Minnesota winters tend to be a little longer than those in most other states. That means outdoor enthusiasts like us must embrace colder weather if they don’t want to be stuck inside for a good chunk of the year. Fortunately, the Land of 10,000 (occasionally frozen) Lakes offers outdoor lovers plenty to do during all 12 months – and most of our state parks are on board for around-the-calendar recreation, as well. One of the state’s premier recreational units, Tettegouche State Park is even open for winter camping in Minnesota, making it the perfect destination for year-round adventures.


Once set up in the park, you can start your adventures, exploring Shovel Point and the Lake Superior shoreline.

No matter what time of year you visit, you’ll find plenty of things to do at Tettegouche State Park. Just be sure to pack all your winter essentials before you head out – or pick up the gear you’ll need beforehand.
