Information on:

McGregor - 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.

OMG the FLIES!!!!!! Savanna Portage the horror show. It was like something out of a Hitchcock movie. Upon entry of the park it sounded as if my car was being pelted by pebbles. Nope those are flies. You drive down the long dusty road and in your rear view mirror all you can see is a fly cloud.... and its following you... no joke. Try setting up your tent in that. Good luck brother if you make it out alive. I pray you brought a camper or RV... beceuse you will never want to step outside of it. Mmm how about breakfast...? Watch the swarm fall upon everything you are cooking... flies in my raw bacon why yes please!!! Oh and i forgot to mention.... 3 different types of flies.. plus a truckload of mosquitoes, enjoy!!! No amount of deet will save you. I've been camping all my life, never seen anything this bad. Expect to be covered in bites from head to toe... almost looks like you have chicken pox. The sound of swarming flies will haunt you... no escaping the hum of that many wings. The only way we got a moment of relaxation was driving into town and hiding in the local restaurant for a few hours. We couldnt take it any longer, cut our trip short, went home. BEWARE!!!!!

Great State Park! Backpack site K was a wonderful site. Fishing, hiking, kid friendly. Note: raccoons every night- pack food in animal proof containers/hang food. Don't forget the big spray! We will defiantly return.

Beautiful fall colors, nice diverse hiking trails tho a little soggy with all the rain. Variety of lakes within the park. Camping options. Beautiful view of Wolf Lake from the continental divide overlook.
