5702 MN-61 , Silver Bay, MN

Once a private hunting club for local businessmen, the land was purchased from the Alger Smith Logging Company in 1910, with the original camp buildings constructed in 1920.

Tettegouche Camp sits within the 9,000-acre park; it has no vehicle entry and is accessible via a 3.5-mile trek from the main park trailhead. Alternatively, you can reach the camp by hiking a shorter -but-steeper 1.7-mile trek from the Lax Lake Road access. Mountain bikes are only permitted on the Lax Lake Road access. You must haul your gear; carts are not provided.

Four rustic cabins clustered together share a shower/bathroom building and a one-room day-use lodge with multiple picnic tables and benches, two fireplaces, and a large screened porch facing Mic Mac Lake.

Available year-round, each cabin includes a woodstove and firewood; a small kitchenette with a two-burner cooktop, mini refrigerator, pots, pans, plates, and utensils; a picnic table and fire ring with grill; a screened porch; and use of a canoe with paddles and life vests.

Note that the cabins do not have bathrooms or running water. We provide jugs and guests may use the shower building or the hand pump to collect water. PETS and SMOKING are not allowed. You’ll also need to bring your own bedding and linens (we recommend sleeping bags). Guests must clean before they leave with provided supplies.
