Great camping spot! We enjoyed the location and how private the camp site was. Just remember to bring your bug spray 😊

We found the place easily; off the beaten path and still fairly close to Grand Marais and less than 20 minutes to Devils Kettle trail head. The site was clean and felt private with plenty of room for our 16 for travel trailer. Would gladly stay again!

Grand Marais Camping Get-A-Way
Okay, but….
It was a perfect solution for us since we needed a place to camp and all the surrounding State Parks and campgrounds were full. The pile of construction material under a tarp sort of distracted from the otherwise beautiful spot. Besides that, we LOVED being so close to the Superior Lake Hiking Trail and just a hop and a skip from Grand Marais.

Grand Marais Camping Get-A-Way
I was looking for a quiet primitive campsite on the upper end of the North Shore. The site is about 2.5 miles to Highway 61, 6.5 miles to Grand Marais, 40 miles from Grand Portage State Park and 2 miles from the Gunflint Trail so the location was perfect for the area I wanted to explore. Occasionally a vehicle would drive by on the road but other than that the site was quiet and all I could hear were the sounds of nature. Water is available for purchase at stores in Grand Marais. I filled my 5 gallon water jug at the Cook County Coop for $0.39 per gallon when I bought my groceries but there are 2 other grocery stores in Grand Marais. There is also a YMCA in Grand Marais that you can purchase a day pass if you want to take a shower. I would definitely camp here again if I go back to the area.
