Throughout Lake County’s small towns, you’ll find up-close Lake Superior scenery, bike and walking paths, picnic areas and playgrounds. 

You’ll find most of Lake County’s city parks are in Two Harbors; however, you’ll also find several picnic spots and playgrounds at local campgrounds and along Lake Superior. 

Families with children (who may not ready to visit Gooseberry Falls yet!) will find the smaller parks a perfect place to play!
