  • This one is great because you can make it as long or as short of a hike as you want. You can go to the bottom where it meets Lake Superior, then hike up all along the gorgeous falls, and then hike on ...  more »
  • This is a great place to hike for many skill levels. You can enjoy much of the scenery from just a few steps from the road but if you really want to see some amazing falls and what Nature has created ...  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!
