off-the-grid homestead—located just north of Duluth. Those who fancy themselves bird watchers can set their gazes toward the migratory and resident birds that regularly fly through. Hawk Ridge and Hartley Nature center. During the winter months, Northern Lights can be seen (with ease) at low-light camping destinations. Come to Duluth for the serene peace and quiet, but stay for the picture-perfect views of the Auroras and birds above your head.
If paddling under starlit skies and waking up to serene lakeside views sound idyllic, consider camping near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. A journey here offers an unspoiled Boundary Waters camping experience with ample wildlife, fishing, and wilderness exploration.
