The Great Outdoors

A highlight of RV camping at the Grand Marais RV Park & Campground is its accessibility to the walking trails of Sweethearts' Bluff Nature Area and the Gitchi-Gami Bike Trail. A short drive west will see you at the Cascade River State Park, which encompasses a rugged and rocky gorge along its namesake river. If you want to stretch your legs, the park is connected along the Superior Hiking Trail, a 310-mile path that follows the ridgeline overlooking Lake Superior.Drive in the other direction from the Grand Marais RV Park & Campground to spend a day at Judge C.R. Magney State Park, which is named after the former mayor of Duluth and a justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court. It’s famed for an unusual waterfall and rock formation along the Brule River that can be accessed along a challenging one-mile walk that includes almost 200 stairs. The Brule River is also renowned for its fishing opportunities, with rainbow trout regularly stocked here while brook trout, chinook salmon, and pink salmon are also for the taking. If you’re a kayaker, the Brule River is a popular destination for experienced paddlers, with a number of stretches where you need to portage.Grand Marais campers are also on the doorstep of the Superior National Forest, which comprises nearly four million acres of woodlands and water. It’s home to the Sawtooth Mountains and Minnesota’s highest point, Eagle Mountain, as well as a variety of wildlife that includes white-tailed deer, moose, black bears, and gray wolves. Among the Superior National Forest’s highlights is the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area, which consists of several interconnected waterways and historic portages once used by the First Nations people, European explorers, and fur traders.

Exploring the City

The campsites at the Grand Marais RV Park & Campground are within walking distance of downtown Grand Marais where you’ll find supermarkets for stocking up on grocery supplies. There are also gas stations here if you need to fill up your motorhome rental and a good selection of cafes, restaurants, and breweries if you want to dine out.While you’re in Grand Marais, don’t miss a visit to the Cook County Historical Museum, which occupies a 19th-century lighthouse keeper’s residence. It’s now listed on the National Register of Historic Places and houses a range of artifacts and old photographs detailing the role of the Civilian Conservation Corps in the county and the life of William Colville, a Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. A short walk from the Cook County Historical Museum is the Johnson Heritage Post Art Gallery, where rotating exhibitions of local and regional artists are displayed, as well as a permanent collection of works by early 20th-century artist Anna C. Johnson.A 40-minute drive east of Grand Marais is Grand Portage, which lies at the northeastern tip of Minnesota near the border with Canada. It’s home to the Grand Portage National Monument that preserves the cultural heritage of the Anishinaabeg Ojibwe people and a former hub of fur trade activity of French-Canadian voyageurs. Follow the eight-mile Grand Portage Footpath as it passes a series of waterfalls and rapids along the banks of the Pigeon River before it flows in Lake Superior. The trail eventually switchbacks up Mount Rose, which affords magnificent views across the historic depot, sprawling meadows, and the sparkling waters of Grand Portage Bay.Whether you want to discover the storied past of Lake Superior or explore its scenic landscapes, book an RV in Cook County and start planning your camping trip in northern Minnesota.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
