Stayed in Two Island Lake Campground. We’ve been camping in the Superior National Forest in northeastern Minnesota for more than thirty years and still marvel at the broad range of recreation opportunities. The forest, totaling more than 3 million acres, is dense with pine, fir, spruce, birch, and poplar trees. It is home to numerous wildlife species including grouse, deer, moose, timber wolf, and black bear. We particularly enjoy traveling along the north shore of Lake Superior, visiting the state parks and small towns, especially Grand Marais. Here, Lake Superior resembles the ocean. The town and harbor bustle with tourist attractions and activities. Our destination on this trip was Two Island Lake located about 12 miles from Grand Marais (see map). The U.S. Forest Service campground has 38 mostly shaded sites Location Mapdivided into three gravel camp loops. Sites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are a number of nicely situated lakeside sites. As you can imagine, these sites are very popular and fill quickly. Your stay is limited to 14-days and we have found that our best chance to get a prime site is during mid-week. On several occasions, we have taken a less desirable site and then moved to a prime site several days later. All sites have fire rings, picnic tables, and tent pads. There are a number of back-in sites suitable for tents, travel trailers, fifthwheels, and motorhomes (we were using a pop-up camper). Excellent drinking water is available from a hand pump and the campground’s vault toilets are well maintained and clean. The cost was $7.00 per night (summer 1998). There is a boat launching ramp (motors are allowed) and the cool clear waters of the lake contain smallmouth bass, northern pike, and walleyes. There are a number of islands in the lake and moose frequent several of the shallow bays. Firewood for campfires may be collected from dead and down wood without a permit. There are numerous logging roads in the area and finding firewood is an easy task.

Camped in Fall Lake Campground, located in the Superior National Forest about ten miles east of Ely, Minnesota on the edge of the Canoe Area Wilderness. The Superior National Forest, totaling more than 3 million acres, is dense with pine, fir, spruce, birch, and poplar trees. It is home to numerous wildlife species including grouse, deer, moose, timber wolf, and black bear. The campground is situated in a mixed stand of aspen, birch, spruce, and pine. It has excellent paved interior roads and gravel camp spurs. There are a number of sites (15-20) that have 20/30 amp electrical hookups. Our cost was $7.00 per night (10-99). One attraction you must not miss is the International Wolf Center in Ely. They offer educational presentations, general tours and videos on all aspects of wolf life. They also have numerous displays that are interesting and well done.
