With Temperance River on one side and Lake Superior on another, Temperance River State Park's Lower Campground is halfway to becoming an island. Hang out on the more sparsely populated side of the campgrounds, where you'll be able to get a little privacy from your neighbor living the next site down. Hike to Hidden Falls, or shred some snow come winter. With all the beautiful views and rock climbing to boot, this place is a natural wonder!

Went late fall camping here and it was a great time. There was only one other group in our campground, so we had most everything to ourselves. The main office was closed due to the late season, so if you needed anything you needed to call down to the nearby Tettegouche office.

Our campsite was right next to several trails leading straight down to the lake & river, which we were only separated from by a tree-filled hillside, listening to the waves crash as we fell asleep.

Lots of good hiking and exploring to do within the park itself (the Superior Hiking Trail goes right through the park), and many more spots to check out along the shore nearby, as well.

The hiking is spectacular, the campground is on Lake Superior, lovely but too close to Hwy 61-noisy.

Hike the west side of the river, less people and awesome - right on the river.
