    Kayleigh's Bio:
    Hi! I am a public relations major and recent transfer to St. Scholastica. I have an overwhelming love for animals and plan to do marketing/PR for a humane society after graduation. Being here, I’ve definitely fallen in love with Duluth and the surrounding areas. When I’m not studying at a local coffee shop, you will find me running through Chester Park or hiking somewhere up the North Shore. I also own a photography business, so seeing me with a large camera around my neck is not unusual. On campus, I am a football cheerleader and business manager for The Cable, the college’s student newspaper.

Romantic Camping in Duluth?

Yesterday as I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed I saw a post called “Romantic Camping Destinations in Minnesota”. Of course, I clicked on it, guessing the North Shore would make an appearance on the list. Lo and behold, it made the top two spots! The first being Gooseberry Falls State Park and the second Tettegouche State Park (Note: the article spelled Tettegouche wrong). I’ve been to both quite a few times and I think there is good reason for them to be on the list. However, I think I would switch the order and place Tettegouche above Gooseberry.

I’ve never been on romantic camping trips to these two parks per say, but I guess I can see how camping up the North Shore would be romantic. In the description, it says that Gooseberry is like walking into a vintage fairy tale. I mean, yeah, I can agree with that. I actually thought of that same thing when I was last there. However, with all the people walking around the falls I don’t find that romantic. If I was going out camping with my significant other, I would want to be in a secluded area of the park where I don’t wake up to kids trying to convince their mothers that they can go swim in the big waterfall.

In Tettegouche’s description, it says that it’s the perfect place to get down on one knee. That one I can agree with. Tettegouche State Park is beautiful and Silver Bay doesn’t get as much traffic as the towns closer to Duluth. I love the Superior Hiking Trail through Tettegouche and it’s big enough to make a fun weekend out of it.

However, I’m not an expert on romance at all, so what do you think? Is Gooseberry the perfect vintage fairytale to escape to with your significant other? Is Tettegouche State Park a place to become engaged to the love of your life? Take a trip this summer with that special someone and find out for yourself.

There is so much to see up the North Shore and definitely not just limited to those two parks. And trust me, you don’t have to go with a significant other. Camping, hiking, or backpacking in that area is beautiful enough to enjoy without that someone by your side. So grab your friends (or your dog) and go explore!
