The Superior National Forest has many free campgrounds on beautiful lakes. The fishing, canoeing and hiking trails were excellent. Check out the National Forest website for locations and amenities.

This is real wilderness. Moose sitings are common on the forest trails and the Gunflint Trail. The lakes are wild yet serene. Trail Center Lodge serves the best steaks -- but Windigo has the best bartender!

The views alone are worth visiting the Superior National Forest. I highly recommend hiking the Carlton Peak and spending the night near Temperance River.

Not exactly in Duluth. It's about 1.5 to 2 hours drive from the City. The visitor center is in Duluth, but that's it.
