Information on:

Jay Cooke State Park

780 Highway 210
218-384-4610

Trailblazers: this park is a must! Park trails link up to the Willard Munger State Trail at the north edge of the park; perfect for backpackers, bikers (both mountain and tour), hikers, horseback riders, and skiers.

Check out the wildflowers in the spring, and the vivid colors in the fall. Walk on the swinging suspension bridge high above the raging St. Louis River. Visit the historic cemetery and the gorge at Thomson Dam.

Awesome place! We took silver creek trail which is around 3.5 mild and took us 1:20 hours complete. It was just the sound of nature, wind, birds, water flow and us. Perfect place to take off of city life. It’s must visit if you’re around 1 or 2 hours from the park. The parking fee is 7$ which is steep compared to other state parks. They can reduce a bit down.

Wonderful park whether you're there for camping, a hiking day, or a quick stop to admire the falls. The swinging bridge over the falls is right by the parking lot and is handicapped accessible, dog friendly, and kid approved. The camping site is across HWY 210 and has spots for RVs and tents, electric hook ups, outhouses, and garbages. There is running water and real bathrooms by the main offices, but at the moment this is out of order due to damages to water main from bad storms this year. Highly recommended campsite and sightseeing site!

One of my favorite state parks! Abundant trails. The St Lois River is beautiful to see. The water main broke in spring 2018 and there is only porta potties until it gets fixed. Nice visitor center. The swinging bridge is cool.

AMAZING park! Hike the Carlton Trail for the best views of the St Louis river. There was a water main break in May 2018 so there are no working bathrooms there. Only porta potties until it gets fixed

Great place for nature, history, and hiking. It will be even better once the water is back in order. I particularly love the bridge over the St. Louis River!
