Probably one of the most popular State Parks in Minnesota with uncounted photo keepsakes taken by more than half of the population of the state. We visit this park on every trip to the North Shore.

Come to Tettegouche for a great sense of the North Shore: the spectacular overlooks at Shovel Point; rocky, steep cliffs and inland bluffs; the cascading 60 ft. High Falls of the Baptism River; and the historic Tettegouche Camp where visitors can stay the night.

Camped at Tettegouche on my bicycle trip up the north shore in 2010. Great campgound! Of all the campgrounds I camped in along the north shore, this one is the most wooded and private! Also this one has the most wildlife!
