Schoolcraft State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Named for Henry Rowe Schoolcraft, who camped in the area while searching for the Mississippi headwaters (aided by the Anishinabe), this is a peaceful park ideal for canoeing and hiking, with a great variety of birds and wildlife to watch. There’s a boat ramp to the Mississippi and spectacular hiking trails winding through stands of old- growth pines, some nearly 300 years old. Campsites are far enough apart to allow considerable privacy. Pets are allowed.
Minnesota may be best known for its northeast corner along Lake Superior, and certainly that’s a strikingly beautiful place, but the northwest part of the state, while very different in terrain and feel, has great beauty as well. Even better, it has excellent outdoor recreational opportunities."
