The Great Outdoors

When you’re camping at the Tettegouche Campground, you have direct access to the Tettegouche State Park, which sprawls across 9,346 acres along the shores of Lake Superior. It’s famed as being home to the highest waterfall in Minnesota, the 70-foot-tall High Falls, which cascades into the Baptism River. You can stretch your legs on the park’s 22 miles of hiking trails, which include part of the long-distance Superior Hiking Trail, or tackle the rock climbing cliffs of Shovel Point and Palisade Head. If you’re visiting during the winter months, there are also 12 miles of ski trails to explore, not to mention the Red Dot motorized trail that’s accessible to snowmobiles and ATVs. Anglers can try their luck at luring walleye and northern perch in Tettegouche State Park’s six inland lakes while history buffs can explore the heritage-listed buildings of Tettegouche Camp on Mic Mac Lake.Campsites at the Tettegouche Campground are also on the doorstep of the Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, which lies just 15 minutes’ drive to the south.

Browse the exhibits that are now on display at the lighthouse museum and its surrounding buildings or stroll along the picturesque trails that radiate from here.

It remains predominantly undeveloped, with large tracts of fir, cedar, spruce and northern hardwoods that provide habitat for Canadian lynx, red squirrels, moose, and black bears. Bird watchers should keep their eyes peeled for golden eagles, peregrine falcons, and American kestrels while several species of bats also inhabit the park.

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.
