We were at the state park for 3 days. We had site #30. The 27 foot camper was on level ground but the truck was not. It kind of made it weird to back in the camper since it was up hill. The high falls was beautiful but there were quite a few steps. My dad wanted to see the swinging bridge to see if it was like the swinging bridge at Jay Cooke State Park, it is not exactly the the bridge at Jay Cooke. It is older and did sway more. We also went to the Two falls which was much steeper than the High falls. The staff seem friendly in the new visitors center. All in all it was fun.

This electric site sits on a slight incline. When it rains, the water runs right through the campsite in front of where the door on your camper would be positioned. This site is sadly lacking in gravel and the site turn into a mud puddle. We've camped there for two years now, and won't reserve this particular site again. Recommend Site 26E - it's nice and flat.

Nice visitor's center with helpful employees. Ample parking available. Free. Trail to Cascade Falls had a couple slippery rough areas due to recent rain. Hiking boots and hiking stick needed. Distance is less than a mile.

Stopped with the family and hiked to two step and high falls. Our kids ages 11, 9 and 5 all enjoyed the hike as it's not too strenuous although there are a lot of stairs for those not used to climbing a lot of stairs. The payoff of the falls is definitely worth it.

There's also some decent agate hunting at the end of the river.

While visiting MN my husband wanted to take nature photos and Tettagouche came highly recommended as a place he should go. We were not disappointed! The intense foliage, wonderful smells and the High Falls were a treat to our senses. Being from CO we considered this an easy hike (we could breathe!).
