We stopped and toured the light house while soaking in a tour of fall colors. I thought the tour was great. I`ve always been interested in going to the top of a lighthouse to see how they work and the view; which was as cool as expected. They also had interpreters dressed to the period and one of the homes open to tour; also decorated to the 1920`s era to demonstrate how life was while this station was in operation. Very interesting and worth the tour fee.

As far as a campground goes, Split Rock has some pluses and minuses depending on what you're looking for. One plus is that it's right in the prime tourism spots being right next to the lighthouse, and only about 7 minutes from Gooseberry Falls. It also has some sites with incredible views such as 13, 18, 19, and 20. On the other hand sites like 1, 2, 3, 4, and 11 have a trail going right by your site and the view isn't that great. The main attraction to this park is the lighthouse which you literally can't see unless you pay the $8 admission, or see it from far away from a lookout spot miles away. I believe Split Rock was MN's first cart-in campground. It seems to have limited activities and facilities which may not interest family campers, but it should be appealing to campers looking for more of a scenic / hiking experience.

This was the best camp ground we stayed at. Large camp site, padded area for your tent, clean, has lock box for food, and awsome views. The camp sites are spaced apart enough so you are not on top of each other.
