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.

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
