Silver Bay - Tettegouche State Park

5702 Highway 61

Come to Tettegouche for a great sense of the North Shore: the spectacular overlooks at Shovel Point; rocky, steep cliffs and inland bluffs; the cascading 60 ft. High Falls of the Baptism River; and the historic Tettegouche Camp where visitors can stay the night.

This is a hiker's paradise with miles of trails that overlook the Sawtooth Mountains and wind down to inland lakes accessible only by foot.

Book a cabin in the group camp and enjoy a serene hideaway on MicMac Lake. Really a wonderful experience that weeds out the worst kind of campers because it takes a bit more dedication to hike in with your gear. However, the cabins and bath house are well-maintained, there is firewood, fishing gear, and canoes on site for use, and the system of trails in that area of the park is fantastic. We have hiked the paths closer to the shoreline too, and love everything about this beautiful pocket of Minnesota.

It was beautiful! Absolutely loved it. Had fun the entire time and the campsites had the perfect amount of privacy. The waterfalls were gorgeous! The bathrooms and showers at the sanitary station were clean and comfortable. The one and only thing I didn't like was the firewood. It cost 6$ a bundle and we burned 2 bundles in about an hour. The quality of the wood burned SO fast we spent so much money just on wood. Other then that it was an amazing trip!

A really nice park to visit any time of year. My favorite trail is shovel point, which is convenient because you can access it from permit free parking at the entrance. It has a huge visitor's center now, if you are into that sort of thing. Keep an eye out for wolves on the trails in the winter.

This is by far one of our favorite spots to enjoy the outdoors! So many things to do and see here, where to start? Our normal hike takes us past the High Falls, down to the Two-Step falls in a loop past the Cascades, and back up the road to the parking area. Lots of stairs here if you want to see any of the falls up close. Beautiful any time of year. We splash at the base of the water falls with our pup. Shovel point and the shore line are both worth seeing on the other side, especially if you like to skip rocks and hunt for agates, sea glass, and other pretty treasures. If you go by the cabins and beyond, the huge stone fire place on top of the "mountain" and the view from up there are both worth seeing. The shore line of Lake Superior on that side is quite different than the rest of the park. On a clear day, you can see Split Rock Light House. Always see wildlife here. Deer, wolves, coyotes, eagles, beaver, rabbits, grouse, even a little mouse one winter. Fishing for salmon and trout. This place truly is amazing! Insect repellent is a must. Definitely check for ticks. Not worse here than anywhere else in the area- just part of the North Woods.

We love stopping here for a rest. Beautiful scenery and walking trails. Clean restrooms. I recommend it highly.
