Eckbeck Campground, next to the Baptism River (which is home to the tallest waterfall that falls entirely within state lines) is one downright rad place to spend some time hanging with nature. Nearby Lake Superior and Tettegouche State Park see most of the action in the area, making this primitive campground the ideal place to head to get away from the masses. Plus, the facilities aren’t as developed here, so that rustic vibe we all love is basically a given.

No reservations. We have camped here twice and haven't had a problem finding a spot. This year we'll be going over Labor Day weekend so we'll see how full it will be. If it's full, we plan to check out the Finland Campground just a few miles from this one.

Lovely for one night but have to drive to access to hiking trails. Awesome, sweet cafe in Finland, 'Our Placee' they treat you like family.

Eckbeck is one of our "go to" campgrounds on the north shore. There are no reservations. You pay via an envelope with cash, check, or card. On the weekends it can fill up in the summer. If Eckbeck is full there's another state forest campground "Finland Campground" just around the corner which is also a nice place to stay. There is an artesian well here. There are pit toilets and no showers. It's a great central location for Tettagouche state park and the Superior Hiking Trail.

Just behind this site is a creek. The kids love to catch crawfish and splash around. Eckbeck has large sites that are set in the woods.
