Hikers and backpackers, Jay Cooke State Park Summer Campground is a great place to set up camp for the night! Many trails in the park link to the renowned Willard Munger State Trail, accessible whether you’re traveling by boot, mountain bike, horse, or even skis! Head across the swinging suspension bridge above the roaring St. Louis River, and stop by historic landmarks like the old cemetery. Pretty great place for a getaway!

This state park is beautiful with the roaring St. Louis river...the campgrounds are pretty wooded and suggest some bug spray! But for being so close to Duluth, it sure seems pretty secluded still! Great family camping!

River Inn Campground is often times really noisy, so if you're looking for a more secluded experience, look for a backcountry site. They are only 1/4 mile away!
