Tettegouche State Park Professional Review and Guide
"A rugged full day of hiking among the alpine-like lakes and their surrounding hills, with overlooks of the park lakes and Lake Superior. More than a dozen overlooks of Lake Superior and interior lakes, Shovel Point, which has at least half a dozen overlooks itself, and Baptism High Falls. Tettegouche State Park presents a little of everything the North Shore has to offer. The park has miles of rugged trails, high waterfalls, and stunning cliffs along the lake front.
In the late nineteenth century the park was the center of a logging operation that had its main base along the shores of Micmac Lake. This operation lasted only a few decades, until the tall pines were cut down. Next, a Duluth business club bought the land for a retreat—exactly the kind one imagines executives have far off in the woods— and named the place Tettegouche. The name comes from an old French-Canadian phrase meaning “meeting place.” Today, the park offers a remote retreat, open to the public."
