This beautiful park is not far from the Boundary Waters, and its scenery is similar, with enormous stands of trees and pristine lakes. Fishing for walleye, bass, crappie, and trout is good here. Wildlife sightings are frequent, including eagles, wolves, moose, and black bears. There are 17 miles of hiking trails, some of which connect with the Taconite State Trail, a 145-mile trail from Ely to Grand Rapids, for great biking and hiking in the summer and cross- country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. There are regular naturalist programs during the warm months. The campsites are generously spaced and set into heavily wooded areas for a good amount of privacy. Pets are allowed.
