If you plan on heading up to the North Shore and are looking for a place to stay, check out the Finland Campground.
The secluded oasis is seven miles from the very popular (and beautiful) Tettegouche State Park and Lake Superior Hiking Trail.
The location alone is worth a drive through.
Tucked into the woods and filled with isolated campsites, day use areas and walking paths that lead you to boulder outcrops on the confluence of the east and west branches of the Baptism River.
Finland offers 39 drive-in campsites spread out along the Baptism River.
The campsites are simple, just a cleared area, fire ring, and table.
All sites are dry camping but there are well hand pumps if you need to fill up your drinking water jugs which are great feature if you are hiking the area.
The campground is open year-round and you don’t need a reservation; it is first-come, first-served basis for a fee.
The beautiful, off the beaten path stop, is the perfect place to pitch a tent, start a fire, and roast marshmallows with friends, grab a rod and fly fish, or if you are social, walk to the cute village of Finland nearby.
