Visit the Waterfalls and Lakes: Take a hike to the High Falls waterfall, the highest waterfall located entirely within Minnesota. Tettegouche State Park also contains six inland lakes great for northern pike and walleye fishing.

Take a Hike: The park contains 22 miles of hiking trails that overlook Lake Superior, the Sawtooth Mountains, and various inland lakes. Our favorite hike is the 2-mile round trip hike from the visitor center to Shovel’s Point.

Enjoy the Wildlife: Common wildlife observed at the park include the white-tail deer, hawks, red squirrel, snowshoe hare, and much more. Moose, black bear, and the occasional northern flying squirrel have also been seen roaming the park.

Enjoy rock climbing: Break out your rock climbing gear and enjoy some spectacular views of Lake Superior and surrounding cliffs. Tettegouche State Park is one of the few parks located around Lake Superior that offers rock climbing

Visit the Mouth of the Baptism River: The Baptism River flows into Lake Superior near the visitor center. Trails allow visitors to access the mouth of the river.  A cobblestone sand bar creates the perfect opportunity for relaxing, taking in the surrounding beauty of Lake Superior and the river canyon, or just skipping rocks.
