You should stop in to stretch your legs, get some trail maps for the city, and enjoy the view. The maps and resources are free, and they're happy to answer your questions at the counter. Step out onto the deck and take in the views of the city from atop Thompson Hill, the views are worth it!

This should be your first stop if you plan to explore the North Shore. Usually, by the time you get to Duluth, most people need to get out and stretch and this is a perfect place to do so. Easy to get to and to get back to the highway. Plenty of parking, nice bathrooms and lots of literature no... More

Beautiful view. Definitely a must if you're in the area. We went there early in the morning on a Sunday, so there were only few other people and we got to enjoy the view without any distractions. It was just oh so beautiful.

The panoramic pictures of what you are looking at as you do the Skyline Parkway are very informative. We really enjoyed the place. Lots of information on the area can be picked up here also.Very friendly people that help you.

We stopped here with two Scout crews on our way to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area north of Ely. Good place to get out of the car and stretch your legs to break up a long drive. The View of Lake Superior is great. Lots of parking

Get out and stretch your legs. Clean bathrooms, helpful information. Wonderful views of Duluth. Walk your dog, give your kids your kids a chance to run and enjoy a picnic on the grounds.

What a wonderful rest stop and a great place to have the best views of Lake Superior with out paying for them. A lot of information on not only the Duluth and North Shore area, but all of Minnesota... Although the bathroom was being cleaned at the time, there were ways to spend your time waiting. The parking lot is... More

What a surprise for some place that says rest stop. Nice view and all kinds of tourist information. I was looking for off the beaten track hikes on the north shore and the person at the info desk had some good ideas. Also has coupon books.

We accidentally make it here but it turned out to be worth the stop. The view was awesome. There is travel info and some interesting informational plaques if you want to learn a little more on the history of Duluth.
