Savanna Portage State Park

55626 Lake Place

Time slips by when you visit this park of the north. Walk the Savanna Portage Trail, a historic trail traveled by fur traders, Dakota and Ojibwe Indians, and explorers more than 200 years ago. Savanna Portage State Park has 15,818 acres of rolling hills, lakes, and bogs. The Continental Divide marks the great division of water: water to the west flows into the Mississippi River; water to the east runs into Lake Superior. Visitors can hike the Continental Divide Trail and see forested vistas. During the summer, visitors enjoy swimming at Loon Lake. Bike enthusiasts can pedal on roads, or on dirt trails designated for mountain bikes. With four fishing lakes and a river, its common for anglers to catch panfish, trout and bass. Come winter, this park offers snowmobilers approximately 32 miles of trails to explore. This park is a favorite among cross-country skiers too, with 14 miles of trails, and an additional 6.4 miles available at Remote Solitude, 1 mile south of the park.

A really nice park in the middle of nowhere. We stayed 2 nights in the campground and I really liked it. Nice sized spaces, not too close together, plenty of shade and seclusion. The bathrooms and shower area In the campground were very nice as well. We would have done more hiking but the bugs we're off the charts. Even with bug spray it wasn't enough. Be prepared for that. They weren't bad at the campgrounds or by the water. But the trails we're unbearable.

Really well maintained park. We stayed at the group camp site and it wad perfect! Maybe solid heave been small for 30, but it was quiet and remote and right on the lake! Also the bathrooms were clean and not smelly which is a bug deal.

Backpack camping. Campsite was nice. Bugs were terrible, but weren't too bad once fire going. Very private. Lots of trails and 4 lakes too choose from with kayak and boat rentals which is nice, and one lake with a beach.

Great state park to see and hear a lot of wildlife, great hiking trails and we rented kayaks for the entire day for only $25 bucks. We were unable to finish the hikes because the mosquitoes and ticks were insane! Blood sucking bug apocalypse! Prepare to be eaten ALIVE! Mwah ha ha! It is that time of year (memorial weekend). I’d totally go back for the nice camp sites, quiet campers, trails, lakes and the bog was so cool!

Great place. Tons of wildlife on every lake, including the most friendly loons I've ever seen.
