The southern most campsite on the SHT and the only campsite south of Duluth. There are campsites available in Jay Cooke State Park, but these require a fee and must be reserved in advance. This campsite is near the Red River bridge crossing. The campsite looks over the river valley. This campsite makes more sense now, as the SHT has been connected to the North Country National Scenic Trail extending into Wisconsin. Before the new trail connection was built, this was an out and back hike from the Wild Valley Road trailhead.

Another view of the Red River. It is possible to hike down this steep hill to get water. It is easier though to just walk down the main SHT trail and get water near the Red River bridge.
