Do not miss this park if you come to the area. You can park on the highway and then hike down to the mouth of the river and then hike up the gorge to the top. It's not a difficult hike at all. Very good trails and well maintained. We were on awe the whole time and loved it!

The old lava flows along the north shore of lake superior are cut by a series of rivers with fantastic names like: Baptism, Cut Face, Gooseberry, Sucker, Brule and Temperance. The latter is a great place for hiking. There a two gorges and the river rages so fast down the mountain that there is no sand bar at its entrance... More

We'd already seen some waterfalls, but the activities director at our hotel recommended this park, and said we'd really enjoy it. That we did. It has nice roadside parking, which is free, and the early part has easy access. We actually did the lower part of the falls, where the river dumps into Lake Superior. It was truly beautiful and...

I've been to over 60 of Minnesota's State Parks this year and with the possible exception of Gooseberry Falls, this is the greatest State Park in Minnesota for sheer beauty and awe inspiring sights. For this hike you need only park at the wayside rest area for Temperence river state park. The whole hike to see the wonders of the... More

The state parks in America are great. If you want to go for a hike, go to this park. If you park at the rest stop and go off and sit under the bridge it's quite an experience.

Beautiful park with many waterfalls, nice rock beach. Not the best for biking, too hilly for myself and kids. Rangers were a bit "strict" for us. Park was dead on our second night and would not let us park our second car in vacant spots, had to park 1/2 mile away in remote lot. Sites 5 and 6 have beautiful... More

We were in Minnesota for a wedding and decided to go for a hike, so glad we did. It's beautiful, with waterfalls and nice walking trails. I wish I could have spent more time at this park. Well worth the visit. I could not believe how many people were walking around, it's a great way to spend the day. Pack... More

It was a really nice walk. Didn't have to walk far to see the river. Worth stopping for even if you don't feel like walking far.

Pi just spent a delightful 5 days on the North Shore. We stayed at Solbakken Resort and had a cabin right not the lake. Temperance River, one of the many near by parks, was lots of fun. We started with a hike up Carlton Peak to enjoy the panoramic view of the shore. Then we walked the trail along the... More

Park in the lot on the highway and hike down to the beach. The water at the mouth of the river into Superior is warm enough for swimming. Check the depth; we found lots of areas for brave kids to jump from the rocks into the water - AWAY FROM THE BRIDGE AND FALLS. This is by the rocky shore... More
