Ann Lake Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Like most property converted to parks, this one has its roots in Minnesota’s timber industry. Once the timber was harvested, the lumber company sold the area to a group of Duluth businessmen—the Tettegouche Club—to be used as a fishing retreat. It changed hands a number of times until it became a park in 1979. Outflows of lava (along a rift line that stretches all the way to Kansas), layers of seabed sediment, and scouring by several glacial periods all helped create the park we enjoy today.
The rivers, waterfalls (including Lake Superior shoreline, Minnesota’s tallest), and rapids are indescribable, and, the hiking is some of the best in the region—what's not to like about tent camping here? Very little!"
