Silver Bay, Minnesota 55614
Established in 1979 along Minnesota's Northshore, Tettegouche State Park contains a unique combination of natural features: rugged semi-mountainous terrain, inland lakes, cascading rivers, waterfalls, undisturbed nothern hardwood forest, and the Lake Superior shoreline. There are also rustic log buildings dating back to the final days of the logging era.
In 1898 the Alger-Smith Lumber Company began cutting the pine forests of northeastern Minnesota. In 1910, after removing most of the white and Norway pine, the Alger-Smith Company sold the surrounding acreage and logging camp to a group of businessmen from Duluth called the "Tettegouche Club" which was used as a fishing camp and retreat. Years later legislation was enacted establishing Tettegouche as a Minnesota state park on June 29, 1979.
Tettegouche has more than 40 species of mammals. Most commonly seen are the snowshoe hare, beaver, red squirrel, and the white-tailed deer. Less common are black bear, moose, red fox, and river otter. Occasionally seen are northern flying squirrel, fisher pine marten, coyote, and even timber wolves. Northeastern Minnesota is one of the best areas in the nation to find rare birds. At Tettegouche, 140 species of birds have been identified. One-half of the park's forest is covered by apsen-birch trees, followed by sugar maple-yellow birch and cedar wetlands.
