We stopped here after visiting Gooseberry Falls. We were on our way to Tettegouche State Park. We had some sandwiches and enjoyed them. Quite filling and good tasting. Service was good.

I ordered a thick pork chop advertised as tender and delicious. It was indeed thick, but very hard to cut, tasty once I managed to extricate a piece. I think it was overcooked. Maybe it was the knife, though, because it was delicious as a warmed up leftover. As I remember, Doug ordered walleye. It was, he reported, good, but... More

In house smoked meats. Love the pulled pork. Easy in and out and no wait for great barbecue and nice portions. Won't leave broke or hungry.

I think this was our favorite place to eat during our visit. The food was really good, prices were average. Service was always nice and friendly. The atmosphere is very nice and the place was located on our way in and out of the attractions we were visiting. Would really recommend!

But everything else was very mediocre and tasted freezer burnt. My kids didn't even like the french fries. They always like french fries. The rice at came with my... More

Very friendly staff and the pork sandwich was delicious. Even though we arrived shortly before closing we didn't feel rushed and felt very welcomed.

...but I still think the food was great and I wasn't influenced by hot food and great coffee. We tried the pulled pork award winning sandwiches. The decor was an interesting collection of logging and mining period pictures and the staff was very friendly and conversation like you'd expect to find at a small town family owned restaurant. I'm going... More

We always spend several days in Northern Minnesota each year. This is the first time we have eaten at Camp 61. It was so good we ate there two different times. The fresh fish was just great.

We ate dinner at Camp 61 on a Tuesday evening. When we arrived, around 5, it was empty but the place filled up. We are a family of four. The kids had a cheeseburger and grilled cheese. My husband had a BBQ pork sandwich. I had fish tacos. Everything was good. The sandwich people all liked the fries a lot.... More
