Description

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.

Walks along Lake Superior as the sun sets is all I have to say.

Baptism River campground has moderate tree coverage and privacy. It's a relatively small campground. The cart-in sites are nice and private and some offer a very nice view. It is a bit of a hike since you park on one side of Hwy 61 and have to go under the bridge to the other side. Site E is the most incredible site I've ever seen. Just behind the site you can walk to a rock cliff ledge and have a breathtaking view of Lake Superior.

A beautiful park and campground that is not as nice as it was before they plowed out many of the sites to accommodate RVs. That has really hurt the character of this park.

The group camp sites don't have much coverage. You're quite exposed. The hiking is nice.

  Great campground

Stayed here for 2 nights in the fall. For being weeknights, the campground was still bustling with activity, so book your site early if you want to stay during the Fall colors. The hiking paths were great. The entrance and rest area on the park are under construction, so there was a temporary entrance for us. Hopefully by next year it will be better. So keep an eye out for changes. Will definitely be back next year!

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Love the boardwalk hike to shovel point. Half or more of the sites are now electric. The new check in lodge is beautiful and has WiFi if needed.
