||One of the most enjoyable communities to visit in Minnesota is Grand Marais. This Lake Superior harbor town is the gateway to the world famous Gunflint Trail and a summer haven for those seeking a north woods setting. A very convenient place to camp is the Grand Marais RV Park Campground which is located on the harbor, just off U.S. Highway 61, and only a few short blocks from the center of town. Our intent was to use the facility as a base for sightseeing along this area of the North Shore of Lake Superior.
The 300 plus unit campground offers a wide variety of campsites ranging from tent only to those with full hookups including cable television. Other facilities include public telephone (with modem hookup) ice, firewood, a camp store, and modern showers and flush toilets. The cost for our site including electricity and water was $24.00 (10-99). The facility also offers daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal rates. There are numerous shops and restaurants within a few blocks as well as a multitude of recreational activities such as golf, fishing, hunting, hiking, tennis, canoeing, sailing, sightseeing, or just plain relaxing. This area is truly worth the visit.
If you want a friendly place to camp that offers a wide range of services and is close to some of the most beautiful scenery in northern Minnesota, campers will find this park to their liking. |
