Campground near Gooseberry Falls?

9 posts in this topic

I was planning on going up to the Gooseberry Falls area in late May sometime with our 5th wheel. However from what I found is that the Gooseberry campsites don't have electric hook-ups. Does anyone know of a good private campground in that area that would be good for us for a weekend..at a good price? I could look a bunch up but I wanted to know if anyone of you had experience with any. Any help would be great.

Also I haven't been up there for a few years so do any of you have good ideas or places that we shouldn't miss going to?

City of Two Harbors runs a campground. It's right on the highway.

There's a few to choose from.

• The Knife River Campground on the scenic drive, about 5 miles south of Two Harbors. Very reasonable and nice folks. We've stayed there many times.

• There's Penmarallter Campground a couple miles closer to Two Harbors, again on the scenic drive.

• You can also try the Lax Lake Campground up past Silver Bay, off of Highway 1. Never stayed here, but it looks nice.

• The Two Harbors campground is called Burlington Bay Campground. Have stayed here many times. Nice place and you can get a great lake view.

• I believe that Lamb's Resort in Schroeder also has a campground with hook-ups.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the help. I think we're planning on heading up there the last week in May so I'll call around and see what happens. It would be nice to have a lake view from the campground at Two Harbors so we might try that. I appreciate the help.

I would highly recommend Lambs, we stayed there last year and waking up to the sound of waves hitting the rocks on Lake Superior was awesome, very nice campground the people were friendly and everything was very clean. The location is good also, we golfed St. Croix National, rode those mountain slides and spent a day in Grand Marais and didn't have to go far to any of those places.

We stayed in a Tent, it was great, the site was like three tiers, one up above for parking, one with table/fire pit for eating, then walk down below right to the shore, like I said, I would highly recommend Lambs. (Get a shoreside site!!)

Lamb's is very nice but it fills up fast like all parks and campgrounds so reserve early.

Well we've been back for a while but I figured I better let you guys know that we stayed at Lambs Resort. It was nice and clean. We got a lake shore sight so we were pretty much right on the lake. It was quite a haul to get up there (think that next year we'll try to get into the Two Harbors campground). But it was well worth it because we were so close to Grand Marais (a place I wanted to visit while up there). Well worth the trip...can't wait to get up there again.

    • I wouldn't be surprised to see Fletch pull something during the "break". That would give that person time to come in and get acclimated to the surroundings. I am sure the players will be having some "skates" along the way, but no organized team activities. They cannot even practice until after 5:00 the day before their first game back! That is why the results are so poor coming out. Its one thing to skate, scrimmage-like, but practice is a completely different animal and I am pretty sure the players are not going to voluntarily "bag skate". I think this is a big night tonight. Go into the break on a high note. Wouldn't be shocked if Kuemper started, but I would expect Dubnyk.  
    •   You've heard of the Whiskey Rebellion, I assume.   One of the first examples of federalism.   The Washington administration's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion met with widespread popular approval.[112] The episode demonstrated that the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws. It was, therefore, viewed by the Washington administration as a success, a view that has generally been endorsed by historians.[113] The Washington administration and its supporters usually did not mention, however, that the whiskey excise remained difficult to collect, and that many westerners continued to refuse to pay the tax.[33] The events contributed to the formation of political parties in the United States, a process already underway.[114] The whiskey tax was repealed after Thomas Jefferson's Republican Party came to power in 1801, which opposed the Federalist Party of Hamilton and Washington.[115]
    •   Danged tootin' it was, Del-o-rama!    Sure, I no longer drink, and they finally change the law....thought it woulda been 20 years ago. That was one of the most asinine ones we've had yet. 
    •   I am concerned about the $$$. Near $20 trillion in debt and rising along with deficits predicted to rise and more and more people becoming dependent on some kind of government assistance makes me so. I'm as fiscal hawkish as you can get because math always wins,eventually, over good intentions, religious beliefs, and emotionalism. It's one of the main reasons I didn't vote for Trump. I am waiting to see his first budget proposal if he can eventually get around to it between his Tweeting and whining. If he eventually does make real budget cuts and proves me wrong, he'll get my vote in 2020 but time will tell. Both the welfare and warfare state will need slashing   Someone mention further increase in automation. It will be interesting to see how that effects these programs and government spending over time. Taxing robots probably won't work but they will mean fewer workers will be needed, especially low and mid skilled workers, to do the same job.
    • Sweet!  Ill be posting a report from our 3.5 day trip over the weekend.  In the Canada section.    Question for you.....we saw a Cadillac Escalade with tracks and a big walleye decal on it.....was that the Blackwater Cats guys?
    •   So the pee pee video stuff will or won't come out...?
    • Just blows my mind to be honest why we allow such a good state to be so far behind in regards to laws. Why we can't use more than one rod in summer is crazy..
    • Jim, I have an Ion and love it but given the choice today I can understand your hesitation in the decision. I'm not sure I wouldn't lean toward the Fuel and KDrill. Reverse is a must so Strikemaster would be out for sure. Reverse isn't the end all for cleaning slush, I still use a slush copter, but it does allow you to clear the slush on the drill and not have to bring it all up into the house. Either way you'll have a great combination. The Fuel drill is a nice thing to have around, it's a drop dead brute, unlike anything else out there!
