Having hiked a lot of the North Shore trails we decided to visit this park and were nicely surprised. We took the middle trail and had a nice payoff of cascades at the end. Will return to try out some additional trails.

It's called Lake Benson, all within the park. A wooden boardwalk goes all around the lake. It's about a half hour walk (3/4 mile).

This is a primitive park inland from Lake Superior with a lot of hiking trails. We took the easy walk on the boardwalk around Bensen Lake - nice scenery, no people around

The trails in the entire North Shore area are wonderful. Manitou State Park didn't disappoint. A nice hike for all ages.

Very secluded and rustic SP. if that's your thing than it's perfect!! Trail to campsite was not to scale. But the site was worth the effort and breathtaking! Sleeping next to the river = amazing! great water source!
