How to Get to Temperance River State Park: Drive 1 mile north of Schroeder on Highway 61 to the park entrance.

Park Highlights: You can experience the “best of the North Shore” within the 5,007 acres of this beautiful state park.

Explore waterfalls, jagged cliffs, rocky Lake Superior shoreline, deep potholes carved by the rapidly rushing water, and the adjacent Superior National Forest.

A popular spot for photographers is the footbridge that crosses the river. Follow the trail to aptly named Hidden Falls.

Temperance River State Park’s Natural Attractions: Large areas of the park are shaded and forested with pines, birch, and cedars. 

Most of the wildlife that inhabit northern Minnesota may be seen here including deer, bears, fox, shore birds, songbirds, hawks, and eagles.

Things to Do in Temperance River State Park: There are 22 miles of hiking trails throughout the park. The trail follows both sides of the river and also connects to the Superior Hiking Trail. In winter, there are 17 miles of cross-country ski trails and 7 miles of snowmobile trails. Snowshoeing is permitted throughout the park.

Rock climbers love the cliffs that rise up from Lake Superior. Carlton Peak is a popular climb. Enjoy a picnic in the picnic area near the campground. Fish for brown trout, brook trout, Chinook, and steelhead salmon in the Temperance River.

Hunt for agates along the North Shore.

Camping in Temperance River State Park: There are 53 drive-in sites for tents and RVs; the 18 sites with electrical hookups are all in the upper campground. Campsites in the upper campground are quite close to the highway and the traffic may keep you awake. We always reserve a site in the lower campground, which overlooks the lake. It’s a good idea to book as far ahead as possible in this popular state park. Picnic tables, fires rings, showers, and flush and vault toilets are provided.
