Minnesota’s Lake County gives outdoor enthusiasts the perfect natural playground to enjoy endless outdoor adventures: lose yourself in the breathtaking views of Lake Superior’s North Shore, its four gorgeous state parks, many of Minnesota’s best waterfalls, the famed Superior Hiking Trail, and a plethora of scenic bike trails.
Inland you’ll find smaller lakes for fishing panfish and walleye, nearly 400 miles of groomed snowmobile and ATV trails, dozens of rivers and creeks, and charming resorts surrounded by the Superior National Forest.
Up north is a dream for fishing, hunting, boating, or paddling — from the pristine wilderness of the Boundary Waters to the big lake. This is the place to get away, get together, or just get after it.
May your wild spirit lead you to unforgettable adventures in Lake County.
