Intriguing because of its narrow gorge which has created many potholes along the bottom of the river.

This park is amazing. We have been here many times over the years and the flow of the rivers on the north shore this year was spectacular with our rainy summer. It has been fun to see how things change from year to year. Always...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 the state park system. If...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 catching the fall colors, but still a beautiful park...More

To enjoy the river/waterfalls/gorges here, you only have to walk a couple of minutes from the highway, so I highly suggest getting out and stretching your legs here if you are journeying up/down the North Shore. You have a great vantage point of the river...More

The Temperance River Gorge is a must see stop on the North Shore. The river has a series of very large potholes and water falls. There is a short but steep climb to the best views; definitely worth the effort. The trails have recently been...More

We loved our stop here. The walk was so beautiful, the falls were awesome. We have not done this walk before, but we won't miss taking it again. Breath taking for sure.

We took the short walk down to Lake Superior. We were told that the trails going up stream would take more time than we had for that visit. The downstream trails are well maintained and safe. Stating the obvious, it is much easier going down...More
