MN State - Cloquet River PDF-1.jpg

Explore the River & Wilderness!

The Cloquet River is a natural wonderland - mixed rapids and wide, smooth area.  

Around the campground you will find area calm enough for swimming as well as Class I rapids upstream and down.  

If you go much further downstream, you can find Class II rapids near the confluence to the St Louis River. 

Canoe, Kayak, or Innertube!

Camp!

The Campground is hidden under a lush canopy of White Pines, Poplar, and Spruce trees. 

The spaces are large - each with a fire ring and a picnic table. 

Water and Electric Hookups are available at the main 11 sites.  Primitive sites are also available!  The bathroom and shower is open to all. 

There's also a gas station and liquor store right across the road.

  • Brown trout 

  • Channel catfish

  • Smallmouth bass 

  • Sunfish 

  • Northern pike

You can buy a MN Fishing license right across the street at the Wayside Corner Store.
