  • Even though it was raining this place was once again worth the visit. I have never brought my kids here and wanted to show them how neat the river and the caldron is. However I did notice that there i...  more »
  • We stayed in the upper campground at site #26 on the lake side. The sites along the lake have great views and a lot of space between the sites. This campground has some of the best campsites of any in...  more »
  • We stopped here to see yet another set of water falls. This was probably one of my shorter hikes to see waterfalls. I thoroughly enjoyed hiking around this park. I think we were slightly early for cat...  more »

  • I wouldn't call Temperance River the crown jewel of state parks in the North Shore, but its waterfalls are worth a stop. Camping near the beach is a perfect place to stay. It's one of the closest places to camp near the big lake. Sunrise is good here during winter and works well for photography from September through April. During the summer, it rises too far inland. When doing the waterfall hike make sure to continue past the top of the first canyon area about a mile along the flats of the river to the second canyon. It's more photogenic.
  • The Temperance River Trail is a great stop if you are looking for bang for your buck hiking experience. If you take the trail into the Superior Trail and onto Carlton Peak then you can literally get a little bit of everything. One of the best hiking experiences I have had.
  • The Falls are fantastic and worth the stop. Mostly easy hike, but the upper falls hike gets a little tricky. To the upper falls and back is about two miles. Nice hike, great pics.
  • Great distances​ between campsites. Clean​ and quiet. Awesome river trails. We spent two nights here in mid April and it was a great time. My only complaint would be a lack of self serve fire wood. So...Bring your own (DNR approved of course) if you are early in the season.
  • If you are looking for a challenging hike, go to the high falls. Lots of stairs and mud but the view is worth it! Had the weather been really nice out, it would have been awesome!
