  • Suggestions for Duluth Area?

    My wife is planning on running Grandma's Marathon in 2008, and we're looking to stay at a near by campground. Any suggestions for "up there"? Form a basic search, I see there is a KOA and a couple others.

    Thanks for any suggestions you have!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Sorry you can't use that new rig this time of year up there. In my vocabulary, Grandma and Marathon don't go together. But I'm sure they do somewhere else.

    Have not camped in Minn. yet so I will have to let others give input there.

      I second that welcome.

      My family and I enjoy the Minnesota State Park system. Jay Cook is a very nice park. There are 21 sites with electric, but no full hookups. We find that the holding tanks easily last 3 days. Just dump on the way out. Jay Cook is about 1/2 hour inland from Duluth. Make your reservations early!

      Grandma's is a great race. I hope your wife enjoys it.

      There are all sorts of campgrounds up the North Shore including other State Parks.

        Our favorite is the city campground at Two Harbors (north of Duluth). It is called Burlington Bay and is right on the big lake. They also take reservations.

          We stayed at Ogstons RV Park in Saginaw, MN just outside of Duluth in 2004.

          It was OK. Not a scenic wonderland but comfortable.

          I would stay there again.

            After 2 weeks on the north shore of Lake Superior we pulled into Burlington Bay CG yesterday. We drove down to Duluth today, a beautiful 30 mile drive along the lake shore. Lots of traffic on hwy61, will probably wait until Monday to visit Split Rock Lighthouse and Gooseberry Falls. Burlington Bay is a city owned park with 2 sections. We are in the new 50amp section with sewer and great water pressure. Wifi doesn't reach us but we have a great view from site P9.
