Have you ever wanted to rent an RV and just go off the grid for a while? Maybe just get away to experience nature and have a quiet space all to yourself? Fortunately, you won’t need to go all the way to the wilds of Alaska to do it. Northern Minnesota is one of the least populated and least developed areas in the country, and there are some great RV parks to visit while you’re there.
The Cascade River Campground is one such place, located in the Cascade River State Park. It’s about two hours' drive northeast of Duluth on Highway 61, and a 90-minute drive southwest of Ontario’s Thunder Bay. The Cascade River flows through the park in a torrent - tumbling down rocky cliffs and cutting a canyon as it makes its way towards Lake Superior. It’s a beautiful sight and one that doesn’t see too many visitors at any time of year.
The campsites at Cascade River State Park offer electrical hookups, and there are also drinking water, a dump station, and flush toilets available during the warmer months. There are also showers, so you can clean up after muddy adventures on the nearby trails. Firewood and ice can be purchased from the camp office, but if you need any groceries or supplies while you’re here, the best option is to drive to Lutsen, several miles down the road. Visitors to this part of Minnesota rarely come for the urban amenities, though; Cascade River Campground camping is all about enjoying what nature has to offer.
The majority of attractions near Cascade Creek Campground are going to be natural ones – several state parks, trails galore, and, of course, Lake Superior itself. If you’re searching for a nice day hike when you rent a camper near Cascade River Campground, one of the best is the Pincushion Mountain Trail near Grand Marais. It’s just outside the town and involves a nine-mile out-and-back hike; the summit overlook has spectacular views of Lake Superior.
The 310-mile-long Superior Hiking Trails also runs straight through the park and has been deemed one of the best hikes in America. With fantastic views of the Sawtooth Mountains, several impressive waterfalls, and plenty of trailheads to access the main route, it’s easy to see why. Despite its remote location, the trail has excellent signage, so it’s almost impossible to get lost while hiking it.
From the border town of Grand Portage, adjacent to Grand Portage National Monument, you can hop on a ferry to Isle Royale National Park, one of the Lower 48’s least visited national parks. Its location in the middle of Lake Superior, which is only accessible by two public ferries, and its prohibition against motorized vehicles keeps the crowds down. There are loads of day hikes to enjoy off the park’s main trail that runs down the center of the island, and paddlers will be overjoyed with the number of tiny coves to explore along its shore. However, Lake Superior was also the site of many shipwrecks in the pre-industrial age and intrepid scuba divers certified in cold, freshwater diving could visit several of them.
Urban amenities are not easy to find when you book an RV in Cook County, Minnesota, with Grand Marais being the closest option. As the hub of activity in this northern corner of the state, it does have a lot to offer, like a microbrewery, a couple of gas stations, and a dozen or so restaurants serving everything from Mexican to wood-fired pizza to frozen custards. The shopping is relatively low key, but the Lake Superior Trading Post is a one-stop-shop for everything you could need for camping plus local souvenirs.
Grand Marais has a lovely art scene too, with many artists seeking the solitude in Minnesota’s far north to spur their creativity. The Grand Marais Art Colony even has classes and events that are open to the public, where lay artists can work on their technique and be inspired by each other. Those searching for a unique memento of their time camping at Cascade River Campground might want to browse through some of the galleries in Grand Marais’s downtown; there’s a variety of affordable pieces from local artists.
If you’re looking for a wonderful spot to watch the sunset over Lake Superior, there’s no better place than the Grand Marais Lighthouse on the Artist’s Point peninsula. It doesn’t look much like the lighthouses of New England; instead, it has a unique Great Lakes style. A small concrete walkway leads out to the lighthouse from an old Coast Guard station to overlook the water and the forest on the bay’s opposing shore.
