3 Campgrounds on the Northeastern Tip of Minnesota, July 22-26

Schooner and full moon.
View from where I blogged in
Grand Marias, MN.
Between exploring Grand Portage National Monument and Isle Royal National Park, I also took some time to do some online tasks while in the area.  I found a wonderful place with wifi in Grand Marias near their City Campground and Marina.  Although their rates are steeper than I like to pay, I did get a nice shower and a chance to explore their wonderful town.  Grand Marias is where I found a spot to update my blog with a view.

I also stayed a couple of nights at Judge C.R. Magney State Park Campground.  I loved to return to my quiet little site after a busy day.  The Devil's Kettle hike and waterfall are beautiful.  It was less expensive than the city campground at Grand Marias, but not as inexpensive as the little campground above the marina at the Grand Portage Casino.

If I were to do it all again, I'd spend every night at the Grand Portage Casino Campground.  The view and people watching opportunities were great.  The bathrooms and showers were fairly close by.  It was patroled regularly by security.  And, at $12 per night (tent site), was the least expensive option in the immediate area that I found.  My campsite neighbors said that the casino's restaurant was good for the money as well.
